October 27, 2009: First goal!

Not a great result for Vancouver, but Mathieu got his first goal as a Canuck in the 5-4 lose to Detroit. It was also his career power play goal #100. He finished the game as a -1, and had 2 shots on goal in 17:52 of ice time. He also had a wicked shot that was brilliantly stopped by goalie Jimmy Howard with just seconds to go in the game.

Says Mathieu of the game:

(how awesome is it that he can conduct a coherent interview while ON the exercise bike? Most of the time I'm in the gym I'm trying to simply not die)

Game summary: Schneider (H.Sedin, Bieksa), 5:05 of 3rd (PP).
