Got to love CBC. Full-on sensationalism and condescension at it's absolute best. "The Vancouver Canucks all over the Edmonton Oilers after one period!!!!" Sorry, Dubnyk made about three or four nice saves in that first period but it wasn't a dominating effort in the least. Both teams looks disinterested to me. One just directed more pucks towards the net.
Also, good job refs. Miss a blatant high stick and two borderline boarding calls and call a little tap on the back. I realize that this is Ben Eager that we're talking about but that's a ******** call.
I haven't listened to Simpson call games very much over the past year but it's safe to say that he's been totally infected by the Canucks disease. Occasionally, he displays his orange and blue colours but for the most part it's "Ra ra the Canucks are amazing."
I am at the game right now about 15 feet from Dubnyk. Kid's rebound control is iffy but he's made some dece stops. Also, watching Horcoff's line play hockey makes me want to cry. Dudes look old as HELL. Always surprised by how slow the game looks from ice level.
Also, this 8 dollar beer sucks. Numbs the pain pretty good though.
