OK, So The Canucks CAN Score

I hope you all got to watch that game last night. The Canucks answered their critics by demolishing the Avalanche 8-2 in front of their own fans. What a game. The Canucks continued the effort that they showed in the loss to Detroit, except this time they made life hell for Craig Anderson (who was pulled) and Peter Budaj. They held a meeting after the Wings game and mentioned that they had to get more traffic in front of the opposing netminder. Well done!

-Only 2 Canucks forwards had no points: Kyle Wellwood and Rick Rypien.

-3 defencemen had no points: Christian Ehrhoff, Willie Mitchell and Sami Salo

-Ryan Johnson, who had 7 assists last year, tallied 3 against the Avs.

-Henrik Sedin scored his first hat trick in 667 games played.

-8 Canucks had multi-point games. Steve Bernier's hand got softer, as he scored 2 goals.

-Legendary Canuck-killer Milan Hejduk played over 17:00, had zero points and 2 shots. Suck it, Milan.

-Welcome back to the NHL, Tom Preissing! How's that -4 treating ya?

-Colorado outshot the Canucks 34-30, including 16-8 in the 3rd. The Canucks scored 4 goals on those 8 shots.

-The Canucks' power play went 1-for-6

-I may or may not have gotten drunk due to celebrating.
