It was supposed to be another Cinderella story. A Russian prospect (always a gamble to begin with) came seemingly out of nowhere to scored 2 goals in his first preseason game against the Islanders in a 2:1 win for the Canucks. He kept it going and turned some heads when Alain Vigneault put him on a line with the Sedins for the rest of preseason, then started him on a second line with Ryan Kesler at the beginning of the regular season.

Game Day Recon: Game #13 - Canucks @ Wild
The Canucks continue their six-game road-trip with their first visit to the Land of 10,000 Lakes this year. Historically, the Canucks first trip to Minnesota every year usually ends in a loss... when they play in October. However, when their first game against the Wild at Xcel happens in November, the Canucks are 3-0 in the past 5 years. So do the Canucks show some of their October hangover tonight, or do they continue their November dominance?
