Bruce There It Is’ is Back, but Vancouver Canucks Fall Short

Published

on

For the fourth game in a row, the Vancouver Canucks dominated a third period.

Come from behind 3rd-periods are hard to come by in the NHL, but the Vancouver Canucks have turned it into standard operating procedure. In two of their last four games they’ve rallied from behind to win, in another they started the 3rd period tied and won, and Friday night they came from down two goals to earn a point.

They wanted more.

“We’re excited to play, we expect to win,” Canucks defenceman Quinn Hughes said postgame. He also expressed his admiration for the energy and volume of the Rogers Arena crowd.

Among the highlights from the chorus with the team rallying late, the Rogers Arena crowd worked itself into a lather and had the “Bruce There It Is” chant going at full volume.

Canucks Head Coach Bruce Boudreau has expressed his indifference to the frivolity as he doesn’t want to be the center of attention, but there’s no denying the enthusiasm and the camaraderie involved in the gathering’s a cappella performance.

Sample included. Win or lose, with five games remaining on the current Vancouver Canucks homestand, more drama and more songs from the crowd should be expected.

VHN Managing Editor Rob Simpson has been covering the NHL for three decades on live TV, radio, and as a journalist. He worked his first ever game getting postgame sound as a teenager; it was Vancouver vs. Detroit.
