Remember yesterday when the Vancouver Canucks said that Ryan Miller wasn't injured enough to miss out on Tuesday's game?
Markstrom starts vs. Lightning; Miller should be fine, #Canucks will not recall anyone. Maintenance day for Higgins.— Vancouver Canucks (@VanCanucks) December 21, 2015
Yeah, they may have spoken a little bit too soon...
#Canucks recalling Joe Cannata, Ryan Miller will not back-up tonight, says coach.— Vancouver Canucks (@VanCanucks) December 22, 2015

With a must-need win behind the Canucks against the Detroit Red Wings, the Canucks are out of the basement and back in a playoff spot in the Pacific Division.
Oh, wait... I forgot to mention. The Pacific is terrible, so they're still in danger of falling back into the basement.
How about that win, though, eh?

With forward Henrik Sedin out, the Vancouver Canucks are running short on offensive options.
Brandon Sutter is out injured already, and now Sedin could be missing for a chunk of time. The Canucks have dropped from a playoff spot to sixth in the Pacific Division, and they've gone 2-6-2 in their last ten games - the worst record over that period in not only their division, but the NHL at large.
That calls for desperate measures, so the Canucks are doing desperate things: on Friday morning, just ahead of the roster freeze, the club recalled Linden Vey.

Tonight, I did something special.
That's right, fans of the Army! I got to witness Luca Sbisa earning himself two primary assists from just a few rows above ice level in Glendale, Arizona.
What a time to be alive, my friends.
I wrote last night's recap as well, so I won't give you guys too much of a tongue-lashing for the fact that Vancouver almost saw yet another game go into overtime that once boasted a pretty cushy lead. Instead, let's focus on the ups (and downs) of this particular game itself.
