CANUCKS GET FIRST WIN

New, comments
Though it took a shootout to finally decide the outcome, the Canucks prevailed with Roberto Luongo stopping Anaheim Duck shooter Bobby Ryan to get the win and end the drama.

The Canucks did have the better team on the ice and should have won easily, but Ilya Bryzgalov kept the Ducks in the game countless times.

The Canucks had Naslund playing with the Sedins, which worked well and Morrison lined up between Pyatt and Bulis. Both lines seemed to work and I'm expecting this might be what we get to open the season with.

There wasn't one fighting major assessed in this game, unlike the Canucks last game, which had WHL quality penalty stats. It may just be the first game of the entire NHL preseason that wasn't fight filled.
