After another undermanned, underwhelming, and only one power play chance (I am not counting those 13 seconds in OT, even if the NHL does), an interesting picture was posted by Dan Murphy on Twitter:

Looks to be the Canucks have created a ‘MVP’ of the game reward, which looks to be a Superman shirt and headband . This is common-practice with a number of teams in the league, but the first time I can remember the Canucks doing such a thing.
This is the type of bonding, and camaraderie that Mike Gillis and John Tortorella preached prior to leaving on the 7 game roadtrip.
The Canucks are currently 4-1-1 on their road-trip, and finish tomorrow in St Louis.
