The "patches" held !! good game by all 4 lines.. Torres broke out big time.. hit, fight and 2 goals :) The 5 on 3 by Dallas held off the board by our "patches"... Another nice game by Tanev. Erhoff looking better though he did take a bad penalty. Amazing winning 4 out of 4 against Dallas..

Tanev 19:57 of ice time (4 seconds less than Salo)
Sauve: 14:47 and 3 shots, +1
Oberg: 10:34 +1

None were minus for the night.

These kids are doing their job!

Daniel sits atop the league scoring - good times!

It sure would be nice for the system to generate a couple solid d-men in the off-season because we're going to need 'em. Looking good SO FAR.

Nice to see some life from Torres, who has largely (not talking about goals) been a bit listless. Hope the spark doesn't fizzle in a few games like it did last time.

With a little luck, this could be the year Twins go 1-2 in scoring. That would be something to remember.

I liked their break-out passes all night too. Great job of keeping it simple, but getting out of our zone. Sauve did a great job chipping it out for the 3 on 1 goal, and Oberg had both a lot of poise carrying the puck though our crease, and then a great job carrying the puck deep onto Dallas's zone. Totally impressed. Loved Kesler's comment of playing the same game, and trusting the kids to make the plays. Tons of confidence in these kids among the rest of the team.
The Cup is soooooo ours!!!!!!!

Wow, Crawford can't buy a win from his old team.

Unbelievable!

Canucks win a must-win to keep atop the league and the conference.

Hopefully they aren't peaking too soon, but with the slew of injuries to the blue line, I have a feeling the Canucks are just getting started.

No peaking involved. This is a REALLY, REALLY good team.

I'm thinking they are as well, toucan, but there are a lot of doubters (on other boards) saying that the same thing happened with Calgary a few years ago when the Canucks turned it on and ate up a 14 pt deficit to win the division from the Flames. Personally, I don't believe they are comparable. The Canucks are showing they can win with any situation. Of course they're going to lose the odd game here and there but even with a .500 record from here on out, they can win their division and finish 3rd in the west. That says an awful lot about their team work. Which is a lot stronger than it has been in years.
