#3 Thatcher Demko kept the Canucks close
We are starting to sound like a broken record in our post game articles but can you blames us?
Thatcher Demko has been solid to start the season and he didn’t slow down against the Wild. You couldn’t really fault him for the three goals he gave up. (See takeaway number one.)
With the Wild getting the majority of the scoring chances, Demko was there to shut the door.
Perhaps his best save of the night was this incredible glove save off Frederick Gaudreau in the second period.
The 25-year-old netminder has been the MVP of the Canucks so far this season.
Much like previous games this season, he stood tall. Demko was once again there when the Canucks needed to be.
- Justin Bailey was called up prior to Tuesday’s game. He looked good as he displayed some speed and made a big block on the penalty kill.
- Nils Höglander was one of the few Canucks who displayed energy and tenacity all game.
- While Chiasson did score on the power play, it does make more sense to have Brock Boeser on the first power play unit instead.
The Canucks homestand continues when the Philadelphia Flyers come to town on Thursday. Puck drop is at 7:00 PM.
