It was actually a terrible game for the Canucks. Calgary dominated the 2nd and 12 min of the 3rd.

Great game for Markstrom. Good character win by all. The D was very good defensively, but inept many a time with the puck.

On a pure entertainment level tho it doesn’t get any better unless we are stomping them 11-0. That was epic entertainment.

You'll note I said "game", and not "effort". ;)

Maybe it's cuz he's our best D-man healthy, so he's the logical guy to play on his weak side. It's as simple as that.

Man, great game tonite. I didn't think we were going to get the 2 pts, but seems like Marky held the fort. Nice to see Leivo with another strong game. He seems to have the stuff to be a top 6 for us: soft hands, some dangle and some much needed size to bring to our top 2 lines. He's looking like a great pickup for JB, a gift from the Dubas and the Leaves. :)

Post game; Pettersson--Markstrom--Green..other stuff too..

Funny;https://twitter.com/fr_aquilini/status/ ... 2%3Fs%3D19


Finally we get the extra point. :)
Marky was stupendous, and so humble, (watch the post game). What a guy!
It's not really for real though, until we stop taking entire periods or half periods, off.
I wouldn't feel so bad about the penalties if they were for just a wee bit over the line for hard hits or being aggressive, but we are still
taking too many lazy stick infractions. Gotta clean that up..
This was the second of 4 games I get to go to this year. This was alot better that the Caps one earlier.
Atmosphere in the building is way better now.
Rousell chirps a lot. From the bench too.
They really miss Edler.
Let's see, things the camera doesn't really show, visibly or audibly;
Marky yells alot, direct things well, warns guys to get back or break/break. Stuff like that.
Pettersson is way faster then the camera shows. Brock covers way more ground than people think. He thinks the game real good!
Horvat is a good skater too. Stecher is really fast.
Biega goes all over the place like a crazy man. Huttons fast.
The Flames are really fast. Scary actually. If the Flames have a fault, it's not covering the fast break when the play turns.
Their line changes were worse than ours.
If it makes anyone feel better, their bench is quiet compared to ours. We have a very up-beat attitude, well, from most...
