Ryan Kesler was overcome by sad emotions after the Canucks lost the Stanley Cup Finals Wednesday night. Much like another key player on a team that recently lost in the finals, Kesler broke down and cried. Here’s a video of Ryan Kesler crying after the Canucks lost Game 7:
Kesler’s likely crying because he’s disappointed. His team blew a 2-0 series lead and a 3-2 series lead and lost the Stanley Cup. Kesler in particular was a no-show. He had four points and was a +4 against Chicago, had 11 points and was a +2 against Nashville, had three points against San Jose, and then he was shutout for six games against Boston. Worse yet, Kesler was a -6 for the series. Roberto Luongo and the Sedins are taking a lot of blame for Vancouver losing, but Kesler should be mentioned in the same sentence. He was one of their top scorers during the regular season and in the early part of the playoffs, but he was a non-factor in the Finals and is a big reason the team lost to Boston.
