The reaction in Vancouver
Here's a sample of what writers for Vancouver newspapers had to say following the decisive win by the Blackhawks in Game 5:
Cam Cole, Vancouver Sun:
In two games since (Brent) Seabrook was scratched from the lineup, the Blackhawks have outscored the Canucks 12-2 and driven Roberto Luongo from the Vancouver net, not once but twice.
Some — probably the same ones who will go to their graves swearing the (Raffi) Torres hit was clean and couldn't possibly inspire the Blackhawks to want to shove it to the Canucks where the sun doesn't shine — may call this purely coincidental.
The Blackhawks do not.
Tony Gallagher, Vancouver Province:
What's going on here may have something to do with the apprehension, the paranoia in the city. It's like it's seeping right into the dressing room and wrapping its tentacles around the team's throats and choking off the oxygen to their brains.
Whether the Canucks can be deprogrammed before they enter the history books as another team losing a three game advantage is not known yet, but it's clear the Hawk players know something strange is at play.
