Gamethread #41: Canucks vs Lightning

The Canucks look for their first win of this roadtrip in Tampa Bay.

Bon Jovi might have said it best about the Canucks, “Woah, we’re half way there...woah, livin’ on a prayer.”

I hate Bon Jovi.

I also hate the way the Canucks are playing, but it doesn’t surprise me anymore. Fool me once...shame on you...Fool me 687 times....it was the booze. Both Kent and I agree that this team needs to hit the nuclear option, but we probably disagree on what the moves should be.

The Canucks go into S.W. Florida today to face a Ligntning team that will make the playoffs again and hopefully knock out Toronto in the first round. This Jon Cooper coached team has been consistently good for almost a decade and haven’t lost to the Canucks since 2018.

Is there any reason to think today will be different?

In fact, I will just post my prediction right here...4-1 Lightning.

This might just be the 0-5 roadtrip that #teamtank has dreamed of. I won’t openly cheer against the Canucks. In fact, I look forward to the upcoming 7-0-0 streak that the team will go on...in March.....when they have no chance to make the playoffs.

Go Canucks Go!
