Finally there can be an official welcome back Ryan Kesler celebration in Vancouver even though he returned to the lineup in Tuesday night's disappointing loss to the New York Rangers. And while the easy win over the Nashville Predators might also be filed under the 'Roxy effect' folder given the days the visitors spent in this berg, getting Kesler back in the middle of the second line makes this team purr the way they did in the first two periods Tuesday. In this one however, they finished enough chances to put it away after one period, Kesler's first goal of the season in the third nothing more than power play window dressing when the Preds started getting goofy.
Welcome back, Kes - we missed ya: Canucks
