-Mr. and Mrs. Luongo are expecting their second child (via C-Section in Florida) this week. Reports say Luongo may head down there on Wednesday. (The Province)

-I thought Mikael Samuelsson played excellent in the win over Edmonton. His drive is increasing with lower goal totals this season.

-I used to feel bad for Dan Hamhuis because he got stuck on a line with Kevin Bieksa. Now I completely take that back. Bieksa is playing great responsible hockey, and I really like that duo.

-Cam Cole saved me the task of finding out what was the last time the Canucks beat the Flyers IN Vancouver. That date was January 17, 1989.

-The Flyers have not played for over a week! Last game was December 20, a 5-0 loss to the Panthers.

-THIS from Philly.com is an intriguing concept however is a form of blasphemy.

VIDEO

I know Kesler will never forget the Flyers after taking this vicious crosscheck in 2007:

The last time these teams played eachother: a Mitchell goal, a Bieksa superman punch and a win:

Of all the Flyers beatings handed out to the Canucks, New Year's Eve 1997 stands out the most:

 

Classic Canucks-Flyers Bench-Clearing "Brawl"

Enjoy the game! Expect the unexpected as these 2 teams rarely play eachother. This could be fun. Go Canucks!
