Aren’t we supposed to play the Philadelphia Flyers tonight?

With Gary Bettman’s new intra-conference heavy schedule firmly entrenched, it appears that the old tradition of the Canucks playing the Philadelphia Flyers in Vancouver on New Year’s Eve has been put to rest.

Instead, the Canucks get served with a visit to the Library to play the Flames (again). After beating Calgary last Thursday, the ‘Nucks hold a 4-0 season series lead.

Tonight, however, presents advantageous circumstances for the Flames. The Canucks played last night at home and the Flames have been off since Saturday.

This does not necessarily translate into veritable ‘winning conditions,’ however. In fact, I fully expect the Canucks to continue owning the Flames, making the season series 5-0 with another win tonight.

    Looks like when you’re right 52% of the time, you’re wrong 48% of the time… though I think that might be a bit generous with the percentages
