And Raffi makes it 1-0 Canucks!

OMG! If the entire 2011 Stanley Cup Finals between my beloved Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins are going to be as exciting as Game 1 was this evening, then the sport-loving world is going to be in for a real treat over the coming couple of weeks!

To the frenzied delight of the sold out Rogers’ Arena, Raffi made the most of it, putting the puck past Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, and into the back of the net.

It went a little something like this:

And Raffi makes it 1-0 Canucks!
