The Vancouver Canucks and St. Louis Blues will continue their regular NHL season in just a few hours. Both teams got their last few remaining players back from Sochi over the weekend and will be looking to start the playoff push off on the right foot. Vancouver in particular is in desperate need of a win.
It seems like a long time ago, but the last time we saw the Canucks they were dropping their seventh straight game to the Toronto Maple Leafs. This losing streak has seen Vancouver plummet down the competitive Pacific division standings, and the team is in desperate need of a win.
They’ll get Henrik Sedin back for this contest, which could be a boost. It seems likely that the players that did compete in the Winter Games will be a big jet lagged though. They won’t have any exscuses as they go up against a strong and determined Blues team.
The likes of David Backes and T.J. Oshie are probably fired up to return to action since their run in Sochi came to an abrupt and sudden end just a few days ago. How will things shake down between these two talented clubs? Tune in to find out. Here’s how:
