Gamethread: Wild vs. Canucks

Beaker’s Back!

NHL: Winnipeg Jets at Vancouver Canucks Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

The return of Jannik Hansen to the Canucks lineup will hopefully bring some much needed speed and energy to the team. Not to put too much pressure on the Great Dane, but we really need him to slot in and be an effective presence on both ends of the rink.

The pregame celebration of Henrik’s 1000th point will be something special to watch as one of our all-time greats recently hit the unofficial Hall of Fame benchmark.

As to tonight’s game... Well I wish that the Wild didn’t bore me so much. For some reason I’ve never been able to enjoy watching the Wild. Likely because they spent so many years playing that slow style where they only aspired to score one or 2 goals a night. Obviously, this team is designed to play more offensively but the legacy of defense first hockey has not been erased from my memory!

Let’s hope that we stop the slide and start putting some W’s in the win column!
