Months from now, we may be saying that last night's dramatic victory over the Chicago Blackhawks was the emotional high that led to the emotional letdown that led to the Canucks missing the playoffs. But right now, it is time to bask in the warm glow of victory and our phone screens as we watch the vine of Zack Kassian's goal celebration over and over and over again.

Canucks blow late lead, down former rival in overtime

The Vancouver Canucks throttled the Chicago Blackhawks for 40 minutes on Wednesday night before they took their foot off the gas in the third. 

In the final frame the script was flipped, as the Canucks hung on for dear life against a bona fide Stanley Cup contender. It didn't go well for them, as they Blackhawks managed a pair of late goals to tie the contest and send it to overtime. 

Thankfully Daniei and Henrik Sedin were able to pull off some vintage Sedinery and secure a crucial extra point for their club. No harm done, at least.

Canucks Army Midterm Prospect Rankings: 6th & 5th

Here at Canucks Army, we love three things more than anything in the world: prospects, prospect rankings, and whining about prospect rankings.  Every summer we vote on and rank the top-20 Canucks prospects to take stock of what's in the system, and every summer we hear vocal complaints from our readers they disagree with our rankings.

So this year, in our mid-term ranking, we gave you the chance to vote on prospects and have a say on these players.  Since our summer rankings, we've simplified the definition of "prospect" to any player in the Vancouver Canucks' system that is eligible for the Calder Trophy if they were to play in the NHL this year.  This means that players like Linden Vey and Joacim Eriksson who were not rated over the summer will be covered in this series.

Without further adieu, here are the Canucks prospects that were rated 6th and 5th.

Canucks Army GDT #53 - Canucks @ Blackhawks

The Vancouver Canucks visit the once reviled Chicago Blackhawks to finish up their short two-game road swing. The Hawks are just 5-4-1 in their past 10 games, but they still have the NHL's best goal differential and are atop the puck possession standings once again. On the other hand, Vancouver will play without their second and third line centres, as well as two key penalty killers.

It will be a tough task to get a win tonight and continue to hold off the Minnesota Wild and Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference playoff race. Read past the jump for a preview.
