Man...I can't recall the last time we had a game that exciting against Nashville of all teams. The second, third, OT and the shootout were flipping amazing hockey to watch. What a game.
Luongo rebounded from a stinky game-tying goal to really keep the team in it. That leg save while the Canucks were shorthanded was astounding, and he was great in the shootout once again. That's going to take some getting-used to.
Byron Bitz with a pretty damn solid game. I was more impressed with his behind-the-back pass to Daniel on the 3rd goal than I was with his own, actually - showed nice hands. But there were other times where he looked a bit fatigued; to be expected when he's playing his first few NHL games in years, and this was a fast-paced game. (again...surprising)
Still not the greatest effort from the team, but I think this was a marked improvement. Nice to see Henrik get a multi-point game, especially after returning from that scary shot block early in the game. Yikes.
Burrows is money in the shootout...couldn't believe it when Daniel and Hodgson hit back to back posts. But thankfully, Edler and Luongo saved the day!
Of all the line movements, I was hoping AV would move Cody up with Kesler and either Burr/D.Sedin or Booth. Just to see what'd it be like to have Cody dish some stuff to Kes for a change and see the rookie's movement on the second pairing. With both Manny and Lappy we our weird slump/win streak AV should feel free to experiment in the games like this.
