Well, that was a big monkey of their backs. After 5 consecutive losses, a stretch in which they scored a grand total of 6 goals, the Vancouver Canucks busted out of their slump in a big way, and beat the Columbus Blue Jackets by a 6-2 score. WHAT A GAME!!! Finally, all those shots paid off!! #Canucks #TGATT — Jacqueline B (@JacqSparrow) November 23, 2013 Here’s hoping this is the start of some good puck luck for the good guys.Click here to read more.

The Vancouver Canucks continued their long road trip with a 3-2 shootout victory over the Devils in New Jersey. Once again, it was the battle of former teammates as Roberto Luongo faced off against Cory Schneider (figuratively and not literally), giving me yet another opportunity to post my latest Canucks music video. But I digress. After overtime had concluded, the cameras caught John Tortorella, referee Wes McCauley, and a few Canucks players sharing a chuckle as Torts handed over his shootout line-up. We will likely never know what exactly they were all giggling about, but it’s sure fun to speculate....Click here to read more.
The Vancouver Canucks played the Pittsburgh Penguins in an early morning match-up so we get a dose of Sidney Crosby with our eggs and coffee. And that’s not even the best part.

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.
The season is still in diapers and I’m already confused. Here are some insights, speculation and just plain old rants about events around the league. The Canucks Eastern Doppelgänger Has anyone else noticed that for that last few years the Philadelphia Flyers have been the Vancouver Canucks’ Eastern Doppelganger? In recent years, a lot of people pick them as favorites (like Canucks) but despite their obvious talent they tend to implode (like the Canucks). They’ve signed goalies to ridiculously large contracts (like the Canucks). They’ve regretted it (like you-know-who). They always fall short in the playoffs (sadly, Canuck-esque). And just...Click here to read more.
If you’ve been off social media for the past couple of hours, you’ve likely missed the news that Alex Edler has been handed a 3 game suspension for the “illegal check to the head” of Tomas Hertl in last night’s game. And I’m likely about to say something that will upset a fair number of you. I think three games for Edler is reasonable. While there is considerable debate to the legality of Edler’s hit itself – of note there was no call on the ice at the time – it’s hard to argue with Brendan “Banahammer” Shanahan’s assertion 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.
With their 2-1 shootout win over the Detroit Red Wings last night, the Canucks clinched their spot in the 2013 NHL playoffs.
But who cares about all that? DJ Tanner and Aunt Becky were at the game.Click here to read more.
After rolling through some of the weaker teams in the West, the Canucks begin a stretch of games against potential playoff dance partners. They started with a game against the St. Louis Blues last night, a chippy affair that featured a lot of rough stuff and name calling, and resulted in a 2-1 Canucks loss in the shootout. So, of course, we find a way to work an O.C. reference in TGATT. Tomorrow's #TGATT features Wolverine and Ryan Atwood. So ya, it's gonna be a good morning. — Lizz Moffat (@lizzmoffat) April 17, 2013 Here’s the game recap in your...Click here to read more.
