That’s it. It had to happen. The Canucks would find a place where they just could not take it anywhere and by the looks of it, they and John Tortorella found it tonight.
The Canucks have been struggling to find a new ‘them’. A new way under Torts. Torts is fantastic though, focusing on the mental first and taking the media pressure off.
We may not get a Stanley Cup this year, we may not make the playoffs, but i sure as hell feel a lot more confident in the future under Torts. They found their passion again and I found mine. Simple.
In the end the Canucks won in a shootout 3-2.
Good news: CBC got a clue and used Rick Ball on the commentary.
Bad News: Henrik goes day-to-day. Poor man is a bit beaten up.
Over 200 penalty minutes served. Torts confronting Flames after the 1st period. Insane.
