[initial partial post]
Would the Canucks toss away the first game of a doubleheader again? Well, yes. Except this time they didn't crap the bed in the first game. Calgary showed the grit they showed the last time these two teams hooked up in the playoffs. The Canucks blew their big chance in the third period when they had two minutes' worth of a two-man advantage and two more minutes of 5-on-4 and couldn't score.
