Talking Hockeyville with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins 0

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.

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 Like this:Like Loading…

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 1 at Ducks 9

As far as spectacular losses go – and as we all know, the Canucks have had more than their fair share of spectacular losses – surely last night’s 9-1 ass-kicking by the Anaheim Ducks must rank among their most spectacular. Have they stopped the bleeding yet? #Canucks #tgatt — Matt Man (@mattthemascot) January 16, 2014 Like this:Like Loading…

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,...

So much for starting off 2014 on the right foot. I set out to make a hungover themed #TGATT, and the game pretty much played along. — Lizz Moffat (@lizzmoffat) January 2, 2014 D’oh! Like this:Like Loading…

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 3 at Flyers 4 (SO)

On one end of the rink was Steve Mason, whose career the entire NHL, save the Philadelphia Flyers, had left for dead. Much was made about his past poor performances, especially against the Canucks, seemingly forgetting that he’s actually been pretty damn good during the Flyers’ 15-6-4 surge prior to last night’s game. On the other end was Tom Sestito, who was waived by those very same Flyers last season and then claimed by the Canucks, and has served as some sort of a whipping boy to Canucks fans ever since. Both Mason and Sestito had lots to prove. And...

Can we just look ahead to tonight’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks and forget the Canucks’ 4-1 loss to the Dallas Stars last night didn’t happen? Good grief, this is painful to watch. #canucks #TGATT — Helen Hughes (@HeHughes376) December 20, 2013 Like this:Like Loading…
