With goals from Brendan Morrison, Mattias Ohlund and Byron Ritchie, the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Chicago Blackhawks Wednesday night, 3-2. Markus Naslund added his assist to Ohlund's goal, giving him 725 points with the Canucks and edging him past Trevor Linden as career scoring leader.
Roberto Louongo made 25 saves against the Hawks, despite him saying he'd not felt his sharpest during this game. I'm sure if we were as sharp as Luongo on a bad day, the world would be a much better place to live and play. Way to go Bobby Lou.
Thursday night saw the Canucks fell the Predators in a 5-2 victory over Nashville. With this win, the Canucks reclaim their rightful place at the top of their division.
Goaltender Curtis Sanford saved an amazing 26 shots on goal out of 28 made last evening, with the powerhouse combination of Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin and Markus Naslund giving crushing opposition to the Preds with Alex Burrows, Taylor Pyatt, Trevor Linden scoring a goal a piece, and Daniel Sedin with two in the third period.
Vancouver's next game, against the Pittsburgh Penguins, will be this Saturday at 7PM.
