Canucks 1, Flyers 2 - Post Game: Our Heroes Fall (Oct 28)

The Vancouver Canucks lost 2-1 against the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday. It was a very tough game to watch for the Canucks fans. The lone goal they scored yesterday came by Quinn Hughes in the opening minutes of the game.

The Canucks ended the first period with only 4 shots on goal. They scored a goal in the first period which tied the game, but Philadelphia responded almost instantly with a second goal just 6 minutes 58 seconds in the game, which ended up being the winning goal.

Apart from the Former Canucks Player Zack Macewan‘s fight with Luke Schenn, the remainder of the game was very slow paced. The Canucks applied some pressure in the second period, but could not beat Martin Jones again. This left their fans disappointed as the Canucks continue to look for their first win at home this season.

After losing yet again, you start thinking that their is something not right with the Canucks.

Who's at fault?

Its tough to say just who’s at fault In this current Canucks slide. The team that came out of training camp this year has a roster of 13 new players. This makes it extremely difficult for a team to find its identity this early in the season when the players are still trying to figure out where they fit in the lineup.

It has been an unfortunate and difficult start to the season for the Canucks. Some of these reasons being

  • They started their season with six straight games on road, which led to them not having enough time to practice.

  • Pettersson missed 30 games last season because of his wrist injury, and then missed training camp and most of the pre-season.

  • The Canucks have dealt with some key injuries to start this season, forcing Travis Green to find ways to shake up his lines. J.T. Miller has to play center in the absence of Jason Dickinson. This has forced the lotto line to separate.

In the end, it is only the start of the Season, not time to panic quite yet. Canucks still have 74 games to play. It's time to show some Confidence in your team and stay away from the negativity. Our Heroes will rise soon.
