Game Day Recon #12 - Canucks @ Avalanche

It's the battle of the backups as the Canucks' Cory Schneider faces the Avs' Peter Budaj tonight in Denver. Both goalies have won their last 2 starts, but both are playing on different terms right now. While Schneider is the established back-up with a set routine of when he will play, Budaj has had to take over for Craig Anderson, who's been felled by a serious injury. So Budaj takes the reins as Colorado's temporary #1 goalie and will give Vancouver all it can handle tonight at the Pepsi Center.

Game Day Recon #11 - Canucks @ Oilers

The Vancouver Canucks head out on a quick two-game road trip, and play on back-to-back nights, as they head to Alberta's capital to face the Edmonton Oilers. Joining them on the ice for the first time this season is Alex Burrows, fully recovered and finally eligible to play after his LTIR stint to start the year.

Canucks fans can expect Burrows to come out flying and agitating, which is exactly what the Canucks need, playing back-to-back games. But the bigger story here is that the Canucks come into tonight's game still looking for their first road win of the season.
