Enemy territory: Japers' Rink (these are very cool people)

The Canucks did well on their road trip, pulling in the 5-1-1 record in 11 nights. Now they return home for a week that kicks off with a visit from the Capitals, a team I would still love to see live at some point before their superstar gets too old.

On one end of the ice, there is the Russian superstar Alex Ovechkin. Last year's league MVP already has 10 goals so far this season, tied at the top of the league with Alexander Steen. Both these Alex's are tied for 15 points overall, good for 4th in the league for points. On the other end of the ice, we have one Alexander Edler, a constant leader in icetime on our blueline, as well as the confirmed return of an Alexandre Burrows.

Battle of the Alex's? Maybe, let's see what happens. Coconuts go!
