On Friday night, the Vancouver Canucks were looking to carry over the emotion and offense from their Wednesday night victory over the Chicago Blackhawks. Mission accomplished. 

Playing host to the Boston Bruins tonight with hopes of victory in consecutive contests the Canucks dismantled their dreaded "rivals" from Beantown to the tune of a 5-2 victory. Shawn Matthias led the way offensively and Miller put in an effective night behind his teammates. 

Lets break it all down on the other side of the jump.

Canucks Army Midterm Prospect Rankings: #4 Frank Corrado

Here at Canucks Army, we love three things more than anything in the world: prospects, prospect rankings, and whining about prospect rankings.  Every summer we vote on and rank the top-20 Canucks prospects to take stock of what's in the system, and every summer we hear vocal complaints from our readers they disagree with our rankings.

So this year, in our mid-term ranking, we gave you the chance to vote on prospects and have a say on these players.  Since our summer rankings, we've simplified the definition of "prospect" to any player in the Vancouver Canucks' system that is eligible for the Calder Trophy if they were to play in the NHL this year.  This means that players like Linden Vey and Joacim Eriksson who were not rated over the summer will be covered in this series.

Without further adieu, here is our 4th rated Canucks Prospect.

After a brief 2-game road swing, the Canucks are back in action tonight to take on the Boston Bruins. With Milan Lucic, Brad Marchand, and Zdeno Chara still in the opposing lineup, and Derek Dorsett, Ryan Miller and Willie Desjardins joining the Canucks, the fires of hate still burn deeply, but not all of it stems from 2011 anymore. Regardless, if Wednesday's game against Chicago is any indication how Vancouver will play tonight, it should be a fun game.
