Nucks Misconduct

712 words on Kevin Bieksa - Nucks Misconduct
Kevin Bieksa, transgressions aside—being a guy who, along with Ryan Kesler, is "too dirty" one night and "not tough enough" the next night—is a fantastic hockey player and one of the all-underrated players in the National Hockey League.

Cheers and Jeers - CanucksArmy
CHEERS to Henrik Sedin for his insane iron man streak. Tonight he will tie Brendan Morrison for consecutive games played in a Canucks uniform at 534. Right, but he's not tough enough. Oh, he's currently holding the second longest streak in the entire league, behind only Jay Bouwmeester

Alex Plante Recalled / More To It Than We Know? - Oilers Jambalaya
The Oilers are in need of some help tonight (injury?) and I guess they need it from Alex Plante. He's been recalled from the Oklahoma City Barons.

G35 Oilers at Canucks - Lowetide
The Oilers were walking on sunshine 10 games in, but they were also riding historic save percentages and a blueline that looked like it had enough to hold back the water most nights. Khabibulin and Potter and the kid were enormous advantages for Edmonton, but luck and injury and the law of averages saw a market correction.

GAME DAY: Edmonton @ Vancouver - Oil On Whyte
What I can tell you is that Ales Hemsky is going to be out (sinus infection) along with Ryan Whitney (ankle). Not a real surprise for both guys here; Hemsky was kept out of the Minnesota game prior to Christmas with “something contagious”, and Whitney hasn’t looked quite right all season.

Oilers at Canucks – Game 35 - Putting on the Foil
Some of you might remember Hordichuk’s promise to keep the Canucks honest. Unfortunately he never got to really live up to that promise when an attempted hit went bad and he injured himself. But with any luck he’ll play tonight and show us what he really wanted to do.
