The Canucks were proudly sporting the vintage Canucks jersey's at practice, which will make their season debut in tonight's match-up against the Boston Bruins at General Motors Place. Game time is 7:00 pm on Sportsnet Pacific.
Tonight should make for an interesting game as the Canucks only play Boston this one time, and the Bruins just recently underwent a trade. In exchange for centerman, Joe Thornton the Bruins acquired Brad Stuart, Marco Sturm, and Wayne Primeau from the San Jose Sharks.
The Canucks are counting on a win tonight since they are currently 2nd in the Northwest division, trailing just behind Calgary with 34 points. Sergei Samsonov is the Bruins leading scorer with 25 points, and Markus Naslund is leading the Canucks with 32.
