A great home opener with both teams pretty well evenly matched although the cream finally rose to the top.....even if it took a lucky goal in the Shootout to make it happen. The guys now have 5 days off before heading to Edmonton on Friday.

The Sedins should sue Tortorella for wasting a year of their career.

Vancouver at Edmonton

After getting six days off to enjoy a 2-0 start to their season, it's back to work for the Canucks tonight when they head into Edmonton for a rematch against the Oilers.

If you've noticed the mood surrounding the Canucks all week has been particularly positive, you're not alone. A perfect start to the season, even if it's just two wins that have come against teams that aren't exactly in the elite category, will do that. With that said, last Saturday's 5-4 shootout win over the Oilers didn't come without hiccups. Vancouver, to their credit, managed to overcome three two-goal deficits in that contest but will certainly want to tighten up defensively tonight against the same Edmonton team that has proven they have the ability to score goals even though they don't seem to have the ability to stop many of them.

Since starting their three-game road trip with that aforementioned 5-4 shootout loss to the Canucks last Saturday, things have gone from bad to worse for the Oilers. They were blown out 6-1 by the Blackhawks on Tuesday and then pounded 7-4 by the Coyotes the next night. To add insult to injury, the Oilers also lost a couple of key contributors to their lineup during their road trip, namely top-line centre Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and backup netminder Viktor Fasth. Nugent-Hopkins, who was injured in last Saturday's game against Vancouver on a hit by Dan Hamhuis, could return to the lineup tonight. Ben Scrivens, who gave up six goals in Edmonton's loss to Arizona on Wednesday, is the likely starter for the Oilers with Fasth sidelined. Canucks coach Willie Desjardins was unwilling to name his starter for tonight's game after yesterday's practice although he did hint that both of his netminders would likely see action this weekend. The Canucks host the Tampa Bay Lightning tomorrow night at Rogers Arena.

I guess we'll find that out tomorrow night when Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning come to town. With a win tomorrow it will equal the Canucks' best ever start to a season!

Vancouver vs Tampa Bay

The Canucks will look to equal their best start to a season in franchise history tonight when they host Steven Stamkos and the Lightning at Rogers Arena.

The last, and only, time the Canucks started a season with four straight wins was back in the 1992.93 campaign – the same season the Lightning entered the NHL as an expansion franchise. Tampa Bay has come a long way since then and, with all due respect to the two Alberta teams that the Canucks have earned their victories against so far, will pose the first true challenge for the unbeaten Canucks in this young season. Vancouver earned a hard-fought 2-0 win last night in Edmonton thanks to a combined six-point performance from the top line of the Sedin twins and Radim Vrbata as well as a 28-save shutout performance by Ryan Miller.

The Lightning, who are kicking off a five-game Western Conference road swing tonight, are looking to rebound from their first regulation loss of the season after falling 2-1 to the Devils on Tuesday. The Lightning have not traditionally fared well when facing the Canucks over the years but last season was an exception as Tampa Bay swept the two-game regular season series, including notching a 4-2 victory at Rogers Arena back on New Year's Day. Tonight's game marks the return of former Canuck Jason Garrison to Rogers Arena. The White Rock-native spent just two seasons in Vancouver before being dealt away at this past June's NHL Entry Draft. Ben Bishop is the likely starter for the Lightning while Eddie Lack, who has yet to appear in a game this season, figures to get the call for the Canucks with Miller having played last night although that could change if Coach Desjardins opts to ride the hot hand. The Canucks may be without the services of defenceman Ryan Stanton as he suffered a lower-body injury in last night's win. If he can't go, expect to see Yannick Weber for the first time this season.

Well, had to happen at some point. They played well, too many penalties though.
