I have to wait till Sunday for the next game? Sunday?

I hate you Coldplay

Thoughts on the game:
  • The 1st, 2nd and 3rd star goes to Cory Schneider
  • Cory Schneider was solid in the 1st period when the Canucks were not, Cory Schneider was solid in the 2nd period and Cory Schneider was more solid in the 3rd period when he had pucks thrown at him from everywhere
  • Schneider's ability to the track the puck is really good. Really fun to watch him
  • No need to ask who starts Game 5, it's Cory
  • That PP...geez...it's night and day with Daniel on it
  • The Canucks looked timid in the 1st period until Edler scored, but had a really good 2nd and 3rd period...
  • ...if you overlook the fact that at the end of the 2nd the Kings had outshot the Canucks 31-16. It was more even in the 3rd at 14 Canucks to 13 Kings
  • Daniel Sedin played 19:33
  • The 4th line hardly played the 3rd period and good call by AV on that
  • Zach Kassian played 3:52....yeah
  • Huge shift by Lapierre in the 3rd
  • Brutal decision by Mason Raymond on that Anze Kopitar goal. At least he didn't fall down, right?
  • Another penalty shot stop by Schneider, I believe he's undefeated so far in the NHL

It's been so long since we've played with a lead or got a powerplay goal that when they happened, I felt like I didn't know how to react. Definately a few breaths were held during the game but we got the win, so we're still alive for now. Next game is on Sunday since Rogers will be busy with Coldplay concerts ono Friday and Saturday which means more time for Daniel to recover and get a few more practices in. For us as fans and the team, it will be a long 4 day break.
