Gamethread #4: Canucks vs Lightning

Looking for a road win!

NHL: Vancouver Canucks at Tampa Bay Lightning
Can we win this game?
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Canucks left Carolina with another road loss and to be honest, it should have been worse. There was not a time that the Canucks controlled the pace of the game at even strength. Do we have a top line? Is it where Bo is....or Elias? When Alex Edler is the 2nd leading scorer behind a rookie, we might have a problem. On the bright side, we haven’t seen a 2-1 game yet!

The Lightning have only played one game so far and it was a 2-1 win over Florida. Tampa is still a stacked team and it should get Tyler Johnson back in the lineup tonight after missing the first game with an upper body injury.

if I were Travis Green tonight, I would demote Brock Boeser to the 4th line. Demoting Sven worked last game, so why not. Green hit speed ten on the line blender last game so it wouldn’t surprise me to see a variety of lines if the Canucks let the first shot in ....again.

A win tonight and the Canucks are .500 after 4 games. Parade routes plans will be forthcoming.

Go Coconuts go!
