Everybody loses, except for the team that should

So the Canucks came back from a 2-0 deficit to win 4-2. I'm not too happy about that. Plus, the Senators lost in overtime to Jersey. Double unhappy about that, since I hate Lou. But Pittsburgh lost too, so there's no overall change in the 4th place race in the East.

While there's an epic race for the 8th and final playoff spot in the Eastern conference, a race that matters to millions of hockey fans, all the Vancouver media can talk about is the "mathematical possibility" that Vancouver will win the West (they need to win all 4 of their games, and have Detroit lose all 4). This is such a Canuck-centric city ... I really find it hard to handle. Though, without being in any other city, I can't tell if that's the norm or not.

So, in summation: Vancouver wins, nobody cares
Montreal/Toronto both win, no changes in rank there
Ottawa/Pittsburgh both lose, no changes in rank there

What a boring night in hockey
