The Canucks are 2-0 against this version of the Winnipeg Jets.

As Derek Jory from Canucks.com points out: this is the first time the Canucks have played in Winnipeg since February 21, 1996, a game they won 5-3 thanks to a 3-point night from Alexander Mogilny. Check out that Jory piece. A lot of Canucks (former Moose) are going back to Winnipeg for the first time in a long time and are excited about it.

KNOW YOUR ENEMY

-The Jets are 6-2-0 in their first 8 games under new coach Paul Maurice. They are 3-1-0 on the road under Maurice.

-Before their last game against the Predators, the Jets players wore Rick Rypien jerseys during their pre-game warm up. It' was a nice touch on Let's Talk Day. Rypien played 116 games for the Moose and 119 games as a Canuck. He had signed with the Jets in the summer of 2011, but took his own life at his Albertan home on August 15, 2011. He was a beauty:

He will never be forgotten. A stick tap to the Jets for the classy move on Tuesday night. They were wearing #11 because Rypien was going to wear that number when he played for the Jets. Still gets me choked up. It's just so devastating still.

Moving on.

IN CANUCKLAND....

The Canucks are now without Kevin Bieksa as well. The injury list is concerning. No Bieksa, Henrik Sedin, Mike Santorelli, Chris Tanev. This team now has to come together as a group, stare adversity in the face, and tell it F*CK YOU! They have to look each other in the eye and swear that they will play a 60-minute game. The Canucks are 1-3-1 in their last 5 road games, but I don't want to say much more about them except to point out:

YOU MADE MY SHITLIST

-Daniel Sedin: 0 goals and 5 assists in his last 14 games.

-Alexandre Burrows: 0 goals and 3 assists in 23 games this season.

-David Booth: 0 goals and 3 assists in his last 15 games.

-Jason Garrison: 0 goals and 1 assist in his last 10.

-Dan Hamhuis: 0 goals and 9 assists in his last 36 games.

-Yannick Weber: 1 goal and 1 assist in his last 18 games.

-Henrik Sedin: 1 assist in his last 6 games. He is traveling with the team and should play on this road trip.

Just off the shitlist: Ryan Kesler and Alex Edler each had an assist against the Hawks.
