Good shake up by AV... and great goal by Burrows.. But Lou is the *Star.. Dammm its time this crew played 60 minutes of good hockey.. Splitting the twins might be the only way to get this team going?

Atta boy Ray Ray.

Still not a top 6 forward though. :D

Goal.

To be fair, Raymond does have a wrister - from the outside.

Like I was saying Mason Raymond is a highly valuable and versatile asset... :oops:

Kind of a worrying trend... the Canucks haven't won by more than a goal since January 4th. That's 10 straight games.

We were lucky to get a point out of this.

Luongo deserved better.

They were lucky to get a point, can't be upset about losing in the gimmick. As soon it went to the shootout, I knew we were done...wasn't even close, in any way. Wings deserved to win...maybe best that the boys hit the road, get some focus back. While I don't think for a second the Canucks deserved a better fate, they were some seriously bad missed calls in the 3rd. I was shocked the Canucks didn't get one of those..anyway, take the point and get back to work.

Agree real lucky to get a point... this team looks lazy.. Not much except goaltending to cheer about.. Good call by AV shaking up the lines.. other than that .. bleh...

For sure, but fortunately stealing points along the way, so they are buying time without losing ground while they (hopefully) regroup and get back in sync.

But all year the execution has been lacking for the full 60 minutes.....dangerous game they're playing heading into the stretch.

It was interesting to listen to Gary Valk after the game.

He pointed out that Kesler had 5 hits during the game. A good sign for his future production. Kesler hasn't been right this season.

Is it playoffs time already? 1 PP in 2 games. They certainly haven't out hustled the opposition but there have been countless things that COULD have been called over the past 2 games.

Edit - if there is a SCF rematch the Canucks should wear Carolina Hurricanes jerseys.

Highlights of the the 3-0 whooping of Boston by Carolina were nice.

Including multiple high sticks on Marchand, without any penalties called on them.
