Hedges: Canucks fight back to win a striking point

Winning an unpleasant point seemed meaningful when losing a difficult road game on Thursday as Vancouver Canucks scored twice in the last four minutes of regulation to force overtime in a 4-3 loss to Nashville Forecasts.

The Canucks, who had scored twice in the last four minutes of a 3-2 victory on Tuesday in Columbus, extended their points to four games (3-0-1) against one of the best teams of the League National Hockey

The streak started with the 5-3 victory of Canucks against the Predators in Vancouver last Thursday. The Canucks looks like a totally different team than the one who ran 1-10-2 until he won a week ago into a three-successful game.

Colton Sissons re-directed Nick Bonino after Vancouver Anders Nilsson's goalkeeper at 3:05 overtime. Bo Horvat, who was beaten up by Sissons on the winner, was tied on leaving him with 44 seconds left in the third period. Nilsson was on the bench, so the Canucks skate five against five with an open net behind them when they tie it.

The trip started with 4:05 to go as Brock Boeser wiped one of Nashville's past Pekka Rinne's past timer, to end with Vancouver's play power in 1 to 22.

The short goal of Jay Beagle was the only score of Ganucks through 55 minutes as the Dealer was leading 3-1 on goals by Ryan Hartman, Calle Jarnkrok and Bonino, then dominating many of the final stages but Nilsson staggering

Still five points of play after swimming in November, the Canucks opens on Saturday against the Philadelphia Flyers.


Canucks coach, Travis Green, chose the start of Nilsson because the backup had not played in nine days, and Vancouver will need both goals if he wants to play a long-term play and play. But for Nilsson's play time, Mark Mark, the first kick, Mark Mark, who had won the three previous games and played as well as this season.

We have no problem with the trainer going to Nilsson, who was good at his last two, even if he has not won six appearances since October 16. We have a problem with Nilsson's cheating on the a real shot of Nashville that he encountered (Hartman's Holliston from above the circle at 5:52) and losing his angle enough for Bonino to shoot off and do 2-0 at 8:40 .

But by the third time, Nilsson's blame was impossible on the night because the pressress made a saucepan of five alarms saves to keep the Canucks close. The last season shows were 14-6 in Nashville before Vancouver started pushing a little before Boeser's goal.

Nilsson has probably played more than most team friends. Both resilience were impressive.


Horvat, who does not need C to be the leader of the Canucks, has made his most important playback in the game after a whistle.

When the Romans of Josi had overwhelmed Horvat in the late numbers in the game with the score still 3-1, Jake Virtanen was skating to engage with the Captain Predators. But knowing that his team was going to the power of play, Horvat supported Virtanen to ensure that Josi was the only one who went to the penalty box.

Thirty-nine seconds later, Boeser was throwing one past in Rinne and was a game on it.

In the NHL since he was 19, Horvat seems to have been old. Now 23, he has a great deal of wisdom.

Horvat's actions on Josi's play proved how smart it is, and how difficult it was. Hard enough to get something from a game, the Canucks should have lost in regulation.


As if his hat hat at St Louis's Sunday was not enough evidence to touch Boeser's score back, the soffomore who lost 13 games with the wound injury gave a scary mark with a power un-timer from away from her head. It was an old Boeser – if you can be old at age 21 – as he scored his first power play goal since last February. Even when he started slowly after a serious serious injury last season, then his problem grabs, Boeser has 10 goals in 21 games.

Her 23:06 ice time on Thursday, however, was about a minute too long. Boeser was caught on ice at 1:45 during overtime. A long, three to three change, which can happen.

But Boeser, who has easily accumulated by Josi at one scoring opportunity, needs to be slightly more aware in protecting in OT. He was watching well and burned in overtime in the Canucks 2-1 loss to Los Angeles Kings two weeks ago.


Erik Gudranson was a scratch of game time due to back sysm. I've been replaced by Alex Biega. If Green thinks he needs to change another line on Saturday, he may wish to consider Tim Schaller, who logged just 4:12 on Thursday but he was on the ice for Nashville's goals eight shifts


Yes, the hope of Canucks, Peter Palmu's return to the French League to play time, is the best thing for him. But the Canucks should not be very proud in doing the "right thing" for the 21-year-old child because the best thing for the organization would be to have a brain fire hydrant to spend & # 39; This season teaches the North American game with Utica Comets.

Instead, Palmu returns to TPS Turku after arriving only 12 of the 28 American Hockey League games, leaving behind no goals and one assists in what should have been a development season with a team Canucks farm.

We get it: the Canucks have many young expectations, especially promising wingers, who need play time in the AHL. But Palmu, a sixth round draft of 2017, was the last year's league of the Finnish League last season when he scored 17 times in 59 games, better than most peers in the Canucks forecast tournament in September and looks comfortably against NHL players during term time before season. Even on six-foot, he looked strong enough and abusive to treat the North American game.

If it had been great for him in Utica this fall, Palmu would still be long to become NHL on a regular basis. And you will have excellent development time with Turku – though beyond Canucks' direct control – and years have left to try to make the NHL. But it is difficult not to see it return to Finland, after a promising September in the Canucks institution, as a recovery to Palm and the club. Hopefully, that's all it's.
