It's not often when the opposing team can come in to your home barn, score three goals to your two, and you still come out with the win.

It's a match up of the two biggest losers in the NHL tonight on Hockey Night in Canada, as the Canucks (0-4-1 in their last 5) take on the Calgary Flames (0-7-0 in their last 7). It's a good chance for Vancouver to get back in the win column, and also a good chance to stay clear of the wild card race. The bountiful times in November are long gone, as the Canucks sit just two points ahead of the fifth place Flames in the Pacific division.

Some Vancouver Canucks prospect news broke this afternoon when it was announced that G Thatcher Demko had been traded... in the WHL. The 19-year old netminder previously had his junior rights held by the Spokane Chiefs, but was dealt to the Calgary Hitmen. So does this mean that Demko is leaving the NCAA and coming north?
