Facing an Arizona Coyotes club that is diving head first into the McEichel sweepstakes, tonight's game had all the makings of a typical Vancouver Canucks letdown loss. Hell, it wouldn't even be the first one the Canucks had suffered at the hands of the Coyotes this month, having dropped a 3-2 shootout contest in Arizona on March 5th. The precedent had been set.
These Canucks bucked the trend of playing down to lesser competition, though, putting on a dominant performance in the Gila Rivers Arena, beating the Coyotes 3-1. The Canucks almost doubled up the Coyotes in shots as well, posting 44 to the Yotes 25. All in all, a good performance.
Lets break it down on the other side of the jump.

So, um, quite a day yesterday hey? Canucks beat the Kings for the first time in what seems like forever, we now ALL hate Bill Simmons, and Eddie Lack revealed himself as a closet Swedish thug - a lot to take in for one afternoon. As big a win as that was, today is no different. The season series favours Arizona 2-1 with each team getting a blowout and then the Coyotes winning in a shootout.
The Arizona Coyotes have been on fire since the All Star break going 2-17-1 in their last 20. Did I say on fire? I meant literally on fire. They've shamed a nation, or at least the 2000 fans that show up nightly. Sadly, Vancouver was one of those wins. We remember that one. It's not throwback night tonight so there shouldn't be any reason the Yotes want to win as they are still a few points behind the Sabres for the best chance at the first overall pick.

The Canucks played a hell of a game. The Kings did not. Vancouver won. I'm not in a good mood. Here's your damn recap. Have fun.

Here's the thing: I HATE THE KINGS. I always have and always will. Their fairweather fans when things aren't going well could be worse than Vancouver's. They're just a bunch of wheel spinning, vowel buying, come on down price tag wearing, spray tan housewives of Beverly Hills fakes. You've been called out. Since the 2012 season though, beating the Kings isn't exactly easy and then there's those two rings. Man I hate them.
The season series is all LA; three wins against the Canucks and Vancouver has been slaughtered 12-3 on the score sheet. The game on March 9th was so fun most of us left the house. So going into today's game, Vancouver needs to dig deep to somehow manage two points and it won't be easy; not to mention, the Canucks will be without Zack Kassian and Brad Richardson.
