And it’s definitely a good rivalry. Even the 2001 playoff series was great, aside from the third period collapse in game 4. Those first three games were some of the best hockey of those entire playoff, although no one would know it by looking at the stats that show a 4-0 series.
In the last two years I’ve been able to watch Sakic, Roy, Forsberg, Drury, Tanguay, Hasek, Hull, Shanahan, Fedorov, Yzerman, Lidstrom, Chelios and more do their thing in the playoffs right in front of me, not on the tv screen. It doesn’t get much better than that. Er wait, it could.. if the Canucks could find a way to win a damned game at home.]]>
