Gamethread: #29 Canucks vs Stars

Saturday Matinee against a bubble team of Stars

NHL: Vancouver Canucks at Dallas Stars Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

There always seem to be an early game against Dallas every year. The Canucks had success against the Stars last year, getting 5 out of 6 points in those games. Dallas is a bubble team right now. The Stars are fast and like to hit, but their offence is inconsistent. They can score 5 or 6....or have trouble getting one goal. With guys like Benn, Seguin and Radulov, you would expect more. And each of those players have 20 or more points, but the rest of the team struggles.

As for the Canucks, they lost to the Golden Knights but it could have been worse. Edler was practicing Friday after getting run over. Eddy might want to sit out the next game with Vegas as it seems they want to kill him. Gudbranson and his neck might be back for the next game. Jay Beagle also skated in practice. If all play, then the Canucks are only really missing Sven.

I know this may be a lightly attended game here, so let’s at least have some GIF fun if you are around.
