It’s eminently enjoyable for a hockey fan when everything goes well for your team.  Last night, everything went well for the Canucks.

The Canucks had a four-minute power play to begin the game and briefly had a 5-on-3 at the back end of it, allowing them to get on the board first.

Alexander Frolov had a penalty shot but had to overcome deteriorated ice conditions nearing the end of the first period.  Not surprisingly, the puck awkwardly bounced off of his stick when he tried to go to the backhand. 

With the game 1-0 instead of the game being 1-1, the Canucks proceeded to make it 2-0 before the expiration of the first on a fantastic shot by Mason Raymond.

The Sedins finally put up some points again. 

Kyle Wellwood continued to demonstrate why he is worth having around, if only for his appearances on the power play.

Roberto Luongo is back to his old self.

Taylor Pyatt scored.  Yes, you heard that right.
