    Crawford says defence OK

     UNIONDALE, N.Y. (CP) -- Asked about his team's poor coverage in their end, Canucks head coach Marc Crawford said: "You're not barking up the right tree."
     "Last year everyone complained that we weren't getting enough shots. ... Not everyone on this team is suited to play that grinding style," he told the Vancouver Province.
     "You can't have it both ways. If we concentrated on just being a bunch of slugs on defence, then we'd be a team that gets 15 shots a game. We'd have a lot of unhappy players and fans."
     So what's going to be done about the 22 goals the Canucks have surrendered in their last five games?
     "Everyone has to execute a bit better," said Crawford, whose club plays the New York Islanders tonight. "We want to be a team that's tough to penetrate against. You can do that (and generate a lot of offence), but it takes commitment."
