F Yeah bitches! Great come from behind. I wasn't too happy with the first. although alot of that was due to the refs being morons in the first. Also i had a bad taste cause the FSBlues announcers were idiots... "Last time when the blues won 6-4 over the canucks it was Mats Sundin's first game as a Canuck" .... "Remember the game against the blues was Sundin's first ever as a Canuck".... "great stop by Legace"... moron.. although watching sportscentre at one point Jen Hedger called him Chris Simon.. which i thought was funny cause it was twice in one night by two different people Mason was called by the wrong name...
Anyways nice win tonight.. right now 2pts is 2pts and its all that matters.
We definetly need Lu to get back to form. Raymond still doesn't look like an NHL'er.. does he have to clear waivers now?

Mats is really starting to look like he is in game shape.. not just the points but he is able to hold onto the puck and fend off opponents now. He is starting to look good. Kes is still looking game in and out our best players. Pyatt looks to have found his game again, love the way he is playing with the twins... pretty sure teams are going to be playing their top d agains the Sundin Kes Demitra line pretty quick.. which hopefully will mean the twins will get a few more chances. Anyways its another win. Three in a row.

Nice! 6-4 win!

Quite frankly, I'm pleased with this win because they didn't really deserve it but yet found a way to win. That's a sign of getting out of their slump. Even though Sundin was first star, I still think the two best plays of the game came with Kesler saving that icing when Daniel missed the open net with 45 seconds or so left and Kesler poking the puck out of the zone later on resulting into the Canucks getting the puck in the Blows' zone. Also big ups to Sundin for poking the puck loose from Woywitka to able Demitra to get the empty netter.

Excellent road win - I'll take it anyway I can.

Looks like Luongo is the only thing holding us back.... did I just write that? :shock:

Lu just doesn't look back to being a hundred percent yet. He is still fighting the shots and the puck a fair bit. Hopefully he can settle down and be that calm dominate presence really soon. This team could be flying soon i hope.

I can't say enough good things about Kesler and Sundin right now. They both scored great goals, they both had brilliant games at both ends of the ice, they both had at least two incredible stick lifts, and they seem to have a lot of chemistry. Demitra is the quiet set up man and had some great plays himself; the fake slapshot pass over to Kess was a thing of beauty.

A three game winning streak. Well colour me surprised. Now if only Luongo could get on track we'd be world beaters. :shock:

Plan the parade route!!! BAHHAHAHA WIII WOOOOOO!!!

Seriously, good win. This reminds me a lot of some of our earlier games in the season. Luongo not being our best player, yet the Canucks win the game. Despite their ranking I think the Blues are currently better than their position, but these are the games you need to win against desperate teams to give yourself a shot and the Canucks pulled it out. Gutsy win.

More impressed than ever with the Kesler's play. Sundin's goals were meh, I think he can be better but at least they're going in for someone! Kesler is playing like hell. 10 points in 4 games, just awesome.

Lou will be Lou before too long. At least the pressure (other than his own) if off him and he can just work on his game.

This team is currently about Kesler, Kesler and Kesler. And Kesler helps out a bit too. It is lucky Nonis matched, because at the time I thought it was borderline, and the biggest reason to match was to ensure you're not targeted in the future. However, the clear reason to match was, um, pure hockey reasons.

Also like Bieksa in the fighting mood. Maybe he shouldn't fight, but when he does he is more effective. If Iginla is allowed to fight, I say give Bieksa free reign. Pound for pound he is up there.

I have always liked Sundin, and that didn't change during the big losing streak. It is obvious that for him, it is all about the team, which is the complete polar opposite to Messier. The comparisons to Messier were always insane, and will be insane even if Sundin doesn't get another point. (When I say Messier, I mean Messier in a Canucks uniform. At some point Messier went from a force to a farce, and the farce was nothing more than his own hype machine).

And the last thing on Sundin, I am thinking Ian McIntyre should be eating crow, but somehow he will turn this into something he predicted.

Hell yeah, 3 wins in a row again and no words about a coaching change or Messier. :mrgreen:

I guess that's what makes us real Canucks fans... :lol:

6 goals without the Sedins getting one..New Record?? Kesler is da Man !! Luo looking like he watched too many Cloutier videos ... and we still win :) :)... Agree on Raymond, his early promise has faded bigtime and he should be replaced. Other than that tonights team looked solid offensively and poor on PK and goaltending.. Quite a different Canuck team. Hopefully AV can pull another rabbit outta the hat and put our PK back together.. or will MG bring in more help??

I'd like to add to this. Ever notice when Sundin is on the ice and the Canucks that in the huddle celebration that he always has something to say, laughing or has the biggest smile on his face. It looks like he genuinely enjoys being a part of that.
