Good awareness by the officials to save Virtanen right there.

Can't watch the game. Was he going to get his head handed to him or something?

Virtanen up against a couple sabres who went after him sorta ha, he was about to scrap it out, but the ref's were like nah youngster, not vs that big dman guy forget who it was.

Canucks dominated the 1st period, rare for a morning game, Baertschi playing well.

Hope they keep it up!

It was Jamie McGinn. Virtanen bump him on a legal hit and McGinn took exception and went after him. Virtanen was in obliging but the linesmen stepped in very quickly. Just think McGinn was looking to set the rookie straight. Not really who I'd like to see him take on for his first NHL fight.

Virtanen just made Franson look old and slow. Blew right by him. Good save though. This kid is going to score some crazy goals for us down the road. Last time we had a player who drove the net with power was Bert.

We've out played Buffalo big time but just can't finish. Then they get two.

If Virtanen scores on his chance McGinn doesn't get his chance to score. If Hansen or Sutter convert on that short handed chance Buffalo doesn't get their PP goal.

Should've tried to sell high on Vrbata because he's quickly becoming worthless.

Well that's a switch, Dank to Hank! Another point for Hutton, 6 assists so far.

IMHO we can stop looking for our PP quarter back. His name is Ben!

Absolutely agree. You're starting to see his vaunted hands start to slip a little.

And like Baertschi, he's never had the willingness to fully engage to get or maintain puck possession. Not great if you don't have high-end speed in a transition world.

Nice giveaway too. Exactly like the one from Weber Swiss Naturals that caused McGinn's goal.

Would absolutely love to see Vrbata and Higgins moved for some picks by TDD if not sooner.
Try to focus on THIS year... again
