The surprising Toronto Maple Leafs will travel to Vancouver to do battle with the Canucks on this week's edition of Hockey Night in Canada.

Maple Leafs/Canucks games are always special, but this contest has a bit of extra drama as long-time Vancouver Canuck, Pavel Bure, will finally be getting his jersey number retired by the team. Bure, who is already in the Hockey Hall of Fame, was one of the most prolific scorers in the history of the NHL, notching 60 goals a number of times over the course of his career.
