It's a new season with 2 different teams. Keep playing with the same effort that's magically appeared these last 3 games and it'll be competitive. Go Stars.
yeah believe it or not teams that are much worse than us have beaten Vancouver this year. If they bring their best game we probably don't have much of a chance, but anything less than that and the result is up in the air.
D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Burrows
Raymond - Kesler - Booth
Higgins- Hodgson - Hansen
Bitz - Malhotra - Lapierre
Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Salo (Alberts here if Salo sits)
Rome - Tanev
Look for Luongo to start. The Canucks play their 5th game in 7 days and looked tired against the Devils, I doubt we'll see a repeat of games of last season.
If we get a lead early look for us to shut it down in the third.
Good luck tomorrow, I love waking up making som eggs and bacon and watching hockey.
If we can either win both home games v vancouver or find a way to get 3, 4 or 5 of the 8 pts in the up coming series against Van (min 3), then i don't think our schedule is as bad as people are mentioning.
looking at the chart on remaining games i think we have the same difficulty in our schedule as calgary, LA, and the avs.
