With all that has happened in the last month and a half, it can be a little difficult to take it all in. Yes, the Canucks are going to the Stanley Cup Final, but what brought us to this point? How did I get here? This is not my beautiful house. This kind of moment comes once in a lifetime, but in the moment it’s hard to come to grips with what is happening. What story are the Canucks telling in these playoffs? What will we remember? What history is being made?
This is why the NHL’s History Will Be Made commercials are a brilliant bit of marketing. Not only are they incredibly easy to make, but they also paint the key moments of the playoffs as larger-than-life and history-defining. The NHL has created dozens of these brief clips that aim to encapsulate an entire game into one or two remarkable moments that they then sum up with pithy phrase. They have made one of these commercials for almost every single Canucks victory. Taken together, they tell the story of the Canucks’ playoffs in the most positive light possible.
So let us review this brief record of recent history as we prepare to cheer on the Canucks in the Stanley Cup Final. Let us remember how we got here. Let us see what history has done for us.
