The Canes come into town continuing their extended road trip that started in Europe. Here's the scoop from a friend who's a Caniac.
A lock for you guys if we play the way we did last night in Ottawa. Weaknesses: Winning faceoffs - got away with that in Finland against the Wild, won't be so lucky the rest of the way, I'm sure. Work in our own end was putrid. Strengths: Ward is good - made some fantastic saves but needs help in front of him. The Sedins will feast on this unless we adjust. Could come down to Luongo vs. Ward. Given team talent plus passion of the home town fans: Advantage Canucks.
I think the Canucks will continue to play the same style until they get it right, although the need for a full 60 minute effort must have stressed in the locker room. Also, Raymond gets his shot with the Sedins.
