PREVIEW: The Rangers begin their Western Canada road trip against the Western Conference champion Vancouver Canucks. This team can score, play defense, and has solid goaltending. For the Rangers to win, they need to stay out of the box. They have had good success playing at even strength, but they rarely play at that level anymore because they are too busy with the penalty parade. Avoiding penalties allows them to build momentum and sustain momentum, which they will need to get their first win of the season.

CRAZY THOUGHT: Woywitka gets a Gordie Howe hat trick.
