Cab Fare & Limos: 10 Things That Roberto Luongo May Have Said to Patrick Kane

Cab Fare & Limos: 10 Things That Roberto Luongo May Have Said to Patrick Kane

In quite a comical scene from Friday night’s game between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Vancouver Canucks, Roberto Luongo and Patrick Kane shared a few words as they were sprawled on the ice together seconds after Luongo foiled Kane’s shootout attempt (see video below).  Two rounds later, rookie Jordan Schroeder beat the Hawks’ Corey Crawford before Luongo stopped Nick Leddy to seal the 2-1 win. Reports surfaced later that Luongo said to Kane “Not this time” as the two players untangled themselves.  Even so, the two rivals were within earshot of each other for a full five seconds after Kane’s...

The Longest 17 Minutes of My Life (Reliving Game 7 from April 2011)

I’m looking forward to tonight’s big match-up between the Vancouver Canucks and their nemesis the Chicago Blackhawks for a few reasons.  I’m intrigued to see how Roberto Luongo plays against his arch-rivals as the fascinating goaltending saga goes on.  I’m eager to see if guys like Zack Kassian and Keith Ballard can keep up their strong play.  I’m looking forward to some quality time with my lovely wife Gail (who patiently puts up with my blogging shenanigans).  And I wonder if there will be any retribution for Duncan Keith for his dirty hit on Daniel Sedin at the end of...

Canucks and Hawks has makings of a bloodbath

Canucks and Hawks has makings of a bloodbath

Hey, remember last season? It seems like forever ago, but it was just 10 months ago when this happened: Looking at it ten months after the fact, nothing changes how I view this hit. It was cheap and dirty. The puck is nowhere near the same stratosphere as Daniel Sedin when Duncan Keith launches a high elbow right in his jaw. If you recall correctly, Keith received just a two-minute elbowing penalty but also got supplemental discipline handed down: A five-game Shanaban. But the damage had been done to the Canucks. Daniel Sedin was sidelined with a concussion, and missed...

Shooting From the Hip With @AY604: Keep it Simple, Stupid!

Although I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting @AY604 in person yet, we have a connection that extends beyond Twitter.  It turns out that one of Adrian’s good friends played hockey with my cousin Dusty in Japan back in the day.  And thanks to the generosity of both his friend and my cousin, Adrian is the proud owner of some bright red Vaughn goalie pads.  They look pretty darn sweet. In his words: Adrian (@AY604) was born on a tiny island in the South Pacific known for its high end, square shaped bottled water or what the locals call ‘tap’....

And already in 4 of their first 6 games, the Canucks couldn’t hang on to leads like Dustin Diamond couldn’t hang on to his dignity.

Dear LA Kings, you guys are jerks.

Dear LA Kings, you guys are jerks.

Sometimes, LA Kings, being different doesn’t mean you’re innovative or a trailblazer or the first to discover something new and brilliant. Sometimes it just means you’re doing it wrong.

The Canucks then ended the week in San Jose, where they couldn’t take advantage of Ryane Clowe’s meltdowns and numerous powerplay advantages, and couldn’t find any puck luck from the hockey gods (5 posts!) en route to a 4-1 loss.
