OK kids, here's the deal. Our child came early! Liam Aleksander Zandberg was born at 10:15 this morning, 2 weeks early but no problems at all. The wife is a trooper. So this is a quick game preview and then I have to get back to business.

The Canucks are rolling again..the Dogs are not. Phoenix beat Detroit 5-4 Saturday night (thanks, boys) but have lost 4 of their last 5. Interesting stat however: since the Canucks beat them 6-0 in Phoenix February 2, the Coyotes  have a 6-1 home record. So look for an excellent effort from them.

A little more stuff after the jump, but I gotta jet!
