Stupid Sportsnet... you all get Canucks games, and I get World Pool Championships. Yay!
HaUGE game tonight, although we could have said that about the last one too.
From Canucks.com: "A regulation loss in this game, coupled with an Avalanche win over Anaheim on Thursday, would push Vancouver four points out of the playoff picture with 15 games remaining."
While we have a game in hand on both COL and NSH, it might not mean much. If we finished the season tied point-wise, at this stage COL beats us on the first tie breaker (head to head), and both teams beat us on the second tie-breaker (wins). We have to leap-frog those two to really be in control of our own destiny, and with the last 9 games of the season being against teams in our own division, this is really our last swing at controlling our destiny with the teams like CHI (oops), CBJ (oops), PHX, STL, and NAS (gulp).
But I want to remain positive, so we'lll go with this: Ohlund appears to be injured (knee?) so Bourdon has been recalled, which means we're back to the MASH Unit defense, which has so outplayed our "original 6" it's disgusting. C'mon Luc! Another bomb from the point would make for a good day.
Pyatt - 13 game without a goal
Daniel - 6 games no goal, 4 games pointless
Markus - 6 games pointless
Henrik - 2 pts in las 6 games
Miller (yes Aaron) - 1 assist last 6 six games (tied with Daniel, and 1 up on Markus, nipping at Hank! He's a machine!)
Weaver - 66 game pointless streak. (granted, he's only played in 43... but still.)
It's easy to conclude then that I blame this mess on Weaver. Sigh...
April is still gonna be to gross to be golfing here in Saskabush, so I really don't want to be finished the season quite yet...
Here's hoping for a Canucks win that looks unreal, and makes us all (sortof) forget the last few games, and be talking about how this team is built to go three rounds deep!
