It never mattered to me when we played them, who gives a shit about a hockey team in the desert that can't even fill half their arena. But tonight it matters, this is a 4 point game for us, with a deuce in regulation we can leapfrog over the Coyotes, and while they have been holding games in hand on us, they squandered one in Calgary on Tuesday night, and the Canucks better not come out and give it back to them tonight.
Regardless of the outcome, I want to see Riberio get run over tonight every time he touches the puck.

Now would be a great time to go on a bit of a streak and win 7 or 8 of the next 10. Anaheim, Colorado, Phoenix and Dallas have been faltering of late, and if we want to hang with the Californian teams we need a great December.
herb wrote:^ Some of the teams above the Canucks in the standings have probably produced points at an unsustainable rate so far. Consider that Phoenix is currently on a 105 point pace. Historically, about about 95 points has gotten teams the 7th or 8th seed in the Western Conference; if that rings true again, the Canucks should be fine in terms of getting a playoff spot.
