>getting called in on a saturday while the canucks are playing one of the most interesting games of the year
oh no... no joe
I have a feeling this will be a blowout win for the Pens
the Andrea Bocelli story.... LOL good ****ing kid
We lose, in overtime, so literally nobody is happy. Its the Canuck way.
"His dietary staple, to the chagrin of those who surround him, is junk food.
''Hamburgers, french fries, pizza,'' said Lemieux, dipping the chicken wings in extra hot sauce.
''Not junk food. Fast food.''" - Kevin Dupont, New York Times, October 22, 1984
LEMIEUX IS LIVING UP TO HIS NAME AND NUMBER
"Not junk food. Fast food.''
Their winfographic didn't have any juicy stats
The return of the golden kid? Vancouver wins this with ease. Let the point streak continue!
Crosby is in great form! There should be artistic merit to enjoy.
Holy hell. 9-1? Hopefully that's not a harbinger of things to come for us on Saturday.
Get well soon, entire Canucks' roster!
Going against the grain (against whoeveryone thinksll win) 4-2 Canucks goals by Pettersson Boeser Horvat and Gaudette
penguins will be tired and all shagged out after a long squawk.
The "Everyone who is almost healthy is healthy" edition..
Leipsic - Horvat - Boeser
Goldobin - Pettersson - Eriksson
Roussell - Sutter - Virtanen
Schaller - Granlund - (Archibald/Motte)
Leipsic - way too many turnovers and falls down way too easy/much = obviously we saw it lead to the backbreaker last night. I think I would rather have Motte along side Horvat and Boeser... let him do some grunt work.. Even Roussel... then put Motte along side Sutter.
With the return Pettersson and Boeser... I think it makes Leipsic's "skill" expendable... would like to see:
Goldy - Pettersson - Eriksson
Motte - Horvat - Boeser
Roussel - Sutter - Virtanen
Schaller - Granlund - Archibald.
D is a messy mess..With Tanev also assumed healthy for this particular exercise:
Hutton - Gudbranson
Del Zotto - Tanev
Pouliot - Stecher
25 -Starter from here on out. No question about it for me.
Haven't we won 3 straight against the Penguins? They're due.
They have won 3 games in a row and have scored 18 goals in those wins.
I think it's time for them to chill the **** out.
The poll is great for extrapolating data.
One third of us get Simpsons references from the mid nineties, two thirds of us are too young/oblivious/pessimistic to, but we all agree that someone said "box kite".
Also get ready for this one. I don't know how well we match up with everyone in the line up, let alone with out Baertschi, Edler and potentially Pettersson, Boeser and Tanev. Plus did I see on the replays that Gudbranson and Sutter both got injured and played through? Yikes. Horvat is going to have to carry this team...
Pens toyed with Calgary and probably still nettled by Boeser's OT winner in their game with the Canucks at Pittsburgh. Not liking the optics of this game. But if the Canucks were to somehow pull out a win, they'd finish 7-5 overall in the most brutal portion of their schedule. Who'd have thunk it.
I've been impressed with the Canucks goaltending this season,so I'm not expecting a Mike Smith type meltdown...Hopefully,the Canucks have jump in their game (they did last night,but no puck luck),unlike the Caps game,where they looked gassed.
Penguins are a good team,and I'm sure that they will be out for revenge ....Canucks are a consensus bottom 10 team,so obviously expectations have to be held in check...Just hope its a good game.
I expect it to be close. Canucks don't give up much early. Should be more of the same.
They don't give up much but this is a game I wouldn't be surprised at all if Markstrom let in the early stinker again.
Don't know how reliable a source Corey Hirsch is but:

Honestly, if there is any question of their health, they should sit. Why risk our young players, or Tanevs trade value? What would be the point?
