After splitting the two home games against the Winnipeg Jets this week, Vancouver heads to Calgary for a road game, the last game before a four-day Christmas break. Jannik Hansen’s injury means Anton Rodin will make his NHL debut tonight. He’ll play on the second line, while Loui Eriksson will play with the Sedins. Jacob Markstrom goes in goal.

Enjoy the game tonight, everyone. Thanks for taking the time to make up the commenting community that is Nucks Misconduct. I’ve often said this blog is less about the bylines and the content and much more about the people who write the comments. So thanks for letting me write some of the preambles to those comments. I wish all of you the very best of the season, whichever one you and your family celebrate.

I also offer you two songs of the season. One, a new classic from the people behind the underrated animated series Bob’s Burgers:

And the other is the greatest Christmas song ever:

Coconuts Go!
