Enemy territory: On the Forecheck
The Canucks did what they needed to against the bottom-dwelling Alberta teams to snap the losing skid, but that is just the start. They need to carry that momentum forward, as the stretch to the Olympics is full of fascinating and difficult opponents. Tonight, they host the Predators, who are still trying to stay alive. They are currently 8 spots out of a wildcard spot, although still 10 points ahead of the Alberta sluggers.
Tonight's gamethread title is brought to you by Russell Crowe. I caught my mom watching Gladiator this morning, and it seemed appropriate for our current situation.
