Okay, perhaps my first foray at creating a cross-over(seas) audience of the NHL for WhatCulture’s readership didn’t go over so well, but, like Loki smack-talking the Hulk, I don’t know when to quit so let’s give this another go by drawing another cinema blockbuster/hockey analogy.
In 2012, Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy was drawing to a close with The Dark Knight Rises and to say that fans of the previous 2 movies were eagerly awaiting this crowning achievement is an understatement. In the world of the NHL, the Vancouver Canucks had just completed their own back to back conquest of the league, winning their second straight President’s Trophy for finishing first in the League, which is kind of like the Screen Actor’s Guild Award for Best Picture compared to the Oscar for Best Picture.
