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.

Canada vs. Russia Postgame: Collapse

Three games were played tonight, one in each period. In the first, we saw the Canadian team we had seen throughout the tournament: a powerhouse, offensively capable and much too busy threatening to allow opportunities against.
