Morning pressers from Game Day, Malhotra out and lots more. 2 1/2 hours to game time!
I survived my first media scrum. I am sad to report that I had to use a reporter for Iceland to batter my way out though, but his sacrifice won't soon be forgotten...
The Stanley Cup Finals are set to start Wednesday June 1st. And when the puck drops between the Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins, Nucks Misconduct will be there, and we really mean BE THERE!
The reality is sinking in this morning, and the Vancouver Canucks are heading to the Stanley Cup Finals. How we got there, and why.
At best Vancouver needs some sustained offensive pressure At worst they need a hero and some puck luck. At a minimum, you're about to see a hell of a third period.
