The Canucks have not had luck on their side lately. In this last stretch, they have lost 4 straight games. Although the case can be made that these guys have been playing their butts off in these losses, moral wins are not worth any points, especially in our new division. These guys need to get pucks into the net very soon.
Tonight's opponent brings both hope and worry for us. It should be easy to whip a team like the Panthers, who nearly as low as Edmonton in the standings. Hell, even Philly has passed them now! But then we have Vancouver history to worry about: despite Tortorella's makeover of the team, there is still worry about the Canucks playing down to their opponents. Working their butts off will help, but will it be enough to earn a much-needed win?
