Canucks 0 Bruins 2

It would have been easy to blame last night's 2-0 loss to the Boston Bruins on Dany Sabourin, who let in two early powerplay goals. The fact is, however, Sabourin wasn't too bad after that. (Of course, the Bruins only took nine shots in the final 48 minutes of the game, but I digress.)

No, what you need to know about last night's game can be summarized succintly by a quote from John Garrett. He said it after Matt Cooke failed to score on a breakaway, but I thought it summed up the rest of the team perfectly:

"(Cooke) has to get it up if he wants to score."
So true. (And y'all get your minds out of the gutter.)

About the game around the blogosphere

  • Waiting For Stanley is giving Jan Bulis some slack, and deservedly so. Even as a noted Bulis-basher, I have to agree that his play is much better these days.
  • Jaci of Wicked Bruins Fan was at the game and will hopefully put up a nice recap from the Boston side of things.

My 3 Stars of the Game

  1. Patrice Bergeron (BOS): On a hot streak recently and chipped in with another goal last night. Logged 24:38 minutes of ice-time, more than any other forward on both teams.
  2. Tim Thomas (BOS): Stopped all 39 Canucks shots.
  3. Mattias Ohlund (VAN): The defense did what they were supposed to do. Oliie led them with more than 26 minutes of ice-time.
