I've seen a lot from Canucks teams over the years but very rarely have I seen a Canucks team like this, who falls down 1, 2 or 3 goals before making a comeback to win games. This Canucks team from Roberto Luongo-out seems disturbingly comfortable to do so on the road trip from hell. Again, when down 3-0 and 4-1 against the furious Avalanche team Vancouver, fueled by Mikael Samuelsson's hat trick and Alexandre Burrow's game winner did it again....which was to erase a 3-goal deficit to win.....and win the game in regulation.
You wait for it to blow up in their faces. You wait for a blow-out to happen to bring them back down to earth but it isn't happening.
-Samuelsson had 3 goals and 1 assist
- Henrick Sedin had 3 assists
-Daniel Sedin had 1 goal and 2 assists
-Ryan Kesler and Christian Ehrhoff each had 2 assists
It was enough to silent the already-quiet dismal Colorado crowd. The Duchene, Hejduk and Stewart line combined for 3 goals, 1 assist and 10 shots..so what?? They finished a +3 and nothing to show for it, except that the Canucks now hold a 4 point lead for the NW Division title.
And please, please please leave Hansen on the roster. How much more does he have to prove?
