The road to a playoff spot in the Pacific division goes through the three California teams, so as the Canucks are in the middle of three straight vs the Ducks, Sharks and Kings, it’s worth taking a look at whether Vancouver has actually improved their play against their division rivals.
In a week in which the Canucks played just two games before the Christmas break, it was easy to select the Performance of the Week. As the Canucks trounced the Arizona Coyotes 7-1 in their last game before getting their eggnog on, Alex Burrows notched two goals, ending his 9-game goalless drought in a big way.
Thanks to Chris Tanev’s OT winner, the Canucks finally put an end to their 5-game losing streak on Saturday night against the Calgary Flames. For his efforts, we bestow him with this week’s Performance of the Week honors.
Not only does Episode 36 have Chris returning to the podcast after a one-week hiatus, it’s his return that single-handedly broke the Canucks losing streak. Or something like that. Chris and Matt, sans Clay, discuss the Canucks streak-breaking win over the Calgary Flames and share what went through their minds when Jannik Hansen collapsed on the bench. And with only one game left before the holiday break, it seemed to be the perfect opportunity to not only discuss the World Juniors tournament, but also to “rumourmonger” potential Canucks trades. All that and more in the Christmas episode of C4. The...
Both the Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames entered Saturday’s game on some pretty heavy-duty losing streaks. The Canucks had lost 5 in a row, and the Flames had lost 7, so both teams, naturally, were looking to bounce back and get a much-needed W. Jocelyn Aspa recaps the game in your tweets.
Just in time for Christmas, Marie (@mariehui) and I proudly present to you a special compilation of custom Canucks Christmas carols. Hear new takes on old classics like Hansen the Honey Badger (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer), Radim Vrbata (Feliz Navidad), Get it Bo! (Let it Snow!), This Christmas, and Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas. We were absolutely thrilled to work with the Vancouver Canucks on this project and are extremely grateful for the opportunity and for their trust. Special shout out to Paul Albi (@AlbiJr) for all his hard work to make this happen. Also, big thanks to...
Our favorite (and least favorite) NHLers may be a little busy this holiday season so we’d thought we’d pen some Christmas cards for them.
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.
