Vancouver Canucks NHL Western Conference Champions
Well, the Vancouver Canucks are returning to the Stanley Cup Finals. They defeated San Jose Sharks, 3-2 in double overtime last night to take the series, 4-1. The story can be found here.
It has been 17 years since they last made the Finals eventually losing to the New York Rangers in 7 games. This team has had it flashes in the Conference Finals and Roberto Luongo came up big in this game. In review of the series, I have to say that this team continues to be inconsistent. They showed little offense in the last couple games. But, they made it count when the opportunities arose. The 3 goals scored during 3 5 on 3 opportunities in game 4 swung this series into their favor and sealed the Sharks fate.
Congratulations to the top team of the league!
Now, I am 9-4 overall in this year’s predictions with +5 on number of games played.
