So while the Canucks get an optional practice today, the rest of us have to sit here with the awful taste in our mouth from last night. Sort of like when you have a tequila shot with no chaser...no lime, no nothing. That assy taste. And the smell? Just like they said in Anchorman: "...it smells like, like a used diaper... filled with... Indian food."
How else are you supposed to react to the following numbers:
- Kings are 1st on the PP, Canucks are 9th
- Kings are 8th on the PK, Canucks are 16th
- Kings PIMs = 3rd (8.7 mins per game), Canucks PIMS = 12th (13 mins per game)
- Quick's GAA = 9th (2.45), Luongo's GAA = 13th (3.20)
- Quicks Save % = 6th (.918), Luongo's Save % = 16th (.880)
It's not all bad. Sammy is scoring seemingly at will and Hank and Kes got that faceoff thing down. More from last night can be found over at the Copper & Blue who have been tracking the scoring chances in each game.
But who are we kidding: the stage is set for the biggest game of the Canucks season tomorrow.
Now, they could certainly do a number of things differently (including find yet another healthy body on defense) or just stick to the gameplan and see if they can knot the series at two before heading home. So let's do Vigneault's job perhaps for him: you fix the Canucks. What would you change heading into tomorrow? The goalies (hahaha...wait, what?), Baumer over Alberts, Demitra on the PP, Wellwood playing at all, etc. What modifications (if any) do you think AV needs to make to ensure they head home with a fighting chance?
But you can't say chuck a trident. That's mine. Alllll mine. Smarmy King bastards will never know what him 'em.
