What was said
Bruce Boudreau was happy that the Canucks top-six players led the offence.
“If your best players aren’t your best players you rarely win,” said Boudreau. “Tonight they did their job and stepped up when they had to.”
He also praised the defence and Demko.
“I thought all the defence stepped up,” said Boudreau. “OEL had three points, (Tyler) Myers played 26 minutes. The forwards have to help them a little bit more but the defence as a whole was good tonight. The goaltending as usual, was out of this world.”
Ekman-Larsson spoke about facing his former team.
“It was tough, to be honest with you,” said Ekman-Larsson. ” A lot of emotions. Just seeing the guys on the other side. I thought it was going to be easier.”
Miller joked about his end-to-end goal with the media.
“It’s a much better story if I turn that over and they go down and score, right, for you guys? “said Miller per Daniel Wagner of Vancouver is Awesome.

Tweet of the night
That is not Canucks Army’s David Quadrelli (and former Canuck Way site expert.) waving to the camera but it kind of looks like him.
- With his two points, Miller has surpassed the 400 point mark in his career.
- This has to be one of the worst penalty calls I have ever seen. Tyler Motte gets his stick chopped out of his hands and it goes flying and hits Jakob Chychrun in the face. For whatever reason, Motte is the one who gets a high-sticking penalty.
- With Tuesday’s win, the Canucks have 48 points and are four points back of the Calgary Flames for the final wild card spot and seven points behind the Anaheim Ducks for third in the Pacific Division.
The Canucks get right back at it on Wednesday night as the New York Islanders come to town. Puck drop is at 7:30 PM.
