Canucks Post-Game #Sixpack - Miller Melts Under Spotlight

Dec 19 2017, 9:05 pm

The Canucks continued their 7 game Eastern road trip with a disappointing 5-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. It is not so much that the Canucks lost, but how they lost. Let’s just say that Ryan Miller’s play didn’t exactly squash the Eddie Lack supporters.

1. Goalie Controversy?

Disco Stu (@StuElmes) hits the nail on the head with this tweet. Then follows it up with another gem. When you are right Stu, you are really right!

2. Jonathan Bernier Blunders Off Ice

Seriously? Evidently Jonathan Bernier was completely clueless about Nelson Mandela at a Nelson Mandela event, no less, last night. Ridiculous and embarrassing! Nevertheless, Bernier was anything, but clueless against the Canucks tonight with a 44 save performance.

3. No Quit In Canucks

The Maple Leafs really had no business being up in this game the way they were, but the Canucks just kept coming. Does this year’s team show any of the characteristics of last year’s? Not at all.

4. Daniel Scoring Again

Nice to see Daniel Sedin scoring again regularly. It wasn’t so much the goal he scored, but he had some serious velocity on the 3rd period power play shot that rang off the post. It bodes well for the Canucks if Daniel can return to even 75% of the sniper he used to be.

5. Nasty Robidas Hit, Suspension Coming?

This hit was pretty nasty. Shawn Matthias did not return to the game and looked pretty out of it when ushered into the Canucks dressing room. I would think this is a suspension, but we all know that there is a different standard the NHL uses when a Canuck is involved. Let’s see if they get this right. It should be a 2-gamer. Funny enough the Hockey Night In Canada crew spent the intermission focussing on Alex Burrows snow shower of Jonathan Bernier rather than discussing this hit.

No worries Canucks fans! The Canucks are 3-2 on this 7 game road trip and play a struggling Ottawa Senators team tomorrow.
