    Surging Canucks not packing them in

     VANCOUVER (CP) -- Despite their perch atop the NHL's Northwest Division, the Canucks aren't lighting up the box office the way they are lighting up opposition goalies.
     
     On Saturday, the Canucks beat Nashville 4-1 before an announced crowd of 11,793, the smallest hockey gathering in the five-year history of GM Place.
     
     It marked the fourth time in seven dates this season that a new low has been established. A sellout is 18,422.
     
     "I'm not disappointed to date because there's been so much turmoil in the organization and we've missed the playoffs three years in a row," Canuck president and GM Brian Burke told the Vancouver Sun. "I don't think one month of solid play will fill the building but I certainly hope if we continue to play like this that we'll get a response.
     
     "But I don't think the Vancouver Canucks can chastise the fans for not coming when we've given them so many reasons not to come over the past few years."
