A Bit of the Expected

As many of you know, I've had some interesting predictions involving this Eastern Conference road trip, particularily about the Canadian stops.  Based on the trends from the last 2 seasons, I predicted we would get shut out in Montreal (again), not do too well in Ottawa, and play badly in Toronto while barely pulling off the win (again).  Well, I did call the shutout with the Canadiens, but I didn't call the 6-2 win over the Senators.  I only got to watch the 1st period of the game against the Maple Leafs last night, but from what I saw in that period and all the comments in the gamethreads for the other 2 periods, it sounds like the Canucks played down to their level and barely got the win again.  The 5-3 win puts me at 2/3 for my predictions on this road trip.  Looking into the future, I'm expecting the Canucks to pull their stuff back together against the Sabres tomorrow night, before a barn-burner against Sidney Crosby and the Penguins on Wednesday night.
