Back to back games starting on Sunday for the Vancouver Canucks in Florida and then to Tampa Bay on Monday. Sunday afternoon was a hard game for many of the Canucks fans to watch. It was the first time in eight years the Canucks had to face Roberto Luongo as an opponent. Strange times in Canuckland indeed. Vancouver won the game in a shootout with a goal from Nik Jensen 4-3 . The next night the Tampa... [Read more]
Game Blip: Yes, it was a feisty win over Winnipeg to keep the Canucks playoff hopes alive. Alex Burrows scored not once, but twice and had a handful of amazing chances throughout the night. The Canucks lose Kesler to what looks like a knee injury and Alex Edler is missing. Edler’s body was present but clearly his mind was not there. Eddie Lack had a spectacular third period keeping the Canucks... [Read more]
The Vancouver Canucks have hit ‘rock bottom’. I’m not exactly sure how they got there, but they are there. Losing to the Islanders 7-4 after they went into the third period with a 3-0 lead, was nothing short of abysmal. I’ve never seen a team unravel as quickly as they did. The big money blue line, who were great through forty minutes, were nowhere to be found in the third.... [Read more]
After all that has happened to Roberto Luongo the last few years, I didn’t think it could get any worse for the Canucks goalie. I thought there was no way the Canucks organization could disrespect the franchise’s best goalie of all-time again. Boy was I wrong. With the news coming out that Eddie Lack would be starting the Heritage Classic for the Canucks, it was just another slap in the face for... [Read more]
After an amazing Olympic run by the Canadian men’s and women’s national hockey teams, it’s great to be back watching some NHL hockey. It’s great to be back watching our Vancouver Canucks. Last night, the St. Louis Blues came to town and lost to the Canucks 1-0 in regulation. I wouldn’t consider it the most entertaining game, but it’s far from the most boring I’ve... [Read more]
I will not be at the game on Thursday night at Rogers Arena. The Vancouver Canucks will be facing off against the Nashville Predators. In fact, like I wrote in the previous blog, I will probably cross the Fraser River and watch the game in the suburbs. Since the existence of the franchise, I have never seen another team beat them while I am watching a game, in person, that involves the Preds. In short,... [Read more]
In a night where the Vancouver Canucks won’t have head coach, John Tortorella, behind the bench until the end of the Olympic break for game situations, they take on the Edmonton Oilers with their new netminder, Ben Scrivens, between the pipes. Mike Sullivan makes his Canucks debut as head coach during Torts’ 15 day, 6 game suspension. Tonight is a night the Vancouver Canucks need to... [Read more]
Well that was one way to relax a slumping Canucks lineup. In the 3rd game of Hockey Day in Canada, the Canucks and Flames went to the 5th round of a shootout before the Canucks prevailed. The game featured a line brawl off the opening face off. Kellan Lain Breaks 50 Year Old NHL Record 24 year old Kellan Lain was playing his first NHL game on Saturday night. Most of his family flew into Vancouver... [Read more]
