After a messy 60 minutes that could roughly be called a “game” against the New York Rangers on Saturday, the Canucks look to redeem themselves against the Dallas Stars. Lizz Moffat recaps the game in your tweets.
Selecting someone worthy of this honor is tricky because in the only two games they played, they lost 3-1 to the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday and were embarrassed 5-1 to the Rangers on Saturday night on national TV. With only 2 goals in 2 games and 8 goals against, the Canucks’ defense was pretty much non-existent, and really, so was the offense.
Episode 35 has the Canucks not only back at home, but missing their early season mojo and rolling along with a four-game losing streak. And not to be left out, even Chris has gone missing leaving Matt and Clay to discuss all that matters with hockey in Vancouver. Today’s chatter ranges from goaltending to Superskills, a shellacking by the Rangers and a porous defence. And to tie up the episode in a nice little bow is a discussion on whether or not Horvat will make Canada’s World Junior team – or even if the Canucks will let him try out....
The Vancouver Canucks return from their longest road trip of the season with 7 out of a possible 14 points. After a great start to the road trip the Canucks staggered home with three straight losses.

With the Canucks on the road for the better part of two-and-a-half weeks, back-to-back losses in Ontario are fresh on their mind and the pessimistic Matt and Chris are in need of all the optimism Clay can muster.
This week’s performance of the week should come as no surprise because: a) well, Eddie Lack’s mom tweeted at him and it was adorable; and b) Eddie Lack notched his 5th career shutout last Thursday, a 22-save shutout against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Looking to forget their rare loss against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night, the Vancouver Canucks play game 6 of their 7-game road trip in Ottawa against the Senators. Jocelyn Aspa recaps the game in your tweets.
