07:14 AM ET 05.03 | While not on the order of some physical Eastern Conference series, the first-round matchup between Vancouver and San Jose has some verbal bad blood. [On Thursday, Alain Vigneault] still stuck with his earlier notion that the Sharks cheat in the faceoff circle. "Some of that is sometimes jumping and maybe making more scrums and winning those one-on-ones instead of trying to beat some of those guys clean, the way they cheat and they are allowed to cheat," Vigneault told reporters following the team's practice at Rogers Arena. The Canucks coach said the same thing in his postgame interview on Wednesday after Vancouver won only 43 percent of their faceoffs in Game 1.

I have just flat out disliked this team since their failed SC run a couple of years ago.

So do the Sedin sisters get their whining from him, or does he get it from them?

May 3, 2013  09:29 AM ET

I'm at a loss... I dislike both of these teams.
