Win or lose, this streak has been fun. Just play your game, boys, and let the chips fall where they may.
We play on the edge. Playing a team this gifted, there is a good chance we'll end up on the wrong side. A couple of mistakes and we're down 2-0.
Glad to see Dubi back.
When I look at our lines, I feel far different about them than when I did at the beginning of the year. More confident. There still isn't anything like the Sedin twins in there, but there is some danger in there for other teams if they aren't careful.
Both teams slightly improved since we beat them last week. They have Luongo in net. We have Dubi back. The added confidence of a sweep of Detroit tips the balance in our favor. Jackets in another close one.
Dunno how this one will turn out. I believe in the Jackets' ability to keep outworking the opposition (esp. with Dubi back) but there's no doubt the Canucks locker room is under a sense of urgency - they have to be.
I'll guess 3-2 Canucks in OT but it can really go any way. Should be an... eventful match.
