Hey Caylie,

If I ever throw a party, can you remind me to have Luongo host it for me? The guy seems like not only a solid draw, but a great host too. I mean, who else would give away the good china to someone who already has plenty of his own?

Hi Chris,

Is there an NHL award for most giving? If not, it can be named the Roberto Luongo award and he would be the no. 1 contender each year running.

After that goal from Lappy, looks like Niemi is aspiring to be like Bobby Luo with that bad clearing attempt.

Bad clearances: 2 / Luongo & Niemi: 0

Hey Caylie,

So now that we’re even on easy goals, it saddens me that the Sharks scored that PPG. I thought the only way to score on Louie was behind the goalline. Oh well.

I have to say I’m impressed with the effort we saw from the Canucks late in the second. Too bad we couldn’t punch that one in on the goal line – I heard the Bengals have scouts in the rink tonight.

Hi Chris,

Before the series started there was a consensus amongst analysts that special teams would decide the series. After two periods the Canucks are definitely losing that battle. Going 0-for-3 without any quality chances, the Sharks had no trouble setting up and scoring on their first try.

I agree with you, the last 5 minutes of the second period showed a lot of positives. The Canucks were winning puck battles, cycling the puck and getting shots on net. Now all we need to do is put that little black round thing in the big net.

Hey Caylie,

Wow – after watching the first half of the game, I would have never thought the Canucks could exert that much force on the Sharks. At times, it was if the home squad was playing a beer league team from SoCal – I’m not saying the Sharks are a beer league team, but dang they got run over!

And how about Henrik. True his goal came during a powerplay, but think this will help deflect some of this “sister” chatter we’ve heard lately?

Hi Chris,

I couldn’t agree more. The first 20 minutes, the Canucks looked like a team coming off a long break. I found the first to be very choppy, without much flow.

After going down by 1 in the second I was extremely impressed by the response from the boys. They really applied the pressure with a tough forecheck and good work along the boards.

I was extremely impressed by the 3rd line. I thought they played solid minutes and spent the majority of their time in the Sharks zone. AV also showed a lot of confidence in them, using them in the last few minutes in the game.

It was great to see Henrik get a goal but even better to see it on the powerplay. After a few mediocre PP’s in the first 2 periods, it was good to see the first unit capitalize.

I expect a big series from the first line. I think we saw big signs of great things to come. They seemed to have drive and purpose on the majority of their shifts and it was great to see their cycling game back in action.

Huge comeback win! It was awesome to see the Canucks turn the intensity up a notch and take it to the BIG Sharks. Can’t wait for game 2!

    @2032efeff1419a584e804128cf0fb12f:disqus … 52 fluke wins, a Presidents trophy, Art Ross and Jennings award winners, Selke, Vezina, Ted Lindsay, General Manager of the Year, and a Jack Adams nominee… I don’t know where your rant is coming from but all I can imagine is that you are a bitter Sharks fan who is 3 losses away from elimination or your not happy with your not happy with your golf game.
