It’s Feb 16, 2020 and the Canucks are still in first place in the Pacific division. End the season now! I went to one site that gave playoff chance % for the Canucks. I didn’t believe it, so I won’t repeat it.

The Nucks face the Ducks this afternoon. The Ducks are a team that in rebuild mode but still give the Canucks trouble, having taken the last two meetings. The Ducks main issue this year is that they just can’t score. They have four players that have over 30 points but no one over 40 points. For reference, the Nucks have six players over 40 points.

Thatcher Demko gets the start today after Marky stood on his head for the past few games. Tim Schaller gets backs in today.

Let’s all take a nice quiet break this Sunday afternoon and enjoy a hockey game.

Go Canucks Go!
