One night after handily defeating the Columbus Blue Jackets 6-2, the Vancouver Canucks were seemingly in control of their matchup vs. the Chicago Blackhawks last night. The game was a fast-paced affair and while both sides traded decent chances, Roberto Luongo was extremely sharp.
Then, in the blink of eye, the Blackhawks potted two quick third-period goals and the Canucks fell into a hole from which they couldn’t climb out of.
The time between the two goals? Nine seconds.
It was shocking, disappointing, and disheartening. Despite a valiant effort for the rest of the game, the Canucks couldn’t solve Corey Crawford and lost by a familiar 2-1 score.
