The Blues willl be desperate from the opening puck drop - they'll want to send a message to these young upstarts and try to throw them off their game. We'll need some pushback / revenge to keep them somewhat honest, but the boys better be prepared to battle. This is where the vets make their money. They've seen this shit before and know what to do. They're here to set the examples, and make sure the kids survive the bullshit coming their way.

Yep - Power play needs to click, and Myers needs to stay out of the box. ;)

I'm so glad we beat Billington in Game 1, before he had a chance to get in the shooter's heads.

As long as continue to battle through the full 60, we got this one.

GO CANUCKS GO!

The Blues will come to play, not try and intimidate like the first game. One way I think the Canucks can exploit is the Blues will possibly
overuse their top two lines. Weather the storm early and then, strike hard.

Do you think Billington will bounce back today and get a SHUTOUT?

Move the puck and make them skate. They wore themselves down last game trying to KO the canucks and it plays right into the canucks hands if they continue.

Yah, puck recovery in our zone and quick efficient breakouts are key to manage the Blues heavy forechecking and cycle game. Saves us a lot of wear and tear.

Expect a more disciplined and focus Blues side today. Hopefully we can still play up tempo and with speed and dictate play.

Let’s rock and roll!

I’m impressed the young ones have adapted so quickly to playoff hockey.
Remember that this is new territory for Petey, Brock and Quinn, but they do it so well, and woth every game they gain more experience.

I think they eke out a win tonight. Nucks win 3-2 in ot. Miller with the gwg.
Whatever you do, always give 100 %!

well at least there's no leaks in the bubble........, but,

Bo Horvat was just on the radio. He's ready, the teams ready. They know the importance of a good start.

20 players taking warm-up Gaudette and Juolevi taking part too.
Looks like no changes...
