5-3 loss.
I think we will win this game, but get wrecked in game 4, hopefully not, but that is my gut feeling

If Schnieds and Schroeds play, I think we win.

Guys, Memphis Grizzlies won four straight after being down two against the Clippers. That's practically the Vancouver Grizzlies ergo practically Vancouver Canucks.

I believe.

I like that reasoning. I'm choosing to be optimistic, I'll worry about the what-if scenarios once their season is done. I think they will take care of business in SJ. Maybe by getting out of the Rogers Arena pressure cooker, they can focus and play solid road games.

Really they just need to take it one game at a time. Just focus on wining the face-offs, win the next shift, win the puck battles, keep getting scoring chances, play a disciplined game.

Woaaah -- CLASS OF 1984 reference! I love this movie. Early Michael J. Fox appearance. Nice one, Zombo.

I have no silly predictions for this game. Just gonna go to my fave bar, get myself a couple of delicious ceasars, wear my Canucks jersey, wave my white towel when (and if) they score, and enjoy the fact that *MY* team is in the playoffs. Whatever happens, happens. Out of my hands.

So, basically I'm gonna celebrate the fact that I'm not a Flames fan. ^_^

I would just like to remind you all of this simple fact:

Scoring solves all goaltending problems.

Goaltending only solves some scoring problems.

Lu or Schneids is immaterial - if we score three or more goals, everything is golden.

It just makes me feel that much worse seeing toronto able to kick up their game and even their series on the road against a much tougher opponent where they are outmatched in almost all category.

Canucks fans in San Jose meeting anywhere? Heading down for games 3 & 4 with no pregame plan.

If we lose, the series is pretty much guaranteed lost.
We have to win the next two games.

It's the Canucks, when have they ever done anything the easy way. But here's hoping they weather the storm and come up with a win in this one. Go Canucks!

Blake Griffin got injured. And Memphis lost the first two on the road

Too bad we're not playing the Clippers.

I wish today was an afternoon game just to get it over with.

We desperately need the Twins to have a big game. Kesler has shown up, Luongo has given us a chance to win, now our star players need to play like star players.

I feel cautiously optimistic about tonight - the Sharks were unbelievably lucky to win Game 2.

Kesler, please save us again. If Kesler can put in a performance like last game and the Sedins show up, we have a chance. You guys can do it!

Does anyone else think that the Sharks are going to try and troll the hell out of the Canucks tonight? They were behaving while they were in Vancouver, but I just have a feeling that we are going to see some more of Couture putting his glove in Burrow's face during the opening faceoff type antics.

I hate the refs so much. That penalty on Garrison showed that we will have to beat the Sharks and the refs. The Kings/Blues get to pretty much run each other over, but Garrison can't even give someone a tiny push. That isn't even a penalty in the regular season.

One of the cheapest calls I have ever seen in over 30 years of watching hockey.
