The Canucks lost again today so another 2 points on top of them would be nice. Sure it's just the 2nd game of the season, but you gotta have a long view on things. Some stuff I'll be watching for:

- Can Iginla et al get their act together? The first line was the worst of the bunch last game and that can't continue.

- Can the team cut back on shots against? Brent Sutter has gone on record saying the goal is to average 25 or less shots on goal this year. I believe 40 is still more than 25 so there's some work to be done there....

- Can the 4th line kick ass again? Prust and company were full value last game. If they can continue to perform well, maybe McGrattan won't find his way into the line-up?

That's it for me. Here's hoping it's good one...
