You're Hot And You're Cold - Canucks vs Flyers Gamethread

Canucks host the Flyers, who have been on a roller coaster ride this season.

If an NHL team were to be compared to a roller coaster this season, that would be the Flyers. Up until the Oilers took the reins in November, the previously strong Philly team was a laughingstock through October. Since then, they have pulled off a strong end to November, followed by both losing and winning streaks in December. They now sit at 40 points after 38 games, which is strong enough for 3rd in the obviously awful Metropolitan division.

The Flyers are making their now annual Western Canada tour now, and are coming off a 4-3 SO win over Edmonton. The Canucks are coming off a shutout in Calgary last night, so let's keep the momentum going.

Coconuts go!
