THE ULTIMATE: Harrrrrrold Snepsts will be inducted into the Canucks' Ring Of Honor before the game. Definitely one of my fave all-time Canucks. Congrats to the Warrior Mr. Snepsts. Well-deserved!

The Canucks hurt the Flames chances by beating them Saturday night. The situation for the Wild is even more dire now, and if we beat them in regulation Tuesday night. They sit 4 points out of a playoff spot and are running out of time. The folks at Hockey Wilderness are scoreboard watching, very closely. Tough times.The wheels are falling off. They lost their last 2 games by 4-0 scores. Having a 2-4-1 record in their last 6 has dropped them out of a playoff spot. If you look below, they have some key injuries and the active forwards have dried up. Not a good sign. But hey Wild fans, the Canucks have a way of allowing players out of slumps, right Mr. Stajan?

In 4 games against the Wild this season:

-Daniel Sedin has 2 goals and 1 assist

-Henrik Sedin has 3 assists

-Ryan Kesler has 2 goals and 1 assist

-Manny Malhotra has 3 goals and 2 assists!

-Jannik Hansen has 1 goal and 2 assists

In 4 games against the Canucks:

-Matt Cullen has 2 goals and 2 assists

-Martin Havlat has 1 goal and 2 assists
