Myers, who has now matched his own career-high of 5 2-goal games during his 11 seasons in NHL, said, “I have been around in the league for enough time to know when they are coming in bunches.”
The score board was opened by Myers on the 3:29 mark of the power play as he scored his 2nd goal of the season on a wrist shot of 55 feet that rushed into the net past the Calgary Flames goalie named David Rittich. This was also the 6th game in a row for Vancouver Canucks where they scored the first goal for the team.
Only three minutes after the first goal, Myers scored another same goal from the same distance and once more on a wrist shot as the puck went squeaking through pads of Flames’ goalie.
Tanner Pearson helped the Vancouver Canucks with his 2 goals as well as while the 5th one was scored by Jake Virtanen. With this win, the Vancouver Canucks are now at the 2d place of the Pacific Division moving past both Arizona Coyotes and Calgary Flames. While Canucks are tied for points with Coyotes, they still have one more game to play.
Myers said of his team’s performance in the game, “I really like our game tonight. Right from the get-go, we played really simple yet direct hockey. We played fast on the special teams and played direct. We are going to have to realize that these types of games are going to give us success.”
Up next, Vancouver Canucks will host a game against Chicago this Thursday for their first game of the 2-game homestand. As for Flames, they will host a game for Chicago too on Tuesday night.
