Note the start time, due to the pre-game ceremonies honouring #19, Marcus Naslund. He was a great player for the Canucks, gave it his all, and just like every Captain in team history failed to bring home the big prize. It wasn't for a lack of effort or caring, but somehow he became a lightening rod for fan discontent. And that goes with the territory I suppose. In any case, it is time for forget all that and put his name where it belongs, up in the rafters. (And it shouldn't have to be said but for all you Naslund haters, now is not the time (or the thread) to speak up). It'll be good to see him get a proper appreciation for his efforts.
Oh, and after that there is a hockey game. Lightening vs the Canucks. Stopping Stamkos and that pesky little St. Louis would be a good idea. And don't worry about stopping Vinny he is injured. Lots of Canucks injured too, Raymond, and Erhoff join Salo in the injured ward, while Samuelsson looks like he might return. We can't use injuries as an excuse given Lecavalier is hurt.
The Bolts lost 3-2 in the shootout to the Oil last night, so they're trying to salvage the roadtrip by getting the two points.
And Schneider gets the start in net.
