Everybody and their mother (outside of the faithful) says this team is done. Strangely enough, the games still have to be played. This 'Nucks team is already looking past the Kings to the President's Trophy, and it would be sweet to make them pay for that. I was there when they ruined Vancouver's home opener. May they mess things up again.
Terray Murray is sticking to his lines and his system. Dustin "PB Stomp" Brown has 4 goals and 6 points in the last three games; Lewis and Smyth have four points. Penner has been Murray-ized of late, but I hope he sticks his giant Winkler butt in Lou's face. Oh, and you defensemen? Now would be the time to hipcheck people into the next universe. Or just score some more goals.
96 points would let them pass Phoenix for 4th place, and clinch the season series.
