Channeling the Power of the 5-7-5: Canucks Playoff Haiku

With the Edmonton Oilers’ surprise victory over the Los Angeles Kings last night, the Vancouver Canucks clinched a playoff berth and return to the post-season after a brief one-year absence.  Prior to last season, the last time the Canucks missed the playoffs was the 2007-2008 season. The Canucks have surprised just about everyone with their performance this year as they have a good chance of finishing second in the Pacific Division.  I was quietly confident from the beginning of the season that they would return to the playoffs.  My C4 podcast co-hosts Chris and Matt didn’t share my optimism so...

You Be The Judge: Should Andrew Ference be suspended?

While the hit wasn’t late like Burrows, it’s clear that Ference leaves his feet, elevates his shoulders, and hits Kassian in the head. If Burrows got 3 games for his hit, you be the judge, should Ference be suspended?

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 2 vs. Oilers 4

After being out since October, Jordan Schroeder returned to the Canucks’ lineup last night and promptly made an impact. He scored his first 2 goals of the season – the Canucks’ only 2 goals of the night. So… Tum Tum (Schroeder) was the missing link? #Canucks #TGATT — Chris Golden (@lyteforce) January 27, 2014 It’s too bad David Perron scored 3 goals himself, and the Canucks went on to drop a 4-2 decision to the Edmonton Oilers.

Who’s Hot As we all know, the...

Talking Hockeyville with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

CBC is upping the ante with Kraft Hockeyville this year, by bringing in five NHL stars to help promote the annual event that helps Canadians brush up on their geography. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Scott Hartnell, Nathan MacKinnon, David Clarkson, and Daniel Briere will each be representing a region of Canada, and helping to bring Hockeyville to one lucky community. While most of the world prefers their football (both kinds) or even cricket, Canada is one of the few to pledge allegiance to the ice. Unfortunately, hockey is also expensive. Besides the equipment and the litany of ever breaking sticks and outgrown...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 2 at Oilers 1

Sans Torts and sans Hank, the Canucks went into Edmonton last night and took on the Edmonton Oilers. Despite not having their coach or their captain, the Canucks did okay. For starters, Kellan Lain played more than 2 seconds, and in fact, on his second shift if the game, scored his first career NHL goal. Roberto Luongo stopped 28 of 29 shots, and Zack Kassian scored the game-winner (and drove the Oilers players nuts all game). On the other hand, the Oilers offered little resistance, which, I suppose after a week like last week is a welcome change. Garrett:”the oilers...
