Looking to build on their hard fought, dominating victory that kicked off the weekend, Vancouver took the fight to Calgary playing the role of visitor in the most inhospitable "Sea of Red" - Or the "C of Red" if you're into that kind of thing. The environment was electric and the Flames play didn't lag far behind. Using the home crowd to fuel a second period rush, Calgary put their foot to the pedal and didn't let up.
Eddie Lack was peppered with shots, the Canucks D were under siege physically and the offense mustered almost nothing in the way of a decent scoring chance. When the dust settled, the boys in blue left tonight's contest losers of a 4-2 contest and down 2-1 in the series.

Once again, a frustrated team at the tail-end of a one-sided loss increased physicality and triggered some fisticuffs.
In Game 2, it was the Flames, and Deryk Engelland narrowly avoided suspension. In Game 3, it was the Canucks, and we'll see what happens with Alex Burrows. He was assessed a game misconduct for instigating a fight with Kris Russell late in the third period following a big hit to Johnny Gaudreau (which he was already being penalized for).

They'll play, you know they'll play... Are we pulling that one out too soon? Definitely.
Despite missing the morning skate, Vancouver Canucks defensemen Alex Edler and Kevin Bieksa appear as if they'll be in the lineup for Sunday night's crucial Game 3 of the preliminary round series between Vancouver and the Calgary Flames, according to TSN's Farhan Lalji.

Vancouver Canucks defenseman Alex Edler and Kevin Bieksa weren't on the ice for the game-day skate at the Scotiabank Saddledome and should be considered game-time decisions, Willie Desjardins told reporters.
The Canucks only have one spare defender with them in Calgary, Ryan Stanton, so presumably at least one of Edler or Bieksa will play. Odds are they'll both be in the lineup.

You can't win em all, and it turns out if you're Buffalo you literally can't win anything. But YOU have won and your reward is another First Star, Worst Star!
