Enough is enough
Saturday night’s third period could go down as one of the most memorable and historic final frames this season, but not for what transpired on the ice during those 20 minutes.
After yet another brutal shift from Poolman, which ultimately led to Pittsburgh’s fourth goal of the game, it was evident that the fans had had enough.
With still minutes left in the game, handfuls of disappointed fans started to create a mass exodus out of their seats and towards the doors. The fans that did decide to stick around made sure that the front office could hear their displeasure with booming boos and a distinct, unified “Fire Benning” chant that grew louder and louder as the clock winded down.
The eight-year frustration reached its breaking point with just 1.6 seconds to go, simply summarized by a blue and green jersey littering the ice.
Your move, Jim Benning.
The Canucks will be back in action on Monday night, taking on Alex Edler and the Los Angeles Kings. Puck drop is set for 7:00pm PST.
