Gamethread #48: Canucks vs Oilers

New, comments

Canucks look to crush the Oilers hopes and dreams again.

NHL: Edmonton Oilers at Vancouver Canucks Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Can you feel the playoff buzz? Of course there are still 34 games left, but there are a lot of chickens being counted. This is the third game in a row that I have said that this game is a must win for the Canucks....and a must lose for Edmonton. I am still waiting for Bo Horvat to get off the schneid and score a goal. If Loui can get three points in a game, why can’t Bo?

Fun Fact: Did you know that the Canucks are 2-0-0 against the Oilers with Petey in the lineup and 100-121-19 without him? Petey is out for tonight, so Bo and Jake better show up then. The Canucks need to stay out of the penalty box tonight, as the Oilers went 2 for 3 the last time the team’s met.

Tonight is #Hockeytalks and while it’s great to have a night to talk about mental health, it is a damn shame to only have a night. Mental health awareness is an everyday conversation and I applaud the NHL for creating a time and place for conversation. Let’s make it more frequent with the realization that everyone is affected in some way.
