Did anyone have the Vancouver Canucks struggling to stay afloat this season? Goalie controversy apparently solved, the Canucks are riding Eddie Lack right now due to an injury to Roberto Luongo. How did the injury happen, you might ask?

Jeeze, Dustin Brown. Now you're taking out goalies? Brown beat Backes to stop one on the Canadian Olympic Team Challenge, though Backes would rather take Team Canada out the honorable (honourable?) way - fisticuffs!
The Canucks have lost six games in a row, though to be fair four of those were decided in overtime. Coach John Tortorella is fuming, and the Canucks sit in fourth in the Pacific and seventh in the conference.
This is your morning open thread. Chill here for a while while waiting on the preview, GDT, and possibly a recap by a very special guest. Head on over to Nucks Misconduct and say hi - they're just as much troublemakers as we are.
