Game Day: Canucks at Ducks

Admittedly, expectations of the Canucks were low at the start of the season, and for the first three months, their play kept it that way. Now with the best winning percentage since the Christmas break and a game tonight against the suddenly not-so-mighty Anaheim Ducks, the Canucks are aiming higher:

In a world where Britney Spears goes skinhead, it's no longer strange to think the Vancouver Canucks have a shot at finishing as high as second in the Western Conference should they win their division.

Three months ago you would have been laughed out of town for suggesting either could happen.
Consider this: a win tonight would move the Canucks within five points of the Ducks with a game in hand. That's not funny. That's unbelievable.

Hi J.J.

I'm getting word that Sabourin is to start tonight against the Ducks. Can you confirm this?

Yes, Sabourin is starting tonight.

It's hard to accept Luongo sitting out a big game, but at the same time, he was bound to sit one out. After all, he's started 11 consecutive games.

As much of a barometer the Ducks are for the Canucks, I believe it's more important to win the "more winnable" games. Thinking of it that way, I don't mind a rested Luongo against the Kings on Thursday.

Well whaddya know? We won an unwinnable game with Sabourin in net.

Does this mean we lose against the Kings?
