Another reason to tune in. I’m excited to see what Rafferty can bring. It’s only one game but good for the Canucks to get him in.

Green said he’s been thinking for awhile to try Virtanen with Pettersson and Boeser. He said most wingers can play both sides and he’d rather have Virtanen switch sides than Boeser. Said he wants speed on the forecheck and someone to go hard to the net and hard on puck retrieval.

It’s a shift by shift determination. But he’d like to see it these last two games as the staff gets ready for evaluations for next year.

Wonder if Goldobin is done here or if this is a version of the Hutton plan.

I want a win. I want Pettersson and Brock and Bo to all reach 30 goals. LOL. Two games, they can do it!!

This would be cool to see, JV would also be pumped.

Game 81 and I'm really looking forward to it. Yesterday, I did not give it much thought,.................at all.
A total under statement but Jake's gotta just kill it tonight. It's huge for him, but um, no pressure- 8-)

Some of this Canuck Twitter stuff is hilarious ;

Put the two wingers with the most goals on Petterson's line. Doesn't take a genius!

Bo's line is also good. Either way. Just let Jake develop some chemistry with someone. He does too many lone man rushes.

Didn’t know that Rafferty, our Rafferty not the Craig List Killer, is legally blind in his right eye. Amazing story to make it this far in hockey. Should he have a tough game I can see all those one liners already.

Did you see that? Rafferty didn’t.

Rafferty got blind sided on that play.

Rafferty couldn’t see the puck on that play.

Blind pass by Rafferty.

Rafferty didn’t see Pettersson open on that play.

Yes, they are. But you should just turn a blind eye.
