Canucks Knock Off The Kings



I'm the first to admit that I get a little lax when it comes to covering the PPV games. I don't pay for them, and don't feel that I can offer as much just by watching the highlights and commenting on what Sportsnet chooses to show. But I have to admit to being a little pissed off hearing about the fact that people were actually booing when they heard that what was initially thought to be Kyle Wellwood's first goal of the season had been taken away and given to Tanner Glass. Look, I understand that people want Welly to get his first goal, but for God's sake, don't boo Glass because the on-ice officials made a mistake. Does it really matter who scored the damn goal? Wellwood wants to start scoring too, but do you think he'd whine about it? No. He wouldn't. At least he got his first goal later in the game, so now people can get over it.

The other thing I wanted to mention was the incredible goal line save Roberto Luongo made on Teddy Purcell, throwing his glove back to pull the puck off the line. There's no way that they could have called that a goal because there was no way to see the puck, seeing as how it was covered by the glove. Was the puck across the line? Possibly, but without proof, they couldn't have called it a goal. Only Luongo knows for sure.

From the reports I've heard, the first half of the first period would pretty much put you to sleep, but then the Canucks came out flying to leave the Kings in the dust in the third period. But it was good to see that Henrik Sedin hasn't slowed down since Daniel's return, and that putting Alex Burrows back on a line with the twins has paid off with him opening the scoring.

The Oilers and Sharks should make this an interesting weekend indeed. A couple of wins would get the Canucks right back into the playoff hunt. We'll see what happens.

The only other Canucks' bloggers with a recap of the game were Sean and Mike at 'Nucks Misconduct (and this is even with the Yankee Canuck partaking in the American Thanksgiving). So here's the link.
