You want to know what happened in the Canucks game and you want to know now. We get it. Here’s the bare bones recap of Vancouver’s 3-2 win over Calgary.

Flames -- Calgary made one big change behind the bench, bringing in coach Brent Sutter fresh from a two-year stretch in New Jersey, and another at the blue line by landing Jay Bouwmeester from Florida. Both moves reflect an effort to shore up a defense that finished 23rd in the League last season. The basics are still in place, working outward from Kiprusoff in net and Dion Phaneuf on defense to Jarome Iginla and Olli Jokinen leading the attack, but their approach will be a bit different under Sutter, playing a more meticulous, defensive-oriented game.
