I'll say this before I go to bed. I don't write often but trying to be more vocal on here lately, but i am on here reading it everyday. Anyways regarding the game...We didnt play our best hockey but give kudos to the ducks they defended home ice. Now it's our turn to defend home ice on Friday. I'll be coming to the game from Toronto with a few buddies, and I hope to see the Joe rockin and us giving the team all the support we can. We have a very bright future regardless of what happens this series. We had our chances today, obviously difference maker being that 5 min PP, if you want to call it a PP. On the last goal, anderson needs to tie his man up. Also, maybe just me, but i wasnt impressed with lashoff again. Too many mistakes etc. I would like to see Carlo out there game 6 in Lashoffs spot. I also Think Abby needs to be back in the lineup, and despite sammys coring we need him out and keep bert in. Bert and Nyquist have ben lookin great. Unsure if you want to break lines up but if not this year then next year nyquist needs to be a top 6 forward. Let's stay calm, keep faith, and be loud on Friday and help propell the wings to a win and force game 7. This year is a learning curve with all the young players, we need patience. I think we can pull it off Friday and game 7 anything can happen. We need to play like we did game 4 not game 5. Night boys and girls. Cheers!
The last call was pretty weak but do people really think that the Canucks somehow got screwed by the officials this series because of the Sharks diving? Both teams have done more than their fair share of diving this playoffs (and in their previous matchups).
The one goal from Brunner's defensive lapse was a snap decision to attempt to poke check it away. The shortside goal might have been stopped sure. The first goal on the PK when the defense failed to clean up the mess and it got popped up top shelf was absolutely no way Howards fault. The cross crease pass and the snap one timer will go in 99% of the time against any goalie regardless of who it is, that goal is not Howards fault. So maybe we lose 2-0 instead of 4-0. WE STILL LOSE. Sounds like an offensive problem to me.
