Let’s be honest with ourselves for a minute. No one called this type of start for the Canucks. After losing Petey, the mentality of “crap...now who will score” ran through our heads. And now this team has a chance to win four in a row...on the road.
I’ll take it!
Of course Winnipeg has other plans for us. And history hates this matchup for the Nucks. Winnipeg has won 9 out of the last 10 against Vancouver. The Jets seem to be the Kryptonite of this team. Winnipeg is big and fast with a good defensive core, finally some good goaltending and it can score.
So to continue the honesty, the Canucks should not win this game tonight. A 4-3 record after 7 games is pretty friggin good. But we will feel feel disappointed if they lose, won’t we?
Go Coconuts Go!
