After Chris made his bold prediction that the Canucks would go oh-fer on this road trip, the team posted back-to-back shut out wins. In an effort to figure out what to expect with tonight’s game against the Panthers and another tomorrow against the Lightning, they pick apart the two games and figure out what has changed.

How do you top a shutout in Philly? With a shutout in Carolina of course. Victoria Denault recaps the game in your tweets.
It’s episode 40 of C4 and Matt kicks it off by asking Chris if it’s time to panic. According to Chris, the timeline is definitely dark enough to think so.
The Canucks are half-way through their 2014-2015 NHL season with a 23-15-3 record for a total of 49 points. The team has slowed down considerably after a strong start and they now sit 4th in the Pacific Division (and in the second wild-card playoff spot) albeit with games in hand on every team in the Western Conference. There are a few concerning things that I’ve noticed in the Canucks’ recent games. And I’ll point them out to you below…without mentioning a single stat. Thus, here are a few things that make you go hmmm: The Canucks aren’t that fast. Up...
Performance of the Week could’ve easily been given to former Canuck Roberto Luongo — and he’d no doubt deserve it — but I’ve already written about him — and he’s not really on this team anymore, so there’s also that.

Episode 39 of C4 sees Chris join Matt in studio as they take a look at the Canucks’ disappointing start to 2015. They discuss the poor results from the recent home stand and look at the lack of offense. They also gave some time to potential targets to trade with and who might be moving from the Canucks. As well, Chris provides an update on the Canucks #SocialSuite – put on by the Canucks and Save-On-Foods – before losing his mind when reflecting on the Cam Neely trade. Somehow, regular segment “Half Full, Half Empty” becomes “Full Empty” and wait...
After an emotional game against Roberto Luongo and the Florida Panthers on Thursday night, the Canucks were looking to bounce back against the Calgary Flames on Saturday night, something they seem to do often enough. (I mean, the Flames are like the Canucks’ safety blanket.) Jocelyn Aspa recaps the game in your tweets.
It’s hard to prepare yourself for the kind of night Thursday’s Luongo Night was. You know it’s going to be raw and emotional, seeing your former number one goaltender between the pipes at the other end of the rink.
It’s the most excited Vancouver fans have ever been to see the Florida Panthers. No, the Panthers didn’t suddenly get good, it’s Mr. Roberto Luongo’s first trip back to Vancity since being traded last year. Lizz Moffat recaps the game in your tweets.
Episode 38 of C4 is live with Matt and Clay chatting about the Smylosphere topic of the year (so far) – Roberto Luongo’s return to Vancouver. Does Luongo receive cheers from an adoring crowd? Or do “boos” instead of “loos” rain down from the upper bowl? And is either deserved?
