That was the ugliest Canuck win I've seen in a long time.
So we killed them in the 1st and 2nd (they didn't get a shot on goal in the 2nd period until almost 10 minutes in), then they pressured in the 3rd. 2/3 of the game was ours but they deserved the win?
That math doesn't add up.
Agreed. It was an ugly win.....at least the final 20 minutes of it anyhow.
It was how we played. We couldn't complete a pass to save our lives, gave Minny countless golden looks at Luongo and basically looked like we did in game 1.
We went into the 3rd up a goal and Minny were unlucky to not score at least 2 or 3 on us....not getting even one when you outplay a team that bad is pretty unlucky...if you ask me.
Bravo to RL on that one. He stood tall. Maybe this 2 goalie thing is a good call.
I thought there were quite a few good looks that we got on Kuemper that should have been goals as well. The kid played very well in his first NHL game. Minnesota was lucky not to be down 3 or 4 going into that last period. It all came out in the wash.
