Vancouver (4-6-1=9 pts) played the second game of a 6-game road trip last night at Canadian Tire Centre against Eastern conference rivals, Ottawa Senators (7-3-0=14 pts), losing 1-0.

It was the seventh consecutive loss for the Canucks after starting the season with four wins. Adding salt to the wound, Vancouver has been shut out in 4 of their last 5 games; and have started their road trip with consecutive shut out losses.

Canucks starting goalie Jacob Markstrom, stopped 23 of 24 shots in the game.

Markstrom, after 6 starts, has a 2.14 GAA and a .920 SV%. He is now 3-2-1 for the season.

Vancouver are now 0-3-1, on the road, and will be looking for their first road win of the season in Toronto on Saturday night.

Canucks are in 26th place in the NHL (tied with three other teams for 23rd); and are in 6th place in the Pacific division, with 9 points; 6 points behind the Oilers, 1 point ahead of the Arizona Coyotes.

Game Summary

In the first, there were no goals scored but both teams were determined to set the tone of the game, in a penalty filled period.

The Canucks played with an edge to get engaged in the game, not allowing the Senators to play their style of game. Canucks had 18 minutes and Senators 14 minutes of penalty time in the period.

In the second, the Senators would score on a Vancouver turnover, and a Markstrom poke check that failed. Mike Hoffman (2), unassisted, at 14:42, to make it 1-0 Ottawa.

In the third, Vancouver would not score, and neither would Ottawa, and the Canucks would be handed shut out losses in consecutive games to start their 6 game road trip, extending their losing streak to 7 games (0-6-1).

In brief:

  • Canucks tied 0-0 after one; behind 1-0 after two.
  • Vancouver outshot Montreal 27-24 in the game.
  • The Vancouver penalty kill was 4 for 4, with 1 shot against; 1 shot for; 0 shorthanded goals for; the power play was 0 for 2, with 2 shots for, 0 shots against and 0 shorthanded goals against.
  • Vancouver finished their 4th of 16 back-to-back series tonight. Canucks are 2-5-1 in back-to-back series this season.

Next Game: Nov 5, 2016: Canucks at Toronto @4:00 p.m. PST
