I hope Ehrhoff is saying "Don't touch me! Don't touch me! Don't touch me!" ... in German.

Game Day Recon #81 - Wild @ Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks play their final home game of the regular season tonight as they face Northwest Division rival the Minnesota Wild. The Canucks are looking to come back after two very lacklustre efforts against the Oilers and hope to turn the tide in their penultimate regular season game before they start the playoffs as the #1 seed.
Also, I wanted to use the word 'penultimate'.

The two consecutive losses to the Edmonton Oilers are meaningless. I know that. Most Canucks fans know that. However, I am noticing a few disturbing trends in their three weeks of play. And it starts with the way the Canucks are starting games.
And I must admit, I'm a bit concerned.

As another NHL regular season draws to a close, the NHL awards discussion has picked up steam, and there are a few Canucks garnering some attention. Daniel Sedin leads the league in scoring and is almost certainly the favourite for the Hart Trophy. Ryan Kesler is a legitimate Selke candidate. Roberto Luongo is always in the picture when it comes time to look at the Vezina.
And Alain Vigneault has to be considered for the Jack Adams.

Hey Kes. Wanna get another hattrick tonight? Ok. That would be fun.

Game Day Recon #80 - Canucks @ Oilers
The Vancouver Canucks are looking to come back after an understandably disappointing game on Hockey Night in Canada against the Edmonton Oilers. The Canucks look to bounce back and for a little redemption as they head to Edmonton in the second half of their home-and-home series.
