07:41 AM ET 12.05 | There was a time it was assumed David Booth and John Tortorella, when they met behind closed doors nearly two weeks ago, were at odds. [Booth] successfully lobbied the coach to allow highly-respected local power-skating coach Barb Aidelbaum to work with Booth and the club's strength and conditioning coach Roger Takahashi. ... The results have been quick and quite remarkable. Booth scored in successive games on the trip, but his bold move out of the corner and powerful cut to the net to bury a backhander on Nov. 30 at Madison Square Garden was an eye-opener. He looked more like that 30-goal scorer with the Florida Panthers in 2008-09 than someone who has struggled to score three times in 18 games this season and has been in the Tortorella doghouse.

Everyone in Vancouver is hoping lightning will strike twice by putting Booth and Santorelli back together. These two were a force on the same in Florida but that was 3-4 years ago. So far Booth's injuries have been the story, not the magic.
