Blackhawks 3 Canucks 0

Whatever the Canucks had against the Oilers on Tuesday night, well, they didn't have against the Chicago Blackhawks last night. They lost 3-0 to one of the worst teams in the Western Conference and its third-string goalie and blew a chance to take first place in the Northwest Division. The game was so boring that I actually tuned into American Idol for parts of it. Even Paula was more entertaining and I was really more a fan of the cat than of her back in the day. (We got shut out by the freakin' Hawks. Do you blame me?)

This stuff happens. I'm sure the emotional win against Edmonton only 24 hours before took a lot out of our boys in vintage blue. (Although God bless Kevin Bieksa for a great fight against Karl Stewart.) Unfortunately, stuff came at the worst possible time. This should have been a win, and after home losses to the Kings, the Blue Jackets, and now the Blackhawks, I'm seeing shades of last year's 0-4 record against St. Louis again. And we all know how that worked out for us.

Here's hoping that a couple of days rest does the team wonders.

About the game around the blogosphere

My 3 Stars of the Game

  1. Patrick Lalime (CHI): 34 saves and a shutout in his first start of the season
  2. Martin Havlat (CHI): Too bad he's injured a lot. He's actually quite a good player.
  3. Markus Naslund (VAN): Is it just me or is Markus looking better these days?

Yeah. Nazzy looked pretty awesome this game! I think he's the one who created the most scoring chances for the team... and there were a few plays where you just bang your head and think "if we only had a better winger than Cooke to bury that kind of plays from Nazzy"... but yeah. Naslund was flying tonight.

I thought Josh Green was intense as well.

rinslet - I hope that, if Nonis was going to make a move, that he gets another winger to play with Nazzy.

zanstrom - I agree. Josh Green actually looked good out there too.

Hi. I am a frustrated canucks fan living in france. It's impossible to see a game here. I have been searching for a way to see recent games online. I stumbled onto this blog with a post from november pointing to google vids.

48 hour delay no problem for me. But when I go to the site http://video.google.com/nhl.html which boasts "never miss an NHL game!" there are a few recent games in videos of the week but when I click on a team link the most recent games are from december!? I would love toeven be able to pay to see a game. I don't see that option. What is going on?
Please help!

^ I remember reading about the Google thing from another blogger recently. I can't remember who it was but I'll try to jog my memory and see if I can find the answer.
