Can we just look ahead to tonight’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks and forget the Canucks’ 4-1 loss to the Dallas Stars last night didn’t happen? Good grief, this is painful to watch. #canucks #TGATT — Helen Hughes (@HeHughes376) December 20, 2013Click here to read more.
As far as rivalry matches go, you couldn’t ask for much more. Roberto Luongo was great. Tuukka Rask wasn’t. Ryan Kesler, Chris Higgins and Mike Santorelli were in beast mode. Milan Lucic wasn’t. The Sedins didn’t back down. Brad Marchand was being a dick. As usual. David Booth scored on a helluva snipe of a shot. Chris Tanev scored. Shorthanded, no less. But most importantly, in the Boston Bruins’ first visit to Rogers Arena since Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, the Canucks won. And won in convincing fashion. I'm just going to close my eyes & pretend...Click here to read more.
With his preseason high-stick on Sam Gagner still fresh in mind, Zack Kassian entered last night’s match-up between the Vancouver Canucks and the Edmonton Oilers as public enemy number one. Threats of retribution followed immediately after that incident back in September, and for his part, Kass was ready regardless of whatever the Oilers threw his way. Except the Oilers didn’t throw much of anything the Canucks’ way last night. The Canucks were as dominant as the Oilers were soft. Roberto Luongo recorded his 3rd shutout of the season, Jason Garrison had 3 assists, and hell, Dale Weise scored a powerplay...Click here to read more.
This time, John Garrett didn’t say the dreaded ‘s’ word. And this time, the Canucks didn’t let in a softie with seconds left on the clock, and hung on for a 2-0 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Chris Tanev scored the eventual game-winning goal 3:35 into the game, and Eddie Lack made 31 saves for his first career shutout in his first ever home start. Yes, it was a good day. #Canucks win & @eddielack gets a shutout. Thank you for shutting up Garrett. #TGATT — G. Justine Galo (@Aviewfromabroad) December 10, 2013Click here to read more.
Don’t get us wrong, the Canucks’ 3-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche was nice. But seriously, losing a shutout with 7.1 seconds left, and former Canucks goaltender turned Canucks colour man John Garrett bringing the jinx? Gah! Blame it on Cheech. #Canucks #TGATT — Bruce Ng (@transcendwebs) December 9, 2013Click 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.
Before this morning’s matinee matchup between the Vancouver Canucks and the New York Rangers, much of the storyline revolved around coach John Tortorella’s return to Madison Square Garden for the first time since being fired in May. And when asked whether or not he’d be visiting some old Rangers, he said, “I’m going to coach this game, hopefully kick their ass and get outta here.” Well, a Chris Kreider hat trick, a 35-save performance by rookie goaltender, Cam Talbot, and a 5-2 Rangers win later, Torts did coach and the Canucks are off to Carolina now 1-1 on this 4-game...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.
After outplaying the Los Angeles Kings for much of the game and carrying a lead late into the third period, the Vancouver Canucks, thanks to a couple of miscues, dropped a 3-2 decision in overtime. It was perhaps one of the best games they’ve played in this homestand but it wasn’t enough. Instead, they ended their 6-game homestand with 5 losses, and since dominating the Toronto Maple Leafs on Pavel Bure night, have now lost 8 of their last 10 games. Well that sucks. #Canucks #TGATT — Chris Golden (@lyteforce) November 26, 2013 Yes it does.Click here to read more.
Still high from the feeling of euphoria after beating the Columbus Blue Jackets – yes, it’s come to that – the Vancouver Canucks squared off against their arch-enemies, the Chicago Blackhawks, last night. And things were going well too. The Canucks stopped the first shot (!), opened the scoring (!!) on the powerplay (!!!), and took a lead into the third period against the Blackhawks. Roberto Luongo was playing well too, making some big saves when the Canucks gave up numerous Hawks odd-man rushes and keeping his team’s precarious 1-0 lead intact even when Chicago started dominating play. Or at...Click here to read more.
