GAME DAY BITCHES

Get a load of our fellow Justice League: Twitter edition cohort. @faqu94 sends his best along with a picture of himself getting ready for Game 7. @michealrioux later pointed out: “I love how he wolfed down a bag of Old Dutch chips right before the pic."

Classic case of crushing Old Dutch and taking an epic pic if you ask us.

Game 7 for all the beans is all that’s left Nation. It’s a good old fashioned GDB: SCF7.

THE GREAT WANYETO

"It’s time for bold action and declarations of victory. Good luck fellas. Bruins 5 – Canucks 2"

– The Great Wanyeto. Before Game 6.

NOT TOO SHABBY

As a person who sold his TV to attend Game Six of the 2006 Stanley Cup Finals, we can identify with the importance of the big old W the Bruins were able to take home. But the Oilers shaped hole in our heart can attest to the fact that Game 6 wins – no matter how dominating they may be – do not a Stanley Cup winner make.

So when we say good luck to the Boston Bruins we mean it, understanding that as a fan the loss stays with you for a good long time.  But as a player what are the odds are you are going back to the Finals again in your career?

Someone with a calculator! Quickly now! What percentage of NHL players in the SCF have appeared in a Cup Final game again in their career?

Can’t figure it out? Har har har.

Neither can the Canucks it would seem.

Go BROONS. Win it for Tim Thomas.

    I had a dream last night that the Canucks won it 5-2. I told my fiancé this and her reply was “don’t worry none of your dreams have ever come true”. Like WTF is up with that 🙂

    • Max Powers - Team HME Evans

      Just thought of that. Imagine the Vancouver Canucks are to be the LAST TEAM TO EVER WIN THE CUP?!?!

      Then again, if all goes right in a way… they might never EVER win a cup.

      Either way I hope the world doesn’t end in 2012.

  • justDOit

    2 GA in 3 home games should tell me to pick the C-c-c-c-c… the Can-un-un-un-un… uh

    Screw it! 3 – 1 BOSTON! Marchand = game winner, Recchi = empty net goal. MVP = TT! Timmah!

  • Max Powers - Team HME Evans

    Oh boy. This is gonna be a good one. This has got to be the best finals series I can remember seeing other than the 2006 SCF. As long as this game doesn’t really suck it’ll go down as epic in my books.

    P.S. If the ‘Broons’ win tonight then the replays of the hit Thomas had on Sedin will be replayed for years and years to come. Right up there with the image of Bobby Clarke’s toothless grin as he holds the Stanley. A timeless classic. Just a prediction.

  • I HAD A DREAM, NO not that DREAM. But a REAL DREAM last night:

    First Period: No scoring

    Second Period:

    PP Kesler ( Bieska, H.Sedin)

    Sh Higgins(unassisted)

    PP Kaberle (Peverely, Seguin)

    Third Period

    D. Sedin (H.Sedin, Burrows)

    Marchand (Chara, Ryder)

    Empty Net: Burrows ( Bieska)

    NUCKS WIN NUCKS WIN NUCKS WIN THE STANLEY CUP!

    COnn Smythe winner is: ROBERTOOOOOOOOO LUONGO!!!!!

    BOOOK IT!

    P.S.

    Flames will take Mark Mcniel we will take David Musil

    out

    • Souby

      Luongo wins the Conn Smythe?….Seriously. The guy has let in so many goals in Boston that he is still applying the Aloe Vera lotion to the sunburn on the back of his neck!

      Win or lose, the Connie should go to Thomas. The guy has been stellar and far above Luongo.

      Goalie Comparison: Thomas is stopping the puck as if it were the size of a beach-ball. Luongo has played 3 games this series where he couldn’t stop a beach-ball. Which goalie shows up tonight, LOOOOOO or Red-Light Luongo?

    • Couple of things wrong with your prediction

      1) The Canucks are going to score 4 goals in 1 game on a guy who theyve only scored 8 goals on in 6 games? Get real

      2) Tomas Kaberle is not going to score. You have to shoot the puck to score goals.

    • hamzinoilcntry

      nice troll work. Can you be considered a Conn Smythe Trophy candidate when you have given up 16 goals in three games in boston. No matter what outcome happens in the game (go Broons) Tim Thomas is gonna be taking that particular piece of hardware with him when he leaves.

      book that!

  • All I know is that if the Broons win tonight (and they must) Steve Lanksy is going to be either really happy or really frightened.

    Wish they sold old dutch ketchup in Australia, I would crush a few bags and wash em down with a cool bottle of Canadian Dry.

    Ah, the things you miss. Along with hockey being on in the evening instead of at 8 am.

    Gonna catch the game with a couple Canadian friends here in Perth, a loyal Vancouver born Nucks fan who is nice enough to let us watch on his slingbox. And a guy from TO who is mercileslly made fun of for being a Leafs fan. I am the Oil fan and will be cheering the Bruins of course. A Sens fan may show up as well.

    Bruins 3-2 in OT, Seguins beard scoring the winner and making us all argue again.

  • Travis Dakin

    In honour of this epic event, I have changed my profile pic to one of me as an 8 year old, sporting a B’s jersey. It is strange because the picture was taken a mere 4 months after the Oilers defeated the Bruins to win their 4th Cup. I had a thing for jersey’s back in the day so it’s acceptable. I never did own a Canucks jersey though. Always despised them.

    Imagine that, I would have rather worn the jersey of a hated rival like the Boston Bruins back then, than that of those dirty Canucks.

    That hate runs deep in my blood.

  • OilerLand

    Nice pic, old Dutch mmmmmm

    I had a hankering to watch boys on the bus this week – anyone know where to get it online?? Tweet me @NHL_Imagineer

    Go Broons go Thomas- jinx luongo!!!!!! If Boston wins I’m going streaking.

    • “What percentage of NHL players in the SCF have appeared in a Cup Final game again in their career?”

      I don’t know but here’s a fun fact, kids: in 1919 the Stanley Cup Finals between the Montreal Canadiens and Seattle Metropolitans ended in a no decision due to the Spanish flu epidemic! Kerpow! Zowee!

      For the love of Brule!
