Last night was a great night for Vancouver Canucks fans. Our hometown hockey team had already clinched the Northwest Division, as well as the Western Conference, but it was with last night’s win over the Los Angeles Kings that the Canucks clinched the Presidents’ Trophy. That’s the award given by the NHL to the team with the most regular season points.
But that’s “just” the regular season. As Ryan Kesler tells us, the team is “not satisfied” and they have to “keep going.” It was with that mentality that they won the Presidents’ Trophy and it is with that mentality that they’re going to approach the playoffs.
And that’s where we can all kick off the party. Even though playoff tickets don’t go on sale until tomorrow, I’ve managed to secure a pair of tickets to Game 1. We know the Canucks have home ice advantage throughout the playoffs, so we already know the first game of the first round will be played right here in Vancouver.
Being the generous guy that I am, I’m going to give away these Canucks playoff tickets to one lucky Beyond the Rhetoric reader. All you have to do to enter is follow me on Twitter or like me on Facebook, sharing a link to this post through either platform. Then, post a comment in this post saying that you’ve done this and you’re in! I’ll draw a winner at random this coming Monday.
Here are the highlights from last night’s game in case you missed it. Not a bad way to start the month of April, eh?
UPDATE: Happy April Fool’s Day!
In case you didn’t figure it out, this was an April Fool’s Day gag. To really win some tickets, check out the contest details in this YouTube video. Cheers. 🙂
