So much for the Calgary Flames franchise tying 10-game winning streak. The Vancouver Canucks blew the visitor’s doors off at Rogers Arena.
The Canucks scored in every situation: Even Strength, power play, shorthanded, and on a penalty shot. Here’s the madness.
2nd Period 1-0 Vancouver – Elias Pettersson (15) – Quinn Hughes, Brock Boeser (3:42) Power Play
— A one-timer from the RW circle, a 93-mile-per-hour slapper top shelf, stick side on former Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom.
2nd Period 2-0 Vancouver – JT Miller (19) – Quinn Hughes, Elias Pettersson (10:18) Power Play
— Miller took his time, walked into the LW circle and ripped a snapper top shelf, stick side, short side on Markstrom. Post and in.
2nd Period 3-0 Vancouver – Bo Horvat (16) – Unassisted (10:50) Even Strength
— Off a Canucks 2-on-1 with Tyler Motte charging in and shooting, a huge rebound came out to Horvat who beat three backcheckers, had time, and ripped it … take a guess … stick side on Markstrom.
((With two minutes left in the 2nd Period, Markstrom left with a broken skate. Dan Vladar was forced to replace him and ended up staying in net the rest of the night after giving up two goals before the period was over.))
2nd Period 4-0 Vanvouver – Bo Horvat (17) – JT Miller, Brock Boeser (18:42) Power Play
— Horvat stuffed home his 2nd of the night off a beautiful skate feed in front from Miller. Gaping net.
2nd Period 5-0 Vancouver – JT Miller (20) – Unassisted (19:55) Penalty Shot
— Calgary defenceman Rasmus Andersson closed his hand on the puck in his crease and Miller was awarded the penalty shot, the first of his career. He deked Vladar out of his jock on a forehand finish.
3rd Period 6-0 Vancouver – Conor Garland (14) – Tanner Pearson, JT Miller (4:33) Even Strength
— A big rebound came out to Garland alone in the LW circle and he potted it off of Vladar’s diving stick and in.
3rd Period 7-0 Vancouver – Elias Pettersson (16) – Unassisted (7:23) Shorthanded
— On a breakaway, ‘Petey’ smoked one past Vladar glove side from the slot.
3rd Period 7-1 Calgary – Andrew Mangiapane (26) – Mikael Backlund, Blake Coleman (17:53) Even Strength
— Cutting in alone, this time Mangiapane finished his 2nd breakaway of the night with a successful deke.
Winning streak over for the Flames, while the Vancouver Canucks keep their playoff hopes flickering.
Vancouver begins a four-game eastern road trip on Sunday night at Madison Square Garden in New York against the Rangers.
