Another Loss For The Vancouver Canucks

from Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet,

Suddenly and unexpectedly back in the game Saturday and with a chance to save a series and restore some confidence, the Vancouver Canucks used all the hard lessons learned from a difficult start to the season and, naturally, applied none of them.

They made the same big mistakes – mistakes you can’t overcome -- to get another discouraging result, losing 5-2 to the Montreal Canadiens at Rogers Arena to fall three games below .500 for the first time since March 26, 2019.

Seven games into the National Hockey League season, it’s hard to say if the Canucks are good enough to compete in the Canadian division because all they’ve done so far is beat themselves.

They are 2-5-0, allowed the Canadiens to light them up with 17 goals in three games, and continue to get net-negative play from some of their top skaters.
