Game Day Recon #43 - Canucks @ Rangers

Two things always come to mind when the Canucks play the Rangers.
The first is Jim Robson's beautiful call at the end of Game 6 of the 94 Stanley Cup final. "He'll play! You KNOW he'll play! He'll play on crutches!".
The other is Nathan effin' Lafayette hitting iron in the final few minutes of Game 7.

Ugh.

We're many years removed from the 94 final, but meetings between the Canucks and Rangers are always something special.

So here sit the Vancouver Canucks, on top of the NHL standings as they cross the halfway point of their season.
They're currently leading the power rankings on TSN, Sportsnet, ESPN and NHL.
In their last 21 games, which is essentially the second quarter of the season, the Canucks have gone 17-1-3, garnering 37 of a possible 42 points.

So let's start planning the parade route, right?

Not bloody likely, but then again, I am a veteran (and therefore ultimately pessimistic) Canucks fan.
