Game Day Post: Penguins at Canucks

It only took three years, but finally, Sid the Kid will play his first game in Vancouver.

There were a whole pile of links in yesterday's post. Here's a few more today:

Needless to say, I'm excited about tonight's game and I'm hoping to get there early enough to take some pics at warmups.

Besides Crosby, there should be some intriguing subplots. Can Kesler stop Crosby? Can Louie? Who will Ruutu piss off? How does last year's backup (Sabourin) fare as a starter? The Penguins - minus Mark Recchi, who, incidentally, was claimed by the Atlanta Thrashers this morning - are 2-0 on this Western Canada road trip so far and playing a bit better. However, they lost Marc-Andre Fleury to some sort of ankle injury against Calgary on Thursday night.

Since that brutal Nashville game on November 1st, the Canucks are 6-0-1 at home. On their last homestand, Luongo of course recorded three consecutive shutouts, and actually, the team hasn't allowed a goal at GM Place since the first period of the November 18 game against the Calgary Flames. And after a successful three-game road trip - tonight's game is a short pit stop at home before they head out on the road for another four games - I hope they can keep the roll going.
