too bad we aren't catching the nucks at home as we could line match them very effectively. With Kesler injured, they are a one line team. Stop the sedins and you win as (so aptly put by one of their fans last night) the canucks bottom 9 is lottery team quality.

The key to winning will be to stay out of the box and limit the icing calls. The sedins are on the ice after every icing call. Offensive zone start vs a tired line is a huge part of their ES scoring stats.

One other thing pointing to the canucks' demise is the fans' belief that the team is not tough enough. An aggressive skating team will give them problems and we saw that last night. This is Krueger's master plan for success and the canucks are ideal opposition to prove this can work.
