Monday Morning Musings

With Saturday night's thrashing of the team from the center of the(ir) universe still fresh in many of our memories, there is no shortage of Canucks coverage today. Here are some for your reading pleasure:
  • The 'Nucks next stop on the road trip is La Belle Province, the hometown of many Canucks. Wouldn't it be great for the team to win one for Viggy, who was once unceremoniously dumped by the Habs? - Jason Botchford (Vancouver Province), Iain MacIntyre (Vancouver Sun)
  • While Roberto Luongo and Alain Vigneault both hailed from Quebec, neither grew up as Habs fans, but as Oilers and Sabres fans, respectively. - Iain MacIntyre (Vancouver Sun)
  • The stop could also be a homecoming of sorts for Jan Bulis, who spent five seasons wearing the red, white and blue. - Jason Botchford (Vancouver Province)
  • One win on the road trip down and the some real work starts tomorrow. The Canucks' next three opponents - Montreal, Ottawa and Buffalo - are all top five teams in the Eastern Conference. The Canadiens are 14-6-3 at home and still hanging around for the Northeast Division lead; the Senators, after a slow start to the season, are 9-1-1 in their last eleven games; and the Sabres have been the class of the Eastern Conference all season and have a whopping seven-point lead on second place New Jersey. - Pierre Lebrun (Canadian Press)
  • Willie Mitchell, who missed Saturday night's game due to a groin pull, will be a game-time decision tomorrow against the Habs. - Jason Botchford (Vancouver Province)
  • The Canucks are also red-hot, having won eight of their last nine games. While Luongo has been a large part of the streak, they are also getting timely contributions from the rest of the lineup. - Tim Wharsby (Globe and Mail)
  • Here's a nice look back on Hockey Day In Canada and the season thus far for all six Canadian teams. - Eric Duhatschek (Globe and Mail)
  • A friend of mine, Ernest Salcedo, and a bunch of his buddies are following the Canucks on their Eastern Conference road trip and blogging about it along the way. Anyone else jealous? - Canucks Week
