Just one day removed from the 100th anniversary of this city's last Stanley Cup, the Canucks looked to honour their Millionaire predecessors by donning their maroon regalia in front of the Rogers Arena faithful. The jerseys may have looked great, but that's about all the Canucks had going for them tonight. They were out-shot mightily, surrendering 30-shots to the Colorado Avalanche before the 30-minute mark in tonight's contest.
While they mounted a late push in the third, it wasn't enough to overcome the Av's mountainous lead. The Canucks would lose this one 4-1.
Lets break it down on the other side of the jump.

On a night of celebrating former champions in this city, the Canucks played like a runner-up. Our NHL 94 recap is after the jump.

Cyclone Taylor aka Radim Vrbata coming off a 2 goal performance gets an opportunity to take on gritty forward Gabriel Landeskog tonight as the Millionaires take on the Avs at Rogers Arena. 100 years have passed but the memory of Vancouver's only hockey championship still looms large.
Colorado is coming off a shaming by the Oilers after going down 3 - buzz only to come back and tie it, then lose in regulation to one of the worst collections of NHL, sure we'll call them that, NHL players. The other positive is that it was just last night! That can't feel good going into a building that is hungry for more wins. The Vancouver Millionaires are ready to avenge their last outing against the Sens last year. Very different meaning this year.
7 wins in their last 10, and riding a 3 game winning streak; Things are coming into place for the Canucks at just the right time.

Chris Tanev signed a very large contract with the Canucks and you won't believe what happened next! (Everyone hates him now).
