Pyatt’s back in town

From Elliott Pap (Vancouver Sun): Canucks forward Taylor Pyatt has returned to Vancouver from Thunder Bay, Ont., after mourning the death of his fiancee Carly Bragnalo. Pyatt left the team weeks ago when Bragnalo was tragically killed April 2 in a motor vehicle accident while on vacation in Jamaica. Pyatt and Bragnalo were to be married this summer. Canucks assistant GM Laurence Gilman said Thursday it was uncertain whether Pyatt would immediately resume full workouts with his teammates. “I believe he will take a few days and get acclimated before any decision gets rendered,” Gilman said. No rush, Taylor. And...

‘Dem streaky Kings

My mother-in-law is coming in from Abbotsford and my sister-in-law is coming in from Vernon today to watch the Canucks game with me and Tracy. Both are big Canucks fans, but for whatever reason, Tracy and I have never seen a live Canucks game with either one of them. Needless to say, we’re very much looking forward to tonight. ***** The Kings are as streaky a team as you’d find these days. They’ve won 3 in a row at home after losing 4 in a row on the road; but just before that, they lost 4 straight home games and...

That ever-elusive secondary scoring 0

That ever-elusive secondary scoring

When it was put together 3 games ago, the Demitra-Sundin-Kesler line was expected to provide some secondary scoring and take the heat off the Sedin line. It has, of course, done more than that, outscoring the Sedin line 22 (9G-13) – 6 (3G-3A) in 3 straight wins. The other thing I noticed is that Vigneault has taken to putting the Sundin line (with Bernier on the wing, and sometimes, Demitra on the point) out first on the powerplay. In fact, Demitra, Sundin and Kesler combined for 36:58 minutes of powerplay ice-time the last 3 games vs. Sedin, Sedin and Pyatt’s...
