Hmmm… Where was this Alex Burrows earlier this season? With a couple more goals last night, Burr now has 5 goals in 3 games. That's my Burrows! #Canucks #TGATT — Walter Siu (@waterboy99troop) March 18, 2014 Silver lining, I suppose, amidst the Canucks’ pretty much closed playoff window.

Lose a bunch, win one, lose one, win one, lose two – the story of the Canucks’ 2013/2014 season. The Canucks did play well. Even their power play looked like a real power play with scoring chances and stuff you should expect to have when you have one more guy on the ice than the other team does. But we’re way past the point of relishing moral victories. And with last night’s 4-3 loss to the Washington Capitals – and the Dallas Stars getting a point against the Calgary Flames – they fall further back of the playoff picture.

It looked for 40 minutes, didn’t it? They had a 3-0 lead entering the third period. I mean, how the hell do they blow a 3-goal lead in the first 3 minutes of the third period? Come on Torts. Don't leave so fast. You have to stay out, hear the boos and feel shame. #Canucks #TGATT — Bruce Ng (@transcendwebs) March 11, 2014 Like this:Like Loading…Click here to read more.

Losers of 9 of 10, the Canucks went across the street to BC Place, hoping to get back on the winning track against the Ottawa Senators in the 2014 Heritage Classic. It started off great. There was a lively atmosphere, and even an early 2-0 lead for the good guys, but as has been the refrain the last couple of months, the Canucks blew the lead and ended up on the wrong end of a 4-2 final score. huh, and we thought the Olympic break would help up #TGATT — Jordan Carpanzano (@jordancarp79) March 2, 2014 Like this:Like Loading…Click here to read more.
Just when you didn’t think the Canucks could play any worse, they put together a listless effort like last night’s against the Detroit Red Wings. After some woeful losses over the last month, they should’ve been buoyed by coach John Tortorella’s return from his 15-day suspension or by captain Hank Sedin’s return from injury. Instead, they put up little fight, getting shut out 2-0 by the Wings, the third time they’ve been shut out in their last 11 games.

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 Like this:Like Loading…Click here to read more.
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 Like this:Like Loading…Click here to read more.
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...Click here to read more.
