If Kesler scores, we win.

If Luongo doesn't score a goal we lose.

Not really about the bandwagon, SJ is lights out at home where as we were supposed to be really good at home as well. Already your chances from coming back from a 2-0 deficit are hard, let alone having lost both your home games. It is very realistic to assume losing tonight will mean the end of the season soon.

I know you're being facetious, but I would love if the Canucks approached the game with the strategy of scoring more goals than the other team.

Much better than the current game plan of "keep the game as tight as possible and hope a puck deflects in".

It seems rash to say the series is over if the Canucks lose, but heading back to San Jose down 0-2 could very well be a death sentence in this series. Of course you don't want to give up but the Sharks lost 2 games in regulation on home ice all season...

If the Canucks fail to win tonight, they are in very, very tough going forward. Biggest game of the year tonight.

That's not bandwagoning, that's reality. Coming back from 0-2 after losing those games on home ice is extremely unlikely.

This is effectively a must-win game for us.

Just hate how our "fans" lose faith and give up. I suppose my main piont was more about the attitude of our "fans" then the bandwagon jumpers.

Hence the reason for the lack of optimism if we fall behind 0-2 in the series. Margin of error becomes pretty much nil.

Canucks morning skate cancelled - only Luongo and the Black Aces taking the ice, and very few players available for the media, according to Twitter.

Sincerely hoping Kesler's stomach virus was not contagious.

Is it normal for the Canucks to cancel a practice on the day of a huge playoff game? If Kesler made everyone sick, I'm going to cry.

Maybe Kesler should've coughed on every Sharks player during game 1 & shook each of their hands after that game.

Daniel, Kesler, Bieksa and Lapierre are the four Canucks available to the media this morning.

Good. All of the leaders on the team. I wonder what beauty quotes Dan Sedin will come up with tonight.
'we can't play average the entire night'. yeah, probably something like that.

I ain't hard to please - I'd settle for an average night from the Sedins as opposed to the **** performance from them in game 1.

I have something for the twins tonight...

Seriously. If I see another opportunity in prime shooting position, ES, or PP, or whatever, and they PASS...Especially Daniel, there will be a hole in my TV.

Even then we may still lose. Lui's gotta come up clutch scoring at least a hat trick for us to have a chance.

Whoa! Crazy that scoring more goals than the other team is how hockey games are won!

Sadly, we don't seem to get that concept.

WE ARE NOT NASHVILLE AND WE SHOULDN'T BE PLAYING LIKE IT.

Faith in what? This is just a re-run from last season. It's like going to a movie and walking out unhappy because the movie sucked, then going back to that same movie a week later.

I was having a little fun earlier with google traslate (Subban from Swedish to English... check it out) and had a great idea...

Everytime one of the Sedins touches the puck in the offesive zone tonight the fans should yell "Skjuta! Skjuta! at the top of their lungs.

Maybe they'll get the message.

Do you even know how to pronounce that? I like to think I'm good with pronunciations but even I'm having a hard time with that.

At least hip and shoulder problems aren't contagious. =\
