The Canucks will continue their eastward swing on Thursday, facing the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Consol Energy Center. It will be the fourth leg of the Canucks seven-game road trip, which marks the more than half-way mark of completion. Thus far, the Canucks are 2-1 with victories over Columbus and Washington, while having surrendered their only loss to Detroit.
Can the Canucks keep up their success against the Leastern Conference, or will the supremely talented Penguins overwhelm them? Lets set the stage, on the other, other side of the jump.

If there is a hockey god, my prayer to him or her would be for November to never end. Make no mistake about it, I want to live in a world where Jannik Hansen can score a hat trick and Luca Sbisa can run through Patrick Kane like bad food court sushi. I want to live in a world where Ryan Miller is better than Cory Schneider, where Bo Horvat is the best Canucks rookie since Trevor Linden, and the Canucks are better than the Sharks and Blackhawks. November was fun. Long live November.
Of course, it was not all sunshine, rainbows, and puppy dogs. Find out what I thought about the Canucks November after the jump.

It is now December, and for many of the Vancouver Canucks prospects their teams are close to reaching the halfway point on their season. With December that means the World Junior Championships are just around the corner and we start our yearly Prospect Invitee Watch, though it looks like there will only be four prospects, at most, invited to various teams.
To see how Vancouver's prospects have performed this week, continue past the jump.

In a 4-3 victory over the Washington Capitals on Tuesday the Vancouver Canucks scored enough to bail out a shaky goaltending performance from Ryan Miller, who requested the game specifically from head coach Willie Desjardins.
Miller's shaky outings have been all-too common this season, but at least the "out-scoring iffy goatlending" thing is a huge relief for those of us who watched the Canucks stagger through the 2013-14 season. So don't look a gift win in the mouth, I say!
