Canucks post-game SixPack - a bad beard + CAPTION CONTEST

Comments
sixpack-higgins

Vancouver was two points ahead of Calgary and three ahead of L.A. with all three teams playing on Monday night.

Since you’re going to OD on suspense from the Canucks this season, we’re not going to add to it here. The most important result: Vancouver beat St. Louis 4-1.

While that was happening, L.A. lost a 4-1 game to Chicago and Calgary beat Dallas 5-3.

Some fans might be upset seeing either L.A. or Calgary have any success, but over here in SixPack land, we’re rejoicing. Vancouver vs. Calgary in the first round is the series we’ve been waiting for since 2004.

Let’s just hope both teams keep it going while L.A. keeps losing.

1. First the standings

If you’re a massive Canucks fan, chances are you’re checking the standings four times a day at this time of year. Since we like to simplify your life you can eliminate one of those hits to NHL.com…

Two points up on Calgary + five on the Kings = one high five to your wife/husband/dog/your other hand right now.

2. Learning lessons

Think it’s too late in the season to be learning?

They got it. Instead of losing the lead and losing in overtime like they did against the Stars on Saturday, the Canucks scored two more to ice the win.

3. Radim makes the smart play

Radim the Dream is also learning.

Vrbata had the puck on a 2-on-1 with Chris Higgins and as he skated towards the net, every Canucks fan rose from their seat – don’t pass to Higgins, shoot the puck dammit!!

What did he end up doing?

Thankfully, he did the right thing.

4. What does Bonino’s beard look like?

Nick Bonino did the right thing after St. Louis tied up the game halfway through the second.

Did Bieksa mean to miss? Probably not. Here’s a good tweet to avoid getting blocked though.

Nick Bonino did the wrong thing choosing to grow a Chris Higgins style beard.

He looks like something familiar. I can’t place it…

Nailed it.

So why the beard?

Yikes. Maybe.

5. Blake and Rob made a joke

This appeared in my timeline today.

Can we get a LOL here? OK a smile?

Pretty sure Coop’s response was the winner.

6. A “real good” caption contest

When the Blues tied up the game halfway through the second, Canucks fans didn’t feel too good.

Neither did this guy.
