#4: J.T. Miller’s coast to coast goal against the Arizona Coyotes
Miller was the driver of the Canucks offence all season.
He had a year of personal milestones as he hit the 99-point mark which was ninth in the NHL. Miller was racking up the assists and scoring plenty of goals. Every time he was in the offensive zone, he tried to create scoring chances.
Out of all of Miller’s goals, this one was probably the best. Against the Arizona Coyotes on January 8, he starts behind his own net and just goes coast-to-coast to put the Canucks up 4-1. He made it look easy and the Coyotes’ defenders had no answer.
This is definitely the Canucks goal of the season. Seeing Miller just rush up the ice from behind his own net to score is a treat to watch.
Now, will Miller still be a Canuck next season? We’ll find out this summer.
#3: The skate returns as the Canucks rout Calgary Flames
The flying skate was is synonymous with the Canucks run to the Stanley Cup Final in 1994 and it is still a very popular jersey among the fans.
The skate was brought back for the first of three times this past season on February 24. It was going to be a tough test for the Canucks as the Flames came into the game with a 10-game win streak.
Vancouver ended that streak in big fashion as they crushed the Flames wearing the black skate jerseys 7-1.
Miller led the way with four points which included a penalty shot goal. The other Canucks big names also showed up on the scoresheet. Elias Pettersson got two goals and an assist and Bo Horvat scored a pair while Quinn Hughes got a couple of assists.
The Flames didn’t have any answers for the Canucks as it looked like they were in control for the entire game.
The Canucks were also 3-0 when they wore the flying skate during the season. Could we see it back again next season?
