Devils 0 Canucks 5

Across the country, Luke Richardson scored his first goal since the '05-'06 season. Over here, Aaron Miller scored his first in four years. And in what was supposed to be an epic battle between two of the best goalies in the world, one was true to form and got the shutout while the other had an off night and allowed five goals. Amazingly, the goalie that got the shutout was ours. Apparently, I should have bought a lottery ticket last night.

It was a great all-around game. Louie was back in net and made his presence known just 10 seconds into the game. Nazzy and the Sedins chipped in with seven points. Kesler not only shut down Zach Parise's line, but scored a great goal on a great second effort. Trevor Linden looked like he had a bit of a pep in his step and scored. And like I already mentioned, so did Aaron Miller (Tony Gallagher, Vancouver Province).

Miller couldn't remember his last goal, or at least that was his claim. Neither could he remember who he had scored it against as a member of the Avalanche, but when the name Sean Burke was mentioned it seemed to ring a distant gong.

"Look at me, Willie," he quipped to Mitchell. "The media is talking to me."

"That's what happens when you're a goal scorer," was the rejoinder, Mitchell already having scored his goal this year.
Remember the Canucks' woeful home record? I'm knocking on wood, but it looks like it's a thing of the past now. After a 1-5 start at home, they're 7-1-2 in their last ten games. Not only that, but they're not allowing many goals. In his last five games at GM Place, Louie has four shutouts. In the last month at home (six games), he's only allowed two goals: one against the Flames on November 18th and one against the Penguins on December 8th.

Helps that Luongo's playing so brilliantly at home! His 31 saves yesterday certainly helped set it up so that Nazzy and co could shine!
