Tonight, the local professional ice hockey team in my city, suffered its second straight defeat in a row, to the same team and the worst team in the entire league. Though the Vancouver Canucks have already been given the accolade of being the best team in the regular season, their play in the last several games do not reflect such an honour. With the playoffs just weeks away, this isn’t a good sign for the club. Will they step it up when it counts? Or will they bring their shoddy play with them into the post-season?
