The margin for error in the NHL can be so incredibly small at the best of times. Vancouver was .1 of a second away from being slapped in the face with this reality. While San Jose forwards exercised their annual time share on the Canucks defensive zone throughout the night, it wasn't enough to get past a scorching hot Ryan Miller for the equalizer late in the game.
Sometimes it's the result that matters and not the process. Count tonight's victory for the Canucks as one such occasion. Despite being out-shot 36-19, the Canucks were able to exit the SAP Center with a rare victory over the Sharks by a score of 3-2. I'd hardly call this a winning formula long-term, but for tonight it was good enough.

For many people, the real NHL season starts today. The Vancouver Canucks play their first games of the year against the real powers of the Pacific Division, all on the road, and all in the span of four short days. Before travelling to Los Angeles to play the Kings and Ducks in back-to-back games on the weekend, they'll be in Northern California tonight to take on the San Jose Sharks.

Another week gone by, and another week of action for our Canucks prospects. All the leagues are under way and all NCAA schools have been playing real games against other NCAA schools. There's plenty of good news coming out of Kalamazoo, where it is rare you get to be excited about an ECHL player.

With 18 points in their first 13 games, the Vancouver Canucks are off to a stellar start to the 2014-15 campaign, but will it last?
Let's look a bit deeper at how this club has performed by the underlying numbers, and do our best to determine whether or not this team has staying power in the tough Western Conference. Read on past the jump.
