  • Ryan Kesler's 'beast-mode' continued!
  • He had an 11-3 SCD. & 13 Corsi For (individual shot attempts).
  • Henrik Sedin had an 11-4 SCD.
  • His ability to create high quality SC's makes him the MVP on the team.
  • Jason Garrison had a 12-2 SCD versus the pitiful Sabres attack.
  • Cody Hodgson had an 7 -5 SCD, (2 -4 at even strength).
  • He had flashes of creative flair on the offense, but was also a liability on the defense.
  • Zack Kassain had a 3-0 SCD.
  • Zack played well but could produce more playing with with a playmaking center

Statistical Three Stars:

1. Ryan Kesler

2. Henrik Sedin

3.Roberto Luongo

  • Roberto got his 63rd career shutout (35th as a Canuck) stopping 10 SC's.
  • Luongo had a very quiet night. He faced only one flurry on a late Sabre PP.
  • Luongo continued to have difficulty with his rebound control
  • This tendency will prove more costly versus skilled team such as the Penguins.
