Vancouver Canucks: Canadian Team. At least at night.
In Canada's hockey night they played all seven Canadian teams, the only Canucks won, after winning Calgary Flames 3-2, Saturday, Friday's Christmas Attraction.
Alex Edler has 3:06 in extra time, Brock Boeser has made a great pass to goalkeeper goalkeeper David Rittich, Calgary, to kick off a hot Canucks race 8-2-1. From October 4th. They have done better than the San Jose Sharks in the last 10 days of the Western Vancouver Conference, and Canucks's rumors follow the 1 to 10 year old National Hockey League, but obviously not.
Vancouver is still one point from the elimination point, mid-19-18-4.
Boeser and Elias Pettersson have won the first two goals of Canucksen, while each one is fired at a distant distance, and Mark Jankowski and Travis Hamonic briefly scored the goals of Flames.
However, the goalkeeper of Canucks, a real star of the game, Jacob Markstrom, made 31 jumping, many of which were difficult and Flames was a 14-km champion of 14-km Calgary, winning Vancouver 14-0. 12.25 first-rate brands.
Many of the most abominable hockey groups in Canucks were labeled the first trophies that were won at the beginning of this decade. They do not have the best team, but they like them a lot.
Here are some winning takeaways.
No cold Christmas
No one means three days away, the turkey with the family and Whistler's fast trip to Christmas. But, actually, the schedule was not very suitable for the Canucks team at a good pace and was the winner's winner.
On Thursday 4-2 win against Edmonton Oilers, Canucks defended his rivals in the second half, and won Saturday against Flames, especially spectacular.
Before Christmas this race was not an aberration. Markstrom continues his best NHL career, and Canucks continues to manufacture stunning goals. In the average season of three matches, Daniel and Henrik Sedin retired and continues to defend the team. 40 minutes passed.
On the Canucks road, New Jersey Devils continues against New Year's Eve, before visiting Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto. The Canadian team has the opportunity to spend a few days.
It's Pettersson's world
Hockey Night's Canadian panelist and insider Elliotte Friedman planned for Canucks's playoffs, taking into account the Hart Trophy substitute by Elias Pettersson.
For at least 20 years in Sweden, at least, they are at least a couple of years old – and according to Canucks. The most important honor of NHL is seriously challenged, but we understand Friedman's point. Pettersson will receive some MVP votes in April when Canucks holds the Stanley Cup tournament.
In a West Coast group, Pacific Time zone has not been warned, Pettersson can not miss it. You will notice every night. You know, depending on the opposition, whenever it is ice.
He entered two goals with two goals on Saturday morning, 2-2, on the following day, at 11:37 p.m., with a wrist strap from David Rittich's right wing. On the left, when Pettersson scored his first NHL goal, Flames was almost the opposite position of the season.
But Pettersson won much more than the points. The play was epicenter all night long, both in offensive and defensive areas. His most important second contribution was to defend more than two hours in T.J. to block Brodie decided to use a 4-4-2 set up. The Wired center also attended physically, recording three hits and releasing Dillon Dube once more into Flames's rookies at the bars.
In addition, he took a number as Sam Bennett was dangerous as he was running in open ice, tightly tied to the knees of the Canucks.
Pettersson is not wearing dressed or is becoming more effective. They seem better.
It is not often won to overcome two short goals. Two Flames shorties opposed Vancouver's second power unit. And Markus Granlund was one of the two major keyframes, Markus Granlund, who had thrown the square of the ice rink by Josh Leivori, who had brought him to Calgary, and later went to the Flames area, another way.
It's not a touch of gold
One of the most interesting players was the Canucks Nikolay Goldobin's unprecedented second leg. The Russians pushed the puck back, slammed the stick and shot it between his legs. Reasonable? Maybe not. Defensible? Completely
What good is all the talent and the offensive, if you do not download it for a while? Goldobin saved Rittiche. And Canuck scored one goal in his last 16 games, so what should he lose?
Well, Goldobin had a new coach with Travis Green four more times in the last 27 minutes and at 9:53 p.m. he had just finished the ice. The sole line-up of the fourth line was Tyler Motte less than 9:08.
At least the Canadian has received a prize for the Grand Prize for Adam Gaudette. After two and a half months he returned to the little Utica. He is 22 years old at the NHL to renew his musical cars before he was called on the NHL on October 15.
That way, thanks to ice ice, he won the winner of Hobey Baker in the 31st season of 2012, but he scored two goals and six points.
Gaudette will play special teams with Comets, almost doubling at the NHL 10:09 in the average ice season and building it as an offensive trust in his game. Sven Baertschi was heartfelt for more than two months, Gaudette continued to pursue.
Canucks decided that Tim Schaller was depressing, as will Brandon Sutter's shoulder Sutter approach a shoulder injury soon. The ice of Gaudette was about eight minutes in the last four games. Except Gaudette, he is in the first season of hockey testing and must play. If he is well-versed in the American League, Vancouver will probably be back this season. And until he got a sweet ride.
His first match, on October 24, was won by Vegas Golden Knight when he hit behind Tomas Hyká. Baertschi helped Boeser at the start of his initial power and made three shots at 12:35 in ice.
