Game Day Post: Flyers at Canucks

It's been six years since the Philadelphia Flyers have been in town. When I was still working at GM Place, I remember the Canucks playing them every New Year's Eve, but of course, they haven't been around since December 31st, 2001. Mind you, the Canucks didn't have much luck against Bobby Clarke's boys in those days - they lost six New Year's Eve games in a row to the Flyers - so it was probably best they scrapped that tradition. Believe it or not, the last time the Canucks won a home game against Philly was in 1989. Tonight, they'll try to break that, er, slump against a team that is, on paper at least, vastly-improved from the one that finished dead-last in the league last year.

The Canucks are coming off a weekend with mixed results. They played horribly against the Sharks on opening night and then put together a good overtime win against the Flames on Saturday. I'm hoping the team that showed up in Calgary shows up tonight.

Another horrible loss for the Canucks. Why the pain at home against the Flyers? It's one of those universal mysteries!
