Vancouver Fans Bust Out Canucks Sweater-Wearing Vince Vaughn Cardboard Cutout

The Vancouver Canucks and their rabid fans appear to have gotten the last laugh relating to the now famous photo of Vince Vaughn taunting goaltender Roberto Luongo after the netminder was pulled from goal earlier in the series, thanks to their thrilling 2-1 overtime victory over the Chicago Blackhawks Tuesday night in Rogers Arena. Fortunately (for the Canucks), the team managed to pull their hands away from their throats long enough to narrowly avert an epic choke job of losing four in a row and blowing a 3-0 series lead. Now, all the Canucks have to do is put this near-first round disaster behind them and hope that some other celebrity backing the team they play in the conference semifinals is captured taunting Luongo after he resumes his subpar NHL playoff play. Or just play better, don’t choke and put a team away when they have the opportunity. One of the two.
