GDT: Canucks @ Avs - 5pm Snet

Postby Cornuck » Sun Jan 02, 2011 10:06 am

New year, same results? Let's hope so. This team has a lot going for it now.
2 out of the top 5 scores
Best 'last 10' record
Fewest Losses in Regulation
Best goal difference
Best point %
Best Faceoff %
Best PP %
5th Best PK %
2nd fewest goals allowed
Current 13-1-2 streak

So here we go into 2011 and we have had better 2nd halves recently, so things should be looking great. The only problem is that we're Canuck fans. We can't relax, we're waiting for something to screw up - in the end we only want one thing.

So tonight it's the Avs - our former rival and the only possible team to take the division from us. Despite how well 2010 went, they are only 6 points behind us.

Next 3 games:
Mon Jan 3 @ SAN JOSE 7:30 PM PT
Wed Jan 5 CALGARY 7:00 PM PT
Fri Jan 7 EDMONTON 7:00 PM PT

5 games in 7 days, here's hoping we can maintain our momentum, and health, through this busy stretch.

Mason Raymond is back tonight, starting on the 4th line for the time being. Volpatti is in the press box.

Avs haven't been getting great goaltending, and Liles has come back to earth.

3-2 Canucks in Overtime. Edler with the winner.

Does Raymond really need to be on the fourth line? I mean if it's fitness, okay, but it's pretty clear he's a skilled guy and needs to be on the second line. Yeah Hansen is a decent player, and it's nice to have him for depth, but he's going to end up on the fourth line.

Nice to have problems of which GOOD hockey player to put on which line ! I suspect that AV is bringing Raymond in gradually after his injury. Meantime Hansen has not hurt scoring on the second line. It must be tough for opposition teams to have 4 scoring lines to play against ! Hell we got Samuelsson on the 3rd line after last years top performance. Hansen seems to work well and give a bit more toughness on the 2nd line leaving most of the scoring to Tambi and Kesler.. Great game by Luongo and the 4th line tonight !
