Right off the hop: Chris Higgins returns to the Canucks lineup to face the Sharks.

Unreal. The Sharks have not played a hockey game since December 28, the night they lost 3-2 in deja-vu overtime to the Vancouver Canucks. The Canucks have played the Ducks and Kings since then. So the jackass Sharks come into GM Place well rested. The Canucks will now play their 5th game in 8 nights. I guess we can all agree that they took much of the night off against the Kings on Saturday though. These Van-SJ games

are getting intense aren't they? A fantastic rivalry is happening that won't soon go away. After tomorrow's game, these 2 teams will only see each other one more time in the regular season: Saturday, January 21. The Sharks are running out of time for revenge in the scoreboard. REJECTED!

QUOTE

"I think we’re more worried about where we are in the standings right now," Couture said. "It doesn’t matter who we’re playing – we’re out of the playoffs as of today. We need points whoever we’re playing against. Obviously we would like to beat Vancouver and Anaheim, but we just need points right now."

Logan Couture (from San Jose Mercury News)

The Sharks have played anywhere from 3 to 6 less games than any other team in the West.

And just to chuck this video out there because it gave me the chills:

"Throes Of Rejection" is a Pantera song:
