Canucks - Ducks Complete Shootout

No doubt about it: Canucks-Ducks games always bring the entertainment. The Canucks outshot the Ducks 40-20 and dictated much of the play. It's just those defensive lapses on the Ducks goals that are frustrating. The lack of execution from the offence for most of the game despite the shots. It's Roberto Luongo letting in the 1st goal of the game through the 5-hole on a shot he should have stopped. How about the Sedins looking predictable and Henrik refusing to shoot? 

A win is a win, right? Yeah I know. I just want the Canucks to be more crisp. I want to see more efforts like in the 3-0 win over Chicago. Ed Willes isn't impressed either. I hate to pee in your lemonade, but I just want to see a team that looks like it's a contender. This team does not look like that, even though...hell they have won 5 of 6.

A big tip of the ol' hat to Ryan Kesler and Jeff Tambellini in this one. They produced. Also to Kevin Bieksa who beat the holy hell out of Aaron Voros. And to end this on a happy note I'd like to quote marcness52, who was inspired by Luongo's poetry:

5 on 5
We somehow stayed alive
4 on 4
They did not score
And then Lou stopped the douche.
