I hope you're prepared for this folks. There's a very real chance that the Vancouver Canucks are a legit Stanley Cup contender this year. Of the six Canadian teams, only Vancouver is going to have a real chance of going all the way in the foreseeable future. Montreal is good enough to make the dance this year, but they're a few fathoms away from being elite.

It was one of those nights where seemingly everything was going in, as the Calgary Flames pumped home seven goals on 19 shots to take a 7-4 win over the Dallas Stars. It was a rather sloppy hockey game with some good fortune (for once) shining on the Flames. They move on to Vancouver to take on a Canucks team they'll probably need to play a little better against to earn two points.

Henrik Karlsson goes tonight, and that's got me wondering.

When the Calgary Flames played the Dallas Stars on December 23rd, they put forth one of their best efforts of the season and were able to scrape out an impressive 3-2 shootout win. Along the way, Calgary outchanced and outplayed their opponents on the road, and thanks to a late Alex Tanguay equalizer, they were able to earn a well deserved two points. When the Flames and Stars play tonight (7 pm, Sportsnet West and The FAN 960), a duplicate performance may be just what the doctor ordered, especially after what we saw on Wednesday.
