Brace For Impact: Canucks @ Sharks

California is probably not where you want to be when staring at a franchise record losing streak.

T-minus six games remaining...

The chances at a top three pick are looking great. The #1 pick is still a reach. Edmonton doesn't play until Saturday against Calgary, at which point there's a very good chance Vancouver will add two more losses and be within one GP of Edmonton. Fingers crossed!

Virtanen is gone, so combined with both short and long term injuries, that's nine Vancouver players not available. Amazing.

Here's maybe all you need to know of the opponent we're sick of seeing: San Jose has scored nine third period goals against Vancouver this season. Nine! Meanwhile Vancouver is almost dead last in goals for in the final frame.

If that doesn't scream one of the many problems Vancouver has, nothing will.

Another Thing That Should Infuriate You

Vancouver is 3-11-1 this March, yet somehow the 2001 Vancouver Canucks managed to be worse with 2-4-6. So, hey, there's a feather in their cap.

If they don't win tonight it'll be the fifth time in franchise history they managed only three wins during the last full month of hockey.

Fearless Prediction

Sad but true: Vancouver deserves to tie their 10-game losing streak record.

3-1 Sharks.

On the bright side, it's less than one month from the draft. Life will have meaning by then.
