Talk about two teams headed in opposite directions.
After their 4-1 win last night over the Colorado Avalanche, the Canucks have now won 6 games in a row. The loss was the Avs’ 4th in a row and 8th in their last 9 games.
Also, with Alex Burrows reunited with the Sedins, the first line once again looks rejuvenated and accounted for 3 of the team’s 4 goals.
That’s good news for Canucks fans.

In their last home game before the trade deadline, the Canucks take on the Colorado Avalanche.

Welcome back to Rogers Arena!
We’ll be joined by the Colorado Avalanche tonight, and tickets are so in demand they’re going on Craigslist for half price. Huzzah!
SOB is a healthy scratch for Col tonight. Does that mean a trade back to the #Canucks is in the works? #TGATTChris Baldwin
Minutes away from puck drop at Rogers Arena. Let’s hope this one is a bit more … um … entertaining than Tuesday’s game. #canucksHosea Cheung
@hosea24hours Wait, there was a game on Tuesday? Why can’t I remember that?Andrew Ngo
Canucks keys to the game according to Sportsnet? "Powerplay!!!" That’s right. Three exclamation points. They mean business.Wyatt Arndt
Four and half minutes into the game, and Christ on a Cracker, the Canucks score! Goal by Alex Burrows, who seems to have missed his DNA sharing linemates.
Canucks Vs Avs – Alex Burrows 1-0 Goal – 03.28.13 – HDcanuckshd
A regulation goal. I swear they just scored one. This is good. This is good. 1-0 #Canucks, 5 mins into 1st. #BOOMCanucks Game
That was ridiculous. Daniel to Henirk To Burrows. It never gets old. #WizardousSedinery 1-0 good guys #TGATTKent Basky
Ahhh… Some Sedinery finally. Sedin to Sedin to Burrows and goal. #Canucks up 1-0 early. #TGATTCanucks Hockey Blog
Burrows, Hank, Dank. That felt right. That felt right. #canucks @vancanucks @canucksgame #TGATTJay Jones
And Alex Burrows shows that he doesn’t want to get taken off the 1st line again #toobadHiggy #canucksTurtle
That goal was more dope than a Lance Armstrong dinner. #Canucks #BurrowsSpencer
That goal is reminiscent of the good old days. #CanucksVancouver Canucks Oz
The Canucks continue to look strong throughout the first period.
The Avs flight delayed out of Calgary? They sure haven’t shown up yet.Kirk Paul
…Or at least for five more minutes. Then they decide that Schneider can take it from there
In Schneids we trust #canucks @vancanucks @canuckshockey @canucksgame #TGATT <a href="http://t.co/izzAJFoHQ1" class="">pic.twitter.com/izzAJFoHQ1</a>Jay Jones
Schneids looked back twice to see if that went in. Luckily it didn’t #CanucksMar
Okay #Canucks, forcing Cory to be specatular in order to bail out the rest of you is not an acceptable game plan. Smarten up! #tgattgerimaple
DESCHNEID. Just, don’t even bother trying anymore Avs. #TGATTluonGOLD
Cory Schneider is a monster. Wow. Even you @BrowntoBure have to be impressed.Shane M
That’s a wrap on the first, but whoever is in charge of lighting in the arena must not have enjoyed the game so far.
Whoever is doing the lights in Vancouver is a real dickhead #nhl #canucks <a href="http://t.co/HOJWZUrizn" class="">pic.twitter.com/HOJWZUrizn</a>Brady Shaw
Or perhaps it was the quality of ice he disapproved of, it wasn’t great, but at least we know who to blame.
Bob Seger ruined the ice.Justine Galo

Dammit Bob Seger.
The second period brings us back to the fun we had on Monday vs Columbus, and this time I don’t even have plane ticket purchases to entertain me.
I have no idea what happened in the dressing room during intermission but HOLY! where did all the action go this is now boring #TGATTDeborah D Burke
When did the #Canucks turn into the Jacques Lemaire era Minnesota Wild?? #tgattJustine Galo
On the plus side, Cory seems to be cool with winning this one himself.
So that goalie who just isn’t a proven starter has been playing amazing for several games now. Too bad he’s not a proven #1 #sarcasm #TGATTVictoria
That’ll bring us to the second intermission and some furry friends can weigh in with their thoughts on the game.
#TGATT #TGATB (the game according to Bernard) better than vs CBJ, but not by much… <a href="http://t.co/whVnkSHdFE" class="">pic.twitter.com/whVnkSHdFE</a>Chuk
And we’re back.
This game is going by so quickly compared to Tuesday..Alyssa Kupila
Schneider’s shutout steak ends at 111 minutes and 33 seconds, with the first shot of the period. Goal by Duchene. 1-1.
1-1 now. On the bright side, looks like our chances of seeing another riveting shootout have increased. #snoozerMarcus Anderson
Guess the Canucks strategy of playing terrible terrible hockey to hold the league didn’t pan out…Spencer
With 8 minutes left in the game, Canucks take a 2-1 lead. Hamhuis to Burrows to Daniel to net.
Canucks Vs Avs – Daniel Sedin 2-1 Goal – 03.28.13 – HDcanuckshd
well… the team getting outplayed scores one. hey, that’s us! Daniel snaps his streak and it’s 2-1 #Canucks #TGATTKent Basky
Daniel bumps the slump. Previously pointless in 4, 1 goal in 13 games. #Canucks lead 2-1.Matt Lee
Now back to your regularly scheduled defensive posture – nothing to see here — AV.Kirk Paul
After the Canucks score, the organist at Rogers Arena plays Chris’ favorite song, Gangnam Style.
AND GANGNAM STYLE ON THE ORGAN!?! #Canucks #TGATTChris Golden
"@lyteforce: AND GANGNAM STYLE ON THE ORGAN!?! #Canucks #TGATT" did @cbaldwin74 get up and polka? He’s part German, ya knowJustine Galo
On my rather short bucket list: play organ at Rogers Arena for a game. RT @lyteforce: AND GANGNAM STYLE ON THE ORGAN!?! #Canucks #TGATTClay Imoo
Less than 2 minutes left in the game and the Avs pull their goalie.
Henrik can’t let his linemates score every goal, so he gets one for himself.
Canucks Vs Avs – Henrik Sedin 3-1 Goal – 03.28.13 – HDcanuckshd
YuP the red head connection all the way from the goalie. Cory to Hank #Canucks #tgattJustine Galo
It ain’t over yet, Higgins gets in on the empty net sweepstakes to make it 4-1.
Canucks Vs Avs – Chris Higgins 4-1 Goal – 03.28.13 – HDcanuckshd
YOU GET AN EMPTY NET GOAL! YOU GET AN EMPTY NET GOAL! EVERYONE GETS AN EMPTY NET GOAL!Jenn Johnson
So THAT’S all the Canuck needed to start filling the back of the net… No one protecting the front of it! #offensiveDon
Higgins just won a car according to Garrett #emptynetter #TGATTElmee Baterina
C’mon Colorado, pull the goalie again! HAVE YOU NO COURAGE?!Seamus McKale
Canucks win. That’s six in a row, pretty good streak for a team will all seem to agree isn’t playing their best. Oh well, we’ll take it.
Sedins & Schneider = Red Head Redemption (gamers what?) 4-1 #Canucks win #tgattJustine Galo
Great game for Burrows & the Guys! #GnomePower #Canucks Woot!!! #TGATT <a href="http://t.co/SKvLtpuzOK" class="">pic.twitter.com/SKvLtpuzOK</a>Jacqueline B
Six wins in a row but there is still a whole lot wrong with the #Canucks, can’t wait for the media rants tmr. #tgattJustine Galo
Is this the worst 6-game winning streak in NHL history? Whatever. I’ll take it. #DealWithItPhil
Style points loss!!!! Whatever. Beyond caring how it gets done right now. Win, plug the holes at center and move forward, dammit #TGATTKent Basky
Pretty solid start to a long weekend.
