      It had to happen eventually. The Canucks finally lost in regulation time under their new skipper, Bruce Boudreau, falling to the Panthers 5-2 in Florida.

      It came 10 days after the Canucks' last game, a 5-2 win in Seattle on New Year's Day.

      This leaves the Canucks at 8-1-1 under Boudreau, whose tenure has been marked with unanticipated breaks due to outbreaks of COVID-19 in the NHL.

      Games have also been postponed due to attendance restrictions in Canadian cities.

      Jason Dickinson and Juho Lammikko scored the two Canucks goals in Florida, with Sam Reinhart scoring twice for Florida.

      The Panthers also had goals from Aaron Ekblad, Aleksander Barkov, and Maxim Mamin.

      Sadly for Canucks fans, Florida snapped J.T. Miller's nine-game points streak.

      Coincidentally, the Canucks' loss came after the team posted a video of Boudreau wearing a microphone during the pre-game practice.

      The loss leaves the Canucks in seventh place in the Pacific Division with a 16-16-3 record.
