Heading into Detroit the Canucks were breathing a sigh of relief that Datsuyk wasn't going to be available on Thursday and that got them thinking ahead of themselves. Right?
The Sedins, Burrows and Kesler were tired after those two exhausting games against those power house Leafs and Oilers. Right?
I don't actually think there's a team in the league that can play with the Canucks, the healthy Canucks, on a game by game basis.
But these guys are fuckin' lazy and complacent.
If this doesn't get turned around soon, by which I don't mean next month, a solid opponent will take them out of the playoffs in the first round.
You read it here first.
I am not sure what you have been watching lately. If the Canucks were lazy in this game, they must be sleeping in the last few weeks. With a bit of luck, they could be easily up 2-0 in the first period. The game would have been so different if they were up 2-0 eh? You can't win them all and the Preds are no slouch.
The scoring chances were 16-10 for Vancouver after 2 periods. That's a bigger swing than even the Toronto or Edmonton games. If that's lazy, I hope they play with their feet up in the playoffs.
In the third period the wheels did fall off. That appeared to be the result of running out of gas in the 3rd game in 4 nights.
