The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 3 at Jets 4 0

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 3 at Jets 4

4-9-2. After losing 4-3 to the Winnipeg Jets last night, allowing Devin Setoguchi to score the game-winning goal with 3 minutes left in the third period, that’s the Canucks’ record in January. 4 wins. 11 losses. And like cherry on top of the whipped cream on top of the fudge on this January crap cake, they also lost Henrik Sedin, Mike Santorelli, Kevin Bieksa and Chris Tanev to long-term injuries. Wake me up when January ends. #Canucks #tgatt — Derek Bolen (@hurrrdurrr) January 31, 2014

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 2 vs. Oilers 4

After being out since October, Jordan Schroeder returned to the Canucks’ lineup last night and promptly made an impact. He scored his first 2 goals of the season – the Canucks’ only 2 goals of the night. So… Tum Tum (Schroeder) was the missing link? #Canucks #TGATT — Chris Golden (@lyteforce) January 27, 2014 It’s too bad David Perron scored 3 goals himself, and the Canucks went on to drop a 4-2 decision to the Edmonton Oilers.

The Canucks scored 5 goals last night. 8 if you count the ones they scored in their own net. But hey, at least the Canucks won, and in doing so, they extended their lead on the Phoenix Coyotes for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference to 5 points. We scored AND we won! Damn, I could get used to this. #Canucks #TGATT — Roxy (@RmystiQue78) January 26, 2014

Talking Hockeyville with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

CBC is upping the ante with Kraft Hockeyville this year, by bringing in five NHL stars to help promote the annual event that helps Canadians brush up on their geography. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Scott Hartnell, Nathan MacKinnon, David Clarkson, and Daniel Briere will each be representing a region of Canada, and helping to bring Hockeyville to one lucky community. While most of the world prefers their football (both kinds) or even cricket, Canada is one of the few to pledge allegiance to the ice. Unfortunately, hockey is also expensive. Besides the equipment and the litany of ever breaking sticks and outgrown...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 1 vs. Predators 2

8 goals in 7 games. After losing 2-1 at home to the Nashville Predators last night, the Canucks have now scored just 8 goals in 7 games, and have lost 9 of their last 12 games. Our offense is desperately sputtering away like an old jalopy on its last ounce of gas. *poot, poot, poooofftt* #Canucks #TGATT — Roxy (@RmystiQue78) January 23, 2014 Poooofftt is right.

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 0 at Coyotes 1

After going 0-fer on this Pacific Division road trip, scoring a grand total of 1 goal in 3 games, and then potentially losing Henrik Sedin, David Booth and Mike Santorelli to injuries, I bet the Canucks can’t wait to get back home. Such horrible. Very pain. So #Canucks. #doge #TGATT — Bruce Ng (@transcendwebs) January 17, 2014

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 4 vs. Penguins 5 (SO)

Don’t get me wrong. I think it’s admirable that the Canucks fought back from a 2-goal deficit against the high-powered Pittsburgh Penguins. It’s likewise impressive that they scored 4 consecutive goals, the last 2 within a 17-second span in the third period to take a 2-goal lead of their own. What sucks is that they blew a lead late – again. They allowed the Pens to tie the game late – 2 goals in 16 seconds with a minute left in the third period to be precise – and proceeded to lose 5-4 in the shootout. The Canucks have now...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 3 at Ducks 4 (OT)

Things were looking up for the Vancouver Canucks in SoCal. They scored 2 early goals, and on the powerplay, no less. They were up 3-2 late in the third period. Eddie Lack was solid too, thwarting the Anaheim Ducks as the Ducks dominated the Canucks in the last 45 minutes of the game. But then Kevin Bieksa took over. He did give the Canucks that 3-2 lead just a minute into the third period, but he was also on the ice for all 3 Ducks goals, and was directly at fault for the first one and maybe even the late,...
