It's been a few days since we all demanded that all the Millionaires jerseys be burned in the middle Library Square. Losing to the Avs wasn't fun and didn't help the Canucks efforts to make the playoffs. Today is a new day and a new opponent. The Dallas Stars are in town on the second half of a back to back (heard this before?) after losing to the Edmonton Oilers 4-0.
Dallas actually was flying last night but it was just another example of not being able to buy a goal. The Canucks know that one all too well. So tonight, its the latest edition of the biggest game of the season, its Hockey Night in Canada and a win would be nice.

Just one day removed from the 100th anniversary of this city's last Stanley Cup, the Canucks looked to honour their Millionaire predecessors by donning their maroon regalia in front of the Rogers Arena faithful. The jerseys may have looked great, but that's about all the Canucks had going for them tonight. They were out-shot mightily, surrendering 30-shots to the Colorado Avalanche before the 30-minute mark in tonight's contest.
While they mounted a late push in the third, it wasn't enough to overcome the Av's mountainous lead. The Canucks would lose this one 4-1.
Lets break it down on the other side of the jump.
