Canucks Down Avs

The Vancouver Canucks survived an ugly fist period and turned what was supposed to be Hodgson vs Duchene round 2 into the JanHan/Daniel Show.The Canucks were badly out played and out shot in the first period but a Daniel Sedin wrap around bounced in off Avs goaltender Varlomov and Luongo was flawless giving the Canucks a 1-0 lead heading into the 2nd period.

Booth collided with Avs defenceman Kevin Porter half way through the first and went down violently. He had to be helped off the ice and did not return. He is scheduled for an MRI tomorrow.  

Early in the second period Luongo took a puck off the throat and went down causing a smile on Cory Schneider’s face. Luongo would miss the rest of the game but did sit on the bench for the third period. The injury is reported to be minor and he is expected to start versus Montreal in the Canucks next game.

Schneider made a couple big saves early, allowing the Canucks to maintain their lead. JanHan and Bieksa executed a give and go to perfection in the slot with JanHan driving home his 8th goal of the season giving the Canucks a 2 goal lead.

It was all Canucks in the third as Daniel scored 2 more to complete the hattrick and JanHan tied his career season high with his 9th goal of the year. Schneider completed the shutout as the Canucks cruised to a 6-0 win in Rogers Arena.
