"We need different guys to step up at different times, and we got that all series. I couldn’t be prouder of our guys. We have a lot of confidence as a group and have a lot of guys who want to win. We got the job done in this series and we have a long road ahead." - Horvat
“I know that you need contributions throughout your lineup. Can't just manufacture that. I got a lot of belief in all our guys. To beat a team like St. Louis you're not going to do it with one or two guys.” - Green
---------------
"I'm trying to just enjoy tonight. Obviously they're the number one ranked team on this side, so we'll have our hands full. But we'll be ready for Game 1." - Green on Vegas.
---------------
"Probably was, yeah. That first period was impressive by our group. We wanted to come out and play extremely fast, play in their zone. The caliber of the team that we played was exceptional, and we played a 60 minute game." - Green if that was the most complete effort of the year
---------------
"Phenomenal. It's a tall task, a tall order to ask of him, & he's had an exceptional season. He's an exceptional player. There's always gonna be a knock on him as to whether he can play against top lines, and he's shown that he can." - Green on how Hughes matched against O'Reilly

Post game interviews; Troy Stecher / Jacob Markstrom / Brock Boeser....then>>next seg. ..Travis Green

https://www.nhl.com/canucks/video/post- ... /c-5406918

Troy is Troy, trying to say ALL the right things. Marky, as usual, praises the team. Brock says "for sure" a lot ..
Travis hands out some praise for individual players but very much talks about contributions from the whole team being the ticket to success.

Next three; Tyler Motte / Jay Beagle / Antoine Russell

About commitment as a group. Beagle knows, he's had experience. Very focused group. encouraging.

Image in a metaphorical sense as he smiles, :wow:

How much was talked about this spring and summer in terms of the Canucks, their defending (or lack thereof), and their proclivity for giving up odd man rushes this year? Article after article explaining the analytic side showing how poor they were at defending off the rush...

Granted St. Louis is more of a ground and pound team, but I'm having a hard time recalling a clear-cut 2 on 1 in the entire 6 game series.

Credit to Green and his staff for re-working their blue line pinches and neutral zone game during the pre-playoff camp. They are a completely different team from the one we saw in February and March.

Bravo Canucks!

Good on Green!

Sure drank lots of beer tonight ! Stecher's second goal and Mott - holy fuck Motte! It was such a team win for the Canucks. How could we or St Lou know that so many Canuck players would rise to the occasion? I think the Canucks are destiny's team.

So hey, way to go Benning! I remember how from the eastern media he got no love for picking up the price for 3rd and 4th liners like Beagle, and. Roussel, Benning was always having to defend himself for the money he put out. He was so right. He's created a nice mix. I don't recall hearing a single word yet on popular media about the mix the canucks have because of Benning making the choices he did. They berated him all the time. So here we are, fuck the eastern media!

HW offers the ultimate fact,
12 more wins

Its going to be a major battle to get past Vegas. Get past Vegas, and we go up against Colorado probably - wow - we might be in for quite a ride here ,

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Quite the ride last night but thanks to the Flames and them blowing a 3-0 lead to an inferior team compared to the Blues, I felt no comfort until Motte made it 5-1 late in the game. Just a great team win with contributions from everybody. Was worried about the secondary scoring after Game 4 but the bottom six came alive.

I'm not much for the "Canada's team" thing, I don't cheer for other teams based on where they play out of and it's also why I don't get too wrapped up in sports or leagues where Vancouver doesn't have a team so to expect others to would be hypocritical on my part.

Only matters is Surrey's team.
