Canucks Put the Preds Behind

On Thursday night, the Canucks managed to complete the road team sweep in Nashville, as they beat the Predators, 4-2, taking a 3-1 lead in the series and they will head back to Vancouver to play Game Five.

It was a pretty big night for a few players in white on Thursday, as Ryan Kesler scored the winning goal and added a pair of assists for 4 points in the pool, while both Christian Ehrhoff and Henrik Sedin each potted a goal and 2 assists for 3-point efforts of their own.  Roberto Luongo was also a player of note, picking up 2 points in the win.

The Predators' Cody Franson was the only pool player on the home side to pick up 2 points in the loss.

This series will shift back to Vancouver with the Predators behind the 8-ball and we'll all see how well the Canucks do at putting their second opponent away, as they failed to do so convincingly in the first round.
