Out PP is still ranked #1? That is shocking. Must mean a lot of other teams really suck

well, at least we don't have to worry about our way home, plenty of time to travel back to St. Louis
it still sucks that travel BS last time costs us 2-4 points

other positive notes:
Nucks killer Steen with a great comeback from IR, expect a good game from him
Nucks 2nd game of a B2B

they will come hard at us, I guess its not their game plan to lose both games to start the week
so IMO a tough but pretty winable one, especially if our boys play like in the last few games

let's go Blues!

You think you can out-suck us on the PP? Not bloody likely.

I have never heard of that before. Cool.

And yeah, don't worry about the Blues bringing their A game tonight. They won't need it.

Canucks are in the midst of their version of our 5-8-2 stretch. They'll get back on track sooner or later, hope it's later.

Will someone please get those stats out of our 10%-assed GDT. Stats and graphics have no place here.

The Blues, with their amazing PK vs the Canucks, and their struggling PP equals?

Lots of Vancouver goals.

Hope I'm wrong!

It's just an inhabitant of Canada, I believe. I'm not sure the about the origins of the whale of their jersey. Maybe just being a coastal city? I don't know.

No. Slang term for Canadian.

Yes, orcas are a local species. There are several pods cruising around off the coast. Whale watching charters are a popular tourist activity in the summer months, when the rain here is warmer. Also, when the Griffiths family sold the Canucks in the 90's, the guys who bought it ran both it and the Grizzlies under the Orca Bay Sports and Entertainment parent company. They also owned the stadium too, IIRC. See below.

Andandand it's a reference to Johnny Canuck, the Canadian lumberjack equivalent of Uncle Sam (and a character whose visage would make for a half-decent logo in my humble opinion.)

History lesson over. I'll go back to my side of the river now.
