Hard to predict this game. Would be awesome if Thomas plays a bad game as when he does it is REALLY a BAD game.

Whoa, a rare late GDT.

Thanks Wet.

Anyways, I'm going 2-1 Bruins on this one.

Not getting to see the game. Got free tickets to the VSO, and my wife's unexpectedly brimming with anticipation.

Well, maybe I'll check out the 1st period at Roxy Burger or something before the show.

Close one tonight: 2-1 or 3-2 Canucks.

That would be awesome. The Bruins are my second favorite team in the league, so I'd be happy with any outcome.

The return of Milan Lucic - a good East Vancouver boy.

The Vancouver Giants honoured him Friday night complete with being recognized by the Giants with his induction into their ring of honour and of course the obligatory Lucic Bobblehead - his take on the iconic nodding figure:

“The nose can use a little work,” Lucic said, eliciting gales of laughter from reporters. “You can definitely tell by the side profile there, it doesn't have the bump that I am kind of famous for... the old Serbian nose that I get from my family.”

And then there was the red hair underneath the bobblehead helmet. Lucic is a brown-haired guy so that surprised him, too.

“I guess you could say it's red,” Lucic noted after closely examining the colour. “You know, it's funny. When we made the playoffs with the Giants, that's what we did. We did red Mohawks and I guess that's what they went with here.”


He can add it to his previous Bobbleheads - From the Bruins Winter Classic in 2009:


And:



The Bruins have been in town for the last few days and had a little fun with him during practise at the Pacific Coliseum where he played junior with the Vancouver Giants.
Following the Bruins' practice at Pacific Coliseum, the East Vancouver kid was egged on by Boston coach Claude Julien and his teammates to take a victory lap. So to considerable hooting and hollering, Lucic obliged by skating around the Coliseum ice surface waving his left arm to 16,000 empty seats.

“My teammates knew my last game in this building was May 27, 2007 when we won the Memorial Cup,” explained Lucic, who will be inducted Friday into the Giants' Ring of Honour. “Obviously it was a special day for myself and the Vancouver Giants and they saw the banner up there with myself, No. 27 Milan Lucic, so they were bugging me a little bit and made me take the victory lap. It was actually Claude's idea. It was fun. We had a good little laugh.”
http://www.vancouversun.com/sports/B...#ixzz1F60nBTYI

For those unfamiliar with the legend of Milan Lucic there was THE SHIFT during the Memorial Cup finals. Four minutes in he set the tone for the game with three huge hits on three Medicine Hat Tigers and then dropped the gloves to administer a beating when challenged. Lucic was subsequently named Memorial Cup MVP and the Vancouver Giants were Memorial Cup champs.


Unfortuantely the Friday game did not have a storybook ending as the Chilliwack Bruins posted a with a 6-4 come-from-behind victory.

Lucic's stats were not eye-popping as he notes:

“You look at my stats in my draft year, I had only nine goals and 10 assists and a bunch of penalty minutes [149],” Lucic said. “I think I had 25 fights and that was the main reason I got drafted. Boston was kind of in a re-development stage and they needed some jam in their lineup.”

However the Bruins like what they saw.
Bruins chief amateur scout Scott Bradley remembers Lucic in his draft year and concedes the ex-Giant has pretty much exceeded all expectations.

“It's been a pleasant surprise,” Bradley said. “We saw the character, obviously, and the willingness to put his body on the line and do whatever it takes to get it done. When I was scouting him, I saw improvement every game, which is a good sign, and that improvement from game-to-game is what really intrigued me. It looks to be a good pick now.”
http://www.vancouversun.com/sports/B...#ixzz1F67gyJUl

In his draft year the Canucks took Michael Grabner #14 overall and did not have another pick until round 3 as they had traded their second round pick second-round pick (46th overall) to Buffalo for goalie Mika Noronen who would play but 4 games for the Canucks. Boston selected him 50th overall in the 2006 NHL entry draft. Oh what might have been. Mind you he probably does not work all that hard a t practise so Ron Delorme would have passed on him.

So how do you think this would look on the Canucks?

As much as I'd love for that to be true, their expected standings at the end of the year are just way too wrong for me to believe in that at this point.

Vancouver Canucks - 51-24-7-109
San Jose Sharks 45-28-9-99
Detroit Red Wings 44-32-6-94
Los Angeles Kings 46-33-3-95
Chicago Blackhawks 38-31-13-89
St. Louis Blues 42-36-4-88
Phoenix Coyotes 41-37-4-86
Calgary Flames 39-35-8-86
Nashville Predators 38-34-10-86
Dallas Stars 40-37-5-85
Colorado Avalanche 38-37-7-83
Edmonton Oilers 36-35-11-83
Anaheim Ducks 39-39-4-82
Columbus Blue Jackets 35-35-12-82
Minnesota Wild 33-42-7-73

Washington Capitals 51-27-4-106
Pittsburgh Penguins 47-27-8-103
Boston Bruins 45-32-5-97
New Jersey Devils 49-28-5-102
Buffalo Sabres 47-32-3-95
Philadelphia Flyers 43-31-8-94
Carolina Hurricanes 44-33-5-93
Tampa Bay Lightning 45-35-2-92
Ottawa Senators 39-32-11-89
Montreal Canadiens 37-30-15-89
Toronto Maple Leafs 41-36-5-87
New York Rangers 38-37-7-83
New York Islanders 36-38-8-80
Atlanta Thrashers 31-38-13-75
Florida Panthers 32-44-6-70

Also, those are without deadline deals and stuff

Really pumped for this game! It's a contender from the East vs. a contender from the West. It's the best goalie in the NHL vs. arguably the best offensive duo in the NHL. I think what the game will come down to, as usual, is special teams. I don't see a lot of scoring - if any - at even strength so the Canucks are gong to want to make sure they connect on the PP. Hopefully they receive more than ONE PP in the game so they have a shot at accomplishing that goal. Surprisingly, Boston has a fairly mediocre PK this year. It only ranks 18th, although their Road PK ranks a bit higher than their overall percentage at 12th (82.4%). I repeat, it's VERY important that the Canucks take advantage of whatever calls they get as it may be the only way to put some goals on the board when the forwards are being checked by the likes of Chara, Boychuk, and Seidenberg.

Another note: Patrice Bergeron of the Bruins is a close competitor with Kesler for the Selke this year. He's also the Bruins' leading scorer so the Canucks will be seeing a lot of him tonight.

Should be a great game! Nothing like a matchup like this on Saturday night on HNIC!

GO CANUCKS GO!!

EDIT: Another thing is the Bruins have the 4th best road record in the league, so don't expect a team that's necessarily at a disadvantage playing away from home. On the other hand, the Canucks have the best home record in the league, so something's gotta give.

I think if we win tonight, Edmonton will no longer be able to catch up with us mathematically. It's that time of year folks! We're in the last twenty, the stretch drive!

Boston has one of the best pks so it will be good to see how the pp shapes up.

When was the last time a team led the league in both goals for and goals against?

The dominate Montreal Canadiens in the late 70s.. 1976-77 I think it was.

Lucic was an enormous reach at his draft position. It's absurd for him to come up in a "shoulda, coulda" type of post.
