what we mean by hockey is canada’s game is not “only canadians are good at hockey”. we mean that canada is part of our history, part of our culture. unlike nowhere else. you can’t walk down the street without seeing someone with hockey merch. everyone knows about hockey everyone talks about hockey. from vancouver to halifax, we all have this love for a sport in common. we literally changed our laws for canadians to celebrate the goal medal game with alcohol. today, the entire country was watching. that’s what we mean by “hockey is canada’s game”. hockey is a a part of us.
Players who weren’t competing at the Olympics had some time off to spend with friends and family. Canucks forward David Booth experienced a life-altering moment, when he proposed to his girlfriend, Ashley, while the two built a snowman.
"This snowman’s so lonely," Booth tells Ashley. "Who’s he gonna spend the rest of his life with? Should we build him another one? And then I got down on one knee and I was like, ‘I want to spend the rest of my life with you.’"”
well i’ve always wanted a season where the canucks don’t lose in the playoffs
