Sutter has a great two-way game
It’s not that often that Brandon Sutter has an offensive explosion. Wednesday night, Sutter did full well on not only playing a great defensive game, but also clicking offensively and putting up a three-point night on the scoresheet. He’ll take what he can get, especially for the twins.
With injuries in the top-six, Sutter got the nod from Travis Green to get some power play time. It paid off as Sutter was awarded the primary assist to Horvat’s much-needed game-opening goal. A beautiful bang-bang play handcrafted right out of your average power play playbook.
He added a secondary assist on the shutdown third line before closing out the game defensively in the final minutes and adding an empty-net goal for insurance. A great feeling of relief as his puck hit the netting. Daniel and Henrik get their ultimate tribute night, and the Canucks continued to find ways to win.
The Canucks found a way to get the job done. They dug deep in the defensive end and Markstrom was nothing short of spectacular. They honored the twins in the perfect way with a win over the rivaled Hawks. A few days of needed rest before the Canucks battle the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday. Puck drops at Rogers arena at 2 PM.
