The Predators did not turn into prey as hoped when the Canucks rolled into town for their last game of the 3 game road trip when Vancouver fell 3-1 in regular time. Five of the top six defence men are out with injuries, leaving Salo and Ehrhoff to run the blue line with Manitoba Moose call-ups. The rookies played well, they were consistent, and didn't try anything fancy or give up chances. The Canucks seemed to have some difficulty keeping the puck in the offensive zone, and had a hard time capitalizing on opportunities. The Canucks did, however lead the shots 36 - 26. The Vancouver Canucks will return home and play the Dallas Stars at Rogers Arena on Saturday.
