Schaefer, Canucks, on fireVANCOUVER (CP) -- Peter Schaefer and the Vancouver Canucks are on fire heading into tonight's home game against the Pheonix Coyotes.
Schaefer, who had four goals in 25 games last season, has six goals in his last five games as the Canucks, suddenly riding a wave of confidence, arrived home sporting a 3-2-1 record after a gruelling six-game road trip.
"Stay away from him," defenceman Adrian Aucoin, referring to Schaefer, told the Vancouver Sun. "You might burn your hand if you touch him. It's great when a guy's on fire like that."
Vancouver (6-3-2-1) occupy first place in the Pacific division.
