Coyote Hunt - Canucks vs Coyotes Gamethread

7:00 pm PST, SNet Pac
Enemy territory: Five For Howling
Enemy pro: Taylor Pyatt comes back to town.
Enemy con: Mike Smith has been posting Luongo numbers.

What a fun streak we're having, eh? The Canucks are having an interesting trend where we play horribly, and still escape with at least 1 point most of the time. It's also interesting that we're facing so many teams that are contending to make the playoffs, and could possibly face us in the 1st round. Another team like that is the Coyotes, who are currently holding on to the 8th spot in the West. Despite losing Ilya Bryzgalov over the summer, they have managed to make do with Mike Smith as their No.1 goalie, and Jason LaBarbera backing up (we get Barbie in net tonight). Ray Whitney and Radim Vrbata have also been solid on offence, each at the 50-point mark already this season (Whitney at 51, Vrbata at 47). They do also have Raffi Torres, but he's been quiet. Can Phoenix hang on to their playoff spot?

Coconuts go.
