Colorado Avalanche at Vancouver Canucks

First of all, take note, for TV purposes apparently, the Vancouver Canucks home game Wednesday night against the Colorado Avalanche is a 6 pm start locally.

The Canucks morning skate didn’t exist. The Avalanche jumped on the ice at 10:30 am and soon after I caught up with Abbotsford native, Avalanche defenceman, Devon Toews, and his head coach Jared Bednar in preparation for tonight’s match.

We quickly covered the BC flooding in Toews’s hometown, the revenge factor for the Canucks tonight, and why he didn’t grow up a Vancouver fan.

Coach Bednar adds thoughts about struggling power plays. Both the Canucks and Avalanche are operating with a success rate at just above 15% for the season. Colorado will be without Nathan MacKinnon, JT Compher, and Cranbrook native Bowen Byram.

The Avalanche are 6-5-and-2 on the young season, coming off two consecutive wins, while the Canucks are 5-9-and-2 this season, one of their losses coming at the hands of the Avalanche 7-1 in Denver last Thursday.
