The Canucks have a bad habit of giving up momentum by riling up the other team.

At 3-1 they didn't need to fight the Stars players. All that did was give them something to rally around.

They just need to stick to their game, and not get involved in that stuff. I'd rather not watch 3 crappy fights and get the two points. The stars were pumped up after those fights, and played much harder. We should have just lulled them to sleep with boring play instead.

I think the crowd after Hank's goal got the players too pumped up and they all wanted to do something. :lol:

Bieksa took some gambles and got burned on them. Probably one of his worst games of the season. But it's only one game.
I'm more concerned about Edler. The poor guy looks totally out of sync with the defensive side of the game. I don't know if it's a simple matter that both Bieksa and Edler are trying too hard to generate offense or what.

Keep things simple, work on the defensive side of the game, and the offense will come later. I don't think Garrison is as bad as others are making out. Tanev and Ballard are both more effective than I'd thought they'd be. Tanev is running into mistakes, but for a young player he's remarkably poised, and recovers from them real well.

I think the Canucks need to get back to basics. Look for the ugly goals, instead of the highlight reel goals. If they can play like they did the first part of the first period they can be unstoppable. Keep the plays simple, keep the puck in the opponents end, and make sure the defense knows when to pinch in, and make sure a forward gets back to cover in case the play goes sideways.

We weren't going to win every game this year. But it stings when you let the game slip away from you like that.
