GDT: 02/14/08 - Canucks Host the Wild - 7pm - Sportsnet

Postby Cornuck » Thu Feb 14, 2008 10:58 am

Interdivision Matchup against the top team.

Home game.

A much needed game to restore confidence, and hopefully a win to build on.

Could these next few games decide if we're buyers or sellers at the deadline?

TSN Preview

The Wild and Canucks have split four previous meetings this season, with each team winning once in the two matchups held at GM Place. Minnesota has taken the two most recent tests, including a 4-2 triumph in Vancouver on January 21.

Big game tonight. Every game with our division rivals from now on out is almost a "must win".

Unfortunately I think the time off between games will make our boys rusty. Luongo doesn't do well on too must rest and the rest of the team tends to get off to slow starts.

Win lose or draw I'll be watching and cheering!

Nux can still control their destiny. However, with the Division being so tight, this is a must win for the Wild as well. As will most if not all the division games for the NW division teams.

This game could set up the return match in Minny on the 19th

Looking for a win tonight. Hopefully the Chicago game was the start of something good. I'm saying a 3-2 Canucks win. Burrows, Kesler and Mitchell. Gaborik with 2, only because the guy I'm playing in my money pool this week has him.
GO CANUCKS GO !!!

LIVE FROM THE PRESS BOX:

We now know how valuable Roberto Luongo is after the first goal allowed.
A total of three -- count 'em, three -- Canucks were still unable to stop the puck in a pinch after Luongo committed himself a few moments too early on Stephane Veilleux's goal.

Is it Luongo's fault that his defence completely abandoned him on that play?

I think I hate the Wild more than any other team in the league now.

Seriously, fuck them.

Its not Louie's fault but the backcheck was awful. I'm guessing when you mean defense you mean the 5 guys on the ice not just the d-men.......

Good one! I hate them too! For a long time now.....I don't know why the fans that go to the games are not more jacked up to face these asswipes.....
In Minny, we are the most hated rival. I'm starting to hate these morons more than I hate Calgary....Ok maybe not that much ....but I got enough hate to go around...... :D :D :D

I hate games like this. I freaking love watching Canucks/Wild games, however I have to get up at 4:45 tomorrow morning to catch a 7am flight. I'm not sure if I should keep watching or go to bed. I almost would've preferred it if we'd got out of that period down 3-0.

Almost.
