Gameday preview: Vancouver Canucks @ Dallas Stars (7:30p CDT)

Brandon is still stuck at SeaTac awaiting his flight home. In fact, he might be joining the boys from Nucks Misconduct for a drink before getting on the plane.

Anyway, if the Stars have one last charge for a playoff spot left in them, it's got to start tonight. And fortunately for them, Vancouver appears to be rather mortal when away from home as evidenced by Saturday's game against Phoenix.

BTW, thanks to Viralphrame for the YouTube link.

 

 

We need a little levity. Because in some quarters, apparently we have all the right in the world to curl up in the fetal position and suck our thumbs until next season because of all the problems our beloved Stars have experienced this season.

But that's not how I roll.

Not yet, anyway.

Key Injuries:

Dallas:  C Brian Sutherby (lower body) is day-to-day and C Brad Richards (hand), C Toby Petersen (foot), LW Brenden Morrow (knee) and D Sergei Zubov (hip) are out. Steve Begin (upper body) should return to the lineup after a two game absence

Vancouver: Jannik Hansen RW (broken pinky finger) and Rick Rypien (sports hernia) are out.
