In October, each of Western Canada's three National Hockey League entries recorded seven victories. In November, however, it was no contest.
While the Flames took over top spot in the Northwest Division with 10 November wins (eight of them coming on the road), the Canucks went 7-5 while the Oilers lost 10 games (seven in regulation, three via shootout) as well as the services of Ales Hemsky for the remainder of the season.

All Hail! 'Tis the return of our goal scoring saviour, Daniel Sedin!
Daniel makes his triumphant return to the Canucks line-up after missing 18 games with a broken foot. It couldn't come at a more opportune time, as his Canucks host the high-flying Central division-leading Chicago Blackhawks tonight at GM Place.

What's that? There's a Canucks gane today? God, it's been so long, I almost forgot they were playing this season.
I kid, I kid...
The Colorado Avalance visit GM Place and look to avenge a huge blow out loss in Denver almost a week. That lopsided victory was the Canucks' last game, meaning they will be either well-rested or well-rusty.
