Vancouver Canucks News & Notes

Weird game last night. I thought the new forward lines showed some chemistry and the PowerPlay looked deadly, but another porous defensive effort resulted in 5 goals against and a loss. The Raymond Experiment wasn't a total failure, as the Sedins put up a few points finally. Alex Burrows was incredible with Jannik Hansen.
