Preview: Canucks vs Bruins

Vancouver (4-4-0) vs Boston (4-2-3)

The Canucks host the Boston Bruins at GM Place tonight in a game nationally televised on TSN. The Bruins are playing their second game on the road in 24 hours, after beating the Edmonton Oilers last night, 1-0 in Overtime, whereas the Canucks have been idle since beating the Oilers at home on Saturday night.

In other words, this is a game that pundits and prognosticators alike would say a team in the Canucks’ position should, for all intents and purposes, win.

That and the fact the Canucks are 2-0 at home should stand them in good stead heading into the game tonight, at least in theory.

What we certainly can expect tonight is the way the Bruins will play. Put simply, lull-you-to-sleep-and-catch-you-napping hockey (or, as hockey analysts prefer to call it, the ‘trap’). For instance, precisely the type of game they executed to perfection last night against Edmonton.

Hopefully I don’t end up asleep half-way through the second period, beer in hand.
