GDT: 2/11/14 Canucks vs Preds 6:30 pm (SN Pacific)

Post by Hockey Widow » Sun Nov 02, 2014 12:49 pm

Bo Horvat to make his NHL debut tonight against the Nashville Predators. He was recalled last night and it was announced today. It appears that the Sestito experiment could be over. :mrgreen:

Another back to back. Lack expected to get the start although Miller has not been ruled out. Line ups not announced yet.
The only HW the Canucks need

Call me confused. Horvat not playing tonight!?!?

No announcement yet. But why sit him yesterday and fly him to Vancouver when the original plan was to recall him tonight? Unless they figured it would be easier to get him to Vancouver yesterday to get some work in with the skills coaches before heading out on the road. That makes sense too.

Word is only he, Burrows and Stanton were on the ice this morning indicating that neither he nor Stanton would be in the line up tonight.

Willie wasn't kidding when he said he doesn't talk about line up decisions until he has to.

Chances are the team didn't practice today due to having played last night, so I don't think that is a fair indication when it comes to Horvat. He's been playing regular shifts in Utica, Stanton has not been playing due to injury, and Bur is suspended. This was the first time, in 2 weeks, that Horvat has been seen on the ice in person by our coaching staff, it could just have been an assessment of sorts.

Who knows though.

Why should they scratch a PPG-Player? :mrgreen:

Go Canucks go, who had thought they're hunting ducks after 11 games?

So far a very disciplined team in all aspects, helping each other out with a fair share of icetime. Good Coach.

Nashville has a very similar strategy or game plan, but relying more on Weber and Josi. Our D is more balanced.

No game is easy in this league, but this one will be very un-easy. Another win and it's becoming scary. :devil:

Our D is more balanced because it has to be.....we don't have a Shea Weber. :(

Matthias needs a goal. He has been playing well but could not buy a goal.

Me thinks the linesman saved Sbisa's life by stepping in there.

Hope Bieksa is OK.

Looks like he got an elbow or butt end in the eye area.
