I'm not sure if it's hallucinations due to heat stroke or just another dream of striking it rich on the Strip, but it looks like Gary Bettman and the NHL are seriously entertaining the idea of putting another team in the desert.
Whatever the case, I hope they wind up selling the arena rights to the Mirage Hotel & Casino, because boy is the thought of an NHL franchise thriving in Vegas ever an illusion.

Well, the good news is that no one is going to remember tonight's game, especially after the wonderful ceremony honouring Jean Beliveau held pre-game. The bad news is that just after a poor showing coughing up a 3-0 lead to the Ottawa Senators on Sunday, the Canucks somehow managed to be worse tonight, losing 3-1 to the Montreal Canadiens.
Read past the jump for a recap of tonight's proceedings.

Vancouver is in Montreal this afternoon to finish up their 7-game Eastern road swing against the slumping Canadiens, who have dropped 3 games in a row and lost 7 of their last 10. More notably however, it will be an emotional night as Montreal is playing their first home game since the passing of Habs legend Jean Beliveau.
