Game Day Recon #40 - Oilers @ Canucks
The Canucks face the perennial powerhouse Detroit Red Wings tomorrow on Hockey Night in Canada. Tonight they face the last-place Edmonton Oilers.
Do you think they might possibly be looking past this game? Maybe just a little?

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. In the second we saw relatively boring hockey, punctuated by the occasional flurry.
Finally, in the third period, we saw either one of the greatest come-from-behind events in tournament history, or one of the greatest collapses.

Game Day Recon #39 - Flames @ Canucks
The Canucks went 3-for-3 on their recent road trip, beating Dallas, Colorado and San Jose. Those teams are 3rd, 5th and 4th respectively in the Western Conference. The Flames are 14th. And not good. And this is the first game back after a very successful road trip.
Does anyone else smell a trap game?

This is Jordan Eberle scoring one of the most famous goals in the game's history. The timing (perfect) and the degree of difficulty (impossible) add to the appeal of this photo. Tonight in Buffalo, a new chapter will be written.
