So by now you have probably heard it, but I had to make the joke anyway. In lieu of the Green Men not being in attendance at last night’s Vancouver Canucks Game 2 victory over the San Jose Sharks, the San Jose penalty box had a view of a different type, as did millions of CBC viewers across Canada. After receiving one of his 4 minor penalties in the second half of the game, the CBC camera was on Ben Eager in the box, when a young woman proceeded to raise her Canuck’s jersey and expose her breasts and press them against the penalty box glass. I know if you haven’t seen it already you will be googling it now, so in the interest of you keeping this window open to read further, you can see it HERE (NSFW).
There was also a game last night, one in which the San Jose Sharks lost their cool and it cost them. After Patrick Marleau and Kevin Bieksa fought, a tilt that Bieksa won decidedly, the Sharks unraveled and spent the third period essentially trying to get revenge and making trips to the penalty box. Ben Eager was the biggest culprit, as mentioned taking 5 minors in the game, 4 in the last 21 minutes. Vancouver scored 4 power play goals en route to the 7-3 victory, heading to San Jose up 2-0 in their quest to make the finals. The other twins, the Sedins combined for 5 points on the night to lead the way. Daniel scored a pair, while Raffi Torres, Bieksa, Aaron Rome, Chris Higgins and Mason Raymond had the others. Logan Couture, Marleau and Ben Eager replied for the Sharks.
The animosity has developed quick in this series, as Eager caused a stir by standing over Roberto Luongo after his goal made the score 7-3. If this hatred carries over to San Jose, and there is no reason it shouldn’t, there could be a lot of fireworks in the latter part of the series, especially if one team gets down by a lot in a game.
Tonight, Boston and Tampa Bay square off in a pivotal game 3, with the series deadlocked at a game apiece. Boston rode a strong 2nd period to a 6-5 win in game 2. Dwayne Roloson will be back in the net after getting the third period off on Tuesday, and he is 6-0 in games after being pulled this season.
