Numbers for Nerds:

Alex Edler is the Canucks' leading scorer from the blueline. He ranks 13th on the team in total points scored. That makes Vancouver the only team in the league who doesn't have a defenseman in their top 10 point producers. Does that mean they are really deep at forward or need more scoring from their D or both?

Also, signs from Eric Stephens point to James Wisniewski possibly making his Ducks 2.0 debut tonight.
