This game was the reason why we needed to win against the Canadiens on tuesday. This is going to be a very tough game against a good team.
I liked what Wolski showed in his first game. Had two pretty good chances to score in the game. One in the 1st on a one-timer from gaborik. Other one was obviously in the 3rd from a tough angle on a rebound in which he hit the post. I think you have to keep in mind he had just traveled here the day of the game and arrived only a few hours before it. I'd like to see how he does after getting some rest and adjusting to the time zone switch (even though I know professional athletes are constantly changing time zones) and his new surroundings.
Errata to the Canucks' starting lineup: Aaron Rome is in for Andrew Alberts for reasons unknown to anyone except Alain Vigneault.
And yes, they played like crap on Long Island. Which Canucks team will show up at MSG tomorrow? The powerhouse on top of the NHL, or the downers abusers who stood around watching helplessly as the Islanders threw the puck around? Your guess is as good as ours.
I'm assuming the rest of the league has realized we make their scrubby back up goalies look like all stars and using games against us not only to rest their starters but to get a win as well.
You obviously have not been following the western teams' progress...Schneider is as good if not better than Luongo. When he plays the Canucks really ramp up the scoring...it will not be as easy as you think it may be!
