If I get my hands on tickets, I already have my blue afro and facepaint ready.

It's too bad we can't organize together a colour to wear at the game. It'd be SICK to have a sea of blue at Rogers Arena.

Excited doesn't fully describe my feelings right now...let's get it on.

Going to be too many corporate people at the game, esp lower bowl - tickets are so expensive, the crowd is kinda lame a lot of the time.

That would be rad though, can't remember any "blue" crowds in the NHL - I think the Tar Heels do it in NCAA basketball (powder blue), looks awesome.

It's a lot easier to organize something like that a collegiate level.

And yes, you're right, there will be plenty of suits at the lower bowl ruining things. Maybe Rogers Arena should just ban anyone wearing a suit from entering the venue.

I remember last season's playoff games... Were quite disappointing. Plenty of early leavers, plenty of people too cool to get up and cheer.

Purely speculation on my part; but AV seems pretty happy with Raymond at center for the moment.

Going to be at work - anybody got any stream recommendations now that atdhenet is not showing NHL?

Man if Detroit wins, that Dallas game will be really hectic. I don't have much faith in a Crawford led team to deliver in crunch time.

Bring on L.A.. Easy prey. Without Kopitar are the a 90 point team? For sure they are not a playoff team. Believe they managed 12 goals in their last 8 games. Their pp is terrible now far from the team who scored on 6 straight chances last playoffs. They have a couple good defenseman but no star up front to score the goals. Couldn't pray for better opponent. They play good defense but how are they going to score. It is Nashville without the goalie.

Then again, LA is probably still angry about us knocking them out last year, so they might surprise us. And they have big physical forwards who aren't afraid to play like Byfuglien.

Dallas would be the easiest team for the Canucks to face. They have a good group of forwards, but their defense is god-awful. And their goaltending can be crap at times. Also, the Canucks have dominated Dallas all season long.

But quite frankly, I would prefer the Canucks to face Chicago. It should be an exciting series to watch. And if...I mean when...the Canucks won, they would have a ton of momentum since they finally beat the team that has haunted them the past two years. And it would shut up all the critics.

Puck drop at the Madhouse.

Early delay of game for the Wings after some good pressure from the Hawks.

Hawks are 4-1 against the Wings this season. Let's hope they keep pace and win.

The Wings seem to have a bit more life than the previous game, but the Hawks are more or less dictating the pace still at the moment.

Man if we play the Hawks, and we beat them. I think that would be the happiest i'd ever be as a Canucks fan.

I'm good with whoever we get right now. I'm just glad we aren't playing Anaheim.

Still, for travel purposes and keeping the team fresh for a long playoff run Chicago or Dallas would be pretty brutal.

Chicago wins and they play Anaheim. One point and they play SJ Lose and they are either out of the playoffs or play us. Lol

You needed to be in the upper bowl. I went to game 5 vs LA and it was rocking up there.
