CANUCKS (12-6-0) at OILERS (6-10-2)

TV: SN



Season series: The Vancouver Canucks have defeated the Edmonton Oilers in all three games they have played this season, most recently a 3-2 win on Nov. 1. Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin have combined for two goals and nine points for Vancouver. Canucks goalie Ryan Miller is 3-0-0 with a 1.95 goals-against average and .929 save percentage. David Perron leads the Oilers with one goal and two assists.

Canucks team scope: Vancouver is one of four teams that has not lost a game in overtime this season and is coming off a 5-0 loss to the Arizona Coyotes on Friday. Miller allowed five goals on 23 shots and has allowed 12 goals in his past three starts. The 34-year-old is undefeated in 10 starts against Edmonton. Forward Radim Vrbata returned to the lineup against his former team after missing two games because of a lower-body injury. He had three shots on goal in 16:27 in his first game in Arizona since signing with the Canucks in the offseason. The Sedins have a combined 150 points in 159 games against the Oilers. The Canucks start a three-game homestand Thursday against the Anaheim Ducks.

Oilers team scope: Forward Taylor Hall returned to the Edmonton lineup in a 2-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday after missing six games because of an MCL sprain. Hall scored his team-leading seventh goal of the season on the power play and had five shots on goal in 20:58. Goalie Ben Scrivens allowed two goals on 30 shots. Scrivens is 0-2-0 against Vancouver this season but has a 2.05 goals-against average and .932 save percentage. Edmonton is on a three-game losing streak and finishes a five-game homestand against the New Jersey Devils on Friday and the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

So WTF is with the Canucks playing these back-to-back situations starting in Edmonton and ending in Vancouver? This week is the third time this has happened this season.

Of course we're going to come home and get crushed by Anaheim tomorrow because we are playing in Edmonton tonight. And this is after a long four day break. Lame.

Speaking of which.

The Cowboys play Sunday night in New York and then Thursday afternoon at home.

And the NFL cares about player health.

Lol. You'd think they could figure it out so that the teams playing the Thursday night game were coming off of their bye week.

Speaking of the Cowboys.....7-3 at the 10 game mark. They're about due for the wheels to come off.....no?

Dude, it's not even a Thursday nighter, it's the second game of the annual Thanksgiving triumvirate so it is a 1:30 PST start.

Further to that nice scheduling for the Seahawks as well as it turns out.

Cards Sunday in Seattle then down the road to SF for the Niners game Thursday night.

Make or break time for Toppers favourite QB and the boyz.

N e way.

Go Canucks go!!
