The Canucks played quite well in Phoenix, despite the shootout loss. It was nice to see our powerplay percentage rise back above 10% for what we hope is a long while.
It could easily drop back down tonight, though. The Canucks find themselves in San Jose, taking on what is probably the strongest and toughest of our new already-bitter division rivals. The Sharks have already beat us twice this season, winning 4-1 in both games. They sure aren't friends of ours, that's for sure.
Tonight's gamethread title is inspired by the old 80's hit below. I felt a little guilty about posting this instead of a metal song to help Kent feel better, but keeping this song out of your head is harder than fighting sickness!
