The Canucks are home again. um......yeaaa? The Canucks over the past few years have had some real trouble winning at home. This year is no different, with the Nucks going 3-4-2. I really wish someone would analyze what the hell happens at home and email the results to the coaching staff. I mean besides the obvious sucky PP. (14.6% at home)
Maybe fortunes can change tonight as the Canucks play a team that has never beaten them. Never. Do you know how rare that is in sports that one opponent has never beaten the other. I like our chances. I wonder if the people at fellow SBN blog Knights on Ice, are writing the same narrative...."Canucks have never beaten us!!!" Actually, they have a better case after a 9-4 preseason ass-whooping of the Nucks.
The Golden Knights (wow...that name sucks) are using their back-up, back-up, back-up goalie. Maybe they can be the new goalie graveyard NHL. Having said that, Vegas is second in the division. I know. This season has been all over the place
No Luca Sbisa tonight...so no tribute. I'm disappointed.
