Stars

Hopefully, you didn't forget the Canucks have an early start time today. The Dallas Stars are in town for the first game of a busy week at Rogers Arena. By next Saturday, the Canucks will have played 4 games in 7 days, so getting a good start today might be a good idea.

Dallas is feeling good coming off a win in Edmonton so it will be a shame when the dominant Canucks own give them a run for their money. If you haven't checked NHL.com this morning, then you don't need to know the Stars are 5th in the NHL in scoring.

This might be harder than we thought.

Trying to find two teams on the opposite end of forgettable losing streaks isn't easy. Here we are, though. 

The Vancouver Canucks are riding high after an impressive victory over the New York Rangers to snap a nine-game losing skid; meanwhile, the Detroit Red Wings victory over the Philadelphia Flyers snapped a five-game slump of their own.

Two teams, renewed, re-energized and desperate to get back to normalcy. Unfortunately for the Canucks, it will take more than a handful of wins to do that. 

Two in a row is a good start.

The Canucks look to end their losing ways short of the double-digit mark. The last time they reached that painful milestone was in the Tom Renney era. I'd practically forgotten that was a thing.

Losers of the nine straight, the Canucks take their injured, downtrodden squad to Madison Square Gardens for a tilt with the New York Rangers. The Rangers, meanwhile, are taking the league by storm with their human wave offensive attack.

It's always a fun game at MSG and the Canucks have played some beauties in this building. Hopefully, there's another one in store.

No sleep 'til Brooklyn.

Has everyone calmed down since Saturday night's shenanigans in Toronto? I would certainly hope not. Especially in light of Nazem Kadri and Morgan Rielly getting off free for late, questionable and downright dangerous hits. I hate to pull out the tinfoil, but...

It's a new day, though. Here we are, ready to watch the Canucks take on the New York Islanders. The Islanders are in a relatively similar spot to the Canucks in terms of the standings, but I doubt they've anywhere near as many storylines.

You waited all week for this one. 

There are a handful of games we all look forward to every year and this one ranks pretty highly. Even Ryan Kesler came out of the dark room to see this one. Your Vancouver Canucks haven't scored all week and the Leafs are coming off back to back wins against the Sabres and Oilers.

As injuries mount for Vancouver, these games will get tougher and tougher to watch. Thankfully, at some point, the Canucks will start scoring again and maybe we can complain about which goaltender to start.

I dunno, I'm reaching for moral victories.
