After winning the first three games, the Canucks dropped the next three, only to capture the series with an exciting overtime victory on their home ice, inspiring Reno to come up with "Flying High," a song he hopes can carry the home team all the way to their first-ever Stanley Cup.
"It's been a roller coaster of emotions for sure," acknowledged Reno, who says several members of Loverboy are huge ice hockey fans, including drummer Matt Frenette, a Montreal Canadiens follower.
"Anything you can do to take it to another level during the playoffs," said Mike. "Hopefully, the song can follow the Canucks all the way to the championship."
Reno premiered the song on Monday after it was posted on the Vancouver Canucks website.
