Honestly, this isn't that big a feat. Chicago has done it the past three years (don't forget Vancouver was an overtime goal away from being eliminated in the first round this year). That's why I never bought into the hype of Vancouver being the Cup favourites. The Bruins didn't 'grind away' at the Canucks, they simply played their game and the inevitable happened - Luongo shit his pants, the 'deep' Vancouver defense disappeared and all their players got frustrated and off their game. The Canucks of today are basically the Senators of a few years ago - play big in the regular season and get smaller and smaller with every successive playoff round.
