Even though I’m a few days late for this one it’s certainly noteworthy to mention that for the third time in four years, we’ll be raising a banner to the rafters of GM Place come fall. The Vancouver Canucks have once again clinched a playoff spot and secured the title of Northwest Division champions.
The last regular season game is Saturday April 10th and then we head into the playoffs, facing a currently undecided opponent.
As Nucks Misconduct put it “this has been a patchwork team all season long,” but despite the ups and downs this season, we have still had much to cheer about. In particular, the triumph of Henrik Sedin, now the highest scoring centre in Canucks history.
While Canuck fever has yet to take over the city, towel power will be back in full force in just over a week.
The Canucks take on the Avalanche tonight followed by the Sharks, then the Flames for their last regular season game. Playoff tickets will go on sale tomorrow at 10:00am (by phone and internet only).
