Let's get caught up on stuff that you might have missed:
  • Radulov's agent he confirms he'll join the Nashville Predators after having his KHL contract resolved via Dmitry Chesnokov of Puck Daddy. No details on how he got out of the contract but you gotta hand it to him to be able to get out of contracts from both the NHL and KHL
  • Zach Bogosian avoids a suspension on his leaping hit on Andreas Nodl (Puck Daddy)
  • Three games back into his return and Bruce Arthur is asking if Crosby is getting special treatment since he hasn't been crunched yet
  • It was funny when they chanted 'Croby's better' during the game against the Caps but the Jets fans chanted 'Jordan's better' against the Hurricanes last night and now it's just un-original. And the Hurricanes won which is kinda ending their playoff dreams (ProHockeyTalk)
  • THE WALKING DEAD!!!! What an episode and what a sneak peak of Season 3 with the prison and the first appearance of Michonne (ninja girl)

Canuck related things for tonight's game:

  • Malhotra will be back in lineup after taking some games off for personal reasons and Gordon McIntyre manages to call Malhotra a shadow of his pre-injury self. At this point haven't we all accepted that and just accepted that this is the now-Malhotra self?
  • Based on Luongo's history in Minnesota, I think we are all assuming that Cory Schneider is getting his 2nd start in a row *Update* Sportsnet's Dan Murphy has confirmed via twitter that Schneider will start
  • Tinfoil Toque hates when the media focuses on useless stats like +/- and blocked shots and idiots on twitter who chirp our own team's NHL and AHL players. If you missed it this weekend, someone chirped Kevin Connauton about how an athlete shouldn't ever eat McDonalds (Canucks Army)
  • Nucks Misconduct's game preview for tonight
  • Sami Salo and Mason Raymond are healthy scratches for the Canucks, with Malhotra and Gragnani in. Ramond falls from the top line to the press box...and it's about time he did
  • Bieksa will be back with Hamhuis as a D pairing
