The Wolves roamed into Abbotsford on Thursday and accomplished something they'd been unable to do all season - grab a come-from-behind 3rd period win.

Jordan Schroeder led the way for Chicago with a pair of 2nd period goals, just 25 seconds apart, that put the Wolves into the lead. Playing in front of all the Canucks' brass, the young Minnesotan was named the game's first star.

Seriously Ribeiro? Get that weak garbage out of here.

Game Day Recon: Game #78 - Stars @ Canucks

OMG! Enough of the Dallas Stars already!! After going over a year without playing one another, the Canucks and Stars face off for the fourth time in less than five weeks.

And with the Stars and Canucks playing fairly uninspired hockey against one another, we're pretty much done with the two teams playing each other. Which only means only thing.... it's therefore inevitable that they meet again in this year's playoffs. Sigh.

How the Canucks Can Avoid Last Season's Playoff Problems

For a team to win the Stanley Cup, a lot of different factors have to correlate in their favour. Health, goaltending, and special teams are the three most important (in order). We saw all three affect the Canucks negatively during last spring's Stanley Cup Final loss. Boston was healthier, they received better goaltending, and their penalty kill stifled Vancouver’s league-leading power play and snsurprisingly, the Bruins won in convincing fashion. Are the Canucks now better equipped to deal with the issues that plagued them in the Final last year?
