Gamethread #40: Canucks vs Leafs

Canucks still looking for ways to win against the Leafs

NHL: Toronto Maple Leafs at Vancouver Canucks Bob Frid-USA TODAY Sports

Not sure how you beat the outcome of the last game, but that’s the goal for this Canucks team. There seem to be some teams that the Canucks have matched up well against this year and they are both from Ontario. Maybe I should walk that back a bit. The Canuck goalies have kept their team in the game until the Canucks have been able to score. Holtby was fantastic last game.

We now get to see if 48 hours is enough time for their bodies to recover and find enough energy to play a 60 minute game. At least we don’t have to worry about Edler taking a stupid penalty for the next two games. The make shift defense did well as players just need to focus on trying to control the speed of the Leafs and clearing out the front of the net. The Leafs will make defensive mistakes and the Canucks need to capitalize on those.

Let us not talk of playoffs tonight. Let us talk of more consistent play and a PP that needs to appear. Let us talk of a healthy Petey for next year. Let us talk about the Leafs losing in the first round of the playoffs no matter who they play.

Go Canucks Go!
