In case you’re wondering... even if case there’s no case for wondering... the last time the Nucks beat Hellabuck was Mar. 2nd. A long time ago when Pete played for us and scored.
That was a wonderful game. Not only did Pete beat Hellabook with his EN, but the Nucks put up 2 goals to the Jets 5. Ok... it wasn’t that wonderful a game.
The last wonderful game the Nucks played against the Jets was Mar. 1st. That was a 4-0 WIN in Winningpeg. Read about it HERE.
Can’t read about it here.
Pepper Potted a goal to stop the Hellabucking SO streak at 165 minutes.

Zack Attack was awarded the takedown on 9’ tall Stanley.
And that concludes the consoling section of the recap.
THE STUPID FUGLING FEDLING
Nucks played a good 1st period with 5 chances. Applied pressure in the 2nd to trying to get the 1st goal with 7 chances.
Then the Nucks bench went full on Fedler. Took 2 consecutive Too Many Men penalties. And gave up 2 consecutive goals on the PK.
this is ridiculous
bench minors are things that shouldn’t happen in the major leagues, let alone multiple times per game — Raddy
Nucks are 2nd in league with 8 bench minors. So many records this year. Of the terrible kind.
Also... Nucks won the turnover service, 14-3. Ugh.
Also... gave Jet 3rd liner, Copp a hattie plus 1. Ugh.
We can’t score at all, but at least we can’t defend too. I’m out. — Twitchy
The worst Fedler of them all is... current Nucks roster is only able to win games when they give Demmer a chance to steal them. Even with a full healthy roster the winning, it no easy thing.
The Nucks are just not good enough to play in the North. Shoulda asked to play in the Mericas. Central American division.
Oh well... lose 3 in a row isn’t so bad. We’ve endured worse. But, there’s no going back to February.
But we can go back to the 2 Johns to relive the fugly. How nice.

We were lucky Bo was back. Coulda lost 5-0 without him.

Green didn’t like the Nucks PK. He’s not alone.
“I thought 5-on-5 we did a lot of good things. I didn’t like the 2 penalties we took for too many men and I didn’t like our penally kill.” - Travis Green#Canucks | @TheProvince pic.twitter.com/OXc394SVXL— Vancouver #Canucks (@Canucks) March 25, 2021
This February revival week is over. Thankfully. We and the Nucks get a week off for weak plans for weak trades. Or not. Let’s petition Franny for buyout funds. Big, big funds.
The season isn’t lost. It just looks lost like the Nucks in the 3rd. Or last 3 games. Or first 15 games. Or whatever.
At least we get a week away from kicking over our screens. Westy is scheduled to return next week with great goofing off stories to amuse - the Nucks D.
