After a long, grueling road-trip the Canucks were looking to ease their way back into the game with a nice home-start against the Washington Capitals. Unfortunately for them, the “Hockey Gods” had other plans and granted the Caps a penalty shot less than two minutes into the game. But hey, at least the shooter was only Alex Ovechkin, league leader in goal-scoring and the reigning Hart Trophy winner (SARCASM). Fortunately for the ‘Nucks, Bobby-Lou was on his game and held Ovi off the scoresheet, allowing our boys to cruise to a 3-2 victory. The Canucks have had a few historical moments involving the “most...Click here to read more.

(Photo credit: National Post) Vancouver Canucks (9-5-1) Toronto Maple Leafs (10-4-0) On Pavel Bure night tonight, the Vancouver Canucks will attempt to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs for the 11th straight meeting. Meanwhile, the Leafs will attempt to complete a 3-game sweep as they close out their Western Conference road trip. Because of the lockout last season, the two teams haven’t met since February 2012. In that game, the Sedins and Alex Burrows combined for 10 points (3 goals and 7 assists) as the Canucks won handily, by a 6-2 score. The Leafs are definitely improved since that 2012 meeting....Click here to read more.
Washington Capitals (5-6) Vancouver Canucks (8-4-1) After an impressive seven-game road trip (5-1-1), the Vancouver Canucks are back in Vancouver and will take on the Washington Capitals. As the Capitals look to start a new winning streak after their three-game winning streak came to an end on Saturday night with a 5-2 loss against the Calgary Flames, the Canucks look to continue their own three-game winning streak tonight. We welcome the Canucks back home, but also, we (expect to) welcome back Alexandre Burrows, who has been out since injuring his foot while blocking a shot on October 3rd during the...Click here to read more.
Photo credit: canucks.com The good news for the Vancouver Canucks is, tonight’s opponents aren’t the San Jose Sharks. The bad news is, the Canucks haven’t beaten tonight’s opponents, the Montreal Canadiens, at Rogers Arena since October 7, 2009. To complicate things for the Canucks, they’ll have to go against the storied Habs without top defensemen, Alex Edler, who was suspended for 3 games because Tomas Hertl lowered his head and skated it into Edler’s shoulder for his head shot on Tomas Hertl. Former Habs defenseman, Yannick Weber, who has been playing as a winger, is expected to move back and...Click here to read more.
Getting themselves off to a fantastic start in the first 10 minutes of the game two nights ago, Canucks nation held out hope that the team was quickly gelling under John Tortorella. But Vancouver dug themselves a hole, forced to kill off a two-minute 5-on-3 before a handful of turnovers led to two quick Sharks goals. Tonight, Vancouver looks for their first win of the year and have the chance to get it in front of their fans as they host their home opener against the Edmonton Oilers. Canucks Record 0-1-0, 0 points (6th in the Pacific Division, 12th in...Click here to read more.
In this last TGATT of the season, we recap the Canucks’ final game of the season – a 4-3 loss to the San Jose Sharks. Are you disappointed? Mad? Sad? Glad? I'm so upset that I'm eating a salad #TGATT — Elmee Garner (@giggling_elms) May 8, 2013 Some people drink to drown their sorrows, some eat salad. D’fferent strokes, I suppose.Click here to read more.
Cory Schneider’s got the flu so Roberto Luongo gets a start. And the Canucks had to sign University of Calgary Dino, Dustin Butler, to back him up.
No worries though. Lu’s got this – he made stopped 40 of 41 Flames shots en route to a 4-1 Canucks win.Click here to read more.
Still ravaged by injuries, the Canucks couldn’t muster enough emotion to keep up with the San Jose Sharks until it was too, too late.Click here to read more.
Photo credit: Vancouver Province A question as the NHL trade deadline approaches: Are the Edmonton Oilers buyers or sellers? On the one hand, the Oilers, with their big four up front consisting of Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nail Yakupov, and prized defenseman signing, Justin Schultz, have slogged their way through just 13 wins in 33 games this season. On the other hand, after back-to-back wins against the the St. Louis Blues and Columbus Blue Jackets, they’re only 3 points out of a playoff spot heading into tonight’s game against the Vancouver Canucks. It’s no secret the Oilers...Click here to read more.
Talk about two teams headed in opposite directions. After their 4-1 win last night over the Colorado Avalanche, the Canucks have now won 6 games in a row. The loss was the Avs’ 4th in a row and 8th in their last 9 games. Also, with Alex Burrows reunited with the Sedins, the first line once again looks rejuvenated and accounted for 3 of the team’s 4 goals. Burrows, Hank, Dank. That felt right. That felt right. #canucks @vancanucks @canucksgame #TGATT — Jay Jones (@BARJONESING) March 29, 2013 That’s good news for Canucks fans.Click here to read more.
