Canucks: Power-play expertise must be top priority in hiring new assistant coach!

The Kings have hired Newell Brown, a ‘Mr. Fix It’ power-play guru, after going 0-for-12 in the playoffs. The Canucks need an expert to prop up their PP presence, potency.

The Vancouver Canucks are the last club to pocket a post-season power-play goal against the high-octane Edmonton Oilers, who have killed a franchise record 27-consecutive man advantage opportunities to punch their ticket to the Stanley Cup Final against the Florida Panthers.

It was Elias Lindholm who struck twice, including the winner, in a 4-3 triumph on May 12 at Rogers Place. It gave the Canucks a 2-1 lead in the second-round NHL playoff series and belief they had all the tools to advance to the Western Conference final.
