LGD: Ew, The Canucks

Tonight will be a battle between two proud and  franchises, with the Toronto Maple Leafs being proud of their rich history and the Vancouver Canucks being proud to… Uh….

The Canucks, their supporters, and disappointing fan sites would have you believe that their team is still relevant, but that just isn’t the case anymore. Their past, present and future is bleak at best, and Cory Schneider is one of their all-time greats. He didn’t even play 100 games for them! Good grief!

The Leafs

There will be no significant changes to this two-game win streak juggernaut, not even Frank Corrado will get to suit up against the team that drafted him. If Vancouver wants to keep pace with Toronto tonight, they’ll need to find a way to hold Nazem Kadri down…

Alexandre Burrows is on their fourth line? Hahaha, wow!

Starting Goaltenders

James Reimer will appear in his seventh straight start this evening. He’s been excellent, even if the team in front of him hasn’t been. Ryan Miller is in net for the Canucks – he’s lost his last four appearances against offensive powerhouses like the Ottawa Senators, New Jersey Devils and Buffalo Sabres.
