As the original thread is archived as most have no doubt lost interest  The 2011 Stanley Cup Playoff Thread (by elbandgeek Apr 10 2011 in Non Aviation)#menu56

The team everyone loves to hate, the Vancouver Canucks are one win away from the conference finals after taking a 3-1 series lead against San Jose today after a stellar first period PK and a lethal second period PP during three back to back 5-on-3's.

In the east, Boston & Tampa Bay are tied 2-2.

Well, I cant see San Jose winning three games, particularly if Thornton is injured. Sure, the play hasnt been perfect, and on Friday the amount of penalties given up was a joke, but the Canucks deserve to be where they are, no questions they are the best team in this series. The sisters have finally stepped up their game, Luongo while he has to make an obligatory booboo per game has generally been solid and Salo & Bieksa have led from the back and weighed in with goals, and Kesler... well, we dont need to talk about him   He defeated Nashville on his own.

In the east, most would have said Boston are favorites, the fact the series being tied aside seems to be a genuine reflection that the teams are pretty evenly matched and this is going to be a tough one to call. First game seemed to be a bit of a surprise that Boston were comprehensively beaten, but they then come back with two wins including a 2-0, a clean sheet is something at this level. But they collapsed horribly in game 4. Does that give Tampa some momentum? Rolason seems to be a weak spot, so Im going with Bruins in 7, you cant always rely on out scoring the ones you let in.

Vancouver vs Boston final.

Well I was, and still am rooting for San Jose; however the chances of them winning does appear to be very slim now. I will agree that Sunday nights game certainly showed why Vancouver deserve to be in the final and I am quite happy to see them there. In the east, I prefer Tampa and am holding out that they can and will win 2 more games to make it to the finals.
My prediction now is Vancouver / Tampa with the series lasting 6 games.
I'm usually horribly wrong at these prediction, but we shall see.

Whoever makes it, whoever you are supporting it has to be agreed that this years playoffs have been home to some amazing hockey.

Kev.

Well, Boston are up 3-2 in the series after a 3-1 win in game 5. Some heroics from Thomas to keep them in it, but I dont think theres much between these teams so far. Could easily have been a 2-2 game and the third was an empty netter.

Vancouver just beat San Jose 3-2 on 2nd OT in game 5 to win the series 4-1 and advance to the final for the third time in 40 years and the first time since 1994. SJ dominated in shots, but any doubts in Luongo's abilities have to be squashed after an outstanding performance with 54 saves and a goal from Kesler who seemed to be suffering from an injury to tie the game with 13 seconds left of regular time to take it to OT.

Wow, this could really be our year in Vancouver. This is the first time the Canucks really have a chance at bringing the Cup home.      

In any case, and I know a lot of people who hate on him will disagree with me, Lou totally deserves this shot at the cup. Nobody has worked harder and been more dedicated to the team than him. Yeah he had a few rough games getting to this point, but the fact of that matter is that he kept the faith and delivered 9 times out of 10 when the rest of the team gave up and did jack all.

Bottom Line: If any other goalie deserved to go the final more than Lou, than the Canucks wouldn't be there.

Tampa just beat Boston 5-4 in another high scoring game. So this will go to a game 7 on Friday which is obviously bad for Boston who could have wrapped it up tonight, but good for Vancouver as whoever they get to play will be tired and there will be chances of more injuries getting picked up.

Again, I think there is little to call between these teams and this really could go either way. Both are able to score a lot, but are leaky on the back end with inconsistent goaltenders. I think it will be tough for either to beat Vancouver who are superb defensively and have an in form, confident and very able goaltender in Luongo with the ability to create and score goals from everywhere and each line. I think the Canucks need to get on and take advantage of the tiredness and draw some penalties, use their PP and take a 1-2 game series lead like they did against SJ. Will be very tough to come back from that even with the inevitable rally and as we have seen all season, even if under the hammer and outplayed, they have enough quality and depth to hang on and do the needful, even if its against the run of play, and get it done.

Quoting dlowwa (Reply 5):

Youre telling me. The best team lost on the night, but overall Vancouver deserved the win as the better team of the series. And you know what, this team has been superb since, what, September?? I think they deserve a little bit of luck to go their way too now and again. As always at this level, it comes down to individuals having a moment of brilliance - or stupidity. Kesler is the talk of the town and rightly so, he basically defeated Nashville on his own last series, then he puts SJ to bed by not only coming back on with an injury and basically one leg, but then get down to block a shot then score as he did... you need guys like that to do something like that to get through. Im loving Bieksa's game this season, and what a good thing he was the only guy on the ice who knew where that puck was! Two moments of brilliance right there. Of course, the Sedin's were also excellent and more on Luongo in a sec.

Quoting dlowwa (Reply 5):

Not sure either, and I agree with you. As I said, both have weaknesses in their goalies and what we are seeing in this series apart from game 2 is relying on outscoring their opponents to compensate. You cant do that against Vancouver... that being said, there are no easy games at this level and it will be tough, probably a 7 game series. If they could choose, my feeling is I think they would go for Tampa for the reasons you say. There are some big mean guys in Boston like Chara who the dainty sisters would probably prefer to avoid and I think Tampa would offer more exciting hockey and allow particularly the top line to play the way they like a lot more.

Quoting dlowwa (Reply 5):

Got our wish! Sure hope Kes is OK, more for him than anything else after doing so much to get the team here - Im sure he will insist on playing even if he had an amputation... But its all part of the act, keep the opposition guessing if the star man is going to be there or not, or at least on how many cylinders he will be firing on, and keep the fans slightly more subdued too if they think the same. You can almost guarantee game 1 he will let everyone know he is there - BOOM

Ive tried to avoid comments like this so as not to jinx them, but it really does - its going to be now or another 10+ years. I dont think the teams and fans in the east are that familiar with Vancouver (and vice versa) but we have seen them play like this all season and I think we have become used to how good this team is. Apart from some major hiccups against Chicago, they have carried on with more of the same and the glowing stats that were achieved in the regular season are continuing to be achieved in the playoffs. On paper, they have to be the favorites, but they just cant be complacent, a couple of bad penalties and bounces and its the difference at this level.

100% agree. He does not get enough credit. He does let in too many goals he should have done better with, BUT when that happens all the other sometimes miraculous saves are forgotten. On Tuesday, yes the twins played well, yes moments of brilliance from Kesler & Bieksa, but Luongo almost single handedly won that game. It was not the first time he did it, he has being doing it all season and you dont go to the final by being a crap goalie. He has an Olympic gold medal and hes now taken his team to the final. Thats a pretty elite group to belong too. He deserves praise and many may disagree, but of the three goaltenders left, I think any coach would choose to have Roberto between the pipes.

Quoting TheCol (Reply 7):
Boston is going to be really tough to beat.

Not a good show against them back in Feb. You cant expect this to be easy, be it Boston or Tampa and despite being so good, Vancouver do still have a nasty tendency to make things hard for themselves. The hockey is different in the east and they may not be able to play the same tricks to dig themselves out of a hole at this level. Yes, this is the best chance we will have, but its by no means a done deal and they need to really focus on not getting into any kind of hole. Im thinking there is going to be a boom in heart medication sales in BC...

Not to take a cheap parting shot, but I would like to see less officiating being a deciding factor in these major game outcomes. Call what needs to be called, but do it consistently for both teams. In the SJ OT they let all sorts of stuff, mostly hooks, go from both teams. Let them go at it 5 on 5 as much as possible please...

I'm a hockey fan from across the pond, and am a huge Bruins fan. I watch as much NHL action as I can on ESPN America. It's through watching Hockey Night in Canada that I have developed such a love for the Bruins - seeing in the titles the game-winning and Stanley Cup-winning shot from Bobby Orr in game Six of the 1970 Stanley Cup finals.

So I have to say ....

GO BRUINS!!!

Anyway, the Canucks take game one with a 1-0 win 18 secs from the end. Pretty even game, story of great goaltending from both sides. The slightly better team won IMO...

I do somewhat agree with the madness though, the parties and celebrations are somewhat premature.

I only have a passing interest in hockey, but after having been to Vancouver three times, it's hard not to have a soft spot for the Canucks, even if I wouldn't classify myself as a fan. I won't be watching the game (not on free-to-air in Australia), but I will say ... 'Go Canucks!'

As was 1982. And 1994. But, since it is Boston (and the market) I am guessing the powers that be at the NHL will want and need Boston to win. They don't want to see any Western Canadian team to win. Too much to apoligize for and too much back-side kissing to do. It is just easier for the governers to allow an east coast team to win.

Thomas almost stole it for Boston, but he was far their best player and I dont think he can keep up the one man show. He let in quite a few goals against Tampa for example. Shots were about even, but Vancouver had by far the better real chances. I thought the third line was fantastic, and their effort was well rewarded with Torres' goal. Hopefully we have the strength in depth Boston dont.

I dont want to buy all the conspiracy theories, but you do half wonder sometimes. At least they made 6 calls apiece, including a 5 on 3 apiece then put the whistle away for the 3rd, which produced the best hockey inevitably. They they need to realize thats what people are paying the good money to see. Hopefully the Canucks are good enough to win despite all this as they have done up to now and prove all the naysayers and haters wrong the stats are not all a big fluke.

So a 2-0 series lead for Vancouver with a 3-2 OT win after a 2nd goal from Burrows just 11 seconds into OT after Daniel evened it up.

Boston gave it all they had and very nearly did it and outplayed Vancouver in the 2nd period. I dont think Vancouver were clear favorites, but they did what they have been doing all season. Somehow, when 2-1 down, its almost seems inevitable they will come back to win 3-2.

Its going to be tough for Boston to come back from 2-0 down in the series, not that they are not going to win a game or two.

As for those pesky fans some love to hate, there are an estimated 100,000 in downtown Vancouver, and after the first real decent say of summer on a Saturday, maybe, just maybe celebrations may be in order.
