GDT: 10/21/07 Nucks and Jackets 2:00pm PST PPV/ 1040

Sportsnet is saying that Luongo is playing in this one as well. Maybe he'll get the day off against the Canes tomorrow, but I don't like playing our backup against a red-hot team. Even if they are from the Eastern Conference.

Pascal Leclaire seems to be finally living up to expectations and is leading the NHL in shutouts with 3. The Jackets look weak on paper again this year, but they've had a strong start to the season. This is another tough test.

I say 2-1 Nucks in the SO. Daniel with the only goal, Morrison with the Shootout winner.

GO CANUCKS GO

EDIT: Sanford is playing tonight according to 1040. This is a big test for him. He needs a solid showing to prove he can play 10-12 games this year.

Noone here tonight, but FINALLY a 2-0 lead. Bieksa sounds like he's playing a lot better tonight. Maybe LA was a wake up call for him and the team.

Solid first period. Nice to see Kes and BXA get their firsts. Let's hope things keep going this way.
GO CANUCKS GO !!!

A 2-goal lead, with Sanford in goal is a pleasant, if somewhat unexpected, surprise. Hopefully they'll not blow it in the second this time.

Shots are now 20-6 for Columbus, halfway through the game. What's going on, folks?

Ahhh, penalties again. That will soon be the anthem of this team.

5 straight penalties against the Canucks, including an unsportsmanlike conduct by Mitchell? We're lucky Columbus hasn't scored a trio of goals a la the Canucks other second period meltdowns.

WTF - Outshot 14-0? How does that happen? Good thing Nonis left this core intact over the summer.

Wow, zero shots in the whole second period. We do NOT deserve to be winning this game.

Sanford must be standing on his head, eh? At least he's the one guy who showed up to play.

Shotless period... just sad. I don't know why, historically, the Vancouver Canucks have had so much difficulty building on success. While some teams are able to maintain a high level of play for decades, assimilate new players into their culture, etc., it seems every step forward the Canucks take in seasonal terms is followed by two steps back.

Why is a team who was so dominant last year so terrible this year? Was Jan Bulis that good?

Wow, is the Captain back? I was about to trade him to Anaheim for a bag of pucks.

Nucks win 4-1.

Sanford has looked better than Luongo so far this year. ;)
