Canucks 6 Sharks 1: Domination!

Edit: Sean meant six goals for Vancouver. He was just overwhelmed they scored more than three ;)

For the second straight game the Canucks out-worked their opponent and soundly beat them. Yankee, I have to ask...where in the hell was this effort from the Canucks last weekend? It wasn't there, and now it is.

  • Keith Ballard scored a goal on his birthday
  • Mikael Samuelsson scored 2 goals in a bottom 6 role and received over 18:00 of ice time.
  • 1 goal and 2 assists for the Sedins and Burrows
  • 12 Canucks registered at least a point, relieving the top line a lot.
  • Roberto Luongo exposed his 5 hole on the Dany Heatley goal and then shut the door for the rest of the night.
  • Christian Ehrhoff and Samuelsson led the Canucks with a +3 rating.
  • Samuelsson, Alexandre Burrows, Raffi Torres and Jeff Tambellini each had 4 shots.
  • Kent Huskins and Patrick Marleau each were a -4.
  • Christian Ehrhoff and Alexander Edler led all players with time on ice with 23:00 and 22:15 respectively.
  • Each team took 1 minor penalty. No PP goals scored..meaning the Canucks' 5 on 5 just got better...AGAIN
  • The current lines that AV has in place are money (even though he juggled them a bit). Woa! But how about that Hansen pass to Torres for the winning goal? Yeah baby! 
  • This win puts the Canucks in sole possession of 1st place in the Northwest
  • I can't remember the last time the Canucks beat the Sharks this badly. Ahaha, and I'm not even going to check either!
  • Here's the highlights:

    I thought Dan Hamhuis looked a little shaky in his past couple games but not tonight. He had 1 assists PLUS......

    Eat it, Douglas. Didn't see him pushing our guys around much after that! Hammer time!
