Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Ducks: Home Cooking

(source: nhl.com) Vancouver Canucks (23-13-7) Anaheim Ducks (30-8-5) The Vancouver Canucks are hoping for a better outcome tonight as they return to the Honda Centre for the second time this season. In their first visit back on November 10th, they lost 3-1. Unfortunately, that won’t be easy. The Ducks are the NHL’s best home team and haven’t lost in regulation in 18 games on home ice this season. They’re 16-0-2, including 6 consecutive wins in which they’ve outscored the opposition 24-12. Overall, they’ve won 11 of their last 12 games, and with 65 points, they lead the Pacific Division by...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 1 at Kings 3

Roberto Luongo came back from injury last night against the Los Angeles Kings. Unfortunately, he was the only one who showed up. He made 46 saves – many of them from in-close and as a result of odd-man rushes – but without much support up front, the Canucks dropped a 3-1 decision to the Kings, their third straight loss to their California rivals this season. The #Canucks deserve to lose this game, Luongo doesn't. #tgatt — G. Justine Galo (@Aviewfromabroad) January 5, 2014

(Photo credit: thescore.com) Vancouver Canucks (23-12-7) Los Angeles Kings (25-13-4) Tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Kings could mean more for the Vancouver Canucks than avenging their disappointing loss in their last meeting on November 25th. In that game, the Canucks took a 2-1 lead early in the third period, only to see the Kings tie it up with less than 3 minutes left, and then eventually win it 48 seconds into the overtime period. That game was the last game of the Canucks’ 6-game homestand, one in which they won just once (1-2-3). By the end of that game,...

So much for starting off 2014 on the right foot. I set out to make a hungover themed #TGATT, and the game pretty much played along. — Lizz Moffat (@lizzmoffat) January 2, 2014 D’oh!

CHB Countdown: Top 5 Kevin Bieksa Moments

CHB Countdown: Top 5 Kevin Bieksa Moments

Typically, 5th round picks become forgotten players who either provide depth for the minor league club or fizzle out and turn to other professions. Kevin Bieksa refused this notion fighting his way onto the Canucks via a mix of hard work, toughness and skill. Since his inaugural season with the Canucks in 2005, Bieksa has been a mainstay. But while his role on the team has changed over the years, his value has remained static. Bieksa is a leader both on and off the ice serving as one of the assistant captains and as one of the more colorful personalities...

Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Lightning: A Make-or-Break Month

(source: nhl.com) Vancouver Canucks (23-11-7) Tampa Bay Lightning (23-12-4) The Vancouver Canucks ended 2013 with an impressive 10-1-2 December record. They hope to keep rolling in 2014, but their January schedule gets considerably tougher. Tonight, they’ll meet the Tampa Bay Lightning, who currently sits in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference. Afterwards, they have the Los Angeles Kings (twice), Anaheim Ducks (twice), Pittsburgh Penguins, St. Louis Blues, Phoenix Coyotes (twice) and Chicago Blackhawks, among others, on tap. The Lightning look to get back to their winning ways to start 2014. They’re coming off consecutive losses after going on a season-high...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 3 at Flyers 4 (SO)

On one end of the rink was Steve Mason, whose career the entire NHL, save the Philadelphia Flyers, had left for dead. Much was made about his past poor performances, especially against the Canucks, seemingly forgetting that he’s actually been pretty damn good during the Flyers’ 15-6-4 surge prior to last night’s game. On the other end was Tom Sestito, who was waived by those very same Flyers last season and then claimed by the Canucks, and has served as some sort of a whipping boy to Canucks fans ever since. Both Mason and Sestito had lots to prove. And...

Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Flyers: The New Year’s Eve (Kinda) Tradition Returns

Already with a 10-1-1 record this month, it’s shaping out to be a December to remember for the Vancouver Canucks. They have a chance to add to that as they meet the Philadelphia Flyers tonight at Rogers Arena, where the Canucks have won all 6 home games this month. This is the Flyers’ first visit to Vancouver in three years. Tonight will be the second and final regular season meeting for the Canucks and Flyers. In their first game back on October 15th at the Wells Fargo Center, the Canucks rallied back from a 2-1 third period deficit to win...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 2 at Flames 0

No Luongo? No problem. For the second time in his last 3 starts, Eddie Lack recorded a shutout as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Calgary Flames 2-0 in Calgary. For the season, he now has a 7-2-0 record, a 1.74 GAA (3rd in the NHL) and 0.933 save percentage (6th in the NHL). Another shutout for @eddielack!!! #lackdance #Canucks #TGATT — Elmee Garner (@giggling_elms) December 30, 2013 That sound you hear is another goaltender controversy slowly growing because, you know, that’s what we Canucks fans do.
