The zebras are freaking blind. Gudbranson got a can opener and didn't get a call.

57 to go.

The last PP was brutal, the Sedin's just dont click like they used to.

Really like again what i am seeing on the hard skating and quick puck movement.

Another solid effort. We just might break that 65 point barrier!

The gods must have got the program turned upside down.

How else can you explain a Vancouver - Edmonton tie for 1st in the NHL?

Nice win. Stay healthy. Keep it going on the weekend.

Next Friday huge game against Edmonton could determine which team gets the presidents trophy.

Hold off the laundry. The sheets are still dry.
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

Even though one could say it was a bad time to take a penalty, glad to see Gudbranson nail Larsson.
That was a code that had to be answered.
When Markstrom got hit, I thought Linden was on his way down to take care of it :shock:
Horvat had a great game!

I know it's early. But the Canucks are now 1st in the NHL.

But the Sedins/Larsen combo - the trio have 17 minutes time on ice together on the powerplay (most on the team) is now ranked 2nd last in the league.

This has to change.

Well, I guess Larsen is there cause he'll get into a position to shoot, and he does. That's fine and dandy but I think if you put a radar on that shot, you might see about 82.

That much!? All I see are wristers from the blue line. Here's hoping he continues to build confidence and gets a few in his wheelhouse.

Larsen is just fine on the PP. Quick puck movement, gets his shot off quickly and more often than not, on target for a tip.

Note on Daniel's goal, he rotated to behind the net to be closer to Henrik and work the cycle with Sutter moving over to the side Daniel has occupied.........just as I have suggested.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

You don't need a big slapper to score on the power play all the time. Sometimes a wrister works better getting through the traffic.
