The Avalanche look quicker than Vancouver for the most part, and are winning most of the battles for the puck. Hell, they are outshooting Vancouver 28-17 after 2 periods. Luongo has been pretty good, and cannot be blamed for any of the 3 goals scored on him.
This game must feel like a nightmare for Vigneault and perhaps even Joel Quennville, as it resembles a game that really could end up being 7-6.
The bottom line is that the Canucks need to put together a solid effort in the 3rd period, score the winning goal, and shut down the explosively quick Avalanche offence. But it's like I said earlier, the Canucks have had a hard time doing that all season long against the Avs. Well, in the words of Han Solo: "Here goes nothing!"
I don't believe it! Hank Sedin scores right away, assisted by Ken Klee!!! 4-3!
Holy shit: Arnason goes in the box, and Morrison scores after a great feed by Naslund! Does Cooke have 3 points already?!
-OK, time to sober up..Laperierre scores a beauty..great pass from Arnason. Oh shit, the Avs are pressing! 5-4!
-Alas, the Canucks held the Avs at bay, shut them down, and won this game 5-4.
