Another was Vancouver's power play, which was 2-for-4 after going 0-for-12 during the losing skid.But the biggest was the momentum the Canucks could build if they can get another win against the Nashville Predators on Tuesday (8 p.m. ET; BSSO, SNP, ESPN+, NHL LIVE) in the finale of their stretch of nine consecutive road games."The confidence will definitely be brewing," Boudreau said. And there's going to be stretches during the last half of the year that we'll be at home for a while, and maybe we can make up a lot of ground like we did when I first started getting here."Boudreau's start with Vancouver since replacing Travis Green as coach on Dec. 5 couldn't have gone better.The Canucks (17-18-3) won their first seven games and were 8-0-1 in their first nine, but following a nine-day break because of postponements related to COVID-19 and the attendance restriction in Canada cities, they lost their rhythm.It didn't help that their first three games after that break were on the road against three of the NHL's top teams -- the Florida Panthers (5-2 loss on Tuesday), Tampa Bay Lightning (4-2 loss on Thursday) and Carolina Hurricanes (4-1 loss on Saturday) -- but Boudreau did his best to keep the players' spirits up."Bruce has been very positive and has really tried to encourage the group to stay positive," Vancouver defenseman Tyler Myers said. There were some great potential stars on the Canucks, and that's why I thought it would be perfect for a person like me."Vancouver was 8-15-2 when Boudreau was hired but had key players like Petterson, who won the Calder Trophy as the NHL's rookie of the year in 2018-19, Miller, captain Bo Horvat, defenseman Quinn Hughes and goalie Thatcher Demko.Although Pettersson has only scored 19 points (eight goals, 11 assists) in 38 games this season, perhaps his two goals Sunday were a sign of good things to come in the second half."It seems like he's getting a turnaround and maybe getting some other philosophy in their system and stuff like that and getting people going," said Backstrom, who was a rookie when Boudreau was hired by the Capitals in 2007.
