So, did you know Orcas eat bears?

Today, for the first time in many years, I fervently wish I was back in Vancouver.

Go Bruins!

Last night's game was a heartbreaker -- Vancouver's a great team and it'll be an uphill battle for the B's. But I love the enthusiasm Canada has for its sport. And the national anthem is really, really great.

City's on fire at the moment (apart from the fact it's pissing with rain today)

Go Canucks!

High points: Luongo crossing himself three times on camera before the puck drop (that got a cheer from my kids); a rousing rendition of 'O, Canada'; 30 something saves by Luongo and the fact that the Bruins looked like they wouldn't score of they'd had a 20 minute penalty; Hansen's speed; Torres scoring with 20 seconds to go.

Still, they were evenly matched it looks like it could be a great series.

Go Canucks!

A bit too literally:

"Boston forward Patrice Bergeron wasn't surprised how quickly the Stanley Cup finals turned nasty, but he was shocked to feel Canucks counterpart Alex Burrows chomp down on the tip of his finger.

Burrows denied it, but could still face discipline from the NHL after replays appeared to show him bite Bergeron's finger during a melee at the end of the first period of Vancouver's 1-0 victory in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals on Wednesday night.

"I don't mind rough play and scrums at the end, as long as it's just pushing and shoving and all that," Bergeron said. "But biting? I mean come on.""

Bergeron - give me a break. Oooooh! Look he bit my finger, ref. Well get your hand out his mouth, Patrice.

2-0 up.

Alex Burrows scores after 10 seconds of OT!
