*Update* Wack stat on Twitter kenwardskorner: Last time #Canucks lost in regulation on the road with Luongo in net was Nov. 17 at Pittsburgh. He is 7-0-2 away from Vancouver since.

Playing in Dallas one night and Phoenix the next may test the resolve of the Canucks but is there any reason to doubt these guys? They are living proof that great team find ways to win no matter what. The Coyotes are in the same predicament, playing in San Jose last night and losing 5-3. One alarming stat for the Coyotes is their home record: 10-9-5. Not very stellar at all. They have lost 4 straight games on home ice. Maybe giving away wearable blankets is the answer? Not. The Coyotes have beaten the Canucks 3 straight times at home to their credit.

Love the play of Chris Tanev and even Lee Sweatt. These rookies are really strutting their stuff. Let's see how Cody Hodgson progresses in his 2nd NHL game. I thought he played a solid 2-way game last night.

Roster change: Steve Jeff Tambellini in Aaron Volpatti out with a rib injury.
