Tom Tips His Hat to Everyone but Greg Millen

By Richard Eriksson on April 18, 2004 - 9:53pm

Tom Benjamin writes in his Vancouver Canucks weblog he is tipping his hat to everyone involved in the Vancouver Canucks-Calgary Flames playoff matchup. After tipping his hat to both teams:

A tip of the cap to Ron McLean, Kelly Hrudey and Chris Cuthbert who all did yeoman's work throughout a very long night. Cuthbert kept up with the near frantic pace. Hrudey was at his best, particularly when explaining the game to us. He is the only analyst who will pick out a Bryan Allen and follow him through his entire shift. McLean was the perfect foil even though he did ask the stupidest question of the night. "Do you think the Canucks miss Todd Bertuzzi in this series?" (I'm only tipping caps here, so I'm not going to say anything about Greg Millen.)How Do You Spell Relief?

Greg Millen has been ridiculous during the series, especially—but not limited to—game 5 in which he repeated the rule about nets coming off its mooring and then returning 5 times in the minutes following the controversial first goal against the Canucks. Evidently some pubs are showing the CBC TV broadcast but with the radio play-by-play in protest, which is too bad, because Chris Cuthbert is the best play-by-play announcer for the CBC—can sometimes make the games sound more exciting than they really are.

Round One Game Six: Vancouver Canucks 5 Calgary Flames 4 (3OT)

By Richard Eriksson on April 18, 2004 - 12:01am

That was one of the most exciting hockey games I've ever seen. It's definitely in my top 5, and is even possibly the best. For six minutes in the third period the refs put the whistle away and both teams traded chances. But you want to know the funny part? I didn't even see Canuck goals #2, #3 and #4. (Me and a buddy were en route to a restaurant, and we heard about goals #3 and #4 when walking down Robson street, as a roar went up from the various apartment complexes and restaurants with TVs.)

Can you believe the overtime periods though? Gelinas poke-checked by Auld on a breakaway. Niemenen hitting the cross bar. This should have been Calgary's series, but Morrison's goal early in the third overtime (I could barely take the first two after the Flames came back from four goals down to tie it) erupted the restaurant I was watching the game with, it turns out, 6 Flames fans.

Game 7 in Vancouver on Monday. So much for my pessimism, eh?

Vancouver's ever changing weather - Granville Bridge Looking North 6:51 p.m.

Vancouver's ever changing weather - Granville Bridge Looking North 6:51 p.m.

The oh-so-changeable Vancouver weather never ceases to amaze me. Not having grown up so close to the mountains and the ocean, the volatility of the weather here is a constant source of puzzlement! Today was dreary in the morning and early afternoon and then sunny in the early evening. This kind of thing happens regularly!
