GAME RECAP #4: Canucks lose another road game. Lightning 4 Canucks 3

October 20, 2023
- Westy

This early game was not seen by many in NM land...and they should be happy they missed it. The Canucks played a 40 minute game at best and struggled to keep up with the Lightning at certain points. The Nucks did have the lead for a certain point in the 2nd period, but never had the lead going into a period. Tyler Myers scored a goal and was the main reason that the lightning scored their first and fourth goal. Petey got 2 points and yet looked slow at times. The 2nd and 3rd defense pairing both struggled with speed and pushing guys off the puck. The third and fourth line of forwards really didn't do much to create offence.

So needless to say, Taco has lots to work on with this team. The Canucks need to find a way to get a win in Florida. When Taco thinks about softness, which he constantly does, these extended losing streaks on the road, is one of the areas he is pointing out. Two good wins against a good western team is wiped away quickly in the east. i can't believe how frustrated I am after only 4 games.

I bought into the 2 game hype

I can't blame Kent any longer for the losses. I could try, but it seems useless. This team needs more time or different players to truly play a Taco shutdown system. Or maybe some more hot sauce.

The one piece of good news...the Canucks, as of right now, are a playoff team.


Comment System How-To

New NM, new comment system. Still uses words and stuff. Hover over the icons to see what they do. 

The most vital function is image embedding. Paste the link to the image in the comment box. When the comment is posted, the image appears. Most of  the time. 

NOTE: Remove the non-image name jibberish. If the image link has any stuff after the file extension - usually a ? with directives like: woo.gif?size=480 blah blah - delete up to and including the ? - simples.

GIF it up for Westy! Or still life in rum.
NOTE: Comments refresh every 30 seconds. Not fast enough for most of our lightening round contestants. We are working to increase the refresh speed. Just... not working too hard... because NM labour guidelines. Thanks for being patient!
