After a road trip that saw us break our losing streak, we return home to face the injury riddled Dallas Stars in an afternoon game.

The Canucks have recalled Jake Virtanen after a 2 game stint with Utica. Hopefully that extra playing time helped put Jake back in the right mindset to be a stronger contributor for the good guys!

Daniel Sedin looks to extend his point streak to 4 games! Danny has been really heating up and will need to maintain that level of play if the team hopes to get back into a prime playoff contention!

The Stars are severely depleted as previously mentioned with Cody Eakin, Patrick Sharp, Jason Spezza, Jiri Hudler, Ales Hemsky, Jason Dickinson, and Mattias Janmark all listed as members of the injury list.

Let’s hope that those losses to the Stars make it much easier for the Canucks to get back in the win column today!

Go Coconuts go!
