In perusing articles for tonight's game (done at work which truly helped inspire tonight's theatrical selection), did you know that six Canucks already have career bests in goals? 'tis true. Courtesy of Das Province: Alex Burrows (29), Henrik Sedin (26), Mikael Samuelsson (24), Mason Raymond (22), Christian Ehrhoff (12) and Jannik Hansen (7).
I wonder if Markus Naslund smirks at seeing Mr. Everything with the lead in goals. Raymond is 13th best in the NHL, tied with Kessel and one behind Malkin? And how the hell did F-U Sweden, after all those seasons confined in Detroit, wait until now to pop? Oh right, the Wings had depth. Moving on.
fourteenth thirteenth stop of the RTFH©, we see the Colorado Avalanche who, along with tomorrow night's opponent, are this season's playoff gate crashers. It's bad enough they're nipping at Vancouver's heels in the standings, but Milan Silent-J is back to piss all over our dreams. And if he doesn't do it, maybe Stastny (don't we have one of them?), Stewart or Douche-ane will. Or Anderson perhaps, assuming there isn't any visual jailbait lurking around.
No reason to be scared Milton. Just think about how Vancouver has schooled Colorado in three straight for a combined 16-4 score and laugh warmly.
The ratio of people to cake is too big. Gamethread on.
