Game File 21: Canucks 2 Blackhawks 1

I was unable to catch the game tonight, so my update will be short.   

The Good

Another win. 

The top line was in great form tonight, with a combined 10 shots on goal. 

It’s also great to see Green get his first goal this year.  It’s a small step, but an important one.

The Bad

There were 39 shots on net, and the Canucks still only managed two goals.   Despite the fact they now have two wins in a row, their inability to score more than two goals in a game will catch up to them quickly.

The Ugly

Yes, the Canucks now have two wins in a row.  Big deal.  The wins came against two of the lowliest teams in the league.  The Canucks should be winning if they want to consider themselves a playoff team. 

Only two goals against the Blackhawks?  That’s pitiful.  The teams losing ways will be back as they meet up with two giants this week, Detroit and Nashville.

Perhaps now is the time for Nonis to make a deal, when it looks like they are not trading from a weak position.  Really though, it’s clear they are.
