Good special teams builds confidence and wins games in this league.

Oops...

I mean, I hope we lose and this team is terrible. Jones! Fire AV!

They rank 10th in 5 on 5 GF/GA ratio (1.15). Leaders are CHI at 1.45 per. Advanced stats wise, they rank 5th in Fenwick and 3rd in raw Corsi %. So 5 on 5 has been solid to good.

Special teams is the problem, as you mentioned. They should still fire AV though

Sedins with Kassian and then Edler and/or Garrison on the first unit. Park Kass in front and just start putting pucks on net. Enough with looking for the perfect play.

Second unit should be Raymond - Higgins - Booth with Hamhuis and one of Edler/Garrison on the point.
Agree. I believe AV tried it a few times last game, would like to see it again.

One more edit to the OP, actually. @vancanucks just tweeted AV's defense pairings for the game.

Enjoy.

...Or not.

I can't believe he's going to use Ebbett in top 6 role after it clearly didn't work last time.

Here's my reaction GIF since I guess we are doing that:

since I already knew Barker was in for Ballard, I like what AV did with the pairings. I like Edler with Tanev

If we don't take a penalty or let in a goal in the first 5 minutes, I'll be happy.

If ballard is healthy i would love to know what game they watched last week, alberts was dreadful, i counted 2 turnovers by him alone in the game last game.
