vs. Colorado Avalanche (35-31-4) Wednesday, March 15th
Leading scorer: Matt Duchene (29 goals, 55 points)
Keys to the game:
- Keep it simple
Sorry if that looks too easy to you. Winning against the Colorado Avalanche comes from doing the simple things right. This starts off withÂ positioningÂ while defending. As a defenceman, your role it to keep the opposition from getting the puck in your net. To make that happen, you have to stand between your net and the attacker.
As simple as that sounds, the Canucks could not do that the last time around.
An active stick is what you need next. These Avalanche, as young as they might feel in comparison to the Canucks, do not possess so many high-end scorers as you think. They score dirty goals and crash the net while taking advantage of your miscues. The Canucks should be able to survive the Avalanche.
Is it just me or have these two played against one another every week now, for the past three/four weeks? Certainly feels like it.
I think this would be a nice and easy game for Tryamkin to play. Anyone with me?
For a Canucks win:
Everyone but Janik
