Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

Thomas and Roberto Luongo seemed determined not to let any puck get past them.

Lapierre had an open look and capitalized for his second goal of the playoffs.

Game 6 is Monday in Boston. Vancouver is about 10 minutes away from going there with the series lead.


Whew. First team to one wins? Boston and Vancouver are scoreless going into the third period.

Boston’s Tim Thomas has 18 saves, and Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo made 21.

Lots of opportunities, but they just can’t find the back of the net.

Who might break out and score?

Patrice Bergeron has five shots for Boston and Dennis Seidenberg four. Daniel Sedin is tied with three other Vancouver players with three shots.

The big swing and a miss from Tanner Glass could come back to haunt the Canucks.


Remember Vancouver’s Jannik Hansen’s goal early in the third period in Game 3? Don’t worry if you don’t, it only made the score 5-1 in an eventual 8-1 loss to the Bruins. It’s also the last time the Canucks have scored.

They are struggling with their offense and failed miserably on the power play in this series. They attacked Tim Thomas hard in Game 5, leaving him sprawled on the ice late in the second period. They just couldn’t convert.

Tanner Glass whiffed when Thomas was briefly out of position and left an empty net.

So the scoreless streak goes on.
