Quick Hit Version: Ducks 4 Canucks 3

Go ahead get excited. This was a huge win. It’s 12:44a.m. and I’m going to do this one in point form. Need some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz’s too.

McBackUp was as good as we needed him to be.

Bobby Ryan’s goals were all about patience. Selanne and Getzlaf holding the puck and drawing attention to open the passing and shooting lane. Brilliant!

Big Sexy & Big Mac (McMillan) have some natural chemistry. Sexton is a talented playmaker who get the puck to the net. McMillan has a nose for the net.Jason Blake is on fire. He created 4-5 scoring chances tonight simply by getting in first on the fore-check.

Visnovsky & Lydman were unnoticeably brilliant logging more than 27 and 24 minutes respectively.

The other day I posted and agreed with Bruins Coach Claude Julien who said players are unnecessarily putting themselves in vulnerable positions. Dan Hamhuis turning his back on Ryan Getzlaf is a case on point.

How tough are these Big Bad Ducks? 26 hits, 18 blocked shots. Kind of like flying in bad weather and swimming in ice cold water. Duck tough!

    Sexy may not be a Martin St Louis but IMO he shows his value – especially as you point out – when he’s playing along side of McMillian.

      Hey bb, Dan Sexton’s time is now. Big Sexy is RFA at the end of this season. He’s playing for his next contract. Also the competition to keep that top 9 spot is going to get tougher with Jason Jaffrey skating again and Smith-Pelley, Palmieri, Belesky, Maroon and Etem coming along.

      Glad to see the NHL won’t be taking disciplinary action against our captain for the hit on Hamhuis.
