Can the Canucks get two wins in a row?

So....where were we? Ah yes, the Canucks finally won a game and keep their gloves on a wildcard spot while watching Vegas and Edmonton get farther away. (I know it doesn’t seem possible, but bear with me.)

The Canucks capability to play a free-wheeling open style that creates a lot of chances and can lead to lots of goals. Unfortunately, they have the terrible habit of forgetting this and try to play “defensively” and then lose 3 goal leads to Columbus.

Speaking of Columbus, they arrive in Vancouver holding onto a wildcard spot in the east and some writer at their SBN site, The Cannon, is writing somewhat less witty banter. I’m sure they can feel the pressure we feel, but not the same as the Blue Jackets made the freakin’ playoffs last year.

That third line last game was on fire and that’s what the team is going to need to win some of these big March games. So let’s cheer for another win.

Go Canucks Go!
