On the bright side, that game marks the third played between these two clubs this season, which makes for only two being left on the schedule. On a less fortunate note, the Canucks looked the part of a team coming off four days rest, weighed down by Christmas feasts. Despite building a small lead early, Vancouver spent much of this game on their heels.
For their troubles, Vancouver left the Honda Center with just the one point, losing 2-1 in overtime. Not a lot happened, but what little that did is gonna be covered on the other side of the jump.

The Vancouver Canucks look to pick up their winning ways from before the break, kicking off a three-game stretch playing solely against California teams. These games make for a good measuring stick for Vancouver, who to their credit, have been able to mask middling possession play and terrible goaltending thus far in the young 2014-15 campaign with relative success.
First up for Vancouver are the Anaheim Ducks, who feature former Canuck and lifetime naughty list VIP Ryan Kesler. The Ducks are on the second half of back-to-back games, having lost a close one last night to the Arizona Coyotes. Can Vancouver take advantage of favourable scheduling and an injury depleted Ducks lineup to leave the Honda Center victorious?
Well, lets see what the other side of the jump has to say about it.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas, ate your weight in delicious food and spent way too much time arguing with your relatives about your opposing political viewpoints. You know, the TRUE meaning of the holidays!

Canada defeated Germany 4-0 on Saturday for their second victory in as many days. When scoring the first goal of the game, Canada is now 2-0 in the 2015 World Juniors. If they want to win gold in the tournament, they should look to do that every game.
