A game like this is fun to watch but can hard to watch too. The Canucks tried on 8 power plays through out the game to score. They just couldn't get one past Lundqvist. Luongo had a rather slow night but was peppered with 10 shots in the 3rd and something fell apart. Personally my favourite part of the game was when the Canucks got 3 power plays in a row. The passing and puck handling between the Canucks when they are up a man is so fun to watch. The talent and skill these players have is unreal.
The night started with a lovely tribute to former Canuck Rick Rypien. Rypien's family was in attendance and the video was beautiful. Celebrating a life that was lost way to soon. 37 RYP you will forever be in our hearts. Check out the Beautiful Canuck Tribute to Ryp in "If you need a visual." The Canucks for Kids Fund with support from the NHLPA Goals and Dreams Fund made a $50,00 donation to BC Children's Hospital for research and a website about mental health awareness, in honor of Rypien.
On to a crazy night in the NHL did anyone see the #14 Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars goal? Is it possible for a player to get credited for 2 assists on his own goal? This is the goal it would happen on. Benn from Victoria, British Columbia beat 5 Columbus Blue Jackets to score a goal and grab his 5th point of the season. Watch the amazing goal in "If you need a Visual?"
Winnipeg Jets Win! The Jets take home their 1st Victory of the season against the extremely talented Pittsburgh Penguins. The Jets Kyle Wellwood and Tanner Glass, both former Canucks scored the 2 goals to win. The Penguins did get a goal in the 2nd but it was not enough for a win. Go Jets! I would love to see this win streak continue.
