Canucks postgame quotes

Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault:

“The first thing we wanted to do obviously was shut down their best line. I thought, except for that last shift where Kopitar was able to read our defenseman, our guys did a pretty good job containing them and keeping them to the outside. They’re such a strong line. From there it was about being patient and waiting for the right opportunity.”

Vancouver goalie Andrew Raycroft:

“It was a nice, greasy road win. We’ll take them all year. It was nice to win on the road. We did a good job killing penalties and keeping that top line off the score sheet. No time, no space.”
