Loved the PP to end the game. Hank decides we don't need to score, just don't give up a shorty so he plays keep away. Had me laughing. The number one unit on for the full 121 seconds to end the game and didn't take a shot. But the Stars got gassed and couldn't get the puck to even try for the tying goal. Our best PP all year.
I liked how once the other Canuck's realized what Hank was doing they played right along.
Pretty boring game even if there were 7 goals scored. Cory is looking average. Lets in at least one bad goal a game then makes these unbelievable saves. Remind you of anyone? Gotta wonder why AV is running Cory right now and not Luongo. Did Cory's agent sounding off in the press work? Did MG get involved? Have they seen enough of Luongo this year to know they can get a good return and don't want him hurt? Are they trying to decide if they want to keep Luongo and want to see more of Cory as a number one? Is it just a coin toss? Does it really matter they way they are both playing?
Man our D runs around so much. I don't think we have had one calm game from them this season where they were methodical and controlled the whole game. Brain fart after brain fart, failed clearing after failed clearing. And ya, our forwards are leaving them out to dry a lot this season.
Good that Kassian is no longer Gassian but he has lost some intensity. He looked better tonight. Tomorrow on the back to back it will be interesting to see how he responds. Of does he sit?
Watching last season and this season so far makes me realize how good the team was the year they went to the finals with Boston. They just seemed so controlled and followed the game plan and you just felt that could win every night. I see them making the playoffs but not getting out of the West unless they find their Mojo once again, if they have it to find.
