Kevin Bieksa prooving to be worth his weight in gold
My Third Star of the week Kevin Bieksa
Bieksa had a solid week with two assists against Colorado and generally good play against the Kings.
He got cut and bloodied up a bit, but he's a tough customer.
Bieksa has been solid all season, but there hasn't been a lot of really brilliant flashes. It might be nice for the Canucks to see a couple big plays from him to help swing games unexpectedly (ie the winning goal in game five against San Jose).
We are need a few flashes of brilliance from the defence this postseason, especially if Daniel is out for a while.
What's up with him right now exactly?
This "maintenance day" is looking like he'll be out all weekend
The Canucks will need Juice to be one of their best players in the playoffs if they want to go far. Nice to see Bieksa working towards playoff form with a few games remaining in the regular season.
So long as Hamhuis stays healthy....
Yepp. Life without Hamhuis gets far too exciting when Bieksa is running around without cover on the blue line.
