Canucks 4 Flames 1

We're down to the last couple of regular season games for our Canucks and tonight was a huge game for all us die-hard fans to see if the boys could come through in a crunch situation.  Can there be a more hated rival for the local lads to play for a preferred playoff position?  Not likely.

And they came through!!  Big time!!  The Division isn't won yet though.  The Canucks and Flames are now tied for points with two games left, but you gotta have faith!!

We did forego perhaps the more traditional hockey beverage - beer - during the game tonight for our #11 bottle, but it seemed to work.  Maybe it can be a new habit for all the superstitious types out there.  It was, after all, a BC wine.  How could an Alberta team top that?!

#11  2007 Lake Breeze - Pinot Gris (Okanagan)

In fact, there was a bit of effervescence to the wine - not exactly expected for a still, white wine - but that's been a bit of a trademark of this vintage.  Maybe that's what gave the Canucks that extra buzz tonight.

Bring on the playoffs!!
