Did I miss something? After Simmonds contacted the puck with a high stick, why was the faceoffs still inside the defensive zone?

The Devils are playing inspired. Canucks need to settle it down. They don’t look up for it.

Guys had so many opportunities to get it out and didn't.

It all started when Bo's line got hemmed in. Pearson had at least 2 tries and it ended up with the penalty.

Refs discretion. Canucks could have played it and they didn't.

Anyone with half a brain would not play that puck and the refs punished the Canucks for that?

Hall and J Hughes having their way. Thought maybe someone would have scouted them. Free as birds.

The Leivo with Bo experiment should be scrapped now. Please.

Honestly, when is Green & Brown going to change up a powerplay configuration that is not optimal? When they go 2 for 50? 2 for 100?

When they start losing a bunch of close games because of special teams?

You know why people think the drop-pass doesn't work? Because Edler is so slow and indecisive that he has no other options other than the drop-pass. Without the Sedins to bring the puck into the zone, that play is even worse. But it seems to work well for all the other teams.

Try something else coaches. You can't rely on 90 plus percent PK all season to win games.

both Boeser and Pettersson's shots have been way off the targets this season



Canucks need to start creating more traffic and stop shooting from outside too

Geez, is Blackwood going to get another SHUTOUT against us?

Is this worse than the Taylor Hall elbow where he only got 4 minutes?

These afternoon games aren't good for Brain DEdler. Too much early fog.

Gimme a break

That wasn't even a dirty play

Coleman went so low it's almost as if he skated into Edler's arm

Devils are doing all these unnecessary rough stuff to give out free PPs.

Canucks really really have to capitalise on one of these opportunities

Too many missed nets, but I feel some goals coming.

Need to see some other playres cranking it up, 1st line not getting the bounces yet.
