With every passing year, and every missed playoffs, the Toronto Maple Leafs become a little easier to tolerate. And, with every passing year, and every successful regular season that ends in unresolved playoff defeat, the Vancouver Canucks go the opposite way. In some way, the bitterness and hate that Canucks fans have for Toronto goes away… the same can be said for the feelings of indifference and “They have a team???” that Leafs fans have for Vancouver.
And yet, every time they meet, that newly formed friendship – or, at best, “mutual respect” – goes away for one night. The last few years, the Leafs have never been the favo(u)rite in these games (I mean, they haven’t beaten Vancouver since 2003), but they’ve all been great. Saturday’s was no different… a fantastic game, a fantastic 5-3 win for Vancouver.
