I warned you that there was going to be a lot of talk about Alain Vigneault's job during the two-day break between Games 3 & 4. Here we go...
Vancouver Canucks News & Notes
The Canucks and their fans received a glimmer of hope in their darkest hour yesterday: Daniel Sedin will join the team in LA today for practise. But does this mean he will play in Game 4? "That is a decision that he and the doctors will make together." | VS
Is Alain Vigneault "out-coached" in the playoffs as often as some fans seem to think? Drance gives the sort of detailed analysis only he can pull off. | CanucksArmy
Harrison Mooney gives his own take on the subject. | PITB
Unsurprisingly, Tony G. is planted firmly in the "Fire AV" camp. Heck, he set up his tent, went hunting for dinner, lit a fire, and is tuning his acoustic guitar for a sing-a-long. | The Province
After a season in which fans were convinced that nothing mattered until the playoffs, the team's current series deficit has us all feeling one thing: disappointment. | Smug Nation
The Canucks had a day off to recharge yesterday, and Kevin Bieksa showed up on Twitter to let us know they had some good team bonding.
I've seen a lot of fans mock the Canucks' positivity given the position they're in. Would you prefer they openly cry in the media like Patrick Kane last year?
NHL News & Notes
Their biggest piece of bad news is Nick Backstrom received a match penalty for a high crosscheck on Rich Peverley, which means an automatic suspension. | Kukla's Korner
Everyone is piling on Marc-Andre Fleury for his poor performance in this year's playoffs, but at the other end, Ilya Bryzgalov hasn't exactly been all-universe. | Backhand Shelf
