Will the luck o' the Irish shine upon the Canucks tonight? Or will everyone be too drunk to notice?
Tonight we have a chance to set a team record for consecutive home victories. Hands up - anyone who thought that would be happening this year? Despite a Luongo who isn't 100% (but 1.89 GAA during the home run), this team is still rolling. Despite a Sundin who's absent from the scoresheet, this team is winning. We're being led by our role players, and that's excellent. Burrows and Kesler own this team right now. We've been looking for leadership - and now we've found it.
It seems like these guys are taking it one game at time. The occasional let down is ok, but the only question remaining is, "Can this momentum carry into late March and beyond?". The schedule is nice for a change, so it could happen. Tonight they face a banged up Dallas team that's missing : Fabian Brunnstrom, Jere Lehtinen, Brenden Morrow, Mark Parrish, Toby Petersen, Brad Richards, Sergei Zubov.
I'll say it now: As things stand, this team is capable of winning a 7 game series against any team in the league. NHL.com PreviewCanucks.com Game NotesTHN.com TooT(CTRL+Click to open in a new window)GO CANUCKS GO!
PS: Tonight Brodeur is going for the All time wins record - but more importantly, trying to beat the Hawks.
