Despite the support of dog nation, the Canucks beat themselves last night with a less than stellar effort in the biggest game of the year. Sure by halfway through the 3rd period, they were rolling ... a bit ... Burrows (the Uni-brower), sniper of 2 goals this year (and half a dozen disallowed markers) jammed one home to give us life - enough where we knew one of the lads would come through in Overtime like so many times before in this the "season of one goal games," right? Someone *will* score.
We all made our picks but no one chose what happened - shoot, the shooter was heading to the bench unaware he'd scored. Luongo knows what happened, he won't forget for quite some time.
So now is the time we seek positives to take away - i spieled on this for much time last night in my post-Neidermeyer haze - but the "isn't it super how we did better than expected" feeling is settling in my belly like a Denny's hangover breakfast - a bit queasy now but should absorb the poison ... eventually.

Just before OT in Game 2 versus the Ducks, Dave and Dan Funboy review the recent action including the pandemonium following the Game 7 victory over the Dallas Stars. They talk about heroes - both new and vintage - stepping it up for playoff glory, plus outline key matchups against the Ducks and highlight noteworthy performances for and against the Stars.
Finally, after the late night win, Dave recounts Cowan's heroics and drops in a few recent mainstream media appearences (CTV, CBC, CKNW + Dallas Stars podcast and Vancouver Courier).

An energy is building in this city and who knows how far it will go. According to statistics we have never had a stronger hockey team than the 2007 Canucks. Currently up 2-1 in their first round against the Dallas Stars, the team has potential to bring this city to mayhem (let us not forget the '94 run to the finals). In light of this feeling of community, organik has planned a musical performance to dazzle sports fans between periods, as to 'keep the party going'. So slap on your jersey or lucky socks, underwear, or whathaveyou and bring it down to earls on fir (1601 W.Broadway) this Thursday @ 7pm for a night of entertainment sure to make it a game to remember (even if we lose). Watch the game, enjoy the food, guzzle some drinks, and stay for a post-game set by the band. Indeed go canucks go, because the further they make it the more organik playoff nights there will be at various locations throughout this great city of ours. For more info on the band visit www.organiktheband.com and be certain to subscribe to (or-blog'nik) to receive all the latest news delivered straight to your e-mail inbox. See you at game 5!!
