What the heck people! With my luck at GDTs, I don't want to make a prediction!

Hutton a healthy scratch.

Gagner out due to injury. Dowd in.

Yep, Brock falling behind Barzal in the points department, but I'd rather have a pure goal scorer anyways, especially if he can play a 200' game.

Tampa is clearly capable of playing at this pace, not sure the Canucks are...

Baerstchi owes Markstrom on the second goal, taking too long and stickhandling too much.

Well, they've clearly been incapable of playing with the elite at that pace for quite a few years. They simply don't have the depth or the guns to do so. All we can hope is the young guys keep battling and competing.

It also looks like one of those games where the goalie isn't going to be good enough to keep them close enough to steal one.
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

Not really, as long as they play defense, two goals deficit is not completely out of reach for the Canucks.

i think the canucks are out of ideas on even plays.

It's cool to have all that zone possession and that, but it serves nothing if all you do is trying to cycle along the boards

Baerstchi is having a tough game, coughing up the puck twice in the defensive zone.

LMAO!!!

The phantom offense. Skating around the outside to no effect since 2012. This is where the Sedins are a boat anchor. The system is designed for them and our organization still caters to them.

I guess the Lightning can get away from getting a retaliation penalty by being the top team in the league. :mad:

Pouliot is having another bad game. Hutton should replace him in the next game.

A real snooze fest


3-0


Screw this.

We love shooting from the blue line but we don't have anyone that can get the shots through, on net.

And Tampa just boxes so well.

This team doesn't deserve Boeser
