Yesterday, we ruffled some feathers by outlining five reasons why the Vancouver Canucks will miss the playoffs in the second half of 2015. Fortunately, it's not all doom and gloom in Canuck nation. Currently sitting 8th in the conference with a game in hand on nearly everyone, Vancouver is well positioned to reach the goals they set out to accomplish at the beginning of the season and be a playoff team in 2014-2015.
Read past the jump for the five best reasons why the Canucks will be a playoff team by the time the regular season is done.

I said in the pre-game that if there was ever a night for Vancouver's slumping shooters to look good, it was tonight against Ray Emery and the porous Philadelphia Flyers. And boy, they did not disappoint. The Canucks' shooters hammered three goals past the struggling Emery in the first 30 minutes of the game before burying a 4th behind Rob Zepp en route to a clean 4-0 road victory.

After a disappointing start to their 5-game road trip, the Vancouver Canucks are back in action tonight against the struggling Philadelphia Flyers. It may be the perfect storm for a Canucks team that can't score, as "team defence" isn't exactly a strength of Philadelphia, and starting goalie Steve Mason (who's actually been quite good since being dealt from Columbus) is out with a lower body injury. Regardless, Vancouver will try to bump their scoring slump tonight while holding NHL points leader Jakub Voracek and superstar centre Claude Giroux in check.
