Kesler has a great wrist shot off the rush...his speed allows him room to get it off...add to that it's deadly accurate....what a combination.

Great game.... dont always need 6 goals.

LIVE FROM THE PRESS BOX: CROSBY POINTLESS

Postby B. Mackin » Sat Dec 08, 2007 10:41 pm

For the second game in a row, Sidney Crosby is held pointless by a Northwest division team.
His penalty shot after Aaron Miller pulled him down on a breakaway was just wide. Roberto Luongo got his glove on the puck to prevent a rebound.
Overtime ended with the puck on Crosby's stick, but a second too late for him to make a wraparound attempt.

Does the Nucks' lack of legitimate triggermen ever show up in the shootout. Thankfully, for the most part, it is a team game.

Mr. Linden though - talk about a true clutch player - that is why he still wears a Canucks uniform. If only he were 10 years younger.

Good for Sabourin. Always did like him in his time here. Also very nice to see the Penguins playing out west. Too bad we only get to play them once or twice a year - looks like there could be some real rivalry there if given a few more games.

What a game eh?

Too bad we didn't win, but it certainly lived up to its billing. I was on the edge of my seat the entire night. Can't say that's happened very often this year. At least we got the point.

Sid the Kid with a penalty shot on Luongo in OT? You can't write this stuff.

That game had everything, makes you yearn for the days of the tie.

LIVE FROM THE PRESS BOX: STANDING O FOR LUONGO

Postby B. Mackin » Sat Dec 08, 2007 11:53 pm

There was indeed a massive standing ovation for Luongo, as fans walked out on his third shootout loss of the season. The shootout is apparently not among Alain Vigneault's special teams strategies. The only saving grace? The Pens are an Eastern conference team, so the point they took away will not harm the Canucks' standings.

And yet again, Kesler's the best player for the Canucks, while our six million dollar man is invisible.

Are you seriously saying that Naslund was invisible? I thought him and the Sedins were the only line that even vaguely threatened, and it hadn't been for the momentum shift they create Kesler would never have scored. Kess did a good job shutting down Crosby, but other than the goal he scored he was invisible offensively. Naslund on the other hand, while not all world, did a pretty good job leading our offence.

Too bad the schedule only allows us west coasters a look see at the East coast teams every couple of years. Some excellent young talent on the Pengiuns team.

Luongo is clearly an elite player. He held the Nux in this game when it seemed they were skating in quick sand due to their latest scheduling nightmare until the team was able to generate some energy.

At times it seemed the Pens were going to blow out the Whales. Even their energy line with Laraque dominated at times. But Roberto was equal to the onslaught.

While the Nux did have a chance in OT and the SO, Luongo stole a point in this game and garners a new appreciation from this fan.

Leading them where, exactly? Our offense, in case you weren't paying attention, was terrible last night. Okay, maybe it was a "road game at home", and thus can be forgiven, but that doesn't get sugar coated to "pretty good job".

You're on drugs, right? Which ones?

Kesler scored the tying goal. He made Crosby 0-0-0 & -1. You're suggesting he didn't do enough? That Naslund somehow did better?

Are you sure you're not GM masquerading around as LH?
