Well that was some game, right? I haven’t watched it yet, but I’m looking forward to doing so. A rare Canucks shutout win - that takes some beating.
Goals for Baer and Bo, a nice penalty shot for Sutter, Reid Boucher joining from waivers...this team is on the up!
So let’s take a look at what people are saying around the league:
