Vancouver is in Orange County tonight to face the Anaheim ducks for the first time since the big trade in the Summer that sent Ryan Kesler to Anaheim for Nick Bonino, Luca Sbisa, and Jared McCann. While this game won't settle who won the trade, or anything in the grand scheme of an 82-game NHL season, a win tonight would go a long way to salvaging some of the goodwill lost with back-to-back poor efforts against San Jose and Los Angeles.
Standing in their way are the NHL-leading Anaheim Ducks, who, even without Corey Perry, will be a tough opponent on the second half of a back-to-back. Read past the jump for a preview.

After escaping Northern California with a stolen two points, Vancouver is back in action tonight looking to avoid a moral victory against the L.A. Kings. The Canucks enter L.A. with a 10-4-0 record, and just two points back of the Anaheim Ducks for 1st place in the entire NHL. A win over the always tough Kings tonight will set up a first-place showdown with the Ducks tomorrow, so Vancouver should be motivated to come out and put forth a better effort than Thursday night in San Jose.
Read past the jump for a preview of tonight's action.
