Mathew Barzal is an exceptional young hockey player. Size concerns and a significant injury have him lagging behind the top of the draft in terms of buzz, but don't be fooled about him. Young Barzal is among the very best players available in this year's draft.

Canucks Army Postgame: Star Struck

With the Los Angeles Kings loss earlier tonight, the Vancouver Canucks had a great opportunity to create some distance between themselves and their southern Californian counterparts. Not only that, but with a victory tonight, the Canucks could effectively eliminate the Dallas Stars from the playoffs as well.

With a 2-1 lead going into the third, it seemed the likeliest of outcomes. The Canucks, of course, have a nasty habit of shooting themselves in the foot and did so again tonight, surrendering two straight to the Stars in the final frame. The Canucks mounted a late push to draw even and send it to overtime, before surrendering a John Klingberg goal to drop tonight's contest 4-3 in front of the Rogers Arena faithful. 

Lets break it down on the other side of the jump.

It's been a few days since we all demanded that all the Millionaires jerseys be burned in the middle Library Square. Losing to the Avs wasn't fun and didn't help the Canucks efforts to make the playoffs. Today is a new day and a new opponent. The Dallas Stars are in town on the second half of a back to back (heard this before?) after losing to the Edmonton Oilers 4-0.

Dallas actually was flying last night but it was just another example of not being able to buy a goal. The Canucks know that one all too well. So tonight, its the latest edition of the biggest game of the season, its Hockey Night in Canada and a win would be nice.
