Also the canucks in the past month have moved from 25th or so in 5-on-5 GF/GA ratio up to 7th. They'll likely be in the top 3 or 4 when all is said and done.
This is the part that I find intriguing as the same thing happened last year. The Canucks were less than even in the goals GF/GA in 5-on-5 around November last year and then they took off!! It's happening again and what will determine the success of the team will be health and durability if they continue to play their game.
