The view from Vancouver - LA Kings Insider

Vancouver Sun

Iain MacIntyre: Canucks tough enough in win against brawny Kings

“Three early L.A. penalties helped fuel momentum for Vancouver, which made it 2-0 23 seconds into the second period when Henrik Sedin deflected in Troy Stecher’s tumbling point shot. The best Canuck after that was goalie Ryan Miller, who finished with 36 saves.”

Canucks 2 Kings 1: Refreshed Canucks answer the challenge

“Being five points back of the Kings and needing to leapfrog four clubs just to get to the postseason is a daunting challenge and the Canucks answered it — at least for one night — by hanging on for a 2-1 triumph to end a two-game losing streak.”

Canucks Post Game: Eriksson talks chemistry, Megna talks opportunity, Miller talks accountability

“Megna had a strong start with three first-period shots, a power-play re-direct off the post and he also drew a penalty. Outside of finding how hard it would be to sustain a battle level against the Kings, he was a pleasant surprise.”


Canucks Army post-game: A crowning achievement

“Tonight’s game puts the Canucks five points back of the Kings, who hold down the final playoff spot in the West. Had they lost tonight, they’d be nine down. Their odds aren’t great as is, but that’s just about the final nail in the coffin. You just can’t understate how important this game was for the Canucks.”

Canucks-Kings recap

“This is just the 8th time in 36 games Vancouver takes a lead into the third. The Canucks started the third where they left off in the second: being badly outshot. The Kings rattled off another six shots before the period was five minutes old but Miller found them all.”
