What was said
Chiasson played on Pettersson and J.T. Miller’s line due to Tanner Pearson leaving the game with an injury in the first period. Boudreau provided an update on him.
He also spoke about what has made the power play tick.
“I don’t know the exact key,” said Boudreau per Johnston. “Since I’ve been here it’s gotten better. Not by me, by the way, but just saying. I think using the same units really helps. I think Brad (Shaw)’s done a really good job with the penalty killing, as did Scott (Walker) before him and I think Jason (King) does a good job with the PP but I mean, we’ve been able to use those same five guys for the most part on every power play.”
Horvat spoke about his big night and his great play lately.
“I’m playing with confidence,” said Horvat. “Definitely feel good with the puck night in and night out but at the same time getting the wins are more important.”
“With a few injuries through out our group, it’s a good opportunity for me to showcase what I can do on the power play,” said Chiasson.
Advanced stat of the night
According to NaturalStatTrick, when Tyler Myers was on the ice the Canucks had 11 shots (the most when any Canuck was on the ice) and only four shots against (the least when any Canuck was on the ice.)
A pretty good night for the Chaos Giraffe only there wasn’t any chaos.
Tweet of the night
Moral of the story: Don’t let the haters drag you down, use them as motivation to do better. Looks like Horvat is doing exactly that.
The Canucks return home and will face the San Jose Sharks on Saturday. Puck drop is at 7:00 PM.
