Vancouver Canucks: Last year's choke job and this year's Todd Bertuzzi attack seem to be forgotten by the Vancouver Canucks as they have somehow climbed back atop the Northwest Division, based on a tiebreaker with the Avs, with two games remaining. "Nobody expected this, except the guys in this room," Canucks winger Matt Cooke told the Vancouver Province.
Tampa Bay Lightning: Just because the Lightning have lost an amazing NHL-low 35 man-games to injuries this season doesn't mean they aren't willing to stick their noses into trouble. Brad Lukowich's face is a prime example, taking a combined 61 stitches while missing just one game, because of the stomach flu, this season.
