With one of the weirdest series clinching goals you will probably ever see, the Vancouver Canucks has punched their ticket to the Stanley Cup Finals and await the winner of the Bruins and the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Trailing 2-1 with just under .30 seconds left in the game, the Canucks touched the puck in their own zone for the whistle on a misguided icing call. Just trying to get the puck out of the zone and kill the rest of the clock the Sharks defensemen iced the puck all the way down the ice and allowed an offensive face-off for the Presidents trophy winning (Best record in NHL) Canucks, and boy did they ever take advantage.
After leaving the ice earlier in the game with a leg injury, Vancouver all-star Ryan Kesler returned to tip home a Hendrik Sedin shot with just .14 seconds left in the 3rd to tie the game and force overtime.
In overtime Kevin Bieksa gets his 5th goal of the playoffs on an awkward bounce off the boards that left everyone on the ice wondering where the puck even ended up. But Bieksa never took his eyes off the puck and one timed it from the point low glove side that beat Nieme while he was still trying to find the puck.
This all being said the Canucks look at the top of their game right now and made quick work of a very good San Jose team. The last thing the Bruins need is to let their opportunity to end the East Finals slip away and allow the series to go to game 7. We need to end this fucking series and we need to do it TONIGHT. No fucking around this time, we need to come out flying and banging and take care of business and take the flight over to Vancouver for the Stanley Cup finals. They can’t just rely on that “over rated bum” (FU true sachem) Tim Thomas to save them again. We need to play Team hockey and have some offense in this one and not just good goaltending.
So hopefully the next time we see the Bruins skate at the TD Bank North Garden is game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals. So everyone go out tonight and cheer on the B’s and Let’s fucking get this one huh????
