The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 3 at Capitals 4 0

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 3 at Capitals 4

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...

Clay’s Canucks Composition: End of the Road (We Thank You, Lu)

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.

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 2 vs. Senators 4

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

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 1 vs. Wild 2 (SO)

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...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 1 at Leafs 3

I supposed all good things eventually had to come to an end. Before last night’s game, the Canucks had won 11 consecutive games against the Toronto Maple Leafs, dating back to November 2003. So much for that. But you know what’s still going? The Canucks’ losing streak. This two-week Olympic break couldn’t come soon enough. Thank god for #Sochi2014 – I’m kinda looking forward to cheering for another team guilt-free. #Canucks #TGATT — Roxy (@RmystiQue78) February 8, 2014
