Canucks finally get a goalie
Well, we already have him. It's Alex Auld
the ever reliable backup to the *cough* STARTING goaltender, Dan Cloutier. To avoid this getting into a 10,000 word expose about why Cloutier should go, I'll just say this. One, when it counts, he chokes. Two, I don't think Cloutier could save anything on any games that go to a shootout. And just for my new
can light the lamp repeatedly in front of the home faithful at GM Place. Let's hope this mild injury is a blessing for the 'nuckles, letting Marc Crawford finally realize that Auld is the goalie now and in the future.
And now down to business with Bert, and I mean
this Bert. The Bert-accu-scoreTM for the game was a decisive 12-0 for Vancouver, but the result that occured showed 2-1 for Vancouver. Well, the game came just 10 years, almost to the day, after the biggest sigh of relief this country ever had. Yes, Quebec voted No to sovereignty, in such a narrow margin as to instigate thousands of heart attacks across Canada. Okay, well, maybe. As such, the Canucks honoured Quebec's continued inclusion in Canada for forfieting a goal for every year of the anniversary. Minnesota, however, were able to jump on the reduced performance by Vancouver, and were able to squeak a goal in. As such, we have
Utter Golden PerfectionTM.
For our next match, as a warmup to the Red Wings visiting GM Place, to suffer yet another thumping by Bert and the Canucks, host the lowly Columbus Blue Jackets, who tonight, against Calgary, only managed 17 shots all game. I guess they missed that memo informing them there's no longer a two-line pass. As such, the Bert-accu-scoreTM for the game shall be
Vancouver 11 Columbus 0
