It’s been another week of play down in Utica with the Comets have a lighter load as they prepare for the Frozen Dome Classic, the most important regular season game of the year. The Comets have continued their win streak and all of the underlying numbers continue to look good. News must have travelled to Vancouver, as Jim Benning has even made some moves to bolster the depth for a possible Calder Cup run.

For a night that started off disastrously and ended merely poorly, there was really a lot to like about Vancouver's performance in the second half of a back-to-back against one of the Western Conference's top teams. They may have lost 4-3 in a shootout, but they battled through some early adversity, laid the boots to a rested Anaheim Ducks team in the second period, and saw Bo Horvat score his first NHL goal and dominate Ryan Kesler in the faceoff dot.
The news may get really, really bad tomorrow, but for now, there are quite a few positives, and - dare I say it - moral victories to go over tonight. Read past the jump for a recap.

You may have heard, but that Ryan Kesler guy is returning to Rogers Arena for the first time tonight since being dealt in the offseason. But beyond that, this is still an important game for the Canucks, as they sit just one point back of Anaheim for 1st in the Pacific, but just five points out of a playoff spot, with perennial powerhouses Chicago and San Jose as the teams in pursuit.
It's a huge game for a bunch of reasons tonight, so read past the jump for a preview.
