Vancouver Suffers Second Regulation Road Loss Of Season

Sven Baertschi got the Canucks out in front of Ottawa, with helpers from Radim Vrbata and Bo Horvat, then the Senators tied the game up on a power play goal by Bobby Ryan less than 6-minutes later. The Senators scored the go ahead goal, and only goal in the second period to make it 2-1 after two periods.

In the third period, Henrik Sedin was called for a penalty and for the second time in the game, the Senators with 2-seconds left scored a power play goal to give themselves a two-goal cushion with less than two minutes left in the hockey game.

With Ryan Miller pulled, and a power play of their own in the final minute of play, Alex Edler scored to make it 3-2 with 24-second left but the Canucks were unable to score the tying goal before time ran  out.

The loss was the Canucks 10th one-goal loss of the season, and 2nd loss in regulation play on the road this season. Vancouver’s power play goal in the third period ended their power play slump of 0 for 18. Ottawa’s two power play goals on four opportunities continued Vancouver’s struggles with their penalty killing.
