1) the blues canucks series was physical, and if it were to continue canucks players could have gotten injured
2) sundin and salo have a chance to rest their injuries and be ready for the next series.
3) if chicago and st. louis keep on beating the shit out of each other and the series goes to 7, then they are going to be very beat up for the next round of the playoffs.
The canucks looked good coming out of this series. st. louis was unable to show up because luongo and the canucks d' shut them down. keith tkachuck did not get a goal all series. while the sedins and burrows combind for 12 points.
Now the canucks wait. if san jose wins their series against anaheim, then the canucks play the red wings. but if anaheim wins, then the canucks play the winner of the flames/blackwhores.
go ducks and flames!!!!
