Canucks vs. Flames: NHL Northwest Division Game Day Call
Vancouver Canucks: In a wild playoff race with Minnesota
Preseason favorites, to cruise to the NHL Northwest Division title this season, the Vancouver Canucks find themselves in a neck and neck battle with the Minnesota Wild. After they crushed the Edmonton Oilers 4-0 on Thursday, the Canucks had a day off on Friday and should be well rested tonight. Vancouver is on a 7-2 run and will look to avenge their 4-2 loss to the Flames at the Saddledome in Calgary back on March 3, 2013.
Calgary Flames: (Not) Rebuilding process has begun in the Stampede City
Though the Flames top brass denies the team is rebuilding, Calgary shipped their long term Captain Jerome Iginla to Pittsburgh and top D-Man to St. Louis prior to the trade deadline. Give Calgary credit, particularly Miikka Kiprusoff, for putting up a valiant effort in a 2-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks in California last night. However, the short turn around time, with long travel, will hamper them in this contest in Vancouver tonight.
