No Luongo? No problem. For the second time in his last 3 starts, Eddie Lack recorded a shutout as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Calgary Flames 2-0 in Calgary. For the season, he now has a 7-2-0 record, a 1.74 GAA (3rd in the NHL) and 0.933 save percentage (6th in the NHL). Another shutout for @eddielack!!! #lackdance #Canucks #TGATT — Elmee Garner (@giggling_elms) December 30, 2013 That sound you hear is another goaltender controversy slowly growing because, you know, that’s what we Canucks fans do.

Santa has made his list. He’s checked it twice. Here’s which Canucks are naughty and which are nice! (See what I did there? I’m such a poet!) Santa’s Nice List David Booth. I think even Santa is stunned about this turnaround. David wasn’t exactly on the naughty list (well maybe with the reindeer who fear for their life). He was mostly not on any list. I’m not even sure Santa knew where he was what with the whole conditioning Utica drama. You can call it a Christmas miracle, but David Booth has cemented himself on the Nice list with his...

Who knew Chris could be a trendsetter?
In a serious case of déjà vu, it took more than overtime for the Canucks to beat the Columbus Blue Jackets and salvage the road trip. I wonder how fans feel about that? Is it bad that I'm relieved about a win over the Blue Jackets? #Yikes #Canucks — Chris Pysanczyn (@Pysanczyn) March 13, 2013 Oh my.
Much like the Canucks had problems getting going against the Columbus Blue Jackets, we had some technical difficulties of our own.
…. Does everyone have their Red Bull, espresso and chocolate-covered coffee beans? Whatever it takes, people, whatever it takes.
It’s an early game in Detroit today. Luckily NASCAR finished on time, so there were no TV conflicts in my house. None of the duct taped cars won, so I was pretty disappointed.

With their make-shift forward lines and Luongo’s hyped return to Montreal, the table was set for an entertaining game. We certainly weren’t disappointed, as always there are a few Things That Make Me Go Hmmm…...
