How the Canucks lost to Buffalo yesterday still boggles me; clutch time and no one was took charge as the game winner went in. Thankfully, that game is done and a new one starts today. Vancouver makes stop # 2 on their roadie and they face former appointed #1 Cory Schneider. He's a cool dude. The rest of the Pacific division is starting to catch up so it would be wise to come away with 2 points.

Vancouver Canucks fans are eagerly awaiting the return of Jacob Markstrom. The 25-year-old netminder looked very good in the pre-season but suffered an unfortunate hamstring injury just before opening night. It's taken a few weeks for him to recover, but this week, the club assigned him to the Utica Comets on a conditioning stint. Last night was his first game, and he gave up four goals on thirty-five shots. Panic inducing? Unsurprising? Let's take a look at the goals and find out!

The Canucks kicked off their seven-game road trip with an early game in Buffalo. This marked Ryan Miller's first return to the First Niagara Center since being traded in early 2014. Miller received genuine cheers from the home crowd after making an impressive save on Ryan O'Reilly in the first and was the subject of a touching video tribute that covered everything from spectacular poke checks to a Cody Hodgson haircut.
Today's contest was the first time the Canucks met Jack Eichel, who is very good at hockey. Eichel left the game with his first career assist and his second one, too!

Ryan Miller has returned! Oddly enough, he'll be starting for both teams today. This might get weird. This is the Canucks first look at rookie star and 2nd overall pick that DOESN'T have a broken clavicle, Jack Eichel. We have a college kid that wasn't taken 2nd overall and wasn't even taken in the first round. We call him Ben Hutton and he's so great. So Jack, just..you know what, you're not Cody Hodgson and that's ok. Let's play this game!

As many of you know, I don't actually live in Vancouver. Far from it, actually; I live in everyone's worst nightmare, Toronto. But I visit every so often, and I always struggle to leave. I love the people, the scenery, and I also love that the weather isn't so polarizing. Toronto struggles with that; last year we had our high 30's-low 40's summer days, and -40 at points in the winter. Vancouver stays relatively consistent.
So I'm really appreciative of the 15-20 degree start we've had to November here. It makes me feel like I'm getting a taste of Vancouver. Even if my city isn't as pretty, and yours is being drowned by rain at the moment. But I digress, lets answer some questions:
