Jimmy Howard isn't an unknown -- he's been one of the top goalie prospects around for a couple of years now. Losing to him would be no embarrassment, though the blue line the Wings are rolling looks eerily familiar to Canuck fans.
For all Vancouver outshout them in the first period, I didn't find that they looked particularly in control. Detroit's puck movement was, unsurprisingly, better than the Canucks'.
And you just knew that when they incorrectly put that faceoff in Vancouver's zone that the puck wouldn't leave until it was in the back of the net.
It's too bad וויניפג ג'טס's prediction can no longer come true, as for all I think the shutout is an utterly meaningless stat (it is, all arguments to the contrary are truly lame), it's been a while since he had one, and it seems weird that Pascal Leclaire got yet another tonight.
Jyrki I never saw you ask the question. Which thread was it in? Anyways, no it was not me. You have me curious as to who it was because I honestly don't know any other Canucks fans in town.
