Not getting it done on Saturday forces the Canucks to make it right tonight. The LA Kings are in town, unless you've lived under a rock the past few days. But even if you had, you knew that before, so stop living under a rock! The wounds are still fresh after that epic playoff-like game two weeks ago and both teams desperately want the win this evening.
No doubt Tyler Toffoli will be public enemy number one after his blatant cheap shot on Alex Burrows last game. Derek Dorsett, Kevin Bieksa, or - the turtle whisperer himself - Jannik Hansen may exact some revenge if Burrows doesn't. This one is a big 4 point game and some may talk about clinching after it's over. They don't get bigger than this.

Welcome to what could be the penultimate power rankings of the Canucks' season. Yikes.

The Canucks looked to get back to their winning ways today, visiting the Winnipeg Jets for a matinee game with serious playoff implications. The Jets, of course, are fighting tooth and nail to hold on to that second and final Wild Card berth in the Western Conference. The Canucks, well, they're just trying to add to their second place cushion.
Vancouver didn't do themselves many favours. They looked disinterested at times and it reflected in their defensive zone coverage or lack thereof for the better part of today's contest. Eddie Lack didn't turn in the greatest performance either, letting the Jets put five past him, including a few McSoftys. When it was all said and done, the Canucks dropped today's game 5-4.
Defence be damned, lets break this one down on the other side of the jump.
