The Vancouver Canucks fell to the Edmonton Oilers in Game 4 of their second round series on Tuesday night and now, each team has won twice as we head into Game 5 tomorrow night.

Vancouver Canucks head coach Rick Tocchet met with reporters following the loss last night and called out Swedish forward Elias Pettersson, saying he needs to get it going amid his struggles over the last couple of months.
"He needs to get going, I don't know what else to say." Tocchet said.

Elias Pettersson's struggles have been going on for nearly two months now and not having him at the top of his game is not only frustrating for the Canucks, who desperately need him to play a big role, but also for himself as he wants to be helping out the team.
In Pettersson's last 23 games dating back to March 21st against the Montreal Canadiens, he's only recorded two goals. April 10th against the Arizona Coyotes and Game 2 against the Edmonton Oilers last Friday are the only two goals he's scored since March 21st. For a franchise player like Elias Pettersson and how important he is to the team, it's unacceptable and like Rick Tocchet said last night, they need him to get going.
The Sundsvall, Sweden native will look to turn things around on Thursday night in Game 5 at Rogers Arena as the Canucks will try to take a 3-2 series lead over the Edmonton Oilers.
