Heeeeeeeee's back!

Cam Charron's favourite Canucks defence prospect not named Corrado or Subban is up. And there's no telling why.

Okay, you can exhale now.

Less than 48 hours after playing what can only be described as a snoozer of a game in Columbus the Canucks went into the Nassau Coliseum and won 5-4 in overtime against the New York Islanders in a back-and-forth, wild 'n' wacky game. Other than a quiet stretch that didn't have much in the way of happenings in the 3rd period this was a contest that was as entertaining as it gets. 

Once you feel like you've adequately composed yourself and gathered your bearings, read on past the jump for some thoughts on the eventful victory by the Vancouver Canucks. There are definitely more than a few things to talk about.

Look at that strapping young man.

It feels like it has been forever since the Canucks were in Long Island, but apparently their last visit was on January 11th, 2011, so I guess the photo above is just a teensy weensy bit older than that. The Canucks will be playing the 4th game of their 7-game roadtrip, and they're coming off of a rather forgettable loss to the Blue Jackets. Fortunately for them they're probably catching a depleted New York Islanders squad at just the right time, as they'll be without a few important pieces in this one.

Read on past the jump for a preview of tonight's game against the soon-to-be Brooklyn Professional Hockey Team.

Hello everyone, I'm back. I wish I had some witty comment to put in here, or some reference to a song from Dance Mix 93, but I don't. If you're not happy about it then maybe just have a coke, smile and shut the fuck up while you read through the Headshots.

So this is a natural fit for us. That said, make sure to gamble for fun (or for bragging rights), not to make money. From all of us at CanucksArmy and PlayNow: a gentle reminder to use your game sense!
