CanucksArmy Postgame #14: Standing In the Shadows

Sometimes it pays to play a full 60 minutes. Overall, the Canucks played well enough to get the win tonight, but a flat start and a late goal from Tomas Tatar conspired to keep this one out of reach for the home team. That goal gave the slumping Tatar his 200th point, and wouldn’t you…
