Vancouver heads into the bye week after hosting the Flyers tonight. The break can’t come soon enough for some Canucks bloggers, who will need the time to replenish their stocks of both piss and vinegar.

One final game before the Canucks get a negotiated five-day break. Given the horrible record of teams coming off their bye weeks — 3-12-4 — the Canucks would be well-advised to win tonight. (Here’s a link to a Puck Daddy story on teams’ bye-week struggles this season).

Ryan Miller gets the start, coming off his stellar effort in last night’s win. Jack Skille is out, and Reid Boucher draws back in. Michal Neuvirth starts for Philadelphia, and Andrew MacDonald will be a healthy scratch.

For the last time in a week, enjoy the game. Coconuts go!
