Luongo hasn't been good today.

Having said that, why must we always find a singular person or thing to hang blame on? It's been a fire drill in the defensive zone, Luongo hasn't been sharp, our special teams has been bad, and the officiating has been horrible.

Add that up, and we need a big third period.

I'll be the first to admit I don't think Luongo is having a good game, but the lack of defensive awareness has been a recurring theme in this game.

My prediction is the refs skate onto the ice for the 3rd period wearing red wings jerseys.

You can blame the last two Detroit goals on the forwards as well.

Blaming one person is easier than 20.

Did Kassian say something to a ref for that penalty?

Exactly. There have been a host of problems today. Luongo has been one of them but hardly the biggest.

We have bigger problems tonight then Luongo's subpar play. Defense has been brutal

Kesler has been invisible on the road this year... zero impact on games.

Stop being so logical please.

Yeah, the hook Brunner was called on and the charge Tootoo was called on were pretty weak. It just seems like it's worse for you guys because you haven't capitalized on yours and we have.

Pretty sure it was a bench minor to AV. Kassian is our dedicated box sitter.

If the Canucks score a PP goal here, they won't get another PP even if DET shoots the puck over the glass

Well you can't be good in every game but seriously the NHL is a joke right now why did they even touch that stupid rule book. A official can't even do a job properly surprised they didn't call Datysuk's goal a goal. Hope the Canucks comeback and spoil Detroit's fun.

Why is he going down if he expected a shot to go through? The butterfly covers the bottom of the net.

Agree about the easier save selection. But this is a tendency of Luongo when having to move side to side. Not a good goal.

He's been okay, not like hes getting hung out to dry.

Kesler is a lot higher on my list of under performing players. Outside the pp he has been a detriment to this team

I said earlier the team just is not coming out skating and working putting forth a strong effort again, we are winning some games, but like last year, we cant head into playoffs with this work ethic.

AV should probably throw some familiarity out there: Edler/Tanev; Garrison/Ballard. Or that might throw them off even more...
