So, Vancouver lost 5-1 last night to Chicago in a blowout on home ice in their 19th game. For an interesting yet useless bit of trivia, last season in their 19th game they dropped a 7-1 game on home-ice to the Blackhawks. The season prior, in their 19th game, they lost 6-1 on the road to St. Louis.
It's really unlucky 19 for the Vancouver Canucks, but what's good is that they tend to pick it up afterwards (for the record, the season before, in 2009, the Canucks had a 6-3 win over the New York Rangers in Game 19, so it isn't some cursed habit) and finish the year on a stronger note than how they started, with 2009 being the exception.

Like most Blackhawks fans, Reardon is none of fond of the Canucks and their diving, whining antics. Check it out:

Game Day Recon: Game #19 - Blackhawks @ Canucks
Allow me to try my hand at a Chris Farley impression for a moment...
"Hey. Remember the last time the Blackhawks played at Rogers Arena? That was awesome. Oh, and remember when Alex Burrows scored in overtime to win the series? That was awesome."
