GDT: Canucks visit the Flamers - PPV, 1040

Post by Cornuck » Tue Mar 25, 2008 2:32 pm

Another day, another HUGE game.

With the pending loss of Luongo for a few games, the need to win has increased. Canucks have done well so far this season against Calgary, so hopefully we'll have them figured out again.

GO CANUCKS!!!

Well if Luongo is out(?) then it's pretty unfair to ask Sanford to come in and be anything but average after so long without a sniff of action. We may just have to take it on the chin tonight and move on in that case.

I think every game we play until the end of the year is "huge." A win would effectively guarantee us a playoff spot (I think). I say 4-2 Canucks. Salo, Bieksa, and Daniel X2 for us, IginlaX2 for them.

Apparently Huselius is a healthy scratch tonight despite being 2nd on the team in points. Looks like the Keenan factor is starting to kick in.

Taylor Pyatt opens the game with a fight and performs quite admirably for an unlikely candidate to drop the gloves. He was definitely hanging on at the end there and looked exhausted.

All Canucks fans will have to continue to play a waiting game, regarding whether or not Reoberto Luongo is in the line-up or not. I just hope the Canucks are in a safe place when the time comes for Luongo to be with his wife.

Should be an interesting power play and hopefully the Canucks can continue their decent PP record and pot one here.

When it rains, it pours! THe Canucks have completely taken over this game, picking up the two quick goals and controlling the play.

I'd like to see them go up 3-0, but that's also the most dangerous lead in hockey. Maybe 2-0 is good enough!
