Winning an unsuccessful spot seemed to be as important as the loss of the fourth difficult race, as Vancouver's Canucks won twice in the last four minutes to score 4-3 at the Nashville Predators.
The Canucks, who also won twice in the last four minutes in the second third tournament in Columbus, extended his points to four games (3-0-1) against one of the best teams in the National Hockey League.
The bout started with Canucks' 5-3 win against Predators in Vancouver last Thursday. Canucks looks a whole different team than the one who went 1-10-2, before the winner won the week for a successful three-game ride.
Colton Sissons led Nick Bonino goalkeeper walk over Vancouver goalkeeper Andersam Nilsson overtime 3:05. Bo Horvat, Sisson won the ice with ice cream, had drawn short hands to a 44-second kickback, left in the third period. Nilsson was on the bench, so Canucks skipped five to five, with an open network behind them when they grabbed it.
Sportsne NOW offers this season without surprising games, including the hockey night in Canada, the Rogers Hometown Hockey, Scotiabank Wednesday evening hockey, the entire replay of the 2019 Stanley Cup, and more.
The vengeance began at noon. 4:05 when Brock Boeser led one timer in the past with Nashville goalkeeper Pekka Rinne to end the Vancouver game.
The shortest goal of Jay Beagle was the only Canucks score for 55 minutes when Predators ran 3-1 at the goal of Ryan Hartman, Calle Jarnkrok and Bonino, and then dominated most of the last leg, but Nilsson pushed it down.
Five more points from the playground after the end of November, Canucks opens a five-game homestand on Saturday against the Philadelphia Flyers.
Always GOALIE CONTROVERSY
Canucks trainer Travis Green chose to start Nilsson because he did not play for nine days and Vancouver would need both goalkeepers if he wants to make a long-term concession to the final. But in order to get Nilsson playing time, Green sat on the hot starter Jacob Markstrom who had won the previous three games and plays just as well as this season.
We have no problem with a coach who goes to Nilsson who was good in his last two starts, even though he has not won six appearances since October 16th. We have a problem with Nilsson smearing on the first real Nashville shot he faces (Hartman's wrister from the top of the circle at 5:52) and loses his angle enough Bonino to shoot the far side and make it 2-0 at noon. 8:40.
But in the third period, Nilsson did not have to blame at night, as netminder made a small five-signal saving to keep Canucks close. The last shot was shot at Nashville 14-6, before Vancouver began to strike shortly before Boeser's goal.
Nilsson probably played better than most teammates. Both were impressive.
Unauthorized Captain My Captain
Horvath, who does not need C as Canucks, played the second most important game after the whistle.
When Rome Josi was horribly checked by Horvat at the end of the game, but the score was still 3-1, Jake Virtanen wept to join the Predators captain. But knowing that his team is going to the game, Horvat stepped back from Virtanen to ensure that Josi was the only one who goes to the penalty box.
Thirty-nine seconds later Boeser crushed one previous Rinne and it was a game.
NHL, aged 19, Horvat seems to have been born old. Now 23, he has a lot of wisdom.
Horvat's performance in Josi's play showed how clever he is and how tough. It's hard enough to get something out of a game that Canuk should lose in regulation.
As if his hat trick Sv. Luis's Sunday was not enough evidence that Boeser got to the back, the second century, who was thrown out with a groin injury for 13 games, placed an exclamation mark with his one-time playback of his off-wing This was vintage Boeser – if you can be a vintage something at age 21 – because he got his first goal goal from last February. Even with his slow start after a serious back injury last season, Boeser has 10 goals in 21 games, after his plight.
However, his Thursday afternoon ice time was 23:06 too long. Boeser was down 1:45 overtime. Long-term changes, three to three that can happen.
But Boeser, having easily rounded Josi for one point, must be a bit more aware of defending OT. He had a poke of watching and burnt overtime Canucks 2-1 loss at the Los Angeles Kings two weeks ago.
Eric Gudranson was due to bad weather jets. He was replaced by Alex Biega. If Green thinks he needs another change on Saturday, he might want to consider Tim Schaller, who only played 4:12 on Thursday, but was on ice for Nashville goals in his eight shifts.
Yes, he's best at Canucks's favorite Petrus Palmu, who returns to mid-season in the Finnish top to win the game. But Canucks should not rejoice at the fact that the 21-year-old is given the "right thing," as the organization would have been the best winged fireman for this season to spend the North American game with Utica Comets.
Instead, Palma returns to TPS Turku after getting into only 12 of the 28 American hockey league games, leaving no goals and helping what would have been in the development season with the Canucks Farm team.
We perceive it: Canucks has many new prospects, especially promising wings, for which AHL plays time. But Palma, the sixth round of the pick pick from 2017, who was the Rookie of the Finnish League last season when he won 17 times 59 games, was better than most of his peers in the Canyon chances in the tournament in September and looked comfortable against the NHL players before the season. Even in the last five months, he looked strong enough and aggressive enough to be able to handle the North American game.
If the events in this fall were to take place in Utica, Palma would still be long in order to become an NHL regular. And he will get a great development time with Turku – even though out of Canucks' immediate control – and there are many years left to try to make the NHL. But it's hard to say that his return to Finland after the promising Canaries Organization in September, as Palma and the club's resignation. Hope this is all.
