GDT: Feb 26/18 Canucks @ Avs. 6:00 pm SN

Post by Hockey Widow » Mon Feb 26, 2018 6:29 pm

The Vanekless Canucks play in Denver tonight. None of the newbies will be in the lineup.

Don’t know who starts. Don’t care.

Don’t know whose on D. Don’t care.

Don’t know the forward lines. Don’t care.

I only care about Boeser getting points.
The only HW the Canucks need

Bo can get some too... that's about the extent of my interest tonight - PLUS the game is blacked out because I live within a 7 hour drive of fucking Denver....

With Vanek's departure, Virtanen finally gets some powerplay ice time. Hopefully, he can capitalize and become a fixture on the second unit.

Virtanen is getting very good at going wide on D. He has been able to get past the D and drive to the net successfully in the past few games.

Now if he finishes on those drives, oh boy. That will be a beauty

Finally
LEarning how,to use his speed, and drop a shoulder and drive the net.

He keeps that up, points will follow.

Bo is just terrible on the PK. All these years and he still has no idea.

Why do you keep switching? He leaves his post to go to the space that Dowd is already in, leaving Rantanen wide open.
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

How many times did the zebras let the Avalanches go with their interference, hooking, too many men? On the other hand, they have called everything on the Canucks.

Too many liberties being taken on Boeser in the past few weeks.

The league isn't doing jack.

This summer better see the addition of some brawn.

No shit, Gudbranson made a big hit but Archibald should also do something. That is his job.

Virtanen hit the post and McKinnon scored right after. Markstrom made some great saves tonight but should have that one. Oh well.

Goldobin is pretty useless when he cannot create any offense. He does not have the top end speed like Virtanen. He cannot check nor defend without the puck. :|
