More than 1.6 million tuned in to the Scotiabank Hockey Tonight pre-game show, while CBC was the overwhelming choice for fans after the game, with 3.7 million viewers sticking with CBC for the post-game show.

    Why is it so important to Canadians that Vancouver win……? Anybody that knows anything about hockey can see they suck. Beating Colorado and Edmonton 15 times during the year doesn’t mean much now….Chicago was better and Detroit would have crushed them.
