Vancouver’s Cup Run Ends Quickly

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, “Nobody envisioned this.” Despite which club you thought might win this series, or whether you reckoned these Vancouver Canucks were made of stern enough stuff in Year 2 of their Presidents’ Trophy reign, head coach Alain Vigneault’s words summed up well what happened to the Western Conference champions in Round 1 this spring. Lose to the...
