The leaves are down 2-0. It on HNIC. Only the Canucks are allowed to be called for a penalty.
I know the agenda but that was too obvious.

Poor Trojan. A shot to the ankle that felled him. He came back. Now a puck to the face. I wonder if Topper has a hit out on him?

Could Stecher be any luckier?

I would seriously love to see Pouliot on the 1st unit.

I'm sure there would be way less drop-passes to no-one and he would actually pass the puck to Brock.

Jake, better luck next time!

Some real speed and skill there. If he can do that 3 times a game, maybe he doesn't need to do 2 hits a period anymore.

If Goldobin got a penalty for a one handed slash, shouldn't Virtanen just draw one there?

Thank gawd that period is over. Leaves took it to us but gotta say Markstrom was great and a number of our forwards made some great defensive plays.

But still glad it's over. Time to regroup and play the third the way we played the first.

Vanes needs to sit a game.

Looks tired, no energy.

Sometimes he coasts so obviously uninterested in effort.

This is not the kind of game for Vanek. Trying to hold a lead with Leaves full-press mode.

For a guy who made a career from shooting, he's trying to do too much playmaking in Van. He can't pass but can't stop passing. Those turnovers get him into trouble.

Unless it's a crafty way to get himself more ice-time.

A couple of those lax Goldy defensive plays ain't gonna endear him to the coach.

Started watching halfway through the 2nd and man I have to say...as a fan this team has done a total 180 from the past few seasons. I love what I see. Even though they're in over their head a bit they're all heart.

That was Vanek coasting. A chance to clear but he refuses to skate down the puck.

Goddamn Vanek. You caused that goal with some soft, soft work on the boards.

Marky deserved better.

Holy Shit, Jovo! We's on the same wavelength.
