Game Day Recon #72 - Avalanche @ Canucks
The Canucks have won 6 straight. The Avs have lost 8 straight. The Canucks are first in the league and doing their best to stay there. The Avs are looking at a lottery pick and a REALLY good one, at that. The Avs perennial Canuck killer, Milan Hejduk, is out of the lineup and they have Brian Elliott in net.
All things are pointing to a Canucks blowout tonight. So will the Canucks actually put a division rival out of its misery, or will they phone this one in? In years past, they'd have phoned this one in, but this year the Canucks have been a little more ruthless.

My daughter started her first year of hockey this season. She has a growing interest in the Canucks, and even chose #17 for her jersey because she likes Ryan Kesler. She's a smart girl. The other day, my budding superstar asked me a great question. "How many of the Canucks have only ever played for the Canucks?". I started adding them up and it turns out that there are quite a few.
Is this the reason for the Canucks success this year?

Game Day Recon #71 - Wild @ Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks face their long-time division rivals tonight as they travel to Calgary to end their 5 game road trip against the Flames. The Flames could very well end up facing the Canucks in the first round of the playoffs. Based on how the games have gone so far this year, I think the Canucks would probably be okay with that.

The Vancouver Canucks announced this morning that, through their Canucks For Kids Fund, they donated $5 million to BC Children's Hospital.
As a parent who has spent many hours and many days at Children's Hospital, all I can say to the Vancouver Canucks is, "Thank you!".
