Things aren't exactly looking great for the Vancouver Canucks. They're coming off a 5-1 loss to the Nashville Predators, and have been on a slide for the about a month now. Their goal scoring has all but evaporated, leading to concerns that 2014-2015 is following an eerily similar script to the year from hell under John Tortorella. Being the chronic pessimists that we are at Canucks Army, we're just waiting for the inevitable worst-case scenario to happen.

But after another night of toothless offensive play from the Canucks at 5-on-5 and 5-on-4, things went to hell in the final 10 minutes, as the Nashville Predators pulled away late in the game. Vancouver fell to 0-1 on their road trip with a disappointing 5-1 loss to the NHL leading Nashville Predators.

After dropping their final two games of their five game home stand, the Canucks take to road to battle the league leading Nashville Predators tonight at 5:00 PM PST. Vancouver's biggest challenge of late has been putting puck past opposing goalies, and that task gets even tougher tonight as they face the league's stingiest team in their own rink.
