The Canucks haven’t started a season 3-0 since 1999. They haven’t not sold out Rogers Arena since 2002. Both streaks ended on Saturday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning, and Jocelyn Aspa recaps the game in your tweets.Click here to read more.
The Canucks are only two games into the 2014-15 NHL season, and newcomer Radim Vrbata’s presence has been huge already. Vrbata scored the game winner in a 4-2 tilt against the Calgary Flames on Oct. 8th and notched another goal and an assist three nights later against the Edmonton Oilers on home ice.Click here to read more.
Yup, the Canucks are still alive. Something happened during the second intermission. Trailing 1-0 to the Los Angeles Kings going into the final frame, it’s as if the Canucks decided that, hey, they should be playing up-tempo hockey. And the result was probably their best third period of hockey in a long, long time, and a 2-1 win. #Canucks with some serious play action in the 3rd. Torts?

And we were so optimistic after last night’s game, eh? But now, after the Canucks’ 3-2 OT loss to the Colorado Avalanche, and the Phoenix Coyotes’ win over the New Jersey Devils, those slim playoff hopes we’re all clinging to are getting even slimmer. The Coyotes need 9 points in their last 8 games, the Minnesota Wild need 8 points in their last 8 games, and the Canucks’ season will come to a merciful end. So long playoffs!

Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? The Canucks stroll into Florida, face Roberto Luongo and the Panthers, blow a late lead, and then win a shootout. Again, the kids – especially Nicklas Jensen and Eddie Lack – played well. All things considered, I guess we can’t ask for more than that. Thing 3 triumphs over Thing 1 with a goal from Jensen and big saves from the Stork. #welldonegrasshopper #TGATT #CanucksvsLuongo — doubleLuonGOLD (@luonGOLD) March 16, 2014Click here to read more.
Sure, the game had its moments. Like Ryan Kesler scoring – shorthanded – in his first game back from injury, in his first game since word got out that he had requested a trade out of Vancouver. Like Eddie Lack standing on his head again, allowing just one goal for the 6th time in his last 8 starts. Like Keith Ballard returning to Rogers Arena (playing in the game and not sitting in the press box). But let’s be reality here. Canucks vs. Wild games aren’t the most exciting games at the best of times, and last night’s was no...Click here to read more.
I supposed all good things eventually had to come to an end. Before last night’s game, the Canucks had won 11 consecutive games against the Toronto Maple Leafs, dating back to November 2003. So much for that. But you know what’s still going? The Canucks’ losing streak. This two-week Olympic break couldn’t come soon enough. Thank god for #Sochi2014 – I’m kinda looking forward to cheering for another team guilt-free. #Canucks #TGATT — Roxy (@RmystiQue78) February 8, 2014Click here to read more.
