With a 2-1 shootout victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets in Columbus, the Canucks were able to avenge last week’s 2-1 overtime defeat to the same team in the same arena. This time, highlights included the strong goaltending of Roberto Luongo and Mason Raymond’s spin-o-rama goal in the shootout. In this video, I touch on Roberto Luongo’s strong game, David Booth’s aggressive play, Alex Burrows sliding into Luongo, boarding penalties, the goaltending situation, Cam Barker’s offensive prowess, and Tom Sestito’s decreasing playing time.Click here to read more.

The Vancouver Canucks dropped their 4th straight loss – this one a 4-2 decision to the Minnesota Wild in Minnesota. I didn’t get a chance to watch this game so instead I relied on some insight from one of my colleagues here at CHB: Caylie King (@cayking). Through the magic of WhatsApp, Caylie provided me insight on scoring, fighting, and injuries. With the Minnesota win, they overtook the Canucks for first place in the Northwest Division for the first time since December 2011. At that time, I wrote a song called “Under the Minneso” – a spoof of Justin Bieber’s...Click here to read more.
Clay Imoo (@canuckclay) will be recapping every Vancouver Canucks game with a quick post-game video commentary. As a start, Clay looks at the good, the bad, and the interesting from the Canucks’ 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings from March 2 at Rogers Arena. In the video, Clay touches on the Canucks’ top 2 scoring lines, Cory Schneider’s suspect puck-handling, the benching of Keith Ballard, the debut of new enforcer Tom Sestito, and the LA Kings twitter account.Click here to read more.
Welcome to Dallas, Texas, where everything is bigger. None bigger than Brett Hull’s skate. Tonight, the Stars celebrate Marty Turco. Canucks fans have fond memories of him. Marty Turco. The man who shut out the #canucks three times in one playoff series and still lost. — Dan Murphy (@sportsnetmurph) February 22, 2013Click here to read more.
The Canucks look for a win against Dallas after a pedantic win over Minnesota. And back after a spell with Chris Golden & Victoria Pattison behind the CHB TGATT desk tonight, you know Lizz will be bringing here A game.

The Canucks are back from a short two-game roadtrip where they potted four solid points and are looking to douse the Flames. And with Chris Golden manning the CHB TGATT desk tonight, you all know what that means: Well, this game is going fast. Top Gun fast. #Canucks #TGATT — Walter Siu (@waterboy99troop) February 10, 2013 That’s right. Top Freaking Gun!Click here to read more.
Are you ready for this? I hope so, because it’s Canucks v. Blackhawks baby!Click here to read more.
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...Click here to read more.

Clowe heads back to the box for high-sticking. He has a full out tantrum about it, earning him another, like, a zillion penalties. He’s done for the night.Click here to read more.
