Game Day Recon #51 - Canucks @ Stars
Welcome to the jungle, Cody. Tonight marks the major professional debut for Cody Hodgson as he suits up for the first time for the Vancouver Canucks in the regular season.And the Canucks picked a great time and place to help the young man get his feet wet in the NHL.
You might even say that the stars have aligned for Hodgson to start in Dallas.

Right before the ASG
sideshow break Vancouver played what many called a boring game against the Nashville Predators. Boring or not, the Preds are a solid team and played a very even game until about the halfway point when they appeared to dictate the play more and Pekka Rinne wasn't giving Vancouver an inch.
A miscue early in the third allowed the Preds to jump on the board, but Alex Burrows and Lee Sweatt - in his first NHL game on his first NHL shot - would score in 90 seconds of each other to put the good guys ahead. Roberto Luongo was clutch in the final minutes, including a huge toe save on Joel Ward in the waning seconds.
After the jump, a look at the chances.

Let the Cody Hodgson era with the Vancouver Canucks officially begin. Early Monday morning, Cody Hodgson was recalled from the Manitoba Moose and is expected to join the team in Dallas for their game tomorrow against the Stars.
So what should *WE* expect from Hodgson?

Like a bat out of hell, the Canucks ran all over the Stars earlier this week, tuning them to the sweet delight of a 7-1 score. Alex Burrows, Mikael Samuelsson, Mason Raymond and Dan Hamhuis all dropped scoring-drought monkeys off their backs and helped chase Lehtonen in a PIM-filled contest.
All things considered, you'd think the Canucks would be rather dominant in respect to their scoring chances in such a game right? Think again.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have an Edler down!
The Vancouver Canucks announced today that Alex Edler will be out indefinitely and will immediately undergo microdiscectomy surgery.
YIKES. The Canucks depth on defense is facing its toughest challenge. Ever.
