Much of the talk this past week in the hockey world revolved around another ridiculously stupid play in junior hockey. Patrice Cormier elbowed Mikael Tam with a disgustingly cheap elbow in overtime that left Tam convulsing on the ice. It wasn’t pretty, and Cormier will learn his fate this Monday.

The last time Dallas came to Vancouver, this dude was there. And that girl looks stunned. After last night's game, though, the Canucks need to get their head in the game.
The Vancouver Canucks got lucky last night. Call it payback, call it karma, call it an even-up, call it whatever you like, but the Canucks got lucky last night and beat the Edmonton Oilers.
Now, the Canucks return home to play the second half of back-to-back games, as they host the Dallas Stars tonight at GM Place.

A win for Vancouver, in this game was for most people, going to be a somewhat easy affair. Although the Canucks won in overtime Edmonton made sure that Vancouver would have to earn it the hard way. The Oilers were certainly the most dominant of the two teams in the first and second periods, especially when playing five on five. Sam Gagner was the first skater to get points on the board.

The Vancouver Canucks play the first of back-to-back games as they face the Edmonton Oilers at Rexall Place tonight. Although the Oilers are currently in last place in the Western Conference, those last place teams have been giving the Canucks a lot of trouble this season.
