NO WINNER NO WINNER

This is L’il Wayne, Birdman and Mark Cuban celebrating the Mavericks NBA Championshop in Miami last night. If we don’t want to see a similar scene featuring Tom Cochrane, The Odds and Ryan Kesler somewhere in Boston tonight, the Bruins are going to need to step up to the plate.

KARMA IS BEING KIND (SO FAR)

Believers in sports karma are quite content today in the wake of Lebron, Bosh, Wade and Co losing to the veteran laced Mavericks. Even if you don’t care about basketball in the least – and really who can blame you – you should be able to identify douchebags by sight and appreciate the fact that a bunch of players that deserved the Championship beat out a bunch of nerds who didn’t.

It translates well into tonight’s game if you ask us.

Watching the tens of thousands of Canucks fans partying in the streets of Vancouver after the Game 5 win and remembering the ghost town that was the Game 3 and Game 4 aftermath – we can’t help but grind our teeth and hope for the Bruins to pull out a win at home tonight followed by another win in G7.

Vancouver cannot win the Stanley Cup. Not like this, not with this collection of easily hateable players. Tim Thomas cannot be denied. The Zombie Chara cannot be denied. Even Tyler Seguin’s ratty tribute to Colonial England Beard Stylings cannot be denied.

TWITTER ZOO

Also – if you are on the Twitters and enjoy this type of highbrow humour, there is going to be a sass talking extravaganza tonight you can be sure.

Follow us here and let us know you are in the game.

It’s time for bold action and declarations of victory. Good luck fellas.

Bruins 5 – Canucks 2

  • Anyone know where I can get a reset button just incase the Knucleheads somehow are winning with 1 minute left in the third??? Work all the time playing NHL 1996 so why can’t it work in real life??? We’ll just pertend it didn’t happen and start fresh next year.

    Oh Yeh…. @putzstew

  • SLURVE

    C’mon boys, give credit where credit is due. Vancouver is a much better team and deserve to win it all for the marbles. We (Oilers) will get our cup again in 4-5 years.

    Lebron was asked to donate $1.00 to a charity fund raiser but only contributed 75 cents. When asked why that was, he said he couldn’t come up with a fourth quarter.

  • The Pestival

    Wanye, your 5-2 prediction is the stuff of legend. Thank you for providing me with this boner of admiration that I will now enjoy for the next 48 hours.

    • SLURVE

      “Wanye, your 5-2 prediction is the stuff of legend. Thank you for providing me with this boner of admiration that I will now enjoy for the next 48 hours.”

      Wait,wait… I will go get you towel…Nooooo, not on Wanye’s new berber!

  • The Farmer

    Well done Wanye I couldn’t stop laughing thinking of the Luongo pics all game and when your score came true it’s just about unbelievable. What’s the good word for wednesdays game ?

  • Love Monkey

    Wow! Nice work Wanye!

    @todd – are you freaking kidding me??? Even if the refs were out to get the Canucks (which they clearly weren’t), it didn’t matter since the game was already 3-0 thanks to Louuuuu-ser and his 0.650 save percentage in Boston.

  • Todd is the typical Vancouver fan. When they have all the calls going their way (legitimate or not doesnt seem to matter) they say “the refs are doing great” but when the calls arent in their favour (again, legitimate or not doesnt make a difference) they are all up in arms. If i was the refs i would be against vancouver with all their whining and diving.

    BTW I wonder if fans in vancouver were “cheering for Schnieder” again…. ha

  • Wanye knows. Understand this now and forever, O nuckleheaded ones. Dickishness will not go unpunished in the sporting universe. Wednesday night, Loulou Lemon will be enshrined with Lebron “I’m taking my talents to South Beach” James in the Sports Hall of Hubris. Take a sucka that, Kesler.

  • Chris.

    Hey Wanye, great call on the 5-2. Bragged you up at a kitsilano bar here in Vancouver. My three favourite moments of game 6:
    1) Marchand scoring on the B’s first shot of the game
    2) Healy saying “The Canucks couldn’t win a World Cup with six goals nevermind a Stanley Cup”
    3) The Luongo crucifixion @ 11:25 of the 1st period.

    Solid gold.

    ps – rocked the Oilers hat in Kits tonight. Got a ton of atta boys from the locals. GOILERS.

    @Wanye

    …The LouLou art? I frickin’ laffed my ass off

    i hadn’t seen it …waaay too funny&spot on

    Game Seven in Vanchoker? can’t wait

    Your prediction? wow!

    priceless!!!

  • O.C.

    Mason Raymond fractured vertebra. No indication which one other than in back. Out 4 to 6 months. Hopefully just the process ( one of the boney tips), and not the body of the vertebra.

    I really don’t understand what Vigneault was thinking last night. On Boston’s second shot just 5 minutes in, Luongo allows a snap shot that’s high-short side. It was a bad goal; Luongo had a clear view and there’s no excuse for letting that float by his shoulder. Nonetheless, I understand that sometimes you just accept that life is hard, grit your teeth, and move on. Just three shots and 30 seconds later, though, a soft wrister trickles through his five-hole. He needed to stop that too.

    Right then, right at that moment, Vigneault needed to recognize something. Luongo has been completely shelled his last two games in Boston. He’s now back there and he’s allowed two soft goals on five shots. His confidence is somewhere between badly F’d up and nonexistent. As a coach, you need to get Luongo out of the net right then.

    You can argue that pulling Luongo at that point might have been a big confidence-kill in and of itself. I don’t care. Down two goals early in the game, you still have a chance to come back and win the Stanley Cup that night. If that happens, Luongo’s confidence or lack thereof won’t matter a damn; he can find it again in the off-season. Even if you lose, Luongo can chalk it up to demons in Boston and come home and pitch another shutout in Vancouver. Whatever you decide, there is no way anyone should have realistically been thinking at that point that Luongo was going to buckle down, exorcize his demons, and stop all the pucks for the rest of the night.

    By the time Vigneault belatedly figured that out two-and-a-half minutes later, the damage was done. Down 3-0, I think most of the Vancouver team decided that history was going to repeat and had mentally checked out. They were already gearing up for Game 7 in Vancouver at that point, not gearing up to finish things in Game 6.

    That one single decision – to keep Luongo in net after the second goal – I think that could well have cost Vancouver the game. It’s yet to be seen if it might also have cost them the Cup.

  • It’s been really unfair for the Nucks. HOw does Boychuck not get a penalty for interfence on Maser? NO HE SHOULD NOT BE SUSPENDED. What is Marchand doing punching Sedin 6 times in a row? Kesler is getting mugged!

    I am confident and will go MARK MESSIER on ALL OF YOU.

    VAN WILL WIN

    3-2 OT Burrows winner

    BOOK IT!

    • Mantastic

      there are lots of calls not made in the series… that was one of them. why did kesler punch chara with the refs between them?

      didn’t you call van winning games 3 too?

    • Negative Props.

      Your whiny, diving, edamame eating, greasy, no good, biting, tire pumping ringette team deserves every bit of the beat down they received.

      Fair? If Fair had anything to do with it the Blackhawks would have completed the comeback and we wouldnt have to hear this crap about the referees, the league, and the conspiracy theories.

      I’ll tell you what Marchand was doing punching Sedin in the face 6 times. He was playing for the Stanley Cup in the biggest game of his life. What the hell was Sedin doing just standing there and taking it? That’s my question.

      Your heartless club deserves the worst and the worst only.

    • justDOit

      Ouch! I never thought I’d hear a ‘Nuck fan quote Messier! He played horribly in Vanlandia, at what – $21M/3 yrs?

      So we should also ‘book’, that you’re quoting Mark ‘NYR’ Messier.

      Sad to say, I don’t see the home team trend being broken in this series, so you’re probably pretty close.

      I’ll say Bos 3 – Van 1, with Marchand getting the winning goal.

  • Admiral Ackbar

    Daniel taking 4 jabs to the head from Marchand and looks at the ref. Bloody disgrace, on Daniel’s part. Marchand is is a bloody bulldog, and don’t blame a dog for being a dog. He’s just doing what he needs to do to win, this is the way the finals has been since forever. I hope Chara swallows the Sedins whole tonight with no trace remaining, no teeth, no proof of existence, nothing.
