Ebene News – CA – Canucks game night: putting out the flames requires more goals, more discipline

Vancouver comes out of six-day hiatus after an appalling schedule to face (subject to COVID protocols) a Flames team who have an identical 16-18-3 record

1 Boeser bounces back: Canucks come out of six-day hiatus after appalling schedule and if anyone has the ammo to throw them offensively it’s Brock Boeser He has three goals and six points in the season series and his 16 goals rank 11th in the league and he is tied for the team lead on the power play with six goals.

2 Flames Can’t Flicker: A 5-1 home loss to Winnipeg on Monday made the playoffs a mirage Five losses in the last six games will do that “We’re not doing a very good work in the face of adversity, “Flames winger Matthew Tkachuk told Postmedia” They (the Jets) go 1-1 and we let that net go into the second “

3 Boyd really argued: After a mandatory seven-day COVID-19 quarantine in a hotel, Travis Boyd trained on a line with Tyler Motte and Brandon Sutter on Monday and was also on the second power play unit ahead of his Canucks debut He is an unrestricted free agent, but could feature in future lineup plans

4 Lost Bench Boss: As expected, the Flames received a giant wake-up call when Darryl Sutter replaced licensee Geoff Ward The no-frills bench boss put a premium on an overall team game and the club responded with three consecutive wins However, sustainability then became the biggest concern as Sutter seeks solutions

5 Lords of Discipline? Canucks rack up second-most penalties Alex Edler has fourth-most infractions and Tyler Myers is tied for sixth And Vancouver has been rated as second-most bench infractions for Too Many Men on the ice with eight A bad trend for slim playoff aspirations
