Green lasers? Stupid.

Green men? Hilarious!

Green from being sick Saturday night? Join the club.

The Canucks weren't awful, but clearly didn't rise to the test. They're a lucky bunch to escape with a point. And while stomping on the Jackets and Dogs of the league is fun and all, it's the Calgary's of the league they need to best.

Luckily, Nashville (only one point behind Vancouver) presents a similar test. Stopping Weber, Hornqvist, Sullivan et all should provide another good test, especially for a defensive core that returned Oberg and welcomes Sami back in tonight (so maybe Edler can catch his breath). At even strength and special teams, Vancouver holds the edge across the board and yet this should still be a gritty, close match-up.

Time to get back on the winning side of things. And since we've been leaning heavy on the It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia stuff today, how about a modified quote from the one and only Charlie Day, from the Charlie Goes America All Over Everybody's Ass episode:

I'm gonna rise up, I'm gonna to kick a little ass, I'm gonna to kick some ass in GM Place, gonna climb a mountain, gonna sew a flag, gonna fly on an eagle. I'm gonna kick some butt, I'm gonna drive a big truck, I'm gonna rule this world, I'm gonna kick some ass, I'm gonna rise up, I'm gonna kick a little ass. ROCK, FLAG, and EAGLE!
