HAHAHAH this is great. But, its not so much him as it is the rest of the team. They're playing like shit and trying to be something they're not. The first game it was obvious they were trying to come out and throw their weight around and it didn't work out so hot for them. Obviously not having Daniel Sedin hurts them. Watching Henrik try to do everything himself with everyone else standing around really shows how weak this team is without the "twins".
Ryan Kesler is the difference in this series. He's back to doing all the stupid shit talking and pushing and shoving after the whistle (so is the rest of the team). Last year he was all hockey and played up his skills and it showed (just like the rest of the team). This year, him and the Canucks seem to be trying to be "tough guys" when they're not and its not working. They've lost their identity and they think they're playing in the cup final when its only the first round.
Quick has been pretty solid, but the Kings are a 8th seeded team for a reason and they're good but not that good. I worry that if the Canucks get their heads out of their asses, they'll turn it around and show the kings what for.
The kings are making the canucks look down right foolish and its great to watch. The total depression by the fans and the gasps by the CBC announcers are hilarious. At the end of the game it was all RED ALERT! WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON! and it looks like not a single person on the canucks bench has an answer. I'm relishing every minute of it. The total collapse of an elite team with expectations of a championship and nothing less (especially after the riots last year) by a scrappy underdog team that nobody thought had it in them. This is great hockey.
Add on it the Philly/Pens series and its been great playoffs so far.

I never rooted for the kings until this last weekend. God its beautiful watching the 'nucks eat shit from out of nowhere
The Sharks need to get a grasp on some discipline before the next game or else the blues power play is going to destroy us. That game could've been tied in the most dramatic fashion had Winnik not acted like a jackass...
I was at the game on Sunday! It was really intense! I was anxious for about 2 hours. After the game we met this couple who came down from Canada for the games in full on nucks gear. The guy was wasted and looked like he wanted to cry. They were staying in Beverly hills and looked sketched out being in downtown LA with fans getting crazy. I felt really bad for them, asked them if they wanted a ride since we were going to Westwood , they said no. I think they thought we were gonna do something to them. Downtown was crazy after the game. I am super bummed because I wont be able to watch the game tomorrow!
