This week was all about balance for the Canucks. Those two losses that offended fans with their lack of offence were balanced out with two comfortable wins. Nick Bonino, Jannik Hansen, and Derek Dorsett scored, and nothing says balance quite like secondary and tertiary scoring. Some of the Canucks even did yoga, which might be taking the whole balance metaphor thing too far, but whatever.

I am back to cover the post-gamer for Canucks Army because of the very inspiring words of dear leader Rhys, "I've asked everyone else - there's literally no one else to do it". But nonetheless, as a power-forward blogger I gave it my 110%, competed hard and watched the game.
Sportsnet's Dan Murphy said the wise words before the game, "The Canucks offence is better with Ryan Miller in net" - I am not quite sure what it means, but it seems to have held true. The Canucks came into Raleigh and faced the Hurricanes tonight; despite being tired from a road back-to-back, and playing Miller again, the Canucks shut out the 'Canes and won 3-0.

After disposing of the Flyers 4-0 in the city of brotherly love last night, Vancouver is back in action this afternoon to take on the 28th place Carolina Hurricanes. They'll have some welcome support too, as Dan Hamhuis returns from a two-month absence, skating in his first game back since his injury, and they'll need his steadying presence too in order to take two points away from a suddenly streaking Carolina Hurricanes team.
It's a more dangerous game than the standing make it appear tonight, so read past the jump for a preview.
