Good news folks! The sky is no longer falling!!! Well, for now, at least...
The Canucks finally got a preseason win last night, with a strong 6-1 game against Phoenix. Our powerplay was actually working for once, and the bottom guys were all shining. That was definitely the boost of encouragement that was needed.
Now Vancouver faces a back-to-back home-and-road situation, playing in San Jose tonight. Zach Hamill has a chance to play for a spot on the roster, with an injury set to keep Jordan Schroeder on the sidelines for the next while and the suspensions on Dale Weise and Zack Kassian. Dan Hamhuis, Frank Corrado, and Eddie Lack are also expected to play this game.
