When Musical Bloggers Unite: Someone Like Lu

A couple of weeks ago, CHB favourite Marie Hui and I put together a tribute song to Roberto Luongo when he was traded to the Florida Panthers.  We performed Boyz II Men’s smash hit “End of the Road“. Well, it seems like I’m not the only blogger who likes to write songs about Bobby Lu.  Harrison Mooney of Pass it to Bulis penned a farewell song to Luongo to the tune of Adele’s mega-hit “Someone Like You.”  Harrison contacted me to help him with the music and within 5 seconds we had agreed to invite Marie to join us. The...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 4 vs. Panthers 3 (SO)

Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? The Canucks stroll into Florida, face Roberto Luongo and the Panthers, blow a late lead, and then win a shootout. Again, the kids – especially Nicklas Jensen and Eddie Lack – played well. All things considered, I guess we can’t ask for more than that. Thing 3 triumphs over Thing 1 with a goal from Jensen and big saves from the Stork. #welldonegrasshopper #TGATT #CanucksvsLuongo — doubleLuonGOLD (@luonGOLD) March 16, 2014 Like this:Like Loading…

Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Panthers: It’s All About Lu

(Photo credit: windsorstar.com) The Vancouver Canucks will take on the Florida Panthers in a noon time matinee today. On this road trip so far, they’re 1-1-0, and finish off with a back-to-back today and tomorrow night against the Tampa Bay Lightning. But despite every point being so crucial to the Canucks, despite every remaining game of the season being a make-or-break game – and you can throw every other cliche out here – today, forget everything else. All everyone wants to talk about is facing long-time face of the franchise and winningest goaltender in Canucks history, Roberto Luongo, since he...

Clay’s Canucks Composition: End of the Road (We Thank You, Lu)

After eight memorable and exciting seasons with the Vancouver Canucks, goaltender Roberto Luongo was traded to the Florida Panthers on March 4, 2014. Thus, Marie Hui and I wanted to bid Bobby Lu a proper farewell.  Inspired by Boyz II Men, we proudly present our version of their smash hit “End of the Road”.

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 2 vs. Panthers 3 (SO)

Another game, another loss. With their 3-2 loss to the Florida Panthers (!), the Vancouver Canucks have now lost 5 games in a row for the first time in nearly 5 years. The good news is, they scored more than a single goal in a game for the first time in almost 2 weeks. And Roberto Luongo again had a solid game, stopping 34 of 36 shots in regulation and 2 of 3 Panthers in the shootout. But the Canucks’ offensive woes extended into the shootout, and again, no Canucks shooter was able to beat Tim Thomas mano-a-mano; in 4...

2013/2014 NHL Season Preview: Atlantic Division 0

2013/2014 NHL Season Preview: Atlantic Division

On the eve of the start of the 2013/2014 NHL regular season, I preview the 30 teams, one division at a time. Photo credit: Sportsnet Boston Bruins The Good It’s scary to think, but the Bruins, which made the Stanley Cup Finals last year, may have added some more pop to their offense. Not only is their core is largely intact, with David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron coming off healthy seasons, but the B’s also replaced the injury-prone, Nathan Horton, with 25+ goals winger, Loui Eriksson, and 41-year old Jaromir Jagr with a slightly-younger but extremely-motivated Jarome Iginla. The Bad...
