Scoreless Drought Dogs Canucks

It has been a long, and miserable season for the Vancouver Canucks.

Luckily for all of us, it is almost coming to an end, even if it is ending ugly too.

The Canucks once again fell to the Winnipeg Jets Tuesday night at Rogers Arena, being shutout for the 3rd straight game.

The game was even at 0-0 all the way to the third when Adam Lowry put Winnipeg ahead 2:30 into the third period, and Mark Scheifele netted an empty goal at 19:37 of the period to put the game to bed.

Remember the last time the Canucks scored? No? I don’t blame you.

The last time Vancouver scored was the first period in a 3-1 loss against the Colorado Avalanche on March 16. Vancouver has scored three goals during a five-game losing streak.

Canucks goaltender Jacob Markstrom stopped Chris Thorburn’s chance early in the third period, but Lowry picked up the rebound, wheeled behind the net and stuffed his sixth goal past Markstrom on a backhanded wraparound to put Winnipeg ahead 1-0.

Ondrej Pavelec stopped all 28 shots, and in the process got his 17th career shutout.

In the loss Jacob Markstrom made 47 saves.

Prior to the game, Daniel Sedin called out his teammates for a lack of effort, and in tonights game, they played with effort, but they just could not get the result they needed.

Up next: The Canucks square off against the Nashville Predators Thursday with puck drop at 5:00pm.
