From the hotel bar he was at with various Canucks teammates 'I'm not even that aggressive when trying to get a call out of a ref," he said with an air of exasperation to his voice. It almost sounded like he was sickened yet discretely envious. Burrows was no different, "It bites...

The Vancouver Canucks face one of the stingiest teams in the NHL tonight. The Canucks are flying high and well rested, after a 6-2 beat down of their archrivals the Chicago Blackhawks and three days off.
