I missed this one and now I regret it immensely. The Canucks opened a can of whoop ass on Phoenix in preseason action on Monday night. Here are the highlights:
For the record:
-a goal and an assist for Yannick Weber
-a goal and an assist for Jannik Hansen
-2 assists by Bo Horvat
-Mike Santorelli is the shiz. Welcome to the 3rd line center role, sir!
-Tom Sestito scored? Hell hath frozen over! Flukey goal.....get him outta there!
The Canucks assigned 4 more players to Utica on Monday: Joe Cannata, Benn Ferriero, Yann Save and Patrick Mullen. By the looks of those moves, Frankie Corrado and Andrew Alberts are the depth defencemen. Also, the battle for the backup goaltender slot continues, even though we now it's Eddie Lack's job to lose, right?
Here is the complete media scrum post game, including interviews with Horvat, Luongo, Torts and more:
