Samuelsson’s a Swede surprise
Had it been Christian Ehrhoff at the point and not Daniel Sedin, Mikael Samuelsson might have gone to the net for a rebound.
But since Ehrhoff was in front of the crease, screening Jonathan Quick, and it was a Sedin with the puck at the blueline, Samuelsson knew he had to be ready for anything.
So when Daniel’s slap-pass arrived, Samuelsson turned his blade at the perfect angle to redirect the puck past Quick and pull the Canucks even at 3-3 at 7:29 of the third period in Wednesday’s pivotal Game 4.
“I’m looking to do a little more with them, I guess,” Samuelsson said about being moved to the Sedin line for the third period.
