It seems to be all about Cody Hodgson tonight. All eyes will be on him as he faces continual pressure and now gets a spot on the top line and will get power play time. So just to add to that pressure, I will give a brief period-by-period analysis of CoHo's performance. Feel free to hang out and chime in.

Period 3 & OT & Shootout

Goals: 0

Assists: 0

PIM: 0

Assessment: Continual fail. The Canucks came back  to win in the shootout. Hodgson was not one of the 3 Nuck players selected in the shootout. He didn't earn it. He was outshined by several players tonight: Grabner, Raymond, Hansen...Great game by Hansen and Raymond. It will be interesting to read the media's take on Hodgson's play tomorrow.

 

Period 2

Goals: 0

Assists: 0

PIM: 0

Assessment: Hodgson and the team are stinking up the joint tonight. There's no gel there or anywhere. Hodgson is playing with Kesler and Raymond. It isn't translating into anything.

Period 1

Goals: 0

Assists: 0

PIM: 0

Assessment: I think every other Canucks line outshined the top line in Period 1. Hodgson did miss a glorious chance with 1:00 left. Was that him coughing the puck up in his own zone as well? No chemistry with Burrows and Kesler yet.
