I have mixed emotions about the drubbing the Canucks put on San Jose this evening. It's one thing to break the opposing team's will but it's something quite different to give them a rallying point. The turning point in that game and quite possibly the series took place in the First Period when San Jose rattled one off the post. If they score on that play, the Canucks are down by two goals. Shortly thereafter, the Canucks score two within 39 seconds and the game totally changed. I can totally understand why Vancouver ran up the score. The hit on Daniel Sedin could have been a series determiner. Instead, the refs wrote it off as embellishment on Daniel's part. I don't have a problem with the call as the Canucks made the Sharks pay on the resulting power play. The Bieksa/Marleau "fight" could be considered a bit of payback as well. From that point on it was the Ben Eager Comedy Hour. I hope he returns for a re-run in San Jose on Friday. He has single-handedly revived the power play and given the Canucks all the will to bury these guys they could have hoped for. Friday will be interesting to say the least. It's just unfortunate that these teams like and respect each other so much. Thorry, my tongue jus got sthuck between my teef.
