- If Kassian can play like this on a somewhat-regular basis the Canucks have got a gem. Kid looks good this year!

The seven goals the Canucks surrendered to the Ducks six nights ago was the second-most they have ever given up in a season-opening game in team history. The most goals they have ever surrendered in a season-opening game is nine to the Pittsburgh Penguins in a 9-5 loss to kick off the 1976.77 season.
The seven goals scored by the Ducks also tied a Canucks team record for most goals they've ever surrendered to Anaheim in a single game. Anaheim had previously scored seven goals against Vancouver on two other occasions before this year's season-opening thumping.
