Gamethread #21: Canucks vs Wild

Which Canucks team shows up tonight?

NHL: Minnesota Wild at Vancouver Canucks Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

I am sure you have seen this, but in case you need a reality check....

I could watch that all day, and I might do that if the Canucks don’t get there crap together today. The Canucks are 4-4-2 in their last 10 games and I don’t see any easy games in the near future. And by future I mean the rest of the season. I think i want to see Juolevi soon as he might be an improvement at this point over Pouliot. I might even suggest 5 forwards on the PP the way Pouliot runs the point.

Minnesota is 7-3-0 in their last 10 games, but lost the last game to Washington. The Wild are in second place in the conference and are looking to exact revenge on the Nucks for the last time they met.

Every year we get into a discussion about how important/not important faceoffs are. Here is a little stat over the past 7 games for us.

Bo leads the league in taking faceoffs. Bo is going to break soon unless others step up.

If Bo breaks, kiss the season bye-bye.

Enough depressing talk.
