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

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

I'll be travelling on BC ferries during the first half of this game - hopefully they'll be showing it on the onboard TV. The Canucks are decided underdogs in this contest, with their dismal home record. But their last 2 games - and their perfect divisional record - give me reason to be optimistic. I...

Grr... another defensive breakdown and Colorado scores with 10 seconds left. However, we managed to hold on for a satisfying 4-3 victory against a Colorado team which dominated the 3rd period. Luongo was brilliant.

Methinks we should play all our games on the road! ;-)

2-man advantage for a minute here... thanks to Kesler's magnificent rush. And YES! Even as I write this, Sedin scores another!

Arghh! Isbister takes a needless penalty in the attacking zone when we're up by 2. Colorado scores seconds later---after yet another terrible giveaway by Ohlund---and this game is now 3-2.

Woohoo! Kesler deserves a goal for all of his great effort this season. Colorado defense was just terrible on that play, letting Pyatt get 4 whacks at the puck right in front of Budaj. 3-1 Canucks!

Second period: * Luongo made several good saves. Some of those he wouldn't have had to make if Ohlund wouldn't keep coughing up the puck. Grr... * We're giving up too many odd-man rushes. I must have counted at least 3 in each of the first 2 periods. While it makes for exciting hockey, this isn't re...

Crud. I was just going to write about how Colorado was getting more chances on our power-plays than the Canucks---and now they've scored. Very sloppy defensive play on our part. Why do the Canucks always suck in the second period?

A few things I noticed during the first period: * Weaver looked great on the penalty kill. * Edler and Bourdon looked comfortable, which is an absolute Must if the Canucks are going to hold their ground during their current injury trouble. * Isbister needs to receive passes cleanly instead of lettin...

Yay! The play has been surprisingly even so far, with the exception of Pyatt's and Henrik's blunderheaded penalties. At least Henrik made it up with his assist on Daniel's goal.

GDT: 11/03/07 - Canucks at Colorado, 7:00PM CBC/1040

The Canucks have been playing miserably of late; they've lost 6 of their last 8, and are tied for last in the Western Conference. The Avalanche, on the other hand, have won 4 straight, are 6-0 at home, and lead the Northwest. To make matters worse for the Canucks, defensemen Salo, Bieksa, and Krajic...

They mentioned Krajicek twisted his ankle out on the street yesterday.
