Game Day: Blue Jackets at Canucks

Just before the Christmas break, the Vancouver Canucks lost 3-2 to the Columbus Blue Jackets in Columbus. It was a bitter loss to one of the worst teams in the Western Conference at the time and I remember many were calling for Luongo's head on a platter.

I'm sure that loss served as a wake-up call.

Since then, the Canucks have been on an unbelievable roll. Immediately afterwards, they rattled off seven consecutive wins; in the 14 games they've played, they failed to get at least a point in only one. Even when they're not on top of their game, they're somehow finding ways - okay, Luongo is - to hang in and be in a position to win in the end.

The Blue Jackets also come to this game on a bit of a hot streak. They've won three in a row - all at home - against Buffalo, Detroit and Minnesota. In fact, the team has been more competitive since Ken Hitchcock took over from Gerald Gallant and are 15-12-3 under his regime.
