C’est le Toque!!! Canucks beat Stars in Seven!

Yup, just as planned … the chat worked and the CANUCKS win!  What a thriller!  You couldn’t script it any better!  The city is abuzz as neighbours took to the sidewlaks and corners to wave flags, honk horns and holler for their heroes.

Thanks to Hotwheel, Bob Sugar, Kevin w/o nickname, Dan Funboy, Iowa JohnSurrey Girl (both of the Crazy Canucks), Mr. Furley, plus everyone on the chat channel from around the world.

We’ll be back in action for the weekend – possibly at a fine establishment.  Ideas?  Must have a table, much beer and fast wi-fi.

1914-15

As per an informal agreement between the NHA and PCHA, the regular season champions of both leagues would meet for an opportunity to vie for the Stanley Cup. After eliminating the Montreal Canadiens in a two game total goals series, the Ottawa Senators of the NHA were primed to face the Vancouver Millionaires, champions of the PCHA. The championship would be waged in a best of five series. Vancouver came at the Senators hard, sweeping the series in three. The Millionaires scored 26 goals in the process while limiting the Senators to just eight. Fred “Cyclone” Taylor paced Vancouver with six goals. The Millionaires took the Stanley Cup home, the farthest west it had been to that date.

 

Whatcha think?
