The Canucks play a whopping four games this week, all on the road, as they try to salvage their playoff hopes. If you've already given up on them, there are plenty of prospets to watch, including Adam Gaudette who will play four times this week, including at least once on TV.
Come check out the full schedule to see what other fun stuff is on the docket.

A few weeks back, Vancouver Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins pledged his full support for his team’s struggling power play. ‘Good players who’ve scored before’ was the beleaguered coach’s rationale when pressed on reasons for sticking with the same groups and essentially the same formations he’s used all season with limited success. And in the past eight games, the Canucks power play is 3 for 14 (21.4%) – which by Canucks' standards this season is scorching hot. Brandon Sutter bunted a puck out of mid-air past Devan Dubnyk late in the second period of Saturday’s 6-3 loss to Minnesota and prior to that Sven Baertschi in Colorado and Troy Stecher in Chicago had scored with the man-advantage.
So maybe, just maybe, there are signs the Canucks power play is awakening from a season-long slumber. Maybe. Bet let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. The power play is 8/58 (13.8%) in the past 20 games and on the season remains a huge issue sitting 28th in the league at 22/153 (14.4%).
