GDT Nov 18th 2007: Nucks and Flames 5PM SNET

Postby levelheaded » Sun Nov 18, 2007 12:18 pm

Should be a great game tonight. The Flames are coming off a gritty win over the Oilers last night, and the Canucks are riding high thanks to this great run. A chance to improve to 8-0-1 in the division and move 2 games over .500 with a win tonight. Can it be done? Will Bourdon step it up again after finally scoring his first NHL goal? Can Luongo keep dominating the way he has for the last couple of weeks? Was the 6-2 win over the Wild for real? Have we turned this season around?

*cheesy announcer voice* Find out... TONIGHT


I say 4-2 Canucks, Mitchell, Daniel X2 and Morrison will be our goalscorers. Bourdon with a couple of assists.

Hmmmm I say the " cheesy announcer " gotta be smoking tooooo much BC grown.. A tight game tonight.. Isbister, Pyatt, Kessler line to be our top 5 on 5 line of the night. Mo to score. D maybe without Ohlund according to todays Province . Sedins 1 goal on PP. Score? 3 - 2 Canucks. Bourdon with an assist. Goal scorers ? Mo, Sedin, Isbister - jus coz he is due :)

All bets are off without Ohlund... Flames win 3-2

Well I'll be at work for this game, but luckily I bought an XM subscription yesterday so I'll be able to listen to the game. Flames should be tired having played late last night. Hopefully the Canucks continue their dominance against the North West

Hey L.I.G. it's nice to see that I'm not the only poor sap who has to work on Sunday night. I don't have the luxury of listening to the radio but I can check the scores online every now and then.

I predict 2-1 Flames. Our goal by Kessler.

Stupid Center Ice Online... Doesn't let me watch because I'm in the Flames/Oilers Region. Pisses me off.

Canucks 5-1 - with Naslund's hattrick

Bah! Calgary scores on their first shot, totally against the flow of play. I'm not happy.

Wow, what a nice goal by ... Mitchell, of all the people! Beautiful moves by Naslund to set that one up!

HUGE WIN!!

Love the box score. Got some great secondary scoring, or in this case fourthly scoring (Izzy and Willie) and Nazzy gets a few points to boot.

Now let's hope they keep it up on the road.

This board is surprisingly quiet for such a big game against a classic rival. I was fortunate enough to be able to watch the whole game without being interrupted by work (or the guilt of procrastinating on a paper).

I was really impressed with how the Canucks started in the first period; it could have been 3-0 Canucks after the first few minutes. But once Calgary tied it up with their first shot of the game, I got the sinking "we wasted all our chances and now we're gonna pay" feeling in the pit of my stomach. It didn't help when we got in severe penalty trouble early in the second, with two 5-on-3's!

Amazingly, our penalty kill (and Lou) survived the onslaught, and shortly thereafter, the well-rested Swedish line set up Willie Mitchell(!) with a highlight-reel goal which proved to be the game winner. Things only got better from there, with a great goal by Naslund, and even a goal from Isbister in the third! I feel sorry for anyone who chose Kiprusoff in their hockey pool (but not too sorry, lol...)

Yay Canucks!

I think lost in all of this is the fact we've gone from 3 games under .500 to 2 games over in the last 6 games. This run is nothing short of incredible... 8-0-1 in the division now... (not to mention 3 points back of first place Minnesota with a game in hand...)
