In a game that ended up a loss, there were quite a few bright spots in the game
1. Chris Tanev
2. Sergei Shirokov's first NHL goal:

I was pretty rah-rah about Shirokov last year, so it's nice to see him play so well tonight. But I'm quick to jump on the boat of speedy young players only to have them make me frustrated 10 games later when they stop producing (see J Tambellini). So I'll reserve the judgement on how good Shirokov actually is until I see a few more games of his, but that goal tonight was pretty, non?

So Canucks back home. Finally ended that roadtrip that really didn't go so well for how well you'd think a top team of the NHL should play. Next game Thursday night against the San Jose Sharks.
