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.
Can we at least beat the Leafs on Saturday night? No one can sauve us #Canucks #TGATT — Ashley Pothiboon (@ashleyspinellii) February 6, 2014Click here to read more.
The Canucks lost again. And they couldn’t score on the power play again. And they lost again. But at least the new guy scored – Raphael Diaz’s first goal of the season – and played a relatively uneventful and team-high 25:26 minutes. We just won the trade #tgatt — Jenna Fabulous (@jennafabulous) February 4, 2014 Silver linings?Click here to read more.
Man, these losses seem to be getting more depressing by the day. After taking a quick 2-0 lead on the Chicago Blackhawks, the Blackhawks scored 4 unanswered goals in a 7-minute span in the second period. The end result? Another loss – the Canucks’ 10th loss in January versus just 3 wins. But hey, at least Tom Sestito scored again. The Boxing hobo strikes again!!!

The Canucks got their offense from some unlikely combinations last night. Zac Dalpe, playing with the Sedins, opened the scoring early in the second period, and playing on a line with Darren Archibald and Dale Weise, Mike Santorelli scored the game-winning goal in the third period. The Blues pressed in the final minute of the game though. And oh man, did they press hard. But at the end of it, the Canucks held on and won 2-1, breaking a 5-game losing streak. Frantic moments at the end but…yeehaaw..#canucks hold on for the win! #TGATT — Helen Hughes (@HeHughes376) January 11,...Click here to read more.
Roberto Luongo came back from injury last night against the Los Angeles Kings. Unfortunately, he was the only one who showed up. He made 46 saves – many of them from in-close and as a result of odd-man rushes – but without much support up front, the Canucks dropped a 3-1 decision to the Kings, their third straight loss to their California rivals this season. The #Canucks deserve to lose this game, Luongo doesn't. #tgatt — G. Justine Galo (@Aviewfromabroad) January 5, 2014Click here to read more.
No Luongo? No problem. For the second time in his last 3 starts, Eddie Lack recorded a shutout as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Calgary Flames 2-0 in Calgary. For the season, he now has a 7-2-0 record, a 1.74 GAA (3rd in the NHL) and 0.933 save percentage (6th in the NHL). Another shutout for @eddielack!!! #lackdance #Canucks #TGATT — Elmee Garner (@giggling_elms) December 30, 2013 That sound you hear is another goaltender controversy slowly growing because, you know, that’s what we Canucks fans do.Click here to read more.
Fret not if you didn’t have your morning coffee before the Vancouver Canucks’ 10 AM game versus the Carolina Hurricanes yesterday because the first 5 minutes would’ve woken you up. Not only was there a bit of a brouhaha just a couple of minutes into the game, but the Canucks also scored the first goal in a game for just the 11th time this season. On the powerplay. The #canucks scored first? And on the power play yet? I must still be dreaming! #tgatt — Sporting Vancouver (@vansport) December 1, 2013 Things got dicey at the start of the second...Click here to read more.
It looked like a road trip away from Rogers Arena was just what the Vancouver Canucks needed. Against the Ottawa Senators last night, the Canucks, playing their first of 4 games on the road, won convincingly by a 5-2 score. But it wasn’t just the final score that was impressive. David Booth played perhaps his best game in two years, and had a goal and an assist. Jason Garrison scored his first goal in 25 games. Dale Weise and Mike Santorelli both scored greasy goals from in front of the net. And Roberto Luongo made 37 saves. The #nhl should've...Click here to read more.
