CANUCKS BANTER By Andrew Chernoff December 21, 2015
Vancouver (12-14-9) lost 5-4 in a shootout to Florida (18-12-4), suffering their 4rth loss on their current road trip that ends Tuesday against Tampa Bay.
The Panthers have won four straight games and are 12-0-1 when scoring at least three goals.
“We are not happy about a 5-4 loss,” Daniel Sedin told the Canucks website. “We can’t let them score four goals. We aren’t going to win a lot of games that way.”
Each team scored twice in the first period and twice in the second.
Canucks got goals from Jannick Hansen, his 10th; Sven Baertschi, his 4rth; Derek Dorsett, his 3rd; and Daniel Sedin, his 15th.
Vancouver was 0 for 2 on the power play and 2-4 on the penalty kill. Canucks were 38 for 79 in face-offs, a large improvement over previous games.
Florida out shot Vancouver 42-34 in the game including 8-1 in the overtime session.
