October 25, 2009: First game as a Canuck is in the books

My face is sore. I've seriously been smiling for the last 2.5 hours. Mathieu is back.

(from canucks.nhl.com)

He was without a point, and not any official shots on goals (he had some blasts, but they were wide of the net). Overall, he logged 14:51 of ice-time (2:18 of it on the power play) in the 2-0 Canucks win over Edmonton in Vancouver.

I flipped on the live feed of the post-game press coverage on the Canucks website just as Mathieu was being interviewed... while still riding the exercise bike to cool down. I wasn't prepared to take notes, so I only got one quote:
"Everything felt good out there"
Yeah, not a huge grab, but hey, it was cool to see him post-game.
