Deja Vu All Over Again?

With the Vancouver Canucks getting Bollanded by the tune of 7-2 in Game 4, should the Canuck fan base be worried?

Not really, even if the Canucks should lose Game 5 tonight.
Given there have been only three times in NHL history that a team has come back from 0-3 down to take a seven-game series and that those incidents occurred at least 32 years apart in each case, well, place your bets on Chicago at your own peril.

Yes, the Philadelphia Flyers did it last season over the Boston Bruins, but the odds of the Hawks even tying up this series are . . . Hey, wait, didn't the Blackhawks reel off three straight wins last season after the Canucks went up 2-1 in the series?

Oh, never mind, we're going to a Game 7 I guess. Maybe one of those UVic rabbits can lend me a foot.
