Did I hear the Canucks' power play is 3 for 18? Oof! It doesn't look that impressive does it? Lots of play to the outside, not enough shots getting through, missed rebounds. Of course, the main issue remains that the majority of the forwards are mired in scoring slumps (see the hot/cold below). Like I said before, the team isn't going to win many games as long as this goes on.
The Canucks have had great success against the Flames this year, winning both meetings and outscoring them 10-3. Mason Raymond has 3 goals and 2 assists against them. Maybe Calgary can provide a kick start for some of our slumpers. Assume nothing though.
