Kevin Bieksa spoke out about the Boston Bruins "Game Jacket" last week, saying the little team bonding tool that's given to the hero of the game after each win is something that should be reserved for pee wee teams.
As it turns out, his Vancouver Canucks might be a pee wee team as well. The Canadian Press points out that, as seen in the Canucks locker room Monday before Game 6, they have a little motivational tool of their own.
A picture of the trophy on top of a mountain gets a carabiner added to the chain with each successive victory. Heading into Game 6 on Monday night, they were one win away from completing the link on a picture that reads "No Shortcuts To The Top."
Bieksa was asked about it, and he didn't really want to talk to reporter Chris Johnston about it, calling it "privileged information", "our own personal thing" and "our jacket."
