That was a great hockey game. Maybe it’s because I’ve been watching bottom-feeder hockey all season, but it was a nice change to watch a pretty good team play a really good team. As the commentators noted time and again, it felt like a playoff game.

Game Day Recon #56 - Flames @ Canucks
It's going to be a fairly unproductive day across our great country, as we celebrate Hockey Day in Canada.
Today features 3 all-Canadian match-ups, with tonight final game features the league-leading Canucks hosting the surging Flames.
As Badger Bob Johnson used to say, "It's a great day for hockey."

After last night's loss to the Anaheim Ducks, and after I picked myself off the floor from laying in the fetal position, sucking my thumb, I thought about the Canucks potential playoff opponents. Ok, I may not have been curled up on the floor, but last night's loss did get me thinking...
If you are the Canucks, who would you least like to face in the playoffs - the Ducks or the Blackhawks?

Game Day Recon #55 - Ducks @ Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks got some good news about Keith Ballard's injury last night, if you can call it good. The hip-checking defenseman will not be lost for the season. Instead he is expected to miss 3-4 weeks with a knee sprain.
So tonight begins a long stretch with Ballard and Edler on the blue line. And they face a stiff test to start this Ballard-less month as the Anaheim Ducks visit Rogers Arena.
