It's called BRUINS!

Ok, so this was the joke of an ad campaign a few years ago, but now it's the Gospel!
This is the type of hockey to watch! I dare anyone to watch these playoff games and NOT become a fan!

Right now I think it's too late for the Canucks...they remind me of Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. Pounding Rocky for most of the fight, and then ROcky tags him. Tags him good..."He's cut! He's cut"! Remember that? The Big Russion gets cut, and Rocky realizes he can be beat..

Horton's Hit started it, and Game 3 is the Rocky moment. Luongo has been figured out and now just looks scared. The Canucks are a finesse team, can't take a punch and the Brooons are punching. Hard.

So I think it's going 6.

And is there anything better now?

In hockey, the last 2 minutes actually last 2 minutes. Unlike football where timeouts and out-of-bounds, not to mention replays can make the 2 minute warning become the half-hour warning. And basketball is worse. Two minutes to go, and you get timeout after timeout, fouls upon fouls, free throws and free throws. Endless.
