The Vancouver Canucks have already put themselves on the brink of elimination with a blowout loss to the San Jose Sharks on Sunday night. They are currently trailing 3-0 in the series, but things didn’t always look so grim.
During Game 2 on Friday night, Vancouver fans briefly had their spirits lifted when Ryan Kesler scored in the third period to tie the game. He then scored a second time to give the team a 2-1 lead. As the Vancouver Sun pointed out, one fan placed a pizza order while the team was trailing 1-0, but changed plans after Kesler’s first goal tied the game:

The Canucks went on to lose in overtime, so the fan probably wishes he just left to get the pizza so he didn’t have to get his hopes up. Since this person was obviously a huge Canucks fan, we hope the delivery driver didn’t say anything derogatory about the game when he got there. As we learned last year, that can be enough to get a guy fired.
