Make Shark Club your home for the playoffs! With Happy Hour twice daily, and all-night Happy Hour on Fridays, there’s no better place to live the playoff experience.

And then there was one.

The Vancouver Canucks are the last Canadian team standing in the Stanley Cup playoffs, after the Montreal Canadiens were ousted by the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night. The only other team from north of the border participating in the first round was the Calgary Flames, who blew a 3-0 lead on Thursday and were eliminated by the Dallas Stars.

The Toronto Maple Leafs, Edmonton Oilers, and Winnipeg Jets were all eliminated during the qualifying round. The Ottawa Senators were one of the worst teams in the league this year, and consequently weren’t among the teams that returned to play this summer.

The Canucks are leading their series against the Blues 3-2 and can advance to the Western Conference semi-final with another win.

Many will ask if the Canucks are now “Canada’s team.”

Canucks fans won’t care. All that matters is their team’s still playing.
