Canucks Army Postgame: Eddie PaveLack

The Canucks looked to get back to their winning ways today, visiting the Winnipeg Jets for a matinee game with serious playoff implications. The Jets, of course, are fighting tooth and nail to hold on to that second and final Wild Card berth in the Western Conference. The Canucks, well, they're just trying to add to their second place cushion. 

Vancouver didn't do themselves many favours. They looked disinterested at times and it reflected in their defensive zone coverage or lack thereof for the better part of today's contest. Eddie Lack didn't turn in the greatest performance either, letting the Jets put five past him, including a few McSoftys. When it was all said and done, the Canucks dropped today's game 5-4.
