The Boston Bruins are the 2011 Stanley Cup Champions, and B's fan far and wide are celebrating. Yet while one fan base is celebrating, another is mourning.
Nucks Misconduct, the Vancouver Canucks blog in the SB Nation network, took a look back at Game 7, the rioting afterwards and the entire series this morning. Despite the loss, they were good sports about it.
Congratulations to the Bruins on their Cup win. They were very effective at shutting down our offense, and they also deserved to have their Cup drought end. Kudos to Stanley Cup of Chowder visitors for being great to talk to, and for welcoming us to their blog.
According to the blog, the Canucks just didn't give their best effort in the final game of the season. While the Canucks' couldn't bring home their first Stanley Cup, they took a step in the right direction, according to Nucks Misconduct.
Now, the Canucks themselves. Let's face it: that was a bad game. Seriously, if you're in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, you should be giving 100000% effort. And, probably due to injuries, what we saw last night was not that. However, in an attempt to be positive, I will say that we have gained significant ground this year, and we probably shouldn't need to tear apart our team this summer to fit back under the salary cap, so I see a bright shiny thing in our future.
