This afternoon's game against the New Jersey Devils has been an interesting one if nothing else. There have been some nice goals, cancelled out goals, crazy saves, exaggerated post-fight celebrations, and everything in between.

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.

The rest of the Pacific division is starting to catch up so it would be wise to come away with 2 points.

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!
