My only complain besides the obvious is AV not calling a timeout.

Not worried. Howard isn't playing well. We can answer back.

Still 20 left. Only down 2. I'm not worried. And they start with a pp. the canucks are being singled out and they are going to win in spite of this horse crap. And again Millard needs to be taken off canucks broadcasts.

I like Lu, but that was classic of him; go down and hope it hits him.

This clearly. Kesler just fell with the slightest touch there, refs could have called both or just decided not to when seeing it was Kesler.

Detroit's PP is not bad.

Terrible PK'ing by the Canucks today. Deflections and missed coverages all over the place. The one PP they do get, they can't hold the zone. What a frustrating game to watch.

So the refs f up. Then they give Vancouver a penalty for complaining about ther f up Then if Gillis or Vigneault complain after they will be fined and the NHL will not admit any wrongdoing. So the refs have zero accountability. How do I get hat job?

Garrison's gaffe on the pass to Hamhuis on the PP... ugh. I want him to get minutes on there, but that's just brutal!

And the refs are interfering in this game a little too much. Let the teams play and don't give out bogus PPs

Ugh not a very good game. Everything is going against the Canucks. The officiating has been terrible. The defense is having a difficult game and Luongo hasn't been awful but he has been normal. Hopefully the third is a better period.

I swear. when his confidence starts to drop he tenses up and this is like his emergency move. It's so painful. Get him out of there AV.

I think we win this game, but who knows how it'll go when the refs are acting so unpredictably. There's a good chance they simply don't call any penalties at all in the third...

they used their timeout when Edle rand Garrison got trapped on for an outrageously long time.

Terrible officiating. Luongo has been terrible 7 goals against [2 were illegal] Lu has been god sent this year, but what's the point of having 2 star goalies when you keep the struggling goalie in net? It's defs doable to get back in this game.

Right, let's just ignore Garrison letting Brunner hold the puck and shift to the side as long as he wanted to. What the hell was Garrison doing flopping and turning his back to Brunner?

You're a joke.

Refs have been terrible this game. But hey we're playing the Wings in Detroit. What do you expect? Refs are always like this here.

Again, why did Luongo go down though?

Can still easily come back, but three issues so far:

1. The penalty kill sucks today. Three goals on three straight powerplays? Yikes.
2. The officiating blows. The PK is the reason the Nucks are down, but the officials seem as clueless as the penalty killers out there.
3. Luongo not on top of his game, wouldn't be surprised if Schneider starts the third. Hard to put a ton of blame on him when the team is so flat in front of him, but this is easily his worst game of the year thus far.
