Vancouver has struggled at times this year but has won three straight contests to put themselves back in the mix early. Mikael Samuelsson leads the team in shots (surprised? me neither) but also has five goals to show for it. The team has been shaken a little bit from the injury to Daniel Sedin but has recovered and put together a solid top line as well as talented second and third lines. Put Roberto Luongo net and you have a chance to win any game.
Players to watch on offense: Henrik Sedin, Mikael Samuelsson (former Wing), and Alexandre Burrows (essentially, the first line)
Players to watch on defense: Kevin Bieksa, Willie Mitchell
