Waking up with the Kings: October 23

The opportunistic 2016-17 Vancouver Canucks nearly very nearly won despite never having led in regulation for the fourth time in five games, and perhaps there seemed to be faint and ominous overtones when it became clear the visitors’ comeback from three goals down would be decided in a shootout, but no, a marker from Tanner Pearson, two big Peter Budaj saves and an Alexandre Burrows fumble allowed the Kings to claim a win in which they were the better team for the majority of the game. There were surely some issues related to early season raised penalty rates (not that […]

October 22 postgame quotes: Brown, Budaj

Dustin Brown, on the shootout win: I thought we controlled the play. They get two power play goals, so it’s sometimes the way the game goes. Special teams is huge every night. I mean, our special teams got a power play and a shorthanded goal. It’s just we gave ‘em opportunity after opportunity. It puts a lot of stress on the PK. Brown, on the surplus of early season penalties: We talked about it before. They always start off calling everything, and then as the year goes on, they let a little bit more go. Either way, we’ve got to […]

October 22 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter

On the team’s performance in the shootout win: It was a really solid game. It was the best three periods that we’ve put together in one game all season. On Dustin Brown’s performance: He was a physical player, clearly. Strong on the walls and strong on the puck, If he does that, he has a chance to have individual success. On the Andreoff-Dowd-Brown line: We need four lines, as I’ve said. The third and fourth lines have got to score goals and check and be physical. On Peter Budaj’s performance: I think he gave us a chance to win. A […]

Notebook: McNabb hits irk opponents; Canucks previewed

McNabb understands he’ll have to defend himself after hits No one wants to see a player injured, but the hit Brayden McNabb landed on Patrick Sharp during the second period of Thursday’s 4-3 overtime win in Dallas changed the complexion of the game and led to raised emotion and chippiness – including 18 minutes of penalties absorbed by Antoine Roussel over the remainder of the contest. McNabb, who issued one of his calling card-type open-ice hits near the board in the defensive zone, was dragged away from a fracas behind the Kings net one shift later by a berserk Roussel […]
