Be honest, Vancouver Canucks fans: if I had asked you before last night’s game to pick one team to be shutout, who would you have picked?
Well, I would’ve chosen the Jets, of course! I always have faith in my favourite team, especially in their elite defensive abilities.
Jokes aside, I don’t think many people will dispute that the Canucks played their best defensive game of the season yesterday, resulting in a 4-0 win against Winnipeg.
