The Vancouver Canucks earned a 3-1 victory against the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday to stave off elimination and extend their series to…Sunday? Yes, the Vancouver-Los Angeles series includes three consecutive off-days right in the middle of it.
“I thought two days between the last two games was too much,” Kings coach Darryl Sutter complained, referring to the gap between Game 3 on April 15 and Game 4 on April 18.
So what evil power has gotten in the way of the Canucks-Kings series? Coldplay.
They have delayed the Kings chance of beating the Canucks and tasting the Paradise of winning their series by hosting a concert at the Rogers Arena on Saturday.
“It means we’ll have to answer questions from the media for a few more days,” Los Angeles’ Dustin Brown said with a shrug, “but it also gives us more time to prepare.”
