So, we know the Canucks shut out the Devils 2-0 last Tuesday. It wasn’t the most thrilling game, I think the pre-game ceremony for Pat Quinn took every ounce of emotion out of everyone (and rightfully so, because Pat Quinn, you guys), but the Canucks pulled off the big W — Burrows scored the GWG, but our pal Shawn Matthias scored with just over 5 minutes left in the third to double the score, and guess what that meant.

Joining Chris, Clay and Matt for an action-packed episode 32 is Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province. Botch gives a low-down on the week that was, talks about what ails the Canucks power-play, and tells us how he thinks the Canucks will do over the next week. How well you ask?
