The view from Vancouver

The view from Vancouver could be brought to you courtesy of the handful of Canucks fans who were allowed to sit in the press box, behind/above the local beat writers, and cheer during the game. Interesting concept, and certainly a new one for me. Regardless, the Canucks now have three days off at home between games, and they’re likely to hear it from the local media. The natives were already restless before the game, and now the Canucks are 2-2-1 in their last five games, including one overtime win and one shootout win. In Vancouver, the land of rightfully high expectations, that qualifies as panic-inducing. The Canucks are still quite snug atop the Northwest Division, though. Here’s a sampling of how the Vancouver Province and the Vancouver Sun covered last night’s game…
