This week, the Canucks continued to turn heads as they extended their win streak to six games. Their recent success led them to momentarily hold a golden wild-card playoff spot, only to be overtaken by Los Angeles the next day. Nonetheless, it was another encouraging week for the Canucks as they won three of four games, with 21 year-old Bo Horvat leading leading the way.

For the second time in as many nights, the Canucks faced off against the Calgary Flames - but this time in Alberta. In spite of a much-improved effort compared to their dreadful winning performance the night prior, Vancouver fell 3-1 in a close and physical affair, ending its six-game win streak. Vancouver probably deserved a better fate on the evening, much as Calgary did 24 hours ago, but were unable to tie the game late. With a Kings win earlier in the day, the Canucks again fell out of the playoff picture in the Western Conference.

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!
