The Vancouver Canucks fought their way back from a 2-0 deficit to tie the game up at 2-2 on Tuesday night in Edmonton. It appeared that the game would be heading to overtime but then Oilers defenceman Evan Bouchard stepped up and gave his team the 3-2 lead.

Edmonton would go on to win 3 to 2 and after the game, Vancouver Canucks head coach Rick Tocchet met with reporters and was not happy with the performance his team just gave.
Without naming specific players, Tocchet said that guys need to get going and that they can't have 5, 6 of 7 passengers during a game. Tocchet was also critical of the powerplay and that the team was making too many soft plays on the final goal by Bouchard.
"We need to get some guys going," says #Canucks HC Rick Tocchet. "You can't win with only 12 guys."

Tocchet added, "You can't win if you have 5, 6 or 7 passengers."

"It's playoff hockey. One of those guys can be the hero for us next game, but they've got to step it up.» #Canucks"

There are a handful of players on the Canucks who need to pick up their play next game if the team is to have any success in the rest the series and potentially beyond. After having pretty strong regular seasons, Filip Hronek and Elias Pettersson are two players who haven't been good whatsoever.
The Canucks will return home to Vancouver on Thursday night for Game 5 against McDavid, Draisaitl and the Oilers. Puck drop for Game 5 is set for 7 p.m. PT/10 p.m. ET on Sportsnet and Pacific.
