The Canucks started a little shaky at home last night, but picked it up afterwards and destroyed Edmonton in a lovely manner. Now Vancouver faces its first back-to-back home-and-road of the season. They flew right out to Calgary after last night's game, in order to be ready for tonight's game.

Well, the opponent. The Flames have finally hit that big change this summer, with both Jarome Iginla and Miikka Kiprusoff leaving the team. Joey Macdonald and Karri Ramo now need to fill that big gap in goal, while Mark Giordano takes over the captaincy. They're not a complete shoe-out, though, because their roster has a lot of well-known names, including former Canuck Shane O'Brien.

Let's make this change a living hell. Coconuts go!
