Update: Nope, no breathe of fresh air. Instead, the Islanders stormed back for a stunning 7-4 win, making Sedin’s moment seem like a relic in just a period. Read more about that here.
It’s odd – but maybe also oddly fitting – that the Vancouver Canucks have begun to show life since Eddie Lack was beaten on an embarrassing center-ice goal. As of this writing, Lack hasn’t allowed a goal since that point, but that’s not the only promising sign for the Canucks, as Henrik Sedin scored a long-awaited goal on Monday against the New York Islanders:
That’s the 33-year-old’s first goal since Dec. 14 and his first point since Jan. 10.
It’s important for Canucks fans to temper their excitement, as this breakthrough might not be a bigger picture turnaround since they just beat the Calgary Flames and hope to hold on against the Islanders. Still, for a team that’s searching for optimism, this is a breathe of fresh air.
