If the 2-4 eastern road trip didn’t completely kill the Canucks’ playoff hopes, a loss tonight against the Calgary Flames surely will. Then the trickle of ‘Jim Benning is a drooling idiot’ pre-deadline articles we’ve seen over the last couple days will become a flood. Bliss!

That has to go for the local hockey media, too.

Matt Bartkowski draws in to the Calgary Flames lineup for the first time this season. No word on whether Beth Bartkowski will be in the stands at the Rog tonight.

Jayson Megna will start the game on the first power-play unit (!), while Reid Boucher sits and Brendan Gaunce draws back in.

Enjoy the game, everyone. Coconuts Go!
