Hmmm… Where was this Alex Burrows earlier this season? With a couple more goals last night, Burr now has 5 goals in 3 games. That's my Burrows! #Canucks #TGATT — Walter Siu (@waterboy99troop) March 18, 2014 Silver lining, I suppose, amidst the Canucks’ pretty much closed playoff window.
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, 2014
Lose a bunch, win one, lose one, win one, lose two – the story of the Canucks’ 2013/2014 season. The Canucks did play well. Even their power play looked like a real power play with scoring chances and stuff you should expect to have when you have one more guy on the ice than the other team does. But we’re way past the point of relishing moral victories. And with last night’s 4-3 loss to the Washington Capitals – and the Dallas Stars getting a point against the Calgary Flames – they fall further back of the playoff picture. Watching...
It looked for 40 minutes, didn’t it? They had a 3-0 lead entering the third period. I mean, how the hell do they blow a 3-goal lead in the first 3 minutes of the third period? Come on Torts. Don't leave so fast. You have to stay out, hear the boos and feel shame. #Canucks #TGATT — Bruce Ng (@transcendwebs) March 11, 2014
The Canucks scored 2 goals in a game AND won? “@SuzieCanuck: Canucks Win, Canucks Win pic.twitter.com/cUqRbMFkuv”……good one!!!! Lol #TGATT — BC HAWK FAN (@BCHAWKFAN) March 9, 2014
This pretty much sums up last night’s 6-1 ass-kicking to the Dallas Stars. Is the nightmare over yet? #Canucks #TGATT — Elmee Garner (@giggling_elms) March 7, 2014
Rebuild? Reset? Retool? I feel like going thru a rebuild is a lot like becoming single again. At first it's all exciting and then you realize it sucks. A lot. — Matt Lee (@mattlee980) March 4, 2014 Buckle up, Canucks fans.
After eight memorable and exciting seasons with the Vancouver Canucks, goaltender Roberto Luongo was traded to the Florida Panthers on March 4, 2014. Thus, Marie Hui and I wanted to bid Bobby Lu a proper farewell. Inspired by Boyz II Men, we proudly present our version of their smash hit “End of the Road”. Make sure you get to bridge of the song at the 3:11 mark…you won’t be disappointed.
Losers of 9 of 10, the Canucks went across the street to BC Place, hoping to get back on the winning track against the Ottawa Senators in the 2014 Heritage Classic. It started off great. There was a lively atmosphere, and even an early 2-0 lead for the good guys, but as has been the refrain the last couple of months, the Canucks blew the lead and ended up on the wrong end of a 4-2 final score. huh, and we thought the Olympic break would help up #TGATT — Jordan Carpanzano (@jordancarp79) March 2, 2014
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...
