The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 2 vs. Oilers 4

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 2 vs. Oilers 4

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.

Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Oilers: Keeping the Momentum Going

(canucks.nhl.com) Vancouver Canucks (27-17-9) Edmonton Oilers (16-32-6) For the fourth time this season, and the second time in just six days, the Vancouver Canucks take on the Edmonton Oilers. The Canucks won all three previous games (6-2, 4-0 and most recently, 2-1). After Sunday’s 5-4 overtime win for the Canucks, they’re looking to keep the momentum going and start a new winning steak. However, the Oilers are looking to start a new winning streak of their own. On Sunday, the Oilers ended a six-game winless streak as they beat the Nashville Predators 5-1. Who’s Hot As we all know, the...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 5 vs. Coyotes 4 (OT)

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

Game Day Preview Coyotes vs. Canucks: Seeking Hanzal

Game Day Preview Coyotes vs. Canucks: Seeking Hanzal

For the second time in just 10 days, the Canucks take on the Phoenix Coyotes. You may or may not remember their most recent meeting on January 16th. On the one hand hand, it was memorable for the sole reason that Martin Hanzal was a one-man wrecking crew for the Coyotes in the third period, taking out with Henrik Sedin, Mike Santorelli and David Booth with crosschecks. But then again, the game was boring as heck so we’ll forgive you if you stopped watching before Hanzal went all Donatello on the Canucks. None of the three injured Canucks finished the...

Talking Hockeyville with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

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.

Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Predators – Offensive Blue Lines

(source: nhl.com) Vancouver Canucks (26-16-9) Nashville Predators (22-22-7) Only 5 NHL teams have scored less goals than the Nashville Predators so far this season. So of course they shored up their defense; yesterday, the Preds traded defenseman Kevin Kline to the New York Rangers for defenseman Michael del Zotto. del Zotto is regarded as an offensive defenseman. He posted 9 goals and 37 points in his rookie season and set career-highs of 10 goals and 41 points a couple of years later. However, his production has slipped since and he has just 2 goals and 11 points in 42 games...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 2 at Oilers 1

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 2 at Oilers 1

Sans Torts and sans Hank, the Canucks went into Edmonton last night and took on the Edmonton Oilers. Despite not having their coach or their captain, the Canucks did okay. For starters, Kellan Lain played more than 2 seconds, and in fact, on his second shift if the game, scored his first career NHL goal. Roberto Luongo stopped 28 of 29 shots, and Zack Kassian scored the game-winner (and drove the Oilers players nuts all game). On the other hand, the Oilers offered little resistance, which, I suppose after a week like last week is a welcome change. Garrett:”the oilers...

CHB Countdown: Top 5 Canucks Brawls

CHB Countdown: Top 5 Canucks Brawls

Photo credit: canada.com Love em’ or hate em’ no one can deny the pure entertainment value of a good old-fashioned dust-up. Young and old, alike, left their seats on Saturday to take in a few minutes of rock em’- sock em’ hockey as the Canucks and Flames unexpectedly erupted into a brawl seconds after the opening faceoff. Was it neccesary? Probably not. Did it make the league and the teams look bad? Probably. But we all know this league isn’t a morality convention – it’s a business. And until something can usurp the popularity of fighting, we’re sure to see...

(source: nhl.com) Vancouver Canucks (25-16-9) Edmonton Oilers (15-30-6) This is the third of five games between the Vancouver Canucks and Edmonton Oilers, the Canucks won the first two games (4-0 and 6-2). Roberto Luongo has stopped 40 of Edmonton’s 42 shots. After snapping a 3-game losing streak on Saturday night with a rambunctious 3-2 shootout win over the Calgary Flames, the Canucks look to stay on the winning track tonight against the Edmonton Oilers. They’ll try to do this without coach John Tortorella, who was suspended by the NHL for 15 days after trying to get to Flames coach, Bob...
