What the hell was that? ONE game followed by a FOUR day break? Well, have no fear, folks, because this week has FOUR Canucks games. All on the road. CBJ, Philly, Detroit and finally Edmonton on Saturday.

The Canucks will need to show up for more than half the game or they could face the wrath of Prospal-Carter-Nash, who have a combined 7 points in the BJ's first 2 games. Almost every Canuck player on Thursday's roster (loss to Pittsburgh) can be better. Chris Higgins gets a pass from me. In fact, if he continues putting out efforts like in Game 1, he could find himself on Line 2 in Game 2. Marco Sturm was very quiet on that line, but told the Province that "it's all about timing" and "getting used to new linemates." Looking forward to watching Cody Hodgson's progression and hope he bags one. So close in Game 1.

MISC

- Kesler, an Ohio State grad, might not be the only Canuck who likes it in Columbus. Vancouver hasn't lost in the Buckeye State since Dec. 1, 2008, nearly three years ago. (Blue Jackets Home)

-"I mean, really, you’re that upset?" Clutterbuck told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. "They think it’s my fault he elbowed me in the face when I wasn’t expecting it. It’s like a parent whose kid is always getting in trouble, but it’s never the kid’s fault. It’s hilarious. If I embellished it, I would have thrown my gloves in the air and pretended I was unconscious." That in regards to this:

Wiz is still serving 6 more games of an 8 game suspension for that.

Happy Thanksgiving to all! Except you, America. Haha.
