Writing is a funny thing. Back in my November deep dive, I
boldly stated that I thought the Canucks would be able to make the playoffs on
account of them accumulating 33 points in October and November, which was
likely enough of a cushion for them to get in even if they play .500 the rest
of the way. Wouldn’t you know it, the Canucks proceeded to pick up a measly 12
points in 11 December games, finding themselves in a four way tie for 5th
place in the west at the end of 2014 with a few games in hand. I’d prefer it if the

The Vancouver Canucks entered Saturday night's game looking to put Thursday's loss to the Los Angeles Kings behind them, and they did just that on the back of another strong performance from Ryan Miller and the Sedin twins. Vancouver's powerplay scored twice, Henrik Sedin scored his 200th and 201st career NHL goals, both into empty nets, and Miller held the Detroit Red Wings off of the scoreboard for most of the night, en route to a 4-1 win.

Vancouver rang in the new year in probably the least desirable way possible with a no-show against the Los Angeles Kings.

They'll look to keep pace in the Pacific division tonight and avoid a similar performance against a resurgent Detroit Red Wings team on Hockey Night in Canada.

Though the new year started with a loss, Canucks fans should be very optimistic about 2015. All three of their participating prospects made it past the group stage of the World Juniors, Tom Sestito is on waivers, and Roberto Luongo is coming back! What more could you ask for?
