Kesler The Key…By Momma Gouche

 Until Ryan Kesler scored his spectacular goal at 7:28 of the third period, and turned the tempo of the game around Thursday night, the chances of the Vancouver Canucks pulling a win off … were doubtful. Their performance up to this point was less than stellar and their power plays were dismal. Christian Ehrhoff scored at 15:04 to put the Canucks up one, but Nashville Predators’, Joel Ward, tied the game at 19:18. Vancouver was fortunate to get out of the first period with no further scoring from the Predators, even though they had out-shot them 11-6. Out of nowhere … Alex Edler scores for Vancouver at 9:43 of the second. fortunately, Nashville made a couple of tactical errors on their 5 on 3 and the Canucks came out unscathed. It was a very chippy period and no further scoring. At 3:27 of the third Nashville’s, Cody Franson tied the game at 2-2. Kesler’s goal at 7:28 holds up through the period. The Predators pull Pikka Rinne in the dyeing moments and Henrik Sedin scores into the open net. Although the Canucks are up 3-1 in the series they will have to put in a better effort in their fifth game Saturday night if they are to be successful in end the series.
