Nice game, hope the empty net goal for Kesler is a start.

Another point to CH, good to see that.

Now the BIG question is who starts in net on the next game?

I hope AV would go with the hot hand.

Still baffled that Colorado traded away a potential lottery pick for an average goalie. Did they really think that roster was ready for some kind of playoff run?

AFAIC, Gillis & co. can easily set the bar at a 1st and 2nd to rival GM's when Cory's name comes up in discussion. But let's face it, he's not going anywhere b/w now and March simply for draft picks.

Thanks for the insight HW.

It makes perfect sense. Schneids is hot and a back-to-back is coming up.

My thoughts exactly.

And not just a trip to the final, a full seven game final to boot.

People sound like the Nucks were awful in the playoffs.
They weren't. They were too beat up to go all the way, but they were just a few bad calls away from it....
Had the refs used the same rule book in the final as in the regular season we'd quite likely be champs.

Two 5on5 goals and one empty netter.

That's pretty impressive (or lucky)

I didn't see the game. Recap anyone?

finaly some good 5 on 5 play even being down a Dman, scneider has been playing lights out the last 2 games. i think a bit of a goalie controversy gonna be good for the nucks. on a sidenote flame fan crying big time about their diving team in detroilet last night.

The second one of those guys was also a big part of Schneider almost not having a shut out. Brutal play on a 1-on-1 and 3 or 4 turnovers in his own zone because he was too casual with the puck. If it wasn't for Alberts, Bieksa would easily been the canucks worst D-man on the night. At least from what I was watching.

Generally though they played a good road game that had a dominant first 30 minutes for the canucks.

5-on-5 the canucks gave the Avs pretty much nothing. Most of the Avs chances were on the PP and in the third where Schneider came up huge. As you want your goaltender to do.

As I mentioned before, Bieksa will always be Causal Kev unless it is a contract year. I just hope that the Canucks do not have to wait til 2015/16 to see the Bieksa from last year. :(

Good road win. The offence still isn't clicking but the canucks mucked it up and got the 2-points.

-Schneider was the best player on either team. All things being equal the Canucks have gotten good goal tending this month. That will need to continue as the offence still isn't clicking. Schneider against Phoenix is the right call. he is rolling and we need to lock down the wins. They can roll the dice against the Sharks on Saturday as that game will be tough either way.

-It may just an an empty netter but it could be just what the doctor ordered for Kesler. People have been ripping him constantly but the only thing he isn't doing right now is finishing. He must have had a half dozen quality chances last night, last year a couple of those go in and most of us are raving about his game. Hopefully he relaxes a bit now and stops turning his stick into sawdust.

-Speaking of sticks, wtf is with Edlers. Someone should remind him that the cup final seemingly turned in Bostons favor when his stick exploded in game 2.

-Someone else should tell Bieksa not to take a nap.

-Andrew Alberts may not be a very good player, but he seems to be a very good penalty killer.

-Cody Hodgson with another solid game. Continues to be one of our better forwards on a nightly basis. That pass to Manny is the type of higher end offensive play that has been lacking from our bottom 3 lines who have predominantly been made up of north / south forwards. A guy with some creativity and higher end puck skill gives us a different look.

-Nice to see Manny get a goal and play a decent all round game. The other positive was that when he did an interview after the 2nd period his eye didn't look all fucked up like it did earlier in the season. He isn't out of the woods yet but today I'm a bit more optimistic that he can return to some level of competence.
