Johnny from Tokyo… err… Matt Lee is back and brings the heat to episode 30 of the C4 podcast! Rejoining Chris in studio and Clay by phone, the boys discuss the optimism in the Smylosphere and how one comment from “Johnny from Tokyo” has helped turn around Luca Sbisa’s career in Vancouver.
After last night’s 3-2 win over Edmonton, the Canucks are back at it, looking to do the same at home against the Nashville Predators. Lizz Moffat recaps the game in your tweets.
While the hit wasn’t late like Burrows, it’s clear that Ference leaves his feet, elevates his shoulders, and hits Kassian in the head. If Burrows got 3 games for his hit, you be the judge, should Ference be suspended?
Burrows’ hit on Emelin had all the trademarks of the kind of hit the NHL is trying to eliminate. Emelin was admiring his pass, which placed him in a vulnerable position, Burrows’ point of contact was high, and there were a couple of steamboats from the point that Emelin got rid of the puck to the point that Burrows hit him – the hit was high, the hit was late, and the hit was to a guy in a vulnerable position.
The Canucks faced off against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night — the only time the Habs will be playing in Rogers Arena this year — and… What. A. Game. Jocelyn Aspa recaps it all in your tweets.
And okay, sure, the Canucks lost two out of four games last week — they suffered an abysmal 6-3 loss in Dallas; won 4-1 in St. Louis; lost a disastrous 7-3 game against Colorado on Friday evening even though Henrik Sedin scored the game’s first goal ten seconds in; and, lastly, posted a 4-2 win against Washington on Sunday night — but I digress. Despite the topsy-turvy week, there’s been some bright spots, which finally brings us to the point of this post: Nick Bonino.
Heading into a quick three game road trip, the Canucks were near the top of the Pacific Division. The parade had been planned. With a loss to Tampa Bay fresh on their minds, one would think a game against the Dallas Stars would be hard-fought. Well… Clay rejoins Chris in episode 29 to discuss the Canucks cold, hot, then cold three game road trip. Having given up 14 goals over three games – or 12 in two for those who don’t wish to look at things half-full – the boys rip the defence apart and try to sort out how...
After allowing a touchdown against the Colorado Avalanche Friday night, the Vancouver Canucks returned from their road trip with hopes for better luck against the Washington Capitals.
The Canucks played their third game in four nights on Friday against the Avalanche in Denver, coming off a solid 4-1 win against the St. Louis Blues just the night before. They beat an NHL team not from Alberta – wooooo! Jocelyn Aspa recaps the game in your tweets.
