Once again, a frustrated team at the tail-end of a one-sided loss increased physicality and triggered some fisticuffs.
In Game 2, it was the Flames, and Deryk Engelland narrowly avoided suspension. In Game 3, it was the Canucks, and we'll see what happens with Alex Burrows. He was assessed a game misconduct for instigating a fight with Kris Russell late in the third period following a big hit to Johnny Gaudreau (which he was already being penalized for).

They'll play, you know they'll play... Are we pulling that one out too soon? Definitely.
Despite missing the morning skate, Vancouver Canucks defensemen Alex Edler and Kevin Bieksa appear as if they'll be in the lineup for Sunday night's crucial Game 3 of the preliminary round series between Vancouver and the Calgary Flames, according to TSN's Farhan Lalji.

Vancouver Canucks defenseman Alex Edler and Kevin Bieksa weren't on the ice for the game-day skate at the Scotiabank Saddledome and should be considered game-time decisions, Willie Desjardins told reporters.
The Canucks only have one spare defender with them in Calgary, Ryan Stanton, so presumably at least one of Edler or Bieksa will play. Odds are they'll both be in the lineup.

You can't win em all, and it turns out if you're Buffalo you literally can't win anything. But YOU have won and your reward is another First Star, Worst Star!

SERIES TIED 1-1
EDDIE, EDDIE, EDDIE!!! Now THAT was playoff hockey! The Canucks buried any memories from Game 1 and absolutely dominated the Flames from the opening puck drop. The series now shifts to the
wonderful city of Calgary for Game 3 this evening. The Flames are already playing hurt, and the hurts are attached to some of their VIPs (Very Insignificant Players....as far as we're concerned).
The Canucks brought the house in Game 2 and proved they can take this series over if they continue that style of play. Ronalds Kenins scored his first ever playoff goal and it was a big one. He brought the murders, but so did half of the 'Nucks as well. The brouhaha that ended Game 2 will probably make the Flames think twice about doing that again. Derek Dorsett, anyone?
