I am watching the games at home as i can't stand my friends doom and gloom.

So be warned.

Also, though Luongo was outstanding. Schneider seems to start, and if he can bring the game he brought this season. Be scared.
We are. Canucks win with 4 in a row and Sharks blow it up. Nemo sux so it shouldn't be too hard, not to mention mediocrity at the Tank this year.
Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.

@FarhanLaljiTSN: AV confirms Schroeder will not play tonight. Won't confirm if Ballard plays. IF he does, it could be as fwd. #canucks

This game is getting more and more interesting. Puck drop can't get here soon enough.

Luongo has been a wall early on in games, especially in the 1st periods.

The one thing tho is for sure, Luongo's value went up during this playoffs.

I guess I am just a bit bitter, Hopefully I am proven wrong.
Luongo has played really well, and has been one of our best players this series, but he hasn't stolen anything. He was arguably outplayed by Niemi last game.

It's crazy how similar the Sharks and Canucks are. Both haven't won a Stanley cup, both have aging cores, and both are probably going to fire their coach or blow it up if they lose.

Schneider lets in 5 goals in the 1st period, Luongo lets in 5 goals in the 2nd period. The Sedins disappear, Kesler gets injured from a Garrison slapshot, and both Corrado and Kassian spontaneously bust.

Just would of liked to see more offense. Hopefully Ballard is in and not Ebbett. He can be our Brent Burns.

If Schneider is healthy he will start unfortunately. Can't go with luongo if this is the guy you want as your future starting tender. Logically doe and with politics aside luongo should be starting. You can't bench one of the few players who has show up but there are outside factors in play that play to schnieders favour.

I can't explain why but the Canucks do tend to play better in front of Schneider.

Theories over the last two years range from Schneider sucks so the team knows they have to play better to get a chance to win, all the way to Schneider is so much better that the team is more relaxed and can play there game better.

Ballard playing up to his potential is as good a player as Burns. Unfortunately, we will never see that Ballard so he can maybe be a Burns lite. One can hope.

Wouldn't be as bad as living in BC, high cost of living vs working in Alberta oil fields + low cost of living.
