One of the weirdest goals ever. Id have laughed it wasn't on us. I thought we were done. Hoping for a single point through the second. One more period. I think this is gonna be a hard fought period. Blues energized. Cammeleri traded mid-game; off to the flames lol. He just built a house in Montreal. Ooops shouldnt have beaked off. Predicting Canuck win.

Alberts on pace for about 12 minutes tonight. Sulzer looking completely lost at times in the defensive zone. Makes very little sense to have sat Ballard IMO.


Cammallerri has apparently been traded to Calgary according to the twitterverse.
Can't get onto Calpuck.

and hfboards is fucked

Lou made up for that grotesque fluke by bailing the boys out TWICE on shorthanded breakaways. Bieksa has been awful. All the d-men seem to be fighting the puck (along with Lu), Kesler hasn't done much and is far too casual... the team is tired and I'll be happy getting any points out of this one. Not a good game.

The Blues play hard and have the size and tenacity to play the Canucks well. They muck it up as well as anyone, keep it real simple and are out-playing the Canucks by a fair margin by effort alone.

Apparently it's Rene Bourque + heading the other way. Interesting...

for Bourque maybe something more.

So did he get traded for calling out the feeling in the locker room or because he did so in English?

Much better 3rd period.

I see this game going to a SO.

Just the usual Bieksa flu. The one that either makes him a Beast or a disaster. There is no in between. He's playing incredibly soft tonight.

Perhaps not a penalty on Backes but from the officials perspective you can see why the call was made. Canucks can get the 2 points that they don't really deserve.

I'm guessing shortie for the Blues the way the blueline has been tonight.

What a stupid time for Oshie to try to get his stick. Left a HUGE lane open at the time.

Oshie goes to get his stick and then its a 4-2.

Daniel gets the winner. Wow. Nice win.

Now take those 2 pts and get the fuck outta dodge.

Where was Potatoe's buddy Keith Ballard tonight? Is AV making 'bad' line-up decisions again?

Yep. Take it and move on. 6 out of 8 points on the trip. 4 not really deserved.

Oshie leaving left the passing lane open. Stupid time to get a stick.
