Game Over | Series Over | Season Over

May 3, 2007

This series was lost in Game 4 when the Canucks gave up a 2 goal lead.  Going down 3 games to 1 left them in a position to lose the series on a bad call or fluke play.

In Game 5, both those things happened.  There was no call on Rob Neidermeyer for elbowing Hansen and then a lousy fluke goal was scored by his brother Scott.

Game 4 meant the series.

I have a hard time believing Luongo let in a shot like that after playing so incredibly awesome throughout the entire game.

Its not too often that a goalie loses a 2-1 game with a better save percentage than the guy on the other end, but that’s basically what happened tonight (save for the flurry of saves Sabourin had to make early in O/T).

Roberto, it wasn’t a good goal, but you didn’t lose this game.

The questions will start tomorrow. 

The answers will come slowly over the summer. 

We have to remember that we have a great team.  We were missing Cooke & Kesler for almost the entire playoff run, thenSalo & Bieksa for a number of games as well.

For a decent team with limited depth, they did all right.

The reality is that with a higher salary cap next season, they have the ability to bring in a bit more depth.  And hopefully that will bring in a few more goals.  Roberto is going to be just as good next season.
