So, that was a good game last night, wasn't it? 3 powerplay goals were scored by the Canucks, but the Avalanche spoiled Cory Schneider's 3rd chance at a shutout as the Canucks won 3-1. Now, in that game, our powerplay went 3 for 4, which boosted our overall PP to 28.3%, which was more than enough to give us the league-wide lead. Also, it's nice to see that our road PP is now at a whopping 36%. Tomorrow night will pose a challenge though, since the Red Wings just happen to currently have the 2nd-best PK in the league. Special teams battle, anyone?
Speaking of tomorrow's game, I will be at it. Yes, in a couple hours from now, I'll be on my way to Vancouver, where my sister and I will attend tomorrow night's matchup. I won't have my computer with me, so I won't be able to check in here until I get back Sunday. However, I will be able to tweet, so keep an eye on my Twitter feed.
