nhl meme | 1/8 moments → Roger Neilsen waves the white flag and starts ‘Tower Power’.
In 1982, the Vancouver Canucks were in the Campbell Conference Finals. They were captained by Stan Smyl and led in scoring by Thomas Gradin and managed to finish second in the weak Smythe division despite a losing record. The Canucks defeated Calgary in a series sweep, followed by defeating Los Angeles 4-1. They moved onto the Conference Finals to play the Chicago Blackhawks (led by Denis Savard). They won the first game 2-1 in double OT. However, in game two, Chicago was ahead 3-1 when Vancouver had a goal disallowed. There was a non-call by Chicago and then Vancouver was called for their 4th straight penalty. Savard scored to make it 4-1. Ron Smith (assistant coach) yelled out ‘We give up, we surrender, we give up!” Roger Neilsen took a stick and attached a white towel to the end, in a supposed mock surrender. A couple players did the same thing. All were suspended from the game. When the Canucks arrived back in Vancouver, they were greeted with fans waving white flags at the airport. They then went on to win three straight to head to the finals. Although they were swept by the New York Islanders, the Towel Power lives on. Every playoff game, the Canucks produce 20,500 towels for the fans. Roger Neilsen is now a permanent fixture outside of Rogers Arena.
