I'll Give You A Winter Prediction: Canucks @ Sharks

New, comments

"It's gonna be cold, it's gonna be grey, and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life."

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

T-minus 19 games to go...

Vancouver starts their first of two games through California. You can guess how bad this will get without much thought.

Sorry Tankers, Vancouver is still stuck at 8%. At least someone temporarily upset Edmonton for that #1 pick.

Vancouver would like to remind you that they haven't lost in San Jose in quite some time. If you think that has an iota of relevance, then you'll also be warmed by the fact Reimer is in net. Shoot from anywhere and keep those fingers crossed.

One Question

1. Vancouver has now coughed up the lead in the third period for three straight games, twice against San Jose. Can the 'stache teach them out of that hole or shall we chalk this up to fate?

One Observation

If you were curious, it's still a tale of two players at the bottom of the +/- rankings.

Fearless Prediction

These teams have been fairly predictable this week, so with the same lineups, why break the narrative now? Canucks start strong and fade, the Sharks lie in wait for their chances. Call it 4-2 Sharks, but the kids continue to impress in the small ways that give you a glimmer of hope for the fall.

Sure, whatever...GCG.
