Game Day Recon #46 - Canucks @ Avalanche
The Vancouver Canucks will see a couple of fresh faces in the lineup tonight, as they deal with a bout of injuries. The Canucks called up both Sergei Shirokov and Chris Tanev from the Manitoba Moose to fill in the holes. The youngsters appear to be up for to the test. So can they help the Canucks go 5-for-5 tonight?

Game Day Recon #44 - Canucks @ Capitals
The Vancouver Canucks LOST. In regulation! WHAT?! Ok, it was bound to happen. So now it's time to start a new winning streak. This time, they have to start it against one of the best teams in the league, as they hit the U.S. capital to take on Ovie and the boys.

Game Day Recon #43 - Canucks @ Rangers
Two things always come to mind when the Canucks play the Rangers.
The first is Jim Robson's beautiful call at the end of Game 6 of the 94 Stanley Cup final. "He'll play! You KNOW he'll play! He'll play on crutches!".
The other is Nathan effin' Lafayette hitting iron in the final few minutes of Game 7.
We're many years removed from the 94 final, but meetings between the Canucks and Rangers are always something special.
