I hate sounding like an unfaithful fan, but I'm going with the prediction Ducks in 5. That being said, I'll still be pouring my guts out for the Canucks. They're just too good... loaded in every aspect - especially defensively with the duo of Pronger and Niedermayer and then you've got Selanne and MacDonald. The Ducks is better than us in every category aside from goaltending but I'd hate to imagine what kind of things they'd be doing to break down the wall on our end, especially with their goon reputations. Luongo, once again, will be our only hope and biggest factor.
Hopefully the Canucks are able to improve their special teams esp. the Powerplay, I can't stress this enough. It helps you freakn win games and winners capitalize on everything, especially given chances. Not to mention the Ducks does run into discplinary troubles at times with their abusive physicalness, and that would be something the Canucks would have to capitalize on if they want to stand other chances against the Ducks aside from relying on our goaltending. Ugh Ducks are just too scary good .. but I hope the Canucks will surprise and prove everyone wrong.
So happy with last night's win. BC was drunken in crazed fantasy! Cars honking everywhere and streets were crowded with proud fans. Great series with Dallas - thank god for Zubov not playing - it definitely helped us big time as he had been the shut down for the Sedins. The Sedins weren't able to cycle because of him and without him they've got our strongest offensive threat generating again.
