Your Canucks/Sharks Game Four Open Thread

If San Jose fans actually believe that men in tights can be as effectively distracting to a penalty-boxed opponent as bared boobs, they don't deserve to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.

As a side note, when did the NHL install Tits and/or Tights Taunting Zones right on the side of sin bins? Has this always happened out west? If so, what would the 2001 Sharks have to say about it? And, how happy is the world that there didn't seem to be one in Detroit?

Anyway, the Canucks are up 2-1. If they win today in San Jose, it's probably safe to erasable-pen them into the Finals. Or not. Hockey's weird like that.
