Avalanche

Happy New Years folks!

Your Vancouver Canucks are holders of a 3 game win streak and it feels pretty awesome! It's evident that there are still plenty of things to fix with this club but they're getting better results. Tonight, the Colorado Avalanche come to town sporting the worst record in the league.

This also means the Canucks probably won't be in on Nolan Patrick this year and with the Avalanche's season already in the dumps, the rumours of Matt Duchene and Gabriel Landeskog getting traded will once again start heating up.

I suppose Vancouver could use either of those guys.

The Canucks are the 3rd hottest team in the NHL right now after a sizzling 3-2 OT winner against the Ducks last night (Blue Jackets and Wild are the other two but you knew that). The Oilers are coming off a big win against Milan Lucic's old team, the Kings. It has the makings of a championship bout after the undercard is played (again, Jackets and Wild). 

I can't think of a better way to finish off 2016 but to read this action packed GDT and watch said game it is about. It's not the Flyers and I doubt the Canucks lose 8-0. The Canucks DO have to fly to Edmonton for this one so there's a chance the first period goes poorly because of the shock of being in Edmonton.

Ducks

The Canucks welcome play the Ducks this evening in Anaheim's second game of a back to back. Can Vancouver take the double dip and go into their New Year's Eve game on a hot streak? Loui Eriksson is back on the board, Ryan Miller just played an all-world game and Alex Edler just got another batch of sticks so this one is about to be lit as the kids say.

We might even get a 13 round shootout!

The Christmas break is over and your Vancouver Canucks welcome their good buddies, the Los Angeles Kings, to Rogers Arena. The Kings beat the Canucks in a shootout back in October and a lot has changed since then. Well, not really. 

There are injuries yet again to key Canucks players and the talk will lean towards who the Sedins will be playing with for the next month or so; might be a good time to put Loui Eriksson back there?

I sure hope Santa brought Willie Desjardins some sense to ice better line combinations because I felt like a lump of coal was coming before the break.

Let's play some hockey!

Quick turn around and the Canucks are in Calgary to play the Flames this evening. They probably won't even book a hotel today, just win and go home. Jannik Hansen stayed in Vancouver after taking a pretty ugly knee on knee hit against the Jets. Anton Rodin is making his much anticipated Canucks return. The Flames haven't played since Tuesday, so they've been looking for some game action.

The Canucks might be willing to live up to that type of play. 

Merry Christmas
