The only difference is that the city of Boston did not have a riot after the loss.

But ironically, the city of Montreal had a celebration riot over the Bruins loss:

BTW, The Beaverton is Canada's version of The Onion--they do try to make Canadian themed news parody (some attempts are better than others).

There was a mini-riot in TO last night after the Raptors win--though there are conflicting reports of how much (no fooling).

I agree with Robbie. Watching that game also made me think back to Game 7 in 2011. The Canucks could not get anything going even though they outshot the Bruins 37-21.

Last night the Boston home fans got a taste of their own medicine--it was deathly quiet in there. Marchand was crying in the dressing room interview after the game. As Don Cherry said, his careless line change caused the goal that made them lose all momentum--after they spent most of the time dominating play with nothing to show for it.

I was in Hong Kong during the 2011 riot here and I was reading posts on a Van soccer site where local senior mens players on their way to the game were saying at 5:30 on that the crowds near there looked like serious trouble coming up later. These 20-30 year olds were saying it looked bad and they were on the way to the game!

Congratulations to Canucks centre Elias Pettersson for winning the Calder Memorial Trophy as Rookie of the Year. :good:

Only the second ;canucks: to win the award after Pavel Bure in 1992.


祝加拿大加式足球聯賽不列颠哥伦比亚卑詩雄獅隊今年贏格雷杯冠軍。此外祝溫哥華加人隊贏總統獎座·卡雲斯·甘保杯·史丹利盃。還每年祝溫哥華白頭浪隊贏美國足球大联盟杯。不要忘記每年祝溫哥華巨人贏西部冰球聯盟冠軍。
改建後的卑詩體育館於二十十一年九月三十日重新對外開放,首場體育活動為同日舉行的加拿大足球聯賽賽事,由主場的卑詩雄獅隊以三十三比二十四擊敗愛民頓愛斯基摩人隊。

At the draft, the Canucks (somewhat surprisingly) use their 10th pick for winger Vasily Podkolzin. He had to speak through an interpreter and is contractually required to stay in Russia for two seasons. Considering the Nikita Tryamkin misadventure (but there is a chance he might end up returning) there is an element of risk involved with this pick.

Today they made two deals on the draft floor to get J.T. Miller and Francis Perron.

Miller is not worth giving up a 1st round pick.
