Rival territory: Defending Big D

Ever since that big hit the other night, we've all been pulling each other's hair, discussing what Jannik Hansen deserves. Many Chicago fans wanted his head on a silver platter. Many Vancouver fans believed he was completely innocent. Eventually, it comes down to what Brendan Shanahan decides, and he saw reason to give Beaker a one-game suspension. Among some fans, this was expected as the most the Shanahammer would lay down. Many other fans aren't happy with it, but that's often the way the cookie crumbles.

Hansen will serve his suspension tonight, as the Canucks visit the Stars. Last week, we saw Dallas pounce on Vancouver's lack of focus during an emotional game. This time, the Canucks need to maintain their focus, and make sure their defensive game is much better than it has been over the last few games.

Pay attention to the game, boys. Coconuts go!
