Your Vancouverrrrrrr Canucks seek to set their season-high winning streak at five games, as they welcome the Arizona Coyotes to Rogers Arena in this much anticipated matchup between the sixth and seventh ranked teams in the Pacific Division.

Tonight's contest may raise such perennial questions such as "was that Shane Doan hit quite legal?" and "why would you put Markus Granlund out to defend a lead in the last minute?," but will not be able to shed more light on whether Bo Horvat or Max Domi is the better NHLer of the ex-London Knight linemates, as Domi continues to rehab a hand injury.

Miller to start.

Burrows back in.

Reid a healthy scratch as he is only arriving today.

Rodin a likely scratch as Burrows returns. Unless they pluck one of those 4th liners and keep both Burrows and Rodin, which is my preference but I don't coach the team.

D stays the same. Does Biega have his games in?

A must win. They all are from here on out but these games against teams like the Avs and Yotes, are must haves.

6-0 Canucks.
The only HW the Canucks need

Myksha Poo continues to endear himself to the coach by skating around like a Jack Russell terrier, doing nothing on either side of the puck... thus giving the team the best chance to win 6-0.
Try to focus on THIS year...

The real question is when is a Canuck player going to score 5 goals and put that Safeway Score & Win contest out of its misery! That has got to be one of the lamest contests ever!

I can only hope so - maybe that's why Wids is predicting the 6-0? Bo with 5 - and one bonus goal?

So I see we are playing the American Hockey League Coyotes tonight. Do you just think they might be tanking?

I'd be happy with a player getting a hattrick.

So who gets Nolan Patrick? The team we played on Monday or the team we are playing tonight?

I'd like to see that too. Gaunce and any one of Megna/Skille/Chapoo can be sent down, and I don't see any of them being picked up off of waivers.

When was it do you think Wilbrod discovered the magic of whiteboard/clipboards?
