Mired in a 3-game losing slump, the Canucks called a team meeting prior to facing the Minnesota Wild on Sunday night. Did it work? So they don't take an early penalty, but give up an early goal. Brutal. #Canucks down 1-0 just 24 seconds in. #TGATT — Canucks Hockey Blog (@canuckshockey) March 11, 2013 Ummm…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.

In a grudge match of sorts, the Canucks host the Los Angeles Kings for the first time since the Kings eliminated them in the first round of last year’s playoffs. Opened a beer. Now THIS is a game.

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.Click 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.
The Canucks are in Minnesota, the second – and last – stop of their mini two-game road trip. Zach Parise would now like his name to be pronounced ‘Par-easy’. Obviously, everyone makes fun of him for his pronunciation preferences. Is it just me or are Shorty & Cheech saying "Pareasy" as much as possible? #trollingParise #TGATT #CanucksG10 — doubleLuonGOLD (@luonGOLD) February 8, 2013 Dale Weise would like his last name pronounced "Gretzky" claims Dale. — Wyatt Arndt (@TheStanchion) February 8, 2013 Remember when Cody Hodgson tried to correct all of our pronunciations of his last name? Good times.Click here to read more.
