Here's what we learn as Canucks claims to have won a convincing 7-2 victory
The narrative was supposed to be about management. And it was.
However, Vancouver Canucks' major talents could dispense one of two capable stoppers – Thatcher Demko called Monday, Jacob Markstrom physically and mentally re-tuned – overshadowed at the other end of the Rogers Arena.
The Florida Panthers' supporter Sam Montembeault's inability to block anything during the opening period forced Sergei Bobrovsky to mop up the curvature until the visitors again hit musical targets to resume the second period.
Until then the damage had been done by Canucks. The first period contained the following editions:
– Scored 10 minutes into the game and scored another goal, but Brock Boeser scored another goal.
Renewed Tim Schaller scored the fourth goal in the last three games.
Jake Virtanen cried his third pointer many nights.
– Ridiculous Michael Ferland showed a lot of stuns to score two goals.
– Forgotten Loui Eriksson, did some devastating match work in the second goal.
The only drama left after Canucks went ahead 5-1 after 20 minutes was that they made a comeback to Freaky Friday when they blew the same advantage over the Washington Capitals. This wasn't gonna happen. Not this time.
What we learned, as Canucks claimed to have won a convincing 7-2 victory over a club, seemed to have played his second game a day later, and left Grade A in Edmonton one Sunday afternoon:
Un You want to play a fun game, and the game goes like this, but you still have to be strong on the disk and win the disk battles – this will never change, Can said Canucks & Coach Travis Green. Çalışmak Trying to score and trying to defend continues to win in the long run. I thought we were playing a direct first period and supporting the puck and they were at the summit of their defenders. We went out fast and hard. "
Schaller's power is suddenly something
The fourth-ranked winger had a training camp, admitting he had been strangled a year ago, and vowed to show he was a better player, as Canucks had scored a dozen goals with Boston before coming to the free agency.
After scoring and scoring in the first 23 games in the top ten, he won only 10 points in 47 games (3-7) and went on very often. What should a legitimate question do with the wing?
He waited for the answer and saw. Schaller scored in Detroit last Tuesday and added a pair on Friday. Hit it again Monday.
After the fourth goal of the season, Jay Beagle's claws in depth, Eriksson did some woodwork before Beagle found Schaller near the network. He broke the offer.
Am I can't get any shortcuts, Sch Schaller said. Y I must still be throwing, flapping and chasing the safe, so I'll keep playing the same way and hopefully the targets will continue to come. My goal tonight was like how we wanted to define our line. There are three men in the foresight, and that's what we want on every shift. It is difficult to play against and the goals will come. "
Added Green: “He had a tough year last year, and he looked like a different player – just from Day 1. You gain some confidence, and even when you see it and even the transition to Beagle leaving – this is a great time to pass. I'm happy for her. "
Miller's beautiful art of diversion
On a night when Canucks scored in every imaginable way, J.T. Miller’s play was once again displayed.
He had gone to four winged games without scoring goals, but his presence in the slot was rewarded for his willingness to win disc battles and play in traffic. He scored his 100th career goal with a wrist strike and ended the attack on four goals in 10 minutes of opening.
Later, he was late in the second half and began to take advantage of the scoring game started by the free and intelligent thinker Elias Pettersson who finished with three assists. The Calder Trophy winner returned in the offensive zone, found Alex Edler at the point, and Miller found the team leader to deflect the shot for his sixth goal.
“Now he's entering, Mil Miler said. Var There's a lot of times when you miss them and we're working on something. ”
Look at Jake. Look at Jake's skate. See Jake score.
Travis Green had a meeting with Virtanen on October 20 before being promoted to play with Bo Horvat and Tanner Pearson at Madison Square Garden. The coach was unaffected because Virtanen believed he would give more.
The logic was that the blade was fast enough, hit hard enough, and smart enough to complete the line. He was swayed by Horvat for a glorious chance, and it was a matter of time before he made up for the progress of the game.
He took the winner in Detroit and scored again on Friday. On Monday, the third goal of the young season was another result of being in the right place at the right time. When Horvat lowered the wing and took it to the net, Virtanen was there to slam him in. There was nothing complicated. Just a little hustle and bustle.
Or He plays well and there's a reason he stays on this line, Green Green said. Kullanıy He uses his speed and plays smart, he doesn't twinkle and doesn't play well on both ends of the track. This is what he has to do. And consistency. This is what Jake and I are talking about. "
Ferland finds this savagery
Ferland felt pressure from the beginning of this season.
He desperately wanted to deliver Canucks' faith in a four-year US $ 14 million commitment. The 27-year-old threat with Calgary Flames and Carolina Hurricanes had the potential to return to the 20 target plateaus and bring a necessary physical element.
This seemed like an access, because in 11 games one goal will not move the happy counter. However, following the aggressive game again will always be the winged ticket to be an important factor.
An aide, four shots, two strokes and a takeaway on Friday and two aides on Monday, will go a long way to regain the lost trust.
Ferland jumped away to tune Brandon Sutter with a backhand feed for the opening goal, and then used his size and presence with the disc to make a big open Josh Leivo 5-1.
