It’s Vancouver’s turn to host Hockey Fights Cancer night. However the team is struggling on the ice, nights like tonight put those struggles in perspective. Most of us have been touched in some way by the horrible disease that is cancer. Nights like tonight are an excellent opportunity to reflect and raise money for the continuing battle.

The Canucks will dress Alaska Aces starter and summer free agent addition Michael Garteig tonight. Ryan Miller is ill. Jacob Markstrom will start. In addition, Philip Larsen is out for awhile with a virus. No confirmation on whether his malady is called NotanNHLDefensemanitis.

Enjoy the game tonight, everyone. Lift a glass to a Canucks win, to those battling cancer and to those who have sadly succumbed. Coconuts go!
