Measuring Stick Game
Tonight the Canucks will see how they measure up to the Sens in their only match-up against Ottawa this season. Ottawa is not only the top team in the East but has the highest scoring line in the League. Spezza is ranked 2nd with 43 points and Alfredsson and Heatley are tied for 3rd with Staal and Thornton at 41 points. Tonight should be an interesting game since Ottawa is missing Martin Havlat from their lineup, who is out for most of the season with a dislocated right shoulder. Ottawa has won their last two games but can they keep it up when they play the Canucks who hold near perfect home standings of 12-1-0?
