Update: Daniel Sedin will NOT be playing tonight. He has a sore back. So, hit the panic button and start predicting a Hurricanes victory! For those who already picked Dank for the winner....too late to change it. I had picked him too BTW.

Update: Canucks have called up Mark Mancari on an emergency basis today. And The Stanchion's mind is blown and his pants wet.

For the second consecutive game the Canucks play a team that is last in their Conference. Normally, this would be

a feeding frenzy for an upper echelon team like Vancouver. But no, they pissed away their last game against the lowly Blue Jackets.

Please Canucks, for the love of God, you took a night off last game (except Luongo). Now go out there and bury these punk Hurricanes. Don't make me angry. You have to beat these shitty teams, in regulation, without f*cking around and taking half the night off.
