The Vancouver Canucks showed a lot of strength as they won against Minnesota Wild last night. The players showed extreme determination and intent, qualities which they put to good use against a Minnesota team that looked capable of fighting back, particularly in the first. The Canucks took the lead early in the game with Manny Malhotra striking it just after the 5 minute mark. The Minnesota Wild tried to fight back but they were faced with a Cory Schneider that was almost unbeatable. The goalie managed a total of 28 saves, frustrating the Wild into losing the match.

“Some of our Ds played a lot of minutes and we had a couple of kids back there getting their first taste of a real serious push,” Alain Vigneault, the coach for the Vancouver Canucks, stated. “The difference maker was obviously Schneider.” Vigneault had a lot of praise for his keeper and he was keen to emphasize the fact that the Canucks were definitely not at full strength for this match.

12 minutes after the opening goal, the Minnesota Wild managed to get one in. Sports scores.

It was Cal Clutterbuck from power play that managed to get the equalizer and it looked like we were in for a tight game. There was no other change on the scoreboard until the first period ended and the Wild were hopeful about their chances. However, it all went downhill for them in the second period.

Jannik Hansen was the man that put the Canucks back in the lead with a beautiful shot right before the 13th minute of the second period. By then, the Vancouver Canucks were dominating the field, creating more chances and that led to another goal after just seven minutes. This time it was Mikael Samuelsson that scored and it was 3-1 for the Canucks. Betting lines.

The Wild were not without retort but they just couldn’t get past Schneider. “It’s definitely frustrating. We’ve been playing so well,” Clayton Stoner stated. “It wasn’t a real fast game, the first period. I feel like the second half of the game, we dominated. We deserved a better fate for sure.”

Schneider’s statement about his performance was very modest and he emphasized on the merits of each o his team members. “Come playoff time, you have to be able to win in any building and not let things get to you,” Schneider said. “We had a pretty gritty effort, not the prettiest one, but I think everyone chipped in and did what we had to do.”

The Wild were particularly good in the third period but they still didn’t manage to get any past Schneider. And in the 19th minute came Ryan Kesler to make it 4-1 and effectively seal the game. Vegas odds.
