Leading up to today's game, there were a number of exciting storylines to pay attention to: the Canucks winning-est coach Alain Vignault was returning to Vancouver; the Canucks were not able to beat the Rangers in two matchups last year; they've just returned home after a 7 game road trip seeing them lose the last 3 games; Derek Dorsett having his first child; new baby pictures of Prince George; and Rhys actually trusting me to watch this game and to write about it (there was no other viable option).
Of course, this game did not go nearly as well as planned as the Canucks lost 5-1 after a staggering number of defensive lapses and odd-man rushes.

The Canucks play their first home game since returning from a 3-3-1 road trip tonight as Alain Vigneault brings his New York Rangers to town. AV's club isn't as dangerous as the squad that won the East just earlier this calendar year, but the lights-out play of Rick Nash has helped mask their deficiencies somewhat.
What's more is that the rest of the Pacific division has quietly begun to reel in the Canucks, so tonight's two points are crucial for getting back on track. Read past the jump for a preview.

#ISLES TRANSACTION: Cory Conacher has been placed on waivers.— New York Islanders (@NYIslanders) December 12, 2014
Death, Taxes and Cory Conacher on waivers. For whatever reason, Cory Conacher has seemed like a promising young player, but can never stay with a team for long. Having moved from Ottawa, Buffalo, Tampa and New York Islanders, Conacher is back on waivers again. This makes us ask if the Canucks should put a claim on him, and if he would fit with the Canucks?
