Photo credit: canucks.nhl.com When Cody Hodgson scored in Tuesday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks, it was his 14th goal of the season. This is significant because not only does it tie him with Ryan Kesler for third among his Canucks teammates in goals (only Daniel Sedin with 22 goals and Alex Burrows with 18 goals have more goals than him) and brings him to within one goal of NHL rookie goal scoring leader, Matt Read (15 goals), but more importantly for the Canucks, it tied the game 2-2, less than 3 minutes after Viktor Stalberg had scored and given Chicago...Click here to read more.

Shooting from the Hip with @causticchick: All-Star Game Thoughts, Weber as a Canuck, and Cody Exceeding Expectations
[Every week, Clayton Imoo sits down and talks hockey with a CHB follower and fellow fan. If you’re interested in being featured in “Shooting from the Hip”, send us a tweet at @canuckshockey or @CanuckClay.] Born and raised in glorious Vancouver, BC, Lindsay (@causticchick) grew up in a household where being a Canucks fan was only a casual affair. She’s always considered herself a fan, with her love for the team growing especially in the early ’90s leading up to the 1994 cup run, but her true devotion reached a fever pitch in the last five years, mostly due to...Click here to read more.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the above video must be worth, well, a lot more than that. With no less than 8 defensemen already on the roster, was Chris Tanev’s call-up yesterday a signal that the Canucks are ready to trade a defenseman? Or does it simply mean that Sami Salo will be out for a longer period of time? Regardless of the reason, I’m sure coaches AV and Bones are happy to have another right-side defenseman in their lineup, rather than having to play every other defenseman other than Dan Hamhuis and Kevin Bieksa on their...Click here to read more.
[Every week, Caylie King looks at the Canucks week that was and the Canucks week ahead. You can follow Caylie on Twitter (@CayKing).] Since the epic win against the Bruins, the Canucks are 2-2-0 and haven’t looked like the team that rolled through much of November and December. You can even say they were lucky to win against the Lightning and Blues. In their most recent loss, against the 14th place Anaheim Ducks, the Canucks looked out of synch and were outshot and outhustled most of the night. That said, the great thing about an 82-game season is that the...Click here to read more.
Photo credit: canucks.nhl.com It was about as heated as everyone anticipated; the Vancouver Canucks showed their disdain for the Boston Bruins and vice-versa. Neither team was willing to let the other off the hook so easily, but at the end of the day it was Vancouver eking out the 4-3 victory and coming away with the two points, just like they hoped. But beyond just the brawls and powerplay prowess, it was two of Vancouver’s most tradeable assets who truly shined in this heated affair. Cody Hodgson had an assist and blasted home the eventual game-winning goal in just 11:19...Click here to read more.
