Game Day Recon: Game #14 - Canucks @ Blues
In their last meeting, Blues goalie Brian Elliott played out of this world, leaing his team to a 3-0 win at Rogers Arena. Tonight, the Canucks look to put a big loss in Minnesota in their rearview mirror and take a moonlit bike ride to victory.

But I digress... OH! Right. Onto the Canucks game!

As you all know, I have entered the #replacethekb contest for the Province, in an attempt to give myself the validation I never received as a child. You thought my finger paintings looked forced and lacked substance? Well I'll show you Mrs. Henderson! I'LL SHOW YOU..... Sorry.....
Anyways, many of you are probably still debating why I should be chosen to replace the Kurtenbloggers at the Province, and I understand that. It's hard to put your faith in a stranger like this. So the only thing I can do, is keep giving you more and more reasons as to why you should choose me until you are convinced I probably should be nominated as president of the AV club as well.

I'm joined post-game by a man who needs no introduction: Jason Botchford. We discussed the Canucks woeful performance in Minnesota at length, and Botchford brought some insight on the team's back-end issue, their reliance on Salo and the struggles of Malhotra, Kesler and Bieksa. We also gushed about Hodgson and engaged in some Weber speculation.
A massive thank you to Botch for coming on the podcast, it was a lot of fun and hopefully we'll get him on to talk some more puck again soon.

The Canucks sucked tonight, but this picture rules.
Clutterbuck getting hit is great, the fans in the shot are funny, and you can see the puck going the other way to spring a Minnesota four on one. Perfect.
Through 12 games this season, the Canucks have been the picture of inconsistency. While, for the most part, they've played well and been the victims of poor puck luck - tonight was a different story. In tonight's game the Canucks were man-handled in every which way, and lost the game in a 20 minute stretch that began mid-way through the first period and ended mid-way through the second period in which they were out chanced by their division rivals by a tally of 17 to 2. Ouch.

Welcome everybody to the first ever live chat at CanucksArmy.com. Tonight the Canucks take on the pesky Wild who always bring it when they play the Canucks, even though everyone in Vancouver (and in every NHL city basically) regard their franchise with little more than complete and utter apathy. Should be a boring game, but hopefully we can liven it up!
