Can you imagine having two of the best players in the league and struggling to get into the top three in your division? The Canucks face that team tonight as the Center of the Universe carried itself out west. It’s amazing to see how that team with Matthews/Nylander/Marner have had a hard time being consistent.
I just re-read what I wrote above and unfortunately could apply the same argument to the Canucks. Inconsistency has been the word I have had stuck in my head this year when looking at this team. It’s just as true as calling this team mediocre. The last game against the Sabres was a microcosm of the entire year. Great start....fall asleep....wake and realize you might lose and sneak out a win.
Van comes into tonight’s game against COTU, having won 3 out of the last 4 against them in Vancouver. It should an entertaining fast-paced game. Both teams need a win to keep pace with the bubble.
Let’s try and not name them tonight. They suck.
