Game Day Recon #09 - Avalanche @ Canucks

The Vancouver Canucks are starting the season by dealing with mounting injury problems, especially on defense. Tonight they face another team with missing bodies on the blueline, as they face Colorado at Rogers Arena. Will the Canucks depth on defense be able to withstand the high-flying Avs forwards? And will the young and inexperienced Avs D be able to contain the Canucks forwards who may have finally found its groove.

This is Issac Newton. In addition to discovering gravity, he developed quadratic equations and famously invented the number '3.' "It was an obvious thing to do" he would later explain, "there was such a big opportunity between 2 and 4. It was only a matter of time between someone closed the gap."

RICK RYPIEN! SUSPENSION! SIX GAMES!

There, I got that out of the way. Ok, now on to today's game. 

The Vancouver Canucks host the rematch of their debacle from Wednesday night. Vancouver is no doubt looking for scoreboard revenge, after being humiliated three night ago and putting up a pretty poor performance.
