Better than the season avg of 11.6%...moving in the right direction!

I do appreciate the way the reins have been loosened and the team will stand up for itself. Mitchell, repeatedly, and Nolan were held accountable whether the ref's issued penalties (Mitchell) or not (Nolan).
Booth played and played well. He went to the net. I don't know if this is a chance to get back in the line up or a showcase stint, but his effort was there.
Dale Weiss deserves kudos for his 3rd/4th line play.
The team is over handling the puck. The releases are not quick enough, whether it is passes or shots, they have to get the puck moving quicker because opponents are tipping pucks and sticks too often.
The game is 60 minutes not 55 minutes.
Jason Garrison is for whatever reason, playing far too tentative.

I'm calling bullshit on this, Luongo did have one of those, he actually had more than one of those...he made some big saves when the score was 1-0, and a few more when it was 1-1.
All three goals were after defensive zone breakdowns where a King's player was basically left all alone in front of the net. I can't remember the last time a Canuck player had a breakaway or even a second in front of the opposition's goalie with a pass right on the stick and no other player in striking distance. I can't remember if it was 1-0 or 1-1 at the time, maybe it was even 2-1, Luo made that monster save with his blocker when (guess what) another King's player was allowed to skate in on his own, there's your save, now it's time to put the game away which the team wasn't able to do.
