Distracted by an unshakable case of the blahs, I missed parts of a really amazing game from Mathieu. I did tune in to the CBC broadcast via Center Ice just in time to catch the announcer dude proclaim that this was "the 40 years young" defenseman's "best game as a Canuck." He made sure he was on the game summary a lot, by picking up two penalties and registering a goal and an assist. He came away a +2 after 15:22 of total ice time in the Canuck's 8-2 bludgeoning of the Avalanche in Colorado. I'm staying up late now to catch the replay (after I catch the replay of the stunning Penguins win after tying the game with a second left in the third period).

Game summary:
(hooking), 3:16 of 2nd; (slashing), 18:27 of 2nd; Schneider (Samuelsson, Burrows), 8:22 of 2nd; Glass (Schneider, Bieksa), 19:45 of 3rd.
