All hail the mighty KesLord!!! After already missing on 4 chances at a hat trick this season already, Ryan Kesler finally pulled off his first career hattie last night, scoring all 3 Canucks goals in a 3-2 overtime win over the Blue Jackets. Roberto Luongo had a pretty strong game (it's always good when his play flies under the radar in a win), and the Swedes picked up all the assists, with Alexander Edler also having a solid game. One thing that needs attention is the powerplay: it's obvious we're missing Christian Ehrhoff on the point. According to reports from vancitydan last night, though, he could be back soon....
