The Vancouver Canucks started the season off incredibly hot, seemingly scoring a goal every type one of their players touched the puck and put the smallest of force behind it towards the opposing netminder. Lawfully, they have slipped and become a normal hockey team since then but still find themselves among the top teams in the Western Conference.
Meanwhile, our Minnesota Wild are trying to desperately climb from their downtrodden start and try and find themselves with a postseason opportunity once again.
These two are colliding now in British Columbia and the visitors will need to try and stave off their hungry forwards just long enough to get some of their rejuvenated scoring to work.
