On the Edge
Strong game on home ice from the Canucks led by the much maligned Luongo. Roberto shook off criticism and played a solid game shutting out the Bruins 1-0. Thomas played spectacularly to keep Boston in it, but the Canucks looked like the better team on this night. Crisp passing and quality rushes seemed to indicate that they were about to break out, but Thomas kept them at bay until Lapierre banked one in off Thomas after what looked like an intentionally wide shot off the boards. Vancouver is on the edge of a title as they fly back to Boston.
Count me as one who hates the two days off between games. They could have had a good audience on Sunday night, but we get carried over yet another day. It's more of a buzz kill than an interest build.
