Canucks prepare for toughness test against Avalanche

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- You could call this week a toughness test for the Vancouver Canucks.

Two of the main examinees Tuesday night will be Vancouver defenseman Erik Gudbranson and winger Darren Archibald as the Canucks (23-60-6) host the Colorado Avalanche (31-23-4).

With the NHL trade deadline approaching, Canucks general manager Jim Benning has made it known publicly that he is looking for more team toughness.
