GDT: Canucks host Sharks - 7pm - Snet

Postby Cornuck » Thu Jan 20, 2011 12:41 pm

Tonight is the night we've all been waiting for! Kyle Wellwood returns to Vancouver!

Actually, it will be more interesting to see if Eager goons it up tonight.

After a .500 road trip, it's time to get back on track with a short home stretch.

I expect some sluggishness heading into the break, and we could, justifiably, use it. Too bad some of our stars are going, but then again, the game shouldn't be taxing.

Hell these guys are good enough to win with less than the best, so who knows we might pull a couple of these out, but I wouldn't put any interest in results until after the break given the run we've been through.

Tough game to lose. The size of the Sharks came into play in the second period.. Loungo played a great game . Not a bad game but Canucks are not a great shoot out team..

Kyle Wellwood played for the Sharks ? Stupid rule if St. Louis calls him from Russia...

At least a point.

I think they mentioned it was the 15th game in 27 nights? There's got to be a few bumps, bruises, strains and fatigue setting in at this point. Good on the Canucks for picking up a point, but it certainly looks like they need some rest.

Luongo is junk in shootouts. REALLY happy we don't see those in the playoffs.

Ehrhoff was pretty tragic, also. That's just a tired player not thinking at all. Certainly not a $5+M play...

Well shit happens as far as Ehroff, that's pretty uncommon for him.

Luongo... you're right Island he's one of the worst shootout goalies in the league. Mobility isn't his thing and one on one he's pretty sad. But they don't exist in the playoffs, so who cares.
