Game Day Recon #77 - Canucks @ Predators

The Vancouver Canucks wrap up their four-game road trip tonight with a visit to Music City to face the Nashville Predators.

With the Northwest Division long since under their belt and the Western title essentially theirs, they have little for which to play tonight.

Before the injury to Manny Malholtra, I thought the addition of Chris Higgins was a good one. Now that the Malholtra is out for the season with that unfortunate eye injury, however, there's a chance that the Higgins acquisition will go from "good" to "key" heading into the post-season.
