Canucks need some more Higgybum in Rinne's business. Wait, that's doesn't sound right.

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Semifinal Game 5 - Predators @ Canucks

Two weeks ago, the panic level amongst Canucks fans went through the roof, as the Canucks failed, then failed again, then failed again, to eliminate the Chicago Blackhawks.

Well that was then, and this is now. And the Canucks aren't playing the Blackhawks anymore.

Can the Vancouver Canucks prove that they're ruthless and eliminate the Nashville Predators tonight?

“Without The Slightest Contribution”

I’ve been delighted to see how three games can change the perception of a player. The Ryan Kesler bandwagon is in full swing, with the shutdown of the Toews line approaching the status of legend and his recent outburst against the Predators erasing the memories of his offensively inept first round against Chicago.

The flip side, at least in some quarters, has been the disparagement of the Sedin twins (pictured above).

Game Review: Western Conference Semfinal Game 4 - Canucks @ Predators

The Vancouver Canucks played arguably their most dominant game against the Nashville Predators last night. And it was a well-worn cliche that finally got them there.

On Thursday, the Canucks' best players were their best players. And once again, #17 led the way.

Ryan Kesler, you are a magnificent beast. Can you wrap it up in three periods though?

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Semifinal Game 4 - Canucks @ Predators

The Vancouver Canucks finally got their bounces. They got none in the opening round against Chicago, and none through the first two games against Nashville. Those lucky bounces and goals seemed to be going AGAINST the Canucks, but Game 3 saw that change. As the adage goes, "You have to be good to be lucky and lucky to be good."

So has the Canucks puck luck finally swung in their favour?

If so, can we expect the Sedins, specifically Henrik, to finally break out on the scoresheet tonight?
