John Tortorella wouldn’t go there because it’s too early to blame the officials. Maybe a hint though.

While the Vancouver Canucks coach is being rightfully lauded for again splitting up Henrik and Daniel Sedin — leading to the tying and winning goals Tuesday in Philadelphia — his ability to improve a 27th-ranked power play that has scored just twice in 20 chances is more daunting.

The Canucks drew one power play against the Flyers and aren’t doing enough to draw infractions. And drawing them means drawing the attention of the referees — a long-running saga between the Canucks and league officials.

The Canucks rank 20th in power-play opportunities but their aggressive forecheck and outmanning the opposition in the offensive zone are well-suited to getting more power plays.

“It’s not my call — it’s the refs’ call” Tortorella said Wednesday following practice in Philadelphia.

“I don’t think we’re being lazy we’re moving our feet out and we got stronger as game went on. Last night was not good. We had a couple of good [power-play] chances and couldn’t score.”

The Canucks scored on their first power play Oct. 3 in San Jose. The next one was two nights later against Edmonton and they drew six power plays in each of those games. In the last five they haven’t scored on just eight chances.

“It’s really tough right now because we’re getting one or two chances a game” said Canucks captain Henrik Sedin. “It’s going to come but one chance a game and you’re off a bit. Suddenly it doesn’t look good.”
