The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 3 at Avalanche 7

The Canucks played their third game in four nights on Friday against the Avalanche in Denver, coming off a solid 4-1 win against the St. Louis Blues just the night before. They beat an NHL team not from Alberta – wooooo! Jocelyn Aspa recaps the game in your tweets.

Things That Make You Go Hmmm: Pre-Preseason Edition

While Arsenio Hall’s talk show comeback was short-lived – it only lasted a year – I’m pleased to write this Arsenio-inspired feature on CHB for the 5th year. Every week, I’ll take a look at elements of the Canucks – whether it be games, incidents, players, and/or management – that may make us wonder and ask questions.

CHB Countdown: Top 5 Reasons Why the Canucks Will Not Make the Playoffs

It is truly hard to pinpoint one reason why the Canucks will be on the outside looking in this spring. It would be unfair to blame their failures on one key thing. So I’m going to go ahead and name five. It’s been an abysmal year for the Canucks and unless some youth is injected into the lineup next season, we may be in store for a few more. The core which seemed so indestructible just two short years ago is imploding and many of the veterans seem nonchalant and indifferent to the failures of this season. Injuries took their toll and the team’s plethora...

You Be The Judge: Nino Niederreiter’s “Good, Open Ice Hit” to the Head of Alex Burrows

You Be The Judge: Nino Niederreiter’s “Good, Open Ice Hit” to the Head of Alex Burrows

If you want to get your blood boiling early on a Thursday morning, watch the Minnesota feed of Nino Niederreiter’s elbow to the head of Alex Burrows. “Ridiculous call”, they say. “Good, open ice hit”, they say. In terms of homer announcers, this one tops the charts. For all the heightened sensitivity to head shots and concussions and all that, the NHL, of course, agrees with them, and Niederreiter is scot-free and has been cleared to play in the Wild’s game tonight in St. Louis. In other words, the NHL has deemed his 2-minute trip to the box as sufficient...

Game Day Preview: Nothing to Lose versus Panicked and Desperate.

Game Day Preview: Nothing to Lose versus Panicked and Desperate.

Nothing to Lose Nashville is pretty solidly out of the playoffs. I find this to possibly be their biggest advantage in tonight. Teams with nothing to lose tend to play much better than teams with something to lose. Also I think this game will be scrappy because the Preds are probably bitter and angry that they’ll be missing the playoffs for the second consecutive year (and only the second time since 2003) and the Canucks will be panicky and feisty because they’re desperate. I predict a Sestito fight or two. But Canucks will need to keep their heads (I’m looking...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 3 at Lightning 4

Hmmm… Where was this Alex Burrows earlier this season? With a couple more goals last night, Burr now has 5 goals in 3 games. That's my Burrows! #Canucks #TGATT — Walter Siu (@waterboy99troop) March 18, 2014 Silver lining, I suppose, amidst the Canucks’ pretty much closed playoff window.

Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Lightning: Remembering that even Tampa Bay has won the Stanley Cup

Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Lightning: Remembering that even Tampa Bay has won the Stanley Cup

(Photo credit: lightning.nhl.com) After defeating Roberto Luongo and the Florida Panthers yesterday afternoon, the Canucks are hoping to close their 4-game road trip with back-to-back wins, which, if they pull off, would be their first win streak in a couple of months. But more importantly, it would keep their faint hope of making the playoffs alive, potentially inching to within a point of the 8th place Dallas Stars, who currently hold the final wild card playoff spot. The Stars will, however, have 4 games in hand. Nevertheless, hope, right? Celebrating a Cup Win The Tampa Bay Lightning will end a...
