Okay, so, maybe they won't quite go 82-0. Maybe they'll even lose a game or two or thirty-eight along the way. Maybe they'll lose 7-0 to Arizona on a rainy Tuesday in mid- January, losing Henrik Sedin and Dan Hamhuis to injury. Maybe they'll go on a 10-game losing streak and miss the playoffs entirely. But for right now, the Vancouver Canucks are perfect. As of Wednesday, October 8th, 2014, Vancouver leads the NHL in points and has yet to lose a game . They won't be perfect for long, and we don't even know if they'll be good for long, so we might as well enjoy the possibility of a perfect 2014-2015 season while we can.
Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Calgary Flames was far from perfect. The defense made some sloppy turnovers, the team sat way too far back in the third period, and the Sedins got buried in possession, but a win now is worth the same as a win in March or April or May. What's important is that they win 44 more games over the next 8 months.
Read past the jump for a recap on what was a night of many firsts for the 2014-2015 Vancouver Canucks.

Hello there fellow loyal soldiers of Canucks Army! Allow me to introduce myself: my name is Ashley March but you can call me March or Marchy, but don’t call me late for dinner!
Great, a corny lame joke to start off your introduction. Jesus Ashley, first impressions are crucial.
Anyway, I write words about hockey on the interwebz for, well, what I hope is more than my own enjoyment. I started my own blog, won an award for said blog, and now I find myself here on the Pacific side of the hockey world, which is something new for me considering I live an hour away from and in between Ottawa and Montreal. I know. I can feel your pity already.
“But if she lives on the East Coast and gets stuffed with more Habs, Sens and Leafs news than Miley Cyrus, how is she ever going to write about our beloved Canucks?!”
Oh mama knows, child. Mama knows her hockey.

HOCKEY STARTS TOMORROW! I CAN'T PUT MY ARMS DOWN!
It's that time of year again. It's cold, foggy, the beer is better and my Filipino neighbors are queuing up Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You". Smell that? It's hockey season, folks. Like Tag-Team, I'm hear to check it to wreck it, so lets begin. I'm back doing headshots. More after the jump.

Here at Canucks Army, we have a few activities we consistently enjoy: writing analysis on the Canucks, looking at fancystats, and occasionally even watching a real hockey game. Sometimes we even leave our mother’s basement to attend a real hockey game in person.
This past weekend, the Utica Comets played two pre-season games both against the Adirondack Flames (AHL Affiliate of the Calgary Flames). The game on Friday night was in a smaller community arena in Rome, NY rather than their home in Utica, so after work I jumped in my car and headed to upstate New York where I had press access to this game to watch the Comets as they try and figure out their roster.
Read past the jump because I watched this game.
