john garret is right. The amount of chances the canucks gave the hawks was disgusting.

What worries is me a lot is all the hype what with all the "we want to be the ones to break their streak".

IMO we didn't back up our words with our uninspired play. I hope the boys recognize that and improve next game.

Maybe I should find I way to go to the game on Thursday. The Canucks haven't lost a game I've attended since 2008. That has to mean something right?

Definitely didn't deserve a point tonight but we'll take it. Hope Hossa's alright.

Kes may be back but he is no where near close to mid season form.

Yep. We were lucky Schneider was soo good.

Great last few minutes, but the better team got the two points.

Sorry, I meant score in the shootout.
No I agree, our defense in regulation time is awful and it needs some serious work.

AV needs to get this team focused again. Disjointed and poor play over 200ft. Some have that has to do with CHI being on their game. But it's just such a departure from how they need to play.

It has certainly been a big part of what's making it so hard on the D.

On the topic of D, I thought Hamhuis was quietly the worst defenseman today. Horrible job moving the puck, very slow all around the ice, soft, doing absolutely nothing offensively. I could keep going...

That is what bothers me. For a game they were supposedly motivated for. This is the effort they bring? It's disgraceful. Our defense is so ridiculous inconsistent, it borders on comical.

This is intriguing question. They wilted under physical contact the moment the Canucks responded after those three breakaways. But with their speed and transition game, taking a run at a hawk means putting yourself out of position. It's a risky game any team can play with the Hawks. It worked well for a while, but then the Hawks began capitalizing on those odd-man chances.

In the playoffs though, that physical intensity is much more ramped up, so I'm not sure the Hawks could manage under sustained pressure. I'll never underestimate them though!

I hate Chicago. That being said, they're the best team in the league and the boys showed some cojones to come back.

He tries to replicate the move every time he goes down the ice. So, so annoying. If there's no room ****ing pass it to the trailing wingers.

How many odd man rushes? Jesus! defensively we were GARBAGE.

Hansen's "elbow" Got the Canuck haters out in force tonight.

Hate the slow speed shootout attempts


Where is Kassian? Knew it was coming but man I wish he would have been physical tonight.

Schneider was the only reason the game wasn't over before the 3rd...

That game could have EASILY been 8+ GA. The fact that they escaped with a point is nothing short of a miracle.

Absolutely shouldn't be. It should be beyond painfully obvious that Hansen was reaching for the puck and accidentally clipped Hossa in the head with his elbow.

He lost them last January and really hasn't gotten them back since. There have been stretches (i.e. start of this year) but htey are falling apart again. Constantly blowing leads, horrible defense, general laziness.
