Canucks-Sharks period by period

I'm going to try something a little different for tonight's game against the Sharks. After each period I'm going to rate the Canucks' performance in several different categories in report card fashion. After the game I'll average out the ratings to hopefully give you more of an idea of how the team performed. Ratings will be based on my own opinion. If you disagree in any shape or form, you can let me know in the comments section.
Since all eyes are on Sundin, I'll include his general performance in a stat category as well.


Goaltending- 99% (flukey Blake goal off Kesler's skate)
Defensive play- 99%
Offensive play- 100%
Power play efficiency- 60%
Penalty Killing efficiency- 99%
Discipline- 20%
Shots for- 100%
Shots against- 60%
Ambition/effort- 100%
Physical game- 50%
Sundin's performance- 95%


Goaltending- 30% (lousy goal let in by Sanford)
Defensive play- 95%
Offensive play- 90%
Power play efficiency- 10% (no goals on a 4 minute PP)
Penalty Killing efficiency- 100%
Discipline- 95%
Shots for- 95%
Shots against- 95% (only 7 shots for the Sharks)
Ambition/effort- 100%
Physical game- 60%
Sundin's performance- 85%


Goaltending- 40% (Sanford just didn't get it done.)
Defensive play- 40%
Offensive play- 40%
Power play efficiency- 0%
Penalty Killing efficiency- 50%
Discipline- 30% (Mats...what were you doing? 2 minors in the 3rd)
Shots for- 10%
Shots against- 10%
Ambition/effort- 70%
Physical game- 30%
Sundin's performance- 20%


Goaltending- 56%
Defensive play- 78%
Offensive play- 76%
Power play efficiency- 23%
Penalty Killing efficiency- 83%
Discipline- 48%
Shots for- 68%
Shots against- 55%
Ambition/effort- 90%
Physical game- 47%
Sundin's performance- 67%

This ratings thing is kind of tough. It needs to be simplified.
Sundin looked better tonight, scoring a goal and 4 shots. But he took 2 penalties in the 3rd. One of them led to Marleau scoring a PP goal..the winning goal.
To me, a lot of them blame falls on Sanford tonights as he really wasn't good enough at all.

PJ Stock needs to be fired.

It seems like a miracle that we are tied with the Sharks going into the third. O'Brien gets a penalty and I am ready to murder him, but then he steps out of the box and makes a beauty pass to Sedin, bingo bango it's a tie game.

We need these two points.

Good penalty kill early in the third.

Where the hell was this effort last night?

I disagree on PJ Stock. He compiles hi-lites for Sat night games and actually has some amusing comments.
Its all about entertainment, and at least Stock shows some other aspects of the game (fights, hits, cheap shots) which usually arent shown.

ps. Sundin is one of the better Nucks tonight.

He's such a cheeseball though.

Nice to hear the fans chanting a little bit. I think we're going to bag one in the next couple minutes.

14 minutes left, 2-2 tie. This is where Demitra, Kesler, Bernier, Raymond has to step up and deliver. Even if we make the playoffs, we arent going anywhere til we start to get some clutch scoring from other than Sedins.

Demitra especially...

Edler with the rocket. How is it possible that with all our technology they still haven't developed a pane of plexiglass that won't crack or smash?

Tep, Henrick stops moving his feet, and it results in a 2-1 rush the other way, and Sundin gets a penalty.

Good grief this team is frustrating.

It looked to me like the slingshot move that Bert used to use to propel himself.

As San jose scores...

Frustrating, or Most Frustrating?

Trade Mats for picks and prospects. The sundin experiment is a failure! :-)

"Vancouver has played well" Hughson.

See, I think they have played well enough to earn a trip to OT. To win though outright, they havent done enough as usual.

Makes me wish for the trap and steady team of a few years back. It wasnt so long ago when the Nucks were impossible to score on in the late 3rd.

Sanford sucks! Had Barbie been in net we could have won that one. Geezus

I'm seriously worried now. It seems like the offense is at the point again where EVERY goal seems like the last one they will score.

Throw in Edler and Bieksa fightin the puck and the obvious goalie issues. And it all adds up to trouble.

And again, last nights 2 wasted points just kills us.

Ah, i'm takin a break. No hockey for a while, to stressful.

Just wait. Luongo will solve all the'll see. He may return next week!

Sundin is a cancer in the dressing room.

No he was a cancer in the penalty box

Sundin is o.k.Wait a little and he will show the best of him

You bet. When he is half at his best he's already a kickass player.
And now that I think of it, those 2 calls on him in the 3rd were bunk.
The first one wasn't interference because the guy stepped in front of him. The high stick was a good call, but it was theresult of Mats backchecking and avoiding a 2 on 1
