Gameday thread: Vancouver @ Columbus

I'm suprised no one had made one yet, so I guess I'll do the honours.

Gametime: 4:00 pm
TV: sportsnet, get to hear Jim Hughston's voice again..."great save Cloutier"
Radio: CKNW

I haven't heard what the line-up will look like since it seems Crow will change it every game, but I'm pretty sure Cloutier will get the start.

The Canucks had the best road record in the Western Conference last year with a 23-10-8 record, but will be facing an improved Columbus Blue Jacket team that added Sydor and Marchant during the off-season. It should be an interesting test for the Canuck team, as the BJ's will be excited with it be Columbus day, and were difficult little buggers to play last year. Of note, the Blue Jackets will reveal their new 3rd jersey's tonight.

Thoughts/predictions/comments on tonights game?

The canucks had a losing record against the jackets last year but, then agian, it was ray whitney that seemed to be the canuck-killer.

The jerseys look to much like the Team USA jerseys. They could've done without the stars on the sleeves IMO.

My prediction: 5-2 Canucks

Canucks goals by Naslund X 2, Daniel, Jovo and Morrison.

Jackets goals by Nash and Vyborny.

I'll say a 3-1 victory for the Canucks.

Columbus' offence busted out last game, but can't be counted on for 5 a night, Vancouver's team defence has been solid. Naslund is bound to score, and with the bad blood between these teams, the Jackets will take a few penalties and the Canucks should capatalize. Columbus always gives Vancouver fits, but withut Whitney things will be different, Arvedson/Linden/Cooke on Casssels and Sanderson and the game should be controlled by Vancouver.

Because of Columbus' scrappy nature when facing the Canucks, I'll say that the game will be tied 1-1 on goals by Naslund and Vyborny until about 6 minutes left in the third and Linden gets the game winner, Sami Salo adds an empty-netter.

Vancouver 4
Columbus 1

Goals by Naslund, Sopel, Keane, King.

Cloutier stands on his head, and our new "Goaltending Controversy" is who to start

Lindgren's apparently out with a bad back, so we can count on that... It's pretty certain that Malik and Ruutu will draw back in as well so... I agree with Keane being scratched, although he has already missed one game, but he adds less against a non-offensive team. I would also agree about Allen unless they're trying to get him playing a bunch early on, but I wouldn't scratch Slegr, and probably not Sopel... so I'm pretty much with you the whole way.

Isn't David Ling on Columbus? I admire that guy. He goes full out every shift. I can't see Ruutu getting scratched after his solid performance opening night. The real question mark is who is going to sit out on the blueline.

I will go out on a bit of a limb and predict a 7-3 drubbing by the Canucks.

Nash will get two goals for the BJ's while Bertuzzi will get a hat-trick and Danile Sedin will get two goals for the Canucks (with singles by Malik and King).

I just played Vancouver @ Columbus on ESPN NHL hockey for Xbox and this is how it turned out:

Vancouver 3 OT
Columbus 2

Scoring:
1st period:
Van :32 Markus Naslund (Morrison, Jovanovski)
Van 6:22 Brendan Morrison (Bertuzzi, Naslund)
Cbs 19:45 David Vyborny (Cassels, Sanderson)

2nd Period:
No scoring

3rd period:
Cbs: 16:57 David Vyborny (Cassels)

OT:
Van 3:33 Trevor Linden (Arvedson, Slegr)

Shots were 41 for Vancouver and 23 for Columbus I was sure that Denis was going to knock me off, but a knuckler for the blueline beat him in OT. It was a fun game and I hope the real game is as enjoyable. I am bored.

Vancouver 4 - Naslund, Daniel, Jovo and Mo

Columbus 1 - Sillinger


I have a feeling that the Canucks are just going to dominate this game. Clouts will play strong, while facing less than 20 shots....Denis will also be strong in facing 30+.....

It feels like the Sedin line will wrack up some points today. I think the Blue Jackets will be keying in on the top line, leaving the second line covered with less experienced players, and they shall pay for their indiscretion.

I think the Blue Jackets will be coming out very very hard and fast, but I also believe they are going to be suprised by the talent and effort the Canucks are now icing.

If Denis plays a great game, it could actually be a low scoring affair... but I don't think that's going to happen.

6-3 in the Canucks favor.

That sucks, I was hoping King would play another. I guess this is all part of Crawford trying to give everyone equal ice-time. I really don't see the point of dressing Keane for this one though, save him for the game against the Wings.

....well then.

6-0 Canucks....

Bertuzzi 3, D.Sedin 1, Arvedson 1, Sopel 1.

Who'll play with the twins then? Ruutu won't help much and i can't see our third line being torn apart already. Maybe chubarov even though he's a centre or Keane would be my best guess.
