Canucks Looked Good, But It Ain't Done Yet

As badly as the Canucks outshot the Kings, it didn't feel like the Canucks weren't making the most of their chances. This wasn't a matter of having a wide open net and shooting it wide. Jonathan Quick played pretty well for the Kings, and if it hadn't been for him, the game probably would have been over at the end of the second period. Sometimes you just roll up a goalie like that. You deal with it anyway you can, and hope it doesn't repeat in game 2.

Except for the lack of ability on the PK, and Andrew Alberts' tendency to PUT the Kings on the power play, there wasn't a whole lot lacking in the Canucks' game last night. Alex Edler played like a man possessed, and Roberto Luongo showed no signs of the struggles he's gone through the last few weeks. Of course, it'll take more than just one game to say that he's got his game back completely.

The Sedins showed no signs of slowing down from what they accomplished in the regular season, and what else can you say about Mikael Samuelsson? The guy scored two goals, and was out there hitting people, too. That's the kind of thing that some of the others could learn from, definitely. It was even great to see Alex Burrows yapping with Drew Doughty. Just because he didn't pick up a point doesn't mean that Burr was ineffective.

What else do the Canucks need to do? Work on the PK, obviously, but also not lose sight of the fact that if it hadn't been for a rather spectacular reach by a certain goalie-captain, this series would have been 1 - 0 in the other direction. The Kings might not be any division champions, but they're in this to win. There's nothing to be gained in taking any opponent lightly.

Just ask Ovie and the Capitals. :)

Yes, I agree that the Kings are a superior team and that the Nyucks can only win when they play dirty and don't get caught doing it. But when the Nyucks get caught and lose because of penalty goals, they start crying and playing the blame game. Whiners. Losers. Kings in 6.

The ignorance you have displayed is typical of LA Queens fans . You have no clue what the sport of hockey is. I suggest you refrain from straining the last 2 brain cells that you have , rub them together to make yourself a snack , sit back, relax and take a deep breath to realize your pathetic attempt at intelligent commentary is utterly futile .

Hi,

I concord that the Kings are a olympian aggroup and that the Nyucks can only win when they gambol illegible and don't get caught doing it. But when the Nyucks get caught and regress because of penalization goals, they vantage obvious and activity the criticise mettlesome.

Aquilini should sell team to someone who wants to build a winning team that plays with both and pride and heart. Gillis has to go for signing Luongo (aka) Cloutier to this contract; we have him for how long? (Nightmare) Now they cannot trade Schneider, so get rid of the always number 2 goalie on the ice, quickly. This team is like watching WWF on ice, FANS know, the FANS know.
