Canucks/Blues Preview: Time to Rock!

Well hopefully this game does not resemble the last time these 2 teams played on February 27, where the Blues won 3-1. Just like the Canucks' loss in their last game against the Wild, the Canucks lacked intesity in their loss to the Blues, who played superb despite losing Tkachuk and Guerin to trades. Tommi Santala played on the Sedin line because Pyatt was injured, and looked terrible out there. Doug Weight scored 2 third period goals to bury a lifeless Canucks team.
The Blues are not to be taken lightly. They are 22-12-7 since Andy Murray took over on December 11. They gave the Flames a run for their money in their last game, coming back from 2 goals down in the 3rd, but lost in a shootout 5-4. And Lee Stempniak... 23 goals and 22 assists in 69 games this season, is red hot right now.
Time for the Canucks to rock. I want to see 60 minutes of intensity, boys. Because if you don't, odds are the Wild are going to beat the Oilers tonight, and you will relinquish your top spot in the Northwest.

My call:
5-3 Canucks. Anyone else got a prediction?
