The Greatest Game In Vancouver Canucks History...

After going up 3-0 in the first round of the playoffs, the Vancouver Canucks lost 3 straight and came within inches of a catastrophic defeat. They won game 7 in a dramatic overtime victory that had many Canucks fans calling sports talk radio shows declaring this to be the greatest victory in team history. There was even debate whether it was a better moment than the gold medal game in the Olympics. It is exposes the sorry state of "great" Canuck memories, in a fan base that has memorialized a loss in the Cup final as though the team won. If narrowly avoiding an embarrassing first round upset is now the best moment in the history of your franchise, that doesn't say much about the history of your franchise.

Vancouver needs a Cup very badly. If for no other reason than so Sportsnet can stop running those 1994 tribute montages.
