This series of blog posts will look back on the highest highs of last season, and hopefully get the Canucks faithful amped for the season to come!
The Vancouver Canucks are only days away from their 41st season. It’s like Christmas up in here (up in here, up in here), so why not an advent calendar to build the antici … ! Partly because of the high expectations after the greatest season in Canucks history, and maybe partly to help to dull the pain of the Stanley Cup Final. And to apply a new Band-Aid to the festering wound known as the riots. #LoveVancouver
30 days to get back to playing Canucks hockey. 30 days to get back to winning games.
Today’s memory: Last season on March 31, 2011, the Canucks won the President’s Trophy with a 3-1 win over the L.A. Kings.
With half the fans already running for their next beer, the Canucks took a 2-1 lead late in the 2nd period with this beauty on the rush by Christian Ehrhoff. Jannik Hansen drove end to end, and fed Ehrhoff a great pass into the high slot. Thankfully I make a point of not paying $10 for beer in a plastic cup, even if it does have a super-sippy lid.
Anyone else out there have any memories of this game?
