I said in the pre-game that if there was ever a night for Vancouver's slumping shooters to look good, it was tonight against Ray Emery and the porous Philadelphia Flyers. And boy, they did not disappoint. The Canucks' shooters hammered three goals past the struggling Emery in the first 30 minutes of the game before burying a 4th behind Rob Zepp en route to a clean 4-0 road victory.
Read past the jump for a recap of tonight's bounce-back performance.

After a disappointing start to their 5-game road trip, the Vancouver Canucks are back in action tonight against the struggling Philadelphia Flyers. It may be the perfect storm for a Canucks team that can't score, as "team defence" isn't exactly a strength of Philadelphia, and starting goalie Steve Mason (who's actually been quite good since being dealt from Columbus) is out with a lower body injury. Regardless, Vancouver will try to bump their scoring slump tonight while holding NHL points leader Jakub Voracek and superstar centre Claude Giroux in check.
Read past the jump for a preview of tonight's match-up.

Things aren't exactly looking great for the Vancouver Canucks. They're coming off a 5-1 loss to the Nashville Predators, and have been on a slide for the about a month now.

Being the chronic pessimists that we are at Canucks Army, we're just waiting for the inevitable worst-case scenario to happen.
So without further adieu, read past the jump for five reasons why the Canucks will fall out of the playoffs in the second half of the season.
