They have to change that.
I'm always going to miss the ambience as long as I'm not sitting in the MTS Centre.

I do appreciate that they listened to feedback and started showing the anthems after the first dozen games or so.

Canucks have been playing terrible defense the last few games. If you guys got any finish you should be able to take this. I'm sure we'll be playing lethargic while you guys will be buzzing around. Hope I'm wrong, but lately it's seem we haven't been playing with any will lately.

If we are able to scrape together 2 points tonight, and the Sabres, Caps and Florida all crumble I might go into a joy-induced coma. With any luck, i'll be on a respirator at Victoria General this time tomorrow.

According to the SportsClubStats web site, clean wins over Vancouver and Calgary increase our chances of making the playoffs to 67.3% (subject to minor ups and downs based on the results of the other games).

On the other hand, clean losses over the next two nights and our chances of making the playoffs are down to 30%.

These games are HUGE!!!



Actually it doesn't matter that much if the wins are clean or in OT. Regulation losses would be devistating.

This win would put us into a tie for 1st in the SouthEast. Go JETS!!!

I look at tonight as a bit of a no lose situation for us or at least the upside on this game is much greater than the downside. When we look at the last 9 road games most people (even the optimists) would assume this game is a clean loss. If that happens tonight we will turn the page and get ready for Calgary and know that a team with 90 points broke out of their slump and did to us what they have done to everyone this year. However on the flip side if we were to come out of this game with 1, or lord help us 2 points it would be huge. I know the Canucks are in a mini slump and or are preserving mental and physical energy for the long playoff run so maybe we get lucky and that slump extends for one more game . Either way I believe a win is away bigger deal for us than a loss is tonight.

Crazy night all in all. I have the centre ice package and could go crazy channel surfing on the early games but I think I am going to spend time with the family up until 9:00pm then tune into the Jets game and try not to scream at the TV if things are going badly.

This is going to be a huge game for both clubs.

The Jets are motivated to prove that they can be successful on the road, while the Canucks are eager to correct the ship and get back to their winning ways.

I think this will be a tight game that goes to OT.

I hate how long we have to wait for this game.

It's a 10pm game for me in Ontario.

On the TSN Jets feed I can hear what is happening on the ice, hear the fans, and jar the announcers fine.
I really don't need the fan noise to be increased just so I can say, wow it sure is loud. We know it is loud.

Is it game time yet? One good thing - will be able to see a good chunk of the other important Eastern Conference games before the Jets - Canucks tilt. Such an important game tonight, for many reasons. Shed the "bad road team" image (4-3 in last 7 is at least getting respectable), and playing one of the premiere teams in the league. Will be interesting to see how the recent good play of the Jets will match up against the SC finalist.

Antsy. Time for a beer.

Dude, is it really smart to stay up at night just to watch hockey? Can't be healthy. It's just a game...

Well for me West Coast games usually end at 12-1230ish...much more manageable than STARTING at 4am . And I usually go to bed at 1-2am anyways...

I don't mind the fact that it's late.

I just hate waiting.

I hope the Jets take a "come at me bro" approach to this game.

Because when you tell someone "come at me bro", they'll usually back off.

At least that's been my experience anyways.



And we all know the Sedin sisters will not come at any bro, that also includes Burrows who would just bite a bro's finger.

I have to go to a dinner for work tonight, that coincidentally ends at about 8:30

Half hour to get home and sit with a full belly and watch the game

Then an early morning meeting tomorrow






................ but with a win tonight, I won't care
