Canucks vs. Oilers Game Day Preview: Oil Spills

Canucks vs. Oilers Game Day Preview: Oil Spills

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...

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.

The team is battered and bruised, but made it to Phoenix. Well most of them did. Steve Pinizzotto and Zack Kassian did not. Chris Higgins did, but tweaked his back in the morning and couldn’t play. At this point they really just need to hold on and bubble wrap everyone. At all times.

Still trying to get last night’s game out of our minds, we’re provided the best tonic – a game the following night against St. Louis rolling in hot. "3 shots in twenty minutes" sounds like a really crappy drinking game. — Don Falconer (@TheFalconer) March 20, 2013 SOCIABLE!!

Clay’s Canucks Commentary:  Happy Hansen, Erratic Edler, and Ballard’s Return

Clay’s Canucks Commentary: Happy Hansen, Erratic Edler, and Ballard’s Return

I look at the good, the bad, and the interesting from the Canucks’ 3-2 shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks from Tuesday, March 5 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. The game between these two evenly-matched opponents started off a tad slowly but certainly picked up as the game entered the second-half of the second period and beyond. In the video, I touch on the Sedins, Jannik Hansen, the Canucks’ compete level, Alex Edler, our power-play, Keith Ballard’s return (and injury), and overtime shots on goal.

Canucks Review and Preview: March 4 to 10, 2013

You can say the Canucks had a week that has been typical of their NHL season so far – if there’s one thing this team has shown through their first 21 games, it’s that they’ve been consistent in their inconsistency.

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. THIS I've missed. #playlikewinners #playlikechampions #TGATT @canucksgame — Arielle Tuliao (@ajtuliao) March 3, 2013 Hockey, check. Beer, check. Here we go.

Clay Imoo (@canuckclay) will be recapping every Vancouver Canucks game with a quick post-game video commentary.  As a start, Clay looks at the good, the bad, and the interesting from the Canucks’ 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings from March 2 at Rogers Arena. In the video, Clay touches on the Canucks’ top 2 scoring lines, Cory Schneider’s suspect puck-handling, the benching of Keith Ballard, the debut of new enforcer Tom Sestito, and the LA Kings twitter account.

Has everyone recovered from the Canucks’ 8-3 meltdown in Detroit on Sunday afternoon? How about from their Oscar hangovers?

I hope everyone got off work in time, because this game is not waiting for you. Seriously, they’re not waiting for anyone, not even Eddie Lack.
