I thought Vancouver looked just as dominant in that 1st part of the first as they had been earlier in the year.
The difference....they are doing their best Cougs impression. Once the tying goal was scored they sagged and couldn't get it back. Their were a couple of occassions where the Cougs had trouble clearing but Vancouver wasn't able to establish a strong forecheck most of the second and third.
And for those of you who say the team has no future up front after this year Tyrell, Fuller and Deagle were outstanding. Gardner had one of the best games of his entire Cougar career and is making a case to return as a 20 year old.
I think the Cats will play even better tonight. Mihalik had a rough game on the back end and will be better tonight. They'll have to be, because one thing is a given, Hay HATES to lose.
