Apologies on the tardiness of the open thread. Presidents Day celebrations can get out of hand, yo.
Anywho, it's an 8:00 start time tonight as the Vancouver Canucks are nice enough to start the game early in their afternoon instead of at night. No 1:30 bedtime tonight, no sir! Hopefully the game will be a continuation of the return to Blues Hockey that we've been seeing as of late.
It'll be Jake Allen against Roberto Luongo tonight, so it's a battle of the back-ups, I guess. What a happy problem for the Canucks to have two starters. I wonder how that feels? Oh, wait -- we had that last season with the Blues. Maybe tonight'll be a flashback for Brian Elliott and we can get out of the basement of the league's save percentage.
Chat away -- later on there'll be a preview, some Road Music, the game day thread, and I'm hoping a Three Questions with the fine folks at Nucks Misconduct.
