The Canucks Hit The Road

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

The next 20,743 kilometres (12,899 miles) will make or break the season in Vancouver.

Toronto. Montreal. Ottawa. Boston …

You never know what the turning point is until your season is over. Then, only when you look back, can you identify it as something that took the team north or south. Once hindsight kicks in.

But as the Vancouver Canucks step out for what is, technically, the longest road trip in National Hockey League history, it couldn’t possibly be in a better position to turn this Olympian road trip into a positive. With six straight wins the Canucks aren’t just leaving Vancouver today for Toronto on charter aircraft. It’s like they are being shot out of a cannon.

Tampa Bay. Florida. Columbus. Minnesota…

The only scary thing for Canucks fans however, is this:

Can it get any better for a team that has gone 17-4-2 since Dec. 10?
