Canucks vs. Canadiens Game Day Preview: Small Things and Big Packages

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 4 vs. Avalanche 1

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. Burrows, Hank, Dank. That felt right. That felt right. #canucks @vancanucks @canucksgame #TGATT — Jay Jones (@BARJONESING) March 29, 2013 That’s good news for Canucks fans.
