God I hate the Canucks.
Typical end of the game diving and embellishing to get calls. It's like the Canucks think they are playing soccer.
Allen was great tonight. A number of huge saves. Can't really fault him on any of the 3 goals. He's looking better and better. Very composed, quick and his positioning is already light years better than in his first game.
Burrows can suck it. What a piece of shit he is...correction, always has been.
Oshie's shootout goal was sneaky smart. You could tell Luongo was expecting his traditional series of dekes and Osh completely caught him off guard snapping a quick shot 5 hole...Luongo never moved.
MacDonald's shootout goal was sick. The replay showed there wasn't much to shoot at up there, and he buried it. Game, set, 2 pts.
I was expecting at least one PP goal by the Blues tonight with how good they have been and with the Canuck PK struggling. But they didn't get many calls and only had a couple chances on the PP. Vancouver did a good job pressuring the puck and taking a lot of stuff away.
Poor start to the game, but the last 2 1/2 periods were much better...except for that massive offensive zone pressure the Canucks had that seemed to last for 5 minutes in the 3rd period. The Blues did good not to take a penalty during that push. Then the Blues go up 3-2 just a few minutes later. That was big.
Good win. We move into 4th place in the conference. Their play over the past few games has been noticeably better than the previous 5 where they struggled. They seem to be righting the ship.
Oh, and Detroit currently sits in 9th after blowing a 2-0 lead and losing to Minnesota tonight.
