Vancouver at Calgary

The 82-game marathon kicks off tonight for the Canucks when they open the 2014.15 regular season at the Scotiabank Saddledome battling their divisional rival, the Flames.

There are very few games on the calendar that are as hotly anticipated as opening night and this season's first outing is no exception. If anything, there is an even greater amount of hype surrounding the start of this year's campaign. After a disastrous 2013.14 season that resulted in an extensive housecleaning in the summer, there is a new sense of optimism and hope surrounding the team thanks to the influx of newcomers who will make their respective Canuck debuts tonight including Radim Vrbata, Nick Bonino, Linden Vey as well as the new number one netminder in town, Ryan Miller. One relative newcomer who won't be debuting tonight, however, is Bo Horvat. The 19-year-old former first rounder, who at least for the time being has made the opening night roster, is nursing an upper-body injury sustained in the pre-season. Veteran blue-liner Kevin Bieksa will also be a game-time decision.

The Flames, like the Canucks, are looking forward to seeing what some of their new players can bring to the table starting tonight as they begin their journey to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2008.09. Among those new players are goaltender Jonas Hiller, defenceman Deryk Engelland and forward Mason Raymond, the latter formerly of the Canucks. The list of new players debuting won't include the fourth overall pick in this past summer's NHL Entry Draft, Sam Bennett, who is sidelined with a shoulder injury that is going to delay the start of his NHL career indefinitely. This is the first of four meetings between the Canucks and Flames this season. Vancouver swept its five-game season series against Calgary last season.

Puck drop at 7 pm PT – Live on Sportsnet,

Those ref cams blew my mind. But they also look like an accident waiting to happen. Surely they could have gotten something more streamlined.

The cams might have given us the Vrbata goal though, so that's something.

I'm liking the third line and crossing fingers for the second. Goaltending looks strong. Defence didn't mess up as much as feared. Edler only screwed the pooch the once. They all looked inspired. Better attitude this year, I think.

I'm hopeful.

Vancouver vs Edmonton

The new-look Canucks take to Rogers Arena ice for the first time this season when they host the Oilers in their home opener tonight.

It wasn't a perfect outing on Wednesday in Calgary for the Canucks but, as far as season openers go, it was not a bad way to start. Not only did the good guys come away with a 4-2 win to get their campaign started on the right foot, but they also received goal production from three players who will need to be key contributors this season if they are to make a return to the playoffs – namely Alex Burrows, Zack Kassian and Radim Vrbata. The news wasn't all good for the Canucks, however. Chris Tanev was absent from practice on Thursday and Friday after apparently suffering an undisclosed injury in the win over the Flames. If he's unable to suit up, expect Yannick Weber to slot into the lineup for the first time this season.

The Oilers will be an ornery bunch after being knocked off in their season-and-home opener on Thursday in a 5-2 loss to the Flames. Edmonton should be especially desperate to get in the win column quickly in order to avoid a repeat of their start from a year ago. Last season, the Oilers started off the year with back-to-back losses – their second game was a 6-2 loss in Vancouver – and ended up winning just one of their first eight contests. They finished the season with the worst record in the Western Conference. The Canucks won three of the five head-to-head meetings between the teams last season, although the Oilers closed out the season series with back-to-back victories. Ryan Miller is expected to get the start tonight for the Canucks, while the Oilers will counter with Viktor Fasth.

Me too. As always. :lol:

Getting ready to head out to watch the game tonight. Hope the home opener is a good one.
