Canucks Army Postgame - Falling on Their Own Sword

That's Offside!
January 30 2015 11:13PM

For a brief moment, it appeared as if a flaw had appeared in Tim Murray's master plan. His Sabres, victors of 13 consecutive greatest tank battles, had somehow found themselves ahead 1-0 in the 1st period against the Vancouver Canucks. But General Ted Nolan is nothing if not resilient. He rolled out his armoured division in full power at the start of the second period, ensuring that the fantastic streak of tanking prowess would remain intact.

The Canucks dominated the Sabres for rest of the night, coming away with a 5-2 win. Read past the jump for a recap.

Canucks Army GDT #47 - Canucks vs. Sabres

That's Offside!
January 30 2015 01:18PM


There are no two ways about this, so let's just get this right out of the way: the Buffalo Sabres are the worst team to be assembled in the past decade and are tanking for Connor McDavid so brazenly that they're literally already having McDavid play home games in Buffalo's rink. They played and lost to the Edmonton Oilers last night, and the Canucks have been resting since Tuesday's 4-0 loss to the Anaheim Ducks. This is as close as guaranteed win night as there is in the NHL (except if you're the San Jose Sharks that is), and the Canucks should be plenty motivated to win one for Ryan Miller anyways.
