The Canucks were nowhere to be found tonight as the Flyers came out flying with the win. Despite the team's lacklustre performance, the Canucks had an exceptional guest in the house, and the fans responded, at least better than the team did.

The team's former captain, Markus Naslund, was in attendance and when the Canucks' acknowledged his presence, he was given a standing ovation, as noted by the journalist who was at the Rogers Arena for the occasion:


The longtime Vancouver Canuck totalled 395 goals and 474 assists over his 15-year career. Naslund won a Ted Linsay Award in 2003 after setting a career-high 48 goals and 104 points. The 5x All-Star retired from the NHL in 2009.

Through the 15 seasons he spent in the NHL, Naslund spent 12 seasons with the team, captaining the Canucks on 7 of them.
