Answer to bonus question: When the Canucks lost in Dallas on November 6, 2002, they fell to 5-5-4 on the season. Little did they know it would be their only loss in November of that season. Three nights later they defeated the Phoenix Coyotes 5-2 and returned home.

Led by the line of Markus Naslund, Brendan Morrison and Todd Bertuzzi and backstopped by the stellar netminding of Dan Cloutier, the Canucks went five-for-five at home. They headed out on a six game road trip and continued to win. On November 27, the Canucks defeated the Carolina Hurricanes and set a new team record with their eighth consecutive win. They went into Florida and beat both the Lightning and the Panthers to extend the streak to ten games.

Finally on December 3, the Canucks went into a game against the Islanders. With less than two minutes to go, New York scored to make it 2-1. They hung on for the win and snapped the Canuck streak.
