1.Last night the Canucks won; tonight they'll win again. It's Roberto Luongo's chance to become the winningest goalie in Vancouver Canucks history as he looks for that 39th win. Seems like a challenge he's more than prepared to answer.
And after scoring his 6th goal in 4 games, Jeff ("C-Cup", "Brabarian", etc.) Cowan is almost certain to be skating through a sea of lingerie next time he hits the ice at GM Place. Says the Associated Press, "Even when he misses on a shot, he scores." In other words, when you're hot, you're hot.
Cowan has never scored more than 9 goals 11 goals in an entire NHL season.
(note: thanks to Trevor for pointing out my error in the comments)2. Last night on the Canucks pay-per-view broadcast we got a run-down of the Canucks annual charity even, Dice & Ice. A ho-hum little feature I was barely paying attention to, until I saw this little scene go down: A stage performance featuring the musical stylings of The Boys Blues Brothers.
En francais, give a warm welcome to Dany Sabourin, Marc Chouinard, and Alex Burrows, as they sing their hearts out for you...
