Let's hope the last spanking is not forgotten... Keep 'er rolling on home ice. Uhh, must win?
I'm actually kinda worried about this game, as St. Louis still might want even more revenge and get excited to beat the Canucks again. In addition the Canucks abysmal record vs. the Central Division.
we are due to win a game against a shitty team. I wonder if andy murry will cry after we beat them
I don't think they are playing poorly at all. The large majority of play has been in St Louis's zone. The main concerns moving forward in this game is 1) stupid penalties and 2) lack of finish.
They showed up tonight. They are playing like they give a shit so that is a good thing. However, we just made perennial Average Joe goalie Ty Conklin look like a Vezina candidate in that period. Need to start burying more chances like Shane "Maurice Richard" O'Brien!
God damn Backes...
Ugh. This is going to be 7 -1
What a (Frank) fail. Until this team can beat these shitty teams, we are going NOWHERE.
Well, that's probably game over. This game just reeks of a loss.
Unbelievable. After a strong first period, the Nucks just stop playing. No effort at all. Bieksa just lets Backes go right past him, and don't get me started on Luongo on that third goal. (Frank) pathetic. When is the next time we play a shitty team?
We will own the third period, score with about 5 minutes left, but will fail to tie it. Backes with the empty netter for the hat trick.
This is what drives me crazy. Bowness is talking about how the Canucks struggled because they aren't respecting the Blues. Well, here is the million dollar question. Why are we not respecting the Blues? Or the Ducks? Or the Canes? Why are we not respecting the weak teams in this league?
That was a goal, no way around it. No kicking motion AND off of Jackman.
Jackman with a no glove sucker punch, drawing blood.
Just a 2 minute minor? Wtf...
The thing is, this is a terrible goalie we are facing tonight. But we still can't even get chances.
A chance to squeak into the top 8 against a struggling team and down 3-1 with 8 minutes left, all they've managed is 4 shots on net...and that's with two power plays.
Ty (Frank) Konklin
Blues are trapping. What a terrible team to watch.
I can't tell who has the better 'stone-hands', is it Steve Bernier or Ryan Johnson.
Team didn't all show up at the right time, some plays looked good while others were leaving you speechless. St. Louis sure blocked a lot of shots from the point, they deserved the win tonight.
At the end of the day we outshot them, outchanced them and outplayed them for 2 periods but at the end of the day we generated very few grade A scoring chances, looked very tentative in all three zones and seemed content playing on the perimeter.
Third Blues goal was an ugly bounce off the boards, but Boyes and Walt's kid beat Salo and Mitchel. Willie, that pass from Boyes should not have been played by Walt's kid.
Did not see much of the first half of the game but the Blues went hard to the net all night from what I did see. The D just didn't handle them well. Blues got the bounces but they worked hard for them.
Disgreed with the call on the Burrows denied goal.
RJ unconfident? No, he has no skills. That drop pass was excellent and most top midget players would have had no trouble taking it. Instead, Johnson bumbled and fumbled it and then stumbled and tumbled on to the ice. He looked like a beer leaguer on that play. He's pretty much useless other than as an often out of position back-board.
Blues had all the puck luck as well. They Get 2 goals of strange bounces, and we have the Burrows goal disallowed and then Bernier ripps one off of the shaft of the goalies stick.
Thats a 4 goal swing and it would be difficult for any team to win under those circumstances.
