The best teams in hockey usually win games they probably shouldn’t win. Go look at Carey Price‘s start with the Montreal Canadiens.
Unfortunately for the Canucks, Ryan Miller had a very lackluster performance. He was way out of position for Dylan Larkin‘s opening period goal. The next two goals were softies, which simply cannot go in.
But what’s most troubling is how this team only managed one goal.
The Wings are better coached, more talented and faster. The Canucks still found ways to dictate the play, but they just couldn’t finish when they had to.
Even though it was encouraging on Troy Stecher‘s part to see him register six shots on goal, it was also a sign of how Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin aren’t getting the support they need on offence.
