Cyclone Taylor aka Radim Vrbata coming off a 2 goal performance gets an opportunity to take on gritty forward Gabriel Landeskog tonight as the Millionaires take on the Avs at Rogers Arena. 100 years have passed but the memory of Vancouver's only hockey championship still looms large.
Colorado is coming off a shaming by the Oilers after going down 3 - buzz only to come back and tie it, then lose in regulation to one of the worst collections of NHL, sure we'll call them that, NHL players. The other positive is that it was just last night! That can't feel good going into a building that is hungry for more wins. The Vancouver Millionaires are ready to avenge their last outing against the Sens last year. Very different meaning this year.
7 wins in their last 10, and riding a 3 game winning streak; Things are coming into place for the Canucks at just the right time.

Chris Tanev signed a very large contract with the Canucks and you won't believe what happened next! (Everyone hates him now).

Daniel Sedin wins batle v. two Jets with self-hacky sack in the neutral zone. Canucks would score on ensuring rush... pic.twitter.com/kc6cDiH4pd— Thomas Drance (@ThomasDrance) March 25, 2015
Think of the Winnipeg Jets as a poor man's Los Angeles Kings. They're a near-dominant possession team, with modest finishing power and the uncanny knack to overcome suspect goaltending. They're big, mean, and hard to separate from the the puck. And just like the Kings, they were unceremoniously dispatched by the Canucks!
They didn't make it look easy. Vancouver was generally outplayed for the entire first half of the game, but a solid performance from Eddie Lack was enough to keep them in it and secure the 5-2 victory in front of the Rogers Arena faithful.
Lets break it all down, on the other side of the jump.
