The Giants blew it. Couldn't take advantage of the many scoring opportunities they had in OT.

One of the best hockey games I have seen in some time.

it'll be a miracle if the Rockets win this series without Shea Weber ... blow a 2 goal lead in the 3rd

To be Frank, Kelowna is lucky to come out of this with a split...

They really are.

The Giants didn't play very well in this game (especially compared to game 1) but they were able to play solid on the PK in the 3rd period and battled back to tie it. How they didn't score on all the opportunities they had in OT is beyond me...

I hope this isn't a confidence killer for the Giants though.

Anyone know what the Coliseum will be like on Tuesday? Are they expecting large crowds?

Hopefully there will be a lot of people there. They having been getting around 7500-8000 for the last few midweek games. Since this is the playoffs, I wouldn't be too surprised to see between 9 and 10 thousand. If they come back to Vancouver for game 6 on Saturday, it wouldn't surprise me to see the place get close to selling out... maybe 14000-15000. Attendance should be pretty good consdering how good the first two games have been and how exciting rockets-giants games have been all year.

Wow, I seriously underestimated the attendance for tonight. Almost 13000 people at the Coliseum tonight to watch an amazing comeback. Hopefully the Giants keep playing like they did in the second half of tonight's game. I'm guessing if there's a game six here on Saturday night, there's a good chance it will sell out.

Well game 5 is over and done with. The Giants lost 3-2. A few points from watching it live on TV I'd like to comment on and see if anybody else sees things differently or the same:

1) Schwarz has some SERIOUS rebound control issues. He also makes spectacular saves on difficult shots but lets routine stuff get by.
2) On the Rockets 3rd goal, the Giants D (on a two on two) MUST step up and take the body not BACK skate and screen Scwarz
3) Did Brule even play in Kelowna last night? I swore I heard his name once or twice but geezus has he every invisible. At least Courchaine came to play.

Brule got 4 points in 6 games and he only got points in two games, because of mostly Spurgeon. Moisienko also checked him when Hay was trying to get Brule away from from Spurgeon. I was impressed with Brule's effort and how fisty he is.

How was Meszaros in general in the series? Was he counted upon heavily?

Meszaros was great like usual. And he is always heavily counted upon. He did so much for the Giants this year especially with Fistric gone most of the season.

I went to the game, the atmosphere was great, very loud and reminiscent of Canuck games. The giants had a lot of opportunities on the PP to convert but couldn't get it down. Kelowna took the crowd out of the game in the 2nd that night and thats where they won the game I believe.

Also that game was the biggest crowd at any junior hockey game in BC.
