The defence was great tonight and PK won us the game, so solid right in front of Luongo.

Top line was buzzing, created plenty of good chances against the stingy Predator defensive system which was nice to see. Our 2nd line wasn't really very good apart from a few chances off the rush. Schroeder and Raymond created shots and chances on just about every shift they've played together and obviously our 4th line won us the game. First star has to be Lapierre, he was flying all night, gets a great assist and wasted a solid 30 seconds of PP time at the end of the game with some great forechecking against 3 Predators.

Luongo is proving why he should be this team's starter. It's not even close anymore who this team's better goaltender is, say what you want about Schneider having good stats last season, Luongo is blowing those numbers out of the water. 5-0-3 with 2 shutouts and a GAA of what will be below 1.50 with a rediculous save percentage. He had a couple of high quality chances in this one and stoned them all, we're watching Luongo play better than he ever has in his career and it's fun to watch.

The defense really strapped down when Bieksa got injured.
Shows how good we are when we need to be.

Overall good game, I didn't see the first period so I can't comment on that.


Hmm, that's really odd.

"What players need is the right kind of strength and power. That includes learning to understand that leverage and positioning can be just as important as raw strength when it comes to winning battles in the game. It's more about timing and athleticism --and avoiding injury--than it is about how much you can bench press. I don't know how many times I've seen a guy with the physique of a defensive end line up a guy half his size, only to bounce off when he connects. Sure, there is room in the game for big guys who can throw their weight around. But for the most part, players are smart enough to see them coming--and strong enough to protect the puck when they arrive. There are trainers out there who know how to devlop hockey-specific strength--though a trainer can help only if a player follows the program. All too often, I've seen players sign up with the best trainer, but not show up for their workouts and never to reap the benefits."

Most boring game ever! How does Nashville sell tickets?


It's called winning good or ugly. It's better than losing.

They have the the most tenured coach in the league and the franchise has a good thing going. Too bad all of them weren't like this.

Are you drunk, I love Lou but that was the epitomy of sleeping your way to a SO. He made good saves but it wasn't a high revved game?

Edit: We play Sun, Tuesday, and not until Sat, Sun back to back next week. Does that change things?

Luongo posts a shutout and people still find a way to knock him saying "he wasn't that busy" or he snoozed his way to the SO"

Regardless of what people say Luongo has been the most consistent Canuck this season and arguably the best goaltender in the League this season

Yeah, sometimes you need something to make you focus on what you have to do. We need to have that every game.

Don't worry, Schneider fans will be whiny that Luongo got a shootout. They'll try to ignore the fact he was the only person playing in the entire first period and say he had the easiest shutout ever because the canucks started to play good after he carried them while they got up to speed.

I liked the part where Nashville just started dropping their sticks and CDC got mad at Burrows. That was fun.

Also, Nashville's trap game is a cancerous ulcer on hockey.


As much as it pains me, I have to agree with the bolded statement above.

Watching Nashville play for the 1 point and a 0-0 tie and take their chances in OT/SO, illustrates the need for the league to start awarding an extra point for a regulation win.

Don't see how people think Lu did so well. He's being sheltered against weak teams. Nashville's offence is one of the worst in the league. If they didn't have Rinne they would be battling for Mackinnon/Jones.

Yeah - a shutout is not good enough. We want negative goals for the other team.

I like both goalies but lean towards Cory as the long-term solution for the Nucks. Having said that, the only reason the Nucks got a sniff at this win was because of Lu. It could easily have been 4-0 ofter the first. Anyone putting him down or belittling his contribution tonight is not a real Nucks fan. He won one for the team and deserves the accolades.

Yeah, it's obvious to anyone who likes intelligence and fairness, but Bettman's selling parity right now. Great for league revenue too. Pretty hard to move up or down in the standings when everyone gets points every game.
