And so begins a week of condensed game previews as I am outta town and hopefully in Kamloops for the holidays. If I see Mark Recchi I'll beat his old crinkly ass up and throw his carcass in the river. Just for you guys because.. you know.. I love you and stuff.

Hope you all are enjoying your Christmas Day!

Now let's see if the Canucks actually put up an effort au contraire to that Calgary stinker last game. Alain Vigneault was pissed after that loss and did not head home happy. I liked seeing that emotion from the coach, because the players lacked it. I expect a big effort Monday night.
