Losing is no fun and the Vancouver Canucks know that. But yet, they failed to get a ‘W’ for five straight games, and looked mentally absent for at least three of them. And as if four straight losses had not been enough, they even got shut out by none other than the Boston Bruins. Bad time to be a Canucks fan.

Luckily, the Nucks took the a first step toward a turn-around with a 5-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres. That’s right, they scored five goals — and the Sedins only combined for a goal and two assists, which means that three goals were scored without the help of Henrik and Daniel. That’s right.

So, does this mean Canucks playoff tickets are going on sale or was it just a random win in the midst of a terrible season? We will find out soon. Until then, let’s take a look at what happened last night.
