They finally played hard start to finish. Bad luck at the end. But they nearly won a game in the toughest barn in the league with 14 shots on net. Why? Because they competed for a change! They made the game difficult for San Jose. The Canucks didn't necessarily play well, but they grinded to the end and got at least partially-rewarded for it. Did anyone think they could go from playing lousy to playing great all in one game? Not me. But what they can (and did) do was battle. That's where the turnaround starts. Good effort!

Why the fuck didn't he take the man on Thornton behind the net just before the tying goal? What an idiot! Then Johnson lets the pass trickle past his stick AND surprise Mitchell is sitting on Roberto!
What an absolute cluster fuck this team is! Didn't respond physically at all! How bloody embarassing!
