With all due respect to the Gold Medal game, this may be the biggest game ever held in Vancouver for the people in Vancouver. The next 9 hours are going to be rough. There will be that constant feeling of anxiousness all day. That panicky feeling, it isn't going away. Other fans say to enjoy these moments, and sure if you like feeling like you are going to throw up multiple times a day....then I guess I'll enjoy it.
So we're throwing the stats out of the window today, because in a Game 7, anything can happen. Both teams have an opportunity of taking home the Stanley Cup today. If you would have told me 10 months ago at the beginning of the season, that it would come down to a Game 7 against the Bruins, I would have said 'bring it on!'. Now it's here, and no one told me about how nervous I'd feel.
Vancouver has played great in our arena so far this series, but the first goal will be huge for either team. And as far as those 'must win' games that we reference to all the time, this is the mother of all 'must win' games.
I don't know how you are going to get through the day. I'm going to be a mess. You can follow my freak-outs on twitter if you wish. In fact, I'm sure I'm going to be a mess through-out the game.
So for the last time this season: Go Canucks Go
