Our PK was actually pretty decent when you think of the number of penalties in a row assessed. The 4 minute double-minor to Hamhuis was a great kill and generated momentum. The PP was horrendous. Has been all season and for the tail end of last season.

I thot the luxury of having 2 good goalies was to play the guy who is hot or playing better. AV failed there.
Yeah. But Vigneault is probably gone now. Thankfully.

Yeah, he wasn't very noticeable out there tonight. But no excuses.

No excuses. Casual Kev was just that.....too casual at times.

Our PK was so bad that giving them a PP was basically giving them a free goal. Nucks didn't play well for sure, but they got like zero breaks. The series could of easily been tied 2-2, instead we get swept. At least give the Nucks a chance to come back to pro-long the series a bit to make the series more entertaining.
More excuses. Reffing was shit. The Canucks didn't deserve the series when the puck dropped in Vancouver. The team has been destroyed all year by fast forechecking teams that collapse to the net on defense and pressure hard on the PK. The team never adjusted. No excuses.
