Back to the Canucks. They lost to the Los Angeles Kings last night. 4-1 was the final. It was the 3rd game of a 3 game road trip. The game started of in Vancouver's favour, with Kevin Bieksa scoring early in the 1st period. Vancouver has a pretty strong stat of winning when scoring the 1st goal. LA came back to tie the game when Brad Richardson scored to end the 1st with a 1-1 tie. It was an interesting game to watch. Both teams were good but honestly not great. By the end of the 2nd Matt Greene and Anze Kopitar made it a 3-1 lead for Los Angeles. Another for LA 1/2 way through the 3rd and that was that. The KIngs take home another win. The Kings are undefeated with Darryl Sutter as head coach. They are 4-0-2. Meaning they have won 4 games in regulation, lost none and picked up a point in either a shootout or overtime. Watch the Canucks play the Sharks for the 2nd time in a week Monday January 2nd, here in Vancouver at Rogers Arena. Go Canucks Go!

Team Canada is dominating at the World Juniors. They took home another win yesterday against Team USA. The final was 3-2. Canada scored all of their goals in the 1st period and the USA made a last rush to score 2 in the final period. Mark Stone lit it up again with a goal on a power play in the 1st, he also set up the 2nd goal. Scott Wedgewood was in net. Again rotating goaltenders in this tournament for team Canada goalies. A team with 2 outstanding goalies in is never a problem. Who needs a back up when you can have 2 starters?! Mark Stone is the top scorer in the World Juniors with 7 goals so far, keep an eye on this kid. He is cute to boot. Wedgewood has only let in 2 goals the entire tournament. Team Canada remains undefeated in this tournament and will be heading to the semi finals tuesday and the USA was knocked out of the semi finals friday. GO CANADA GO! GO CANADA GO! I love love love this team Canada! Red and White, Red and White!
