[About the game from two viewpoints. Chris and Caylie watch the game and exchange their thoughts via email.] From: Christopher Golden To: Caylie King Date: Mon, 13 Jun 2011 17:00 Hey Caylie, For what could be a defining moment in my favourite NHL team’s history, I’ve been surprisingly calm throughout the day. Not confident (after games 3 & 4 I’m still apprehensive of the TD Gardens) but at peace. Mind you, the puck has yet to drop. C. From: Caylie King To: Christopher Golden Date: Mon, 13 Jun 2011 17:17 Hi Chris, I was calm until about 3 PM when...

And there are Canada flags all over Rogers Arena. Damn straight. C. From: Caylie King To: Christopher Golden Date: Fri, 10 Jun 2011 17:44 Hi Chris, What a furious pace to start the game. It seems like the Canucks found their legs on the way back from Boston. I like that we are playing aggressively, DURING PLAY, however we have taken 3...

[About the game from two viewpoints. Chris and Caylie watch the game and exchange their thoughts via email.] From: Caylie King To: Christopher Golden Date: Wed, 09 Jun 2011 14:48 Hi Chris, There has been so much chatter on social media these last few days about Rome’s suspension, Vancouver fans vs Boston fans, and the word “classless” has been used one too many times. Bottom line it’s all about hockey and the players on the ice. I think this will be a pivotal game in the series, I don’t quite think it’s a MUST win, but to silence the critics...

He Said, She Said: The Rome, The Bad, The Ugly

From: Caylie King To: Christopher Golden Date: Mon, 06 Jun 2011 17:25 Hi Chris, The game started off furiously, which lead to Horton getting knocked out. Clean hit or dirty play? Caylie From: Christopher Golden To: Caylie King Date: Mon, 06 Jun 2011 17:28 Hey Caylie, I might be in the minority, but I see that as a dirty hit as Rule 48 reads. I do think Horton was admiring his pass, but Rome stands up and point of contact is the player’s head. And no way I wanted to see a player wheeled off the ice. C. From: Caylie...

Canucks Playoff Prize Pack Giveaway

Canucks Playoff Prize Pack Giveaway

Not often do we continue to bring you our thoughts on the Canucks post-season efforts this late in the year. Normally many of us are simply sitting on the patio, sipping an ice-cold beverage, and talking about what could have been. But this is not just any regular year. Instead, we’re packing into Rogers Arena to watch Home and Away games. Or heading to the patio at noon to save our seat for the 5 o’clock start of this epic Stanley Cup run from our boys in blue. And after, we’re all pouring on to Granville to soak up the...

[About the game from two viewpoints.

Apparently a must win. I’m not exactly sure why winning the first game at home in the final makes Game 2 a must win, but apparently that’s what people allegedly wiser than I seem to think. C. From: Caylie King To: Christopher Golden Date: Wed, 01 Jun 2011 17:21 Hi Chris, I’m not sure if it is...

Here we are. Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final. And it’s IN Vancouver. C. From: Caylie King To: Christopher Golden Date: Wed, 01 Jun 2011 17:43 Hi Chris, This is truly what we have all been waiting for. Special teams will win this series. With an efficiency of about 8% on the PP, the Bruins will have to deal with our great PK and dangerous powerplay....

Sedins Win The Victoriastipendiet

Sedins Win The Victoriastipendiet

Here at Canucks Hockey Blog, we have just learned that Henrik and Daniel Sedin will be awarded the 2011 Victoriastipendiet. Equivalent to the Swedish Athlete of the Year award, the Victoriastipendiet (or as we have roughly translated, the Crown Princess Victoria Scholarship) will be awarded to the Sedins on Öland, July 14, 2011 as part of the celebration of HRH Crown Princess Victoria’s 34th birthday. More notably, this is only the 3rd time in the scholarship has been awarded to a hockey player – the first two being 1980 to Stefan Persson and 1994 to Peter Forsberg. Congratulations to Hank...

Featured Playoff Beard: Rock the Casbah

Featured Playoff Beard: Rock the Casbah

As many of you know, not only am I a pretty die-hard Canucks fan, I’m one of many who have grown a playoff beard to support the team. And as both J.J. and I have mentioned previously, I’m also participating in the NHLPA Beard-a-thon, to raise money in support of the Heart & Stroke Foundation in order to put as many defibrillators as possible in arenas across Canada. I appreciate your support with a pledge, and also, I wanted to draw your attention that I’ll be the featured “playoff beard” of the day today, Friday (May 27th), and was hoping...

What should expect tonight? C. PS: Saw 4 guys in teal and orange body suits walking along W. Cordova. Guess you know you’ve made it big when imitators follow your lead and travel to the enemy’s turf, eh?
