R4G4 - Canucks @ Ruins - 5pm - Wednesday

Postby Cornuck » Tue Jun 07, 2011 5:27 pm

I don't know about you guys, but I don't remember a thing about Game 3 (maybe it was the beer). Let's hope that the team has put it behind them as well.

I'm looking for a more composed Game 4, and more control from both sides. Sure Rome is gone, but then so is Horton - in spite of the length of the suspension, we got the better deal.

I'm expecting a huge bounce-back game from Luongo (not that we can blame him for Game 3) - but I'm sure he'll be ready to stand tall for this one.

We'll get back to our puck control game, start skating better and come home with the split*.

GO CANUCKS GO!

Yep. Let's see the Canucks get back to their game. Bring the forecheck, bring the speed and the opportunistic hits. I really hope they rally for each other in light of the nonsense that swirled around the last game i.e. officiating, dirty play, absurd suspensions, etc. Tonight is a very big game. Time to crack Thomas open for 3 or 4. As it stands, if the Canucks don't win the series, it's all Thomas. So much so that he might win the Conn Smythe even in a losing cause; and it would be deserved. But that's as of today. Let's hope it swings our way tonight.

Go Canucks Go. The time is now.

It's getting serious now. Canucks win and it's one more win for the cup. Bruins win and it's a best of three for the cup. I think the Bruins are going to come out hitting and as long as the refs call the game fairly (yeah right) we should get some power plays and pop a few on the PP. Scoring on the PP needs to happen tonight. Earn your money tonight, Luongo and we will be o.k.

Deep breath now.........

GO CANUCKS GO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not worried. I have great faith in these guys, and feel they will play a strong game. Should be enough to come away from Boston with what we needed, because we're certainly better, but Thomas can change that.

Still buying champagne for Friday night though...

Even I've got to admit... Bobby Orr was pretty cool.

Pretty poor push back period. Making the Bruins look a lot better than they are. Soft goal by Luongo. Failure to expose Thomas (great goalie but prone to being caught out of position).

Oh ya, and that little thing called the powerplay...

So, Hamhuis is really crucial apparently because Edler, Bieksa, Alberts, Ballard and Salo sure look like shit tonight. Lou shoulda had both, but... somehow I can't pin this on him when the D is that bad.

FFS!

Yeah let's just give the Bruins some confidence.

So frustrating to watch the Canucks get outworked so badly.

WTF Luongo! This ain't the Blackhawks. It's no like these are bonafide snipers.

Shot count is very misleading. This implosion was inevitable with poor passing and failure to win any one on one battles.
