I look at the good, the bad, and the interesting from the Canucks’ 2-1 overtime loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets from Thursday, March 7 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus. The Canucks tied the game in the early stages of the third period, only to have Matt Calvert channel his inner Sidney Crosby in overtime – going around both Henrik Sedin and Alex Edler on the winning goal. In the video, I touch on Cory Schneider, the defensive pairing of Jason Garrison and Dan Hamhuis, our lack of scoring, the poor effort on the game-winning goal, and the Canucks’ less-than-stellar...
The Canucks are back home against the San Jose Sharks, looking to bounce back after a loss to the Calgary Flames on Sunday. There’s lots of baby talk prior to this game – baby honey badgers, baby Hansens, and now, baby Burrows.
In goal, it’s the Battle of the Backups: Roberto Luongo for the Canucks and Danny Taylor with his first ever home start for the Flames.
In a grudge match of sorts, the Canucks host the Los Angeles Kings for the first time since the Kings eliminated them in the first round of last year’s playoffs. Opened a beer. Now THIS is a game. THIS I've missed. #playlikewinners #playlikechampions #TGATT @canucksgame — Arielle Tuliao (@ajtuliao) March 3, 2013 Hockey, check. Beer, check. Here we go.
Has everyone recovered from the Canucks’ 8-3 meltdown in Detroit on Sunday afternoon? How about from their Oscar hangovers?
It’s an early game in Detroit today. Luckily NASCAR finished on time, so there were no TV conflicts in my house. None of the duct taped cars won, so I was pretty disappointed.
Welcome to Dallas, Texas, where everything is bigger. None bigger than Brett Hull’s skate. Tonight, the Stars celebrate Marty Turco. Canucks fans have fond memories of him. Marty Turco. The man who shut out the #canucks three times in one playoff series and still lost. — Dan Murphy (@sportsnetmurph) February 22, 2013
I hope everyone got off work in time, because this game is not waiting for you. Seriously, they’re not waiting for anyone, not even Eddie Lack.
Having throughly erased the third period of Friday night’s game from our collective memory, we’re back for a Sunday night game against the Blues. I suppose I'll be hoping for a solid 60-minute effort from the #Canucks… about the only thing missing from Friday night. — Clayton Corley (@opiatedsherpa) February 18, 2013
The Canucks look for a win against Dallas after a pedantic win over Minnesota. And back after a spell with Chris Golden & Victoria Pattison behind the CHB TGATT desk tonight, you know Lizz will be bringing here A game. Just like Aaron Freaking Rome: Henrik better not overshadow Rome's return — Taj (@taj1944) February 16, 2013
