The last time we played these clowns, Bo Horvat had himself a game. This time, however, the Hurricanes are looking for their 5th straight win. We all know what being a team's 6th straight win looks like so maybe the Canucks can flip the script. It's game two of the eastern road trip and any kind of points would be welcome...like any. Go Canucks Go!

I'm still kind of speechless at the way that game against the Panthers ended. I mean, it's one thing for players to chirp each other on the ice, but that commentary from an official team broadcaster was something else.

The topic du jour is health, with many mainstays in the Canucks lineup set to return to their rightful spot. First on the list is Luca Sbisa, who is returning from a hand injury sustained blocking a shot.
Vancouver's defence has struggled in the Suisse defenders absence, although I'd caution against conflating correlation with causation. Regardless, I know the people running this team couldn't be happier to get their prized project back in the lineup, as they feel Sbisa adds an element of toughness and pugnacity otherwise lacking from their blue line.
There's definitely an argument to be made that Sbisa doesn't belong in the Canucks top-six, but the stark reality is that we all know he'll be there when healthy. Which begs the question: who comes out?
