More of the same. No goaltending.
For the first time in ages, I agree with AV. This team did play well tonight. I think they actually outchanced their opponent - which would mark the 1st time all season they outchanced their opponent in consecutive games. Oh looky, they lost both of them easily.
I thought this goalie tandem would be this teams best asset this year. Boy was I wrong. It's been their albatross. A black hole. The abyss. They both have welllllllll below league avg EV SV%. Hiller, Bishop, Bernier, Holtby, Garon, Reimer, Miller, Scrivens are a few of the "what the hell" goalies with better EV SV% than either Canucks goalie. No excuses. It's pathetic. The Canucks D have lowered the scoring chances against to a point it's well below league avg on most nights. Yet their goalies can't stop a beach ball.
Yes, this team needs to score more goals. No doubt about it. But no team is going to score 4 goals every night to win hockey games. Someone needs to sit down both goalies and let them know how much they make - and what's expected of them.
It's easy to blame the goaltenders, but Nashville game aside the Canucks are scoring 2 goals a game or less : not good enough.
It's nice they finally got a PP goal, but it was the only goal they scored tonight. Power play is still crap, and Vancouver didn't look very dangerous on many of their scoring 'chances'.
The Canucks look uninspired and lazy, and they say they are trying hard, but they aren't making anything happen.
