The Canucks have touched down in Philadelphia for a date with the Flyers. Both teams split the season series last year with each team winning at home. The Flyers are just above the playoff bar in 7th, while the Canucks are looking to get back in the hunt with a win. A meaningful Canucks/Flyers game is in the cards tonight and you can expect both teams to bring everything they have.
This means 12 forwards and 6 defensemen (you know who you are).

No more streak to preserve so the Canucks can go back to winning games with zero pressure. Vancouver goes into Nashville a point back of the Kings for 8th and 2 points ahead of the Predators who also aren't in the playoff picture. This isn't going to be a game circled on the calendar by either team but who does that anymore, really?

These guys, again?
It's the Canucks turn to go on the road and give the Flames the
home ice advantage business in a different barn other than Rogers Arena. Let's get the obvious stuff out of the way first: Vancouver can extend their win streak to seven this evening by beating the Flames in any fashion.
Things are starting to click everywhere for the Canucks, and there may be some sort of renaissance happening where this team gets "officially" good. Injuries, however, are creeping up on Vancouver and it could spell the end of the Cinderella run.
Canucks/Flames, round two... TONIGHT!

The red-hot Calgary Flames come back to Vancouver to battle the Canucks in what we can only imagine will be a test of supreme strength and skill. Calgary, having won four of their last five games including the pre-Christmas drubbing, take on a Canucks team who themselves are white hot by winning their last five straight games.
With the Blue Jackets losing last night, the Canucks now have the longest win streak in the NHL. Like any of us were surprised.
Bring on the Flames!

The Vancouver Canucks go for five wins in a row tonight against the Arizona Coyotes and I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty freaking excited! They've already equalled their best streak of the year at four games but this is uncharted territory for Willie Desjardins' crew.
Thankfully, the Coyotes are in a funk so bad even the NFL's Cleveland Browns are spotting them a lead (you know, if you could play teams in different sports). Arizona has lost seven straight and the Canucks have never looked better.
