Double Down: Preview & Gamethread: Canucks vs Knights

Vancouver faces the dominating Golden Knights in Vegas. I wonder if any of the players will remember this game after gambling all night.

Let's start with the good news. The Canucks have only lost to this Vegas team once in all of NHL the regular season. Yes!

The rest of the news is not so good. The Golden Knights are still the Western Conference leaders and really don't have a weak point to their game. They have no super stars, they have survived 75 injuries to their goalies and have beaten all the good teams this year. This team under Gallant has made George McPhee look like a friggin genius, after we all laughed at his expansion drafting.

The Canucks are coming off an overtime loss....after blowing a 4-1 lead. Oh and having their PK destroyed by the quick passing of the Avalanche.

Let's hope the Canucks can shake off the slot machine blues and come to play.
