I don't want to jinx, but this sentence probably does....the Canucks are very close to having a 70% penalty kill. Maybe there is something to this coaching a system thing. The Canucks lost their last game due to some boneheaded plays in their own end. Those plays have been less but playing a good team like Vegas does remind you that blindly passing the puck to no one is a bad idea.
The Canucks have some sort of winning streak against California teams right now and that would usually mean that a back up goalie comes in and beats the Nucks. Unfortunately, when you want the Canucks to lose and get a better draft spot, they find a way to win. So, I really have no fucking clue what to expect tonight except Petey and Miller will get a point each.

Gameday Battle Hymn
Kent usually picks some loud metal band and he has a great story about them that ties into hockey. I am not Kent, especially when it comes to music. Although his German metal band was a jinx in the last game. Tonight I choose Vancouver's own, Odds. I wish I was someone like Kent...someone who is cool
Here is a gif!!!
Go Canucks Go!
