BROOKLYN, N.Y. It started on Tuesday as a coaching genius.
Travis Green needed less than three minutes to reward his line and Brendan Leipsic's faith in the promotion of the first season. The young NHL caught the second goal of the season sharply.
Vancouver could have ended in less than three minutes in a bizarre 45-second series that could be able to collect Canucks in the second half of the games played in a row and could solve them like a series of balls.
A tough Goalding gaffe by Jacob Markstrom & Josh Bailey crossed a check from the rear by Chris Tanev's non-game Anders Lee, while New York Islanders were able to drive away from Canucks. gained momentum. However, the ongoing flexibility that has become the calling card of the renewed list has allowed visitors to find themselves in another target game.
Then came the biggest argument. And it was too big.
What we learned when Canucks's 5-2 fall in the fifth stop of six-game journey:
Markstrom gets a great gaffe, bad call
In his ninth straight net call, Canucks' starter made the remarkable reel for all the wrong reasons for the first Islanders.
Markstrom, Tom Kuhnhackl, didn't cover the post with a skating knife when he threw Ben Hutton into a seemingly harmless rear corner, multiplied by a delayed penalty.
Puck had slowly shifted to the short side, and everyone was wondering if Markstrom was tired from playing the night before – if Green was a # pretty fresh st – or one of the ongoing equipment adjustments.
As the crowds know, new skates have no tur theft ”and if the movement is not sharp or is fast enough, coverage may occur.
Sounds complicated. Why don't you just stop the disc?
Markstrom regained his injury and saved the second period, Canucks, who tried to squeeze his shot between the pads, putting Valtteri Filppula at a target in the third period.
Then came another strange set.
When Kuhnhackl tried to enter a corner feed at the beginning of the third period, the Barclays Center Jumbotron made it clear that the armpit and the Spearflap left behind Markstrom a wobbly weapon that inadvertently shook his weapons.
I seemed to be right to challenge the on-ice search, but I concluded that a review was a good target. And a bad break.
Maybe he needs a break. Richard Bachman on Thursday. In Paul, will Minn begin as a bad idea to travel? Probably not.
Have a better day at the end of the power game
“No magic formula“
It was how hard Green was able to produce a steady power game since Alex Edler, Sven Baertschi, and Brock Boeser lost the injury.
With eight chances, nothing will be shown for the previous two games – and only two of them – 16 in the first four games of the trip – were patiently doing banking with two units filled with green in the first unit, with special team players. Adam Gaudette, Nikolay Goldobin and Leipsic.
Green's rookie Elias Pettersson, who ranks seventh among all the centers, had reasons to believe he would have the chance to dispose of a one-time cannon with an average time of 4.18 per game, while Canucks could only be penalized. And they did.
Five opportunities produced seven shots and Jake Virtanen's eighth goal of the season.
This is the same story to kill a penalty.
Bring the injured Brandon Sutter and Jay Beagle – and take a greater burden on Bo Horvat with the defense zone faceoff – and that was a fight. Since the sutter shoulder injury, Canucks appeared in the 13th in the six games of 19. On Tuesday, they killed the first four Islanders.
Virtanen sends mixed messages
Virtanen's Green approach to the right-wing design, or just to find the right four-line balance of the Green-yo approach is Virtanen. At first glance, it was a goal to go to Leipsic – a goal and six shots – there is also a way to reach Virtanen with a goal, six shots and eight attempts. This season doesn't need a big push.
In an effort to steal power, the winger was suspended in traffic, and when a jump jumped, he quickly began to cross goalkeeper Thomas Greiss. Virtanen, last season's 8 & # 39; th goal did not reach until March 5 and only 10 goals completed.
And in a game of power that followed on Tuesday, Virtanen was again the down-down presence of the second unit. He reversed the position and the large body, a scoring attempt on the cross.
However, Virtanen, 4:21 on the left, and the Monsters doubles as a 4-2 & # 39; d. This is what makes Green go crazy.
