This was the Canucks after last week's game at home to Chicago.
Game Day Recon #24 - Canucks @ Blackhawks
The Vancouver Canucks are looking to redeem themselves against the defending Stanley Cup champions, after the champs came into their barn and spanked them silly.
Don't let anyone tell you different - this is a huge statement game for the Canucks. Can they rebound against their nemesis? Can they return the favour and administer a similar whooping?

A few weeks ago Vancouver traveled to Toronto to play their only game at the ACC this season. After spotting the Leafs two goals, Vancouver stormed back but needed an innocent long shot by Mason Raymond to fool J.S. Giguere for the win.

The Canucks have all elements of their game rolling right now. They have four lines working for 60 minutes. Both their PP and their PK are in the top 4 in the league. They are dominating the faceoff circle. Specifically in their last three games, they have outscored their opponents 17-5. In these games, the defense has been mostly poised with the puck, making simple plays and moving the puck up ice quickly.
So the question is... Why the hell can't they do this against Chicago?

Game Day Recon #23 - Canucks @ Flames
In recent years, games between the Flames and the Canucks were meaningful, emotional battles that were must-see TV. This season, with the Flames struggling, the battle has lost some of its lustre but there is no doubt that these two teams simply DO NOT like each other. And given that this is their first meeting of the year, both teams will be looking to come out flying.
That has all the makings of a really good tilt.
