There's something appropriate about Kyle Wellwood tearing it up and scoring the opening goal last night. Poetic justice, perhaps?
We actually outshot the Canucks 30-15. It wasn't long ago that we weren't outshooting anybody, and now we regularly outshoot our opponents. When your starter only makes 5 saves on 9 shots, outshooting the other team isn't nearly enough to secure two points.
As I exit this recap and start preparing for one cold Santa Claus Parade, let me just say this: As mediocre as our record is, we are still ahead of the Sens. That, in essence, is my goal this season.
