Canucks 3 Sharks 2: By The Numbers

-After outshooting the Sharks 13-6 in the first period, the Canucks were outshot 28-13 in the final 2 periods.

-Hank, Dank and Bank recorded zero points and 7 shots. They were not much of a factor.

-Ryan Kesler scored a goal and an assist yet finished an even plus-minus. His 20:11 played was more than any other Canuck forward.

-Ryan Johnson scored the winning goal. That was his first tally in 89 games. Don't get me wrong, Balls is a character guy. But he now has 1 goal and 4 assists on the season. He had a 3 assist night in an 8-2 route of Colorado back on November 14. That means he has only recorded a point in 3 games this season. Just sayin'.

-Luongo. That was a money game by Lou, stopping 34 of 36 shots.

-As far as Canuck defencemen ice time goes, only Aaron Rome and Shane O'Brien played less minutes than Christian Ehrhoff (18:59).

Alexander Edler led the way with 23:48 played.


-Michael Grabner's 11:07 played can be attributed to him not seeing any time on special teams presumably.

-Canucks went 2 for 3 on the power play. The Sharks: 0 for 2.

-Thornton-Heatley-Marleau: all played over 20:00, scored no points, all were a -1 and combined for 5 shots.

-Dan Boyle is a freak: a threat nearly every time he was on the ice, no points, an even +/-, and 25:27 played, more than any player on the ice.

-Pavelski, Setoguchi and Clowe: 2 goals and 4 points combined, a combined +5, and 14 shots. Pavelski had 9 shots alone, by far more than anyone on the ice.
