Nobody in the Vancouver Canucks locker room is above criticism from head coach Rick Tocchet, and that extends to EP40.

In his post game press conference, Rick Tocchet said he was disappointed in his star forward's play on Wednesday night, and that he hasn't liked his game for the "last 3 or 4" outings.

I think he's gotta skate, he's gotta start skating a little bit... we'll get him going,
Tocchet said.

Pettersson has been held pointless in two straight games, with the Canucks beating the basement dwelling, Bedard-less Blackhawks on Monday night 2-0.


The "Lotto Line" as a whole struggled on Monday night, being outshot 5-1 at even strength by an inferior and beat up Chicago squad.

Pettersson's ice time was down nearly 4 minutes to his season average against the Blackhawks.

Pius Suter has picked up the slack during Pettersson's slump, with the Swiss centre scoring 4 goals in the last two games - but they'll need their superstar to get going again soon.
