The Vancouver Canucks have won six consecutive games, though they haven't been things of beauty.
"Right now it's not as pretty as a lot of people would like it to be," Vancouver right winger Jannik Hansen said before the team flew to Edmonton, describing the tight-checking, low-risk defensive posture the Canucks have taken. "[But on the road], there's not 15,000 people yelling at you to start carrying play. They want to see back-door tap-ins here, where on the road, you can get back to basics. You can chip pucks out whenever you want and no one is going to get on you."
