GDT: Jan 7/17 Canucks @ Flames 7:00 pm CBC

Post by Hockey Widow » Sat Jan 07, 2017 1:12 pm

Markstrom to start

Tanev stays in Vancouver, Biega in.

Rodin day to day.
Burrows day to day
Boucher day to day. Only because he just got here, no health issues. Really means WD needs to find a way to get him into the lineup.

One of them will play tonight. I suspect Burrows in this back to back which is expected to be a tougher match.

Hank still 4 assists away from 1000. Would love him to get them all tonight in a convincing win. Just cause it would really piss cowpoke off even more.

I expect Calgary to come out early to try and establish dominance. They are dressing a tougher lineup tonight. Well one change anyway. I think they will want to test Markstrom early and often. Markstrom says he expects a tough game and expects a lot of crease crashing. Says he is motivated to keep this streak going and getting his chance to run with it. Hope he has one of his best games so far.

My heart says Canucks but my head says if they don't play more in the O zone, don't generate more chances, let Calgary dictate the game again, it will be an early night.

Crazy, last time they were in Calgary they only generated 14 shots, lowest of the season and lost. Last night they beat that record and only generated 13 shots and won, scoring 4 goals. If they continue this trend against Calgary I can't predict a win. But my heart says wtf, 6-0 Vancouver!
The only HW the Canucks need

Well, we are 6-0 in our last 6 games. We're approaching a CBJ-like win streak! It extends to 7 tonight.

6-0 Canucks. Season low 6 shots on goal. 6 goals for. 100% shooting percentage. :mrgreen:
Try to focus on THIS year...

Right now only Canadian team not in the playoffs is Winnipeg. This is nice to see after being shut out last season.

Hope Tanev gets back quick. Big hole to fill.
Big win if we can steal a point tonight.
It will be tough to beat the flames back to back.
Gut check time.
We are all Jim Benning.

Kings just beat the Wild in OT, Canucks need a big win tonight in order to stay on the hunt to renew the Vancouver/Chicago playoff rivalry.

3-2 Canucks in OT. Shots 56-17 Calgary.

Like I said yesterday...

roll with the punches, and try to get a point or two....don't get outshot.
Be hard to win two in a row vs the Flamers!

Haven't seen the team in a couple weeks and looking forward to this one although if its a 40+ to13 shot difference thats not fun to watch either.
Was the last game really that lop sided?
