Just an idea -- and a much better idea than the previous streak of middling-ineptitude we've all endured. Watching Canucks' hockey has been fun again this last week.Currently on a season-high 4-game win streak, the Vancouver Canucks look to make it 5 straight against the Dallas Stars tonight.
5 Random Game Notes:
(1) Roberto Luongo and Marty Turco have very similar numbers this season, Turco only slightly edging out the Canucks goalie in GAA and SV%. Turco has played 4 less games than Luongo, and faced only 826 shots as opposed to 1014 for the Canucks netminder.(2) Neither the Stars nor the Canucks have been scored against in overtime this season.(3) The Stars have scored 5 goals in a game, at 5 different times this season, but never more than that. (So if the Stars/Canucks are tied 5-5 at some point tonight, we're winning this sucker.)(4) The season series of 4 games between the teams is currently tied at one win apiece. Both were low-scoring, 2-1 affairs.(5) Dallas coach Dave Tippett's personal hobby is to build motorcycles from scratch.**Okay, that last bit of info wasn't actually dug out of the official game notes. I read it last season and found it interesting enough to remember for some reason. You can never get enough random trivia, I figure.Note: there's a lot of number 'fives' in this post. odd.
