Last night, the Vancouver Canucks had the chance to sweep the defending Stanley Cup Champions, the Chicago Blackhawks, out of the first round of the playoffs. They failed- miserably. After winning three straight, the Canucks lost, 7-2, and for that last point, the Hawks weren’t trying to defend.
With the series lopsided in one direction, and the game lopsided in another, the final period was an exercise in what do we call/ don’t we call for the refs.
Tonight, my brother’s favorite team, the Detroit Redwings also have the chance to sweep. Will they have better luck than the Canucks?
