For all of Oilers fans' whimpering over the Battle of Alberta, there's a team doing an even better job of screwing up their playoff hopes: the Vancouver Canucks! After stinking it up Sunday, they came up short again tonight in a 1-0 loss to the Kings. What a difference a Demitra makes (as well as tighter defence: this is their second straight 1-0 win).
The Canucks have 5 games left, while the Oilers are up a point with a game in hand. Taking a look over at HF boards, the "rolling eyes" emoticon seems to be the number one choice for Canucks fans, although the "head hitting a brick wall" emoticon pops up a few times:
"Thanks a lot, Bert! For ****'s sake..."
"Good to see the "Character" come through (emoticon of eyes rolling)"
"That sucking sound you hear is our season going down the drain."
"I wait all ****ing year for the playoffs and we won't even make them. ****ing hell."
"we still have the WHL (two emoticons of smiley faces with clappy hands)"
"Wonderful effort guys. (emoticon of hands clapping)"
