After a rough, tough road trip that left them beaten physically, and perhaps, mentally and emotionally, the Vancouver Canucks are left nursing their wounds and Canucks fans wondering what it would it take to right the ship. The Canucks lost all 3 games on their just-concluded road trip, including one of their worst losses in memory, a 9-1 ass-kicking at the hands of the Anaheim Ducks. They scored a grand total of 1 goal in those 3 games, and to make matters worse, may have lost Henrik Sedin, their leading scorer, and Mike Santorelli, their fourth-leading goal scorer, to injuries....Click here to read more.

After going 0-fer on this Pacific Division road trip, scoring a grand total of 1 goal in 3 games, and then potentially losing Henrik Sedin, David Booth and Mike Santorelli to injuries, I bet the Canucks can’t wait to get back home. Such horrible. Very pain. So #Canucks. #doge #TGATT — Bruce Ng (@transcendwebs) January 17, 2014Click here to read more.
The Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver Canucks fight for third place in the Pacific Division. (source: nhl.com) Vancouver Canucks (24-13-9) Los Angeles Kings (3-6-1) If the Canucks were hoping for a quick re-do of their horrendous trip to SoCal the other weekend – a weekend in which they lost both games to the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings and outshot by a 98-48 margin – well, they get their wish. This week, the Canucks will embark on a 3 games in 4 nights road trip, starting in Los Angeles tonight and Anaheim tomorrow, before finishing up in the desert...Click here to read more.
Things were looking up for the Vancouver Canucks in SoCal. They scored 2 early goals, and on the powerplay, no less. They were up 3-2 late in the third period. Eddie Lack was solid too, thwarting the Anaheim Ducks as the Ducks dominated the Canucks in the last 45 minutes of the game. But then Kevin Bieksa took over. He did give the Canucks that 3-2 lead just a minute into the third period, but he was also on the ice for all 3 Ducks goals, and was directly at fault for the first one and maybe even the late,...Click here to read more.
The start of a new year is often time for reflection and resolution. We make promises and renew commitments to our health, our finances, our hobbies, and our time and attention to loved ones. The writers at CHB have come up with some resolutions of their own, and they are all of the Canucks-variety. Some have to do with players, others with fans, and still others have to do with personal attitudes. You’ll even see that some have similar themes. Regardless, we agreed that it was certainly time for a change – not necessarily for the team – but for...Click here to read more.
It’s that time of year again: time for our 4th annual Canucks Christmas Carol! Our song this year is inspired by Wham!’s “Last Christmas”. We lament the lockout of last Christmas and look at the most important elements of this year’s team: Roberto Luongo, Ryan Kesler, the Sedins, and head coach John Tortorella. This year I’m joined by Marie Hui, Arielle Tuliao, Joseph San Jose, Pat Guevara, Pat Teodosio, and our favourite foreign exchange student Kevin who somehow always finds his way to my place just in time to be in these videos. In fact, both Joseph and Kevin have...Click here to read more.
As far as rivalry matches go, you couldn’t ask for much more. Roberto Luongo was great. Tuukka Rask wasn’t. Ryan Kesler, Chris Higgins and Mike Santorelli were in beast mode. Milan Lucic wasn’t. The Sedins didn’t back down. Brad Marchand was being a dick. As usual. David Booth scored on a helluva snipe of a shot. Chris Tanev scored. Shorthanded, no less. But most importantly, in the Boston Bruins’ first visit to Rogers Arena since Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, the Canucks won. And won in convincing fashion. I'm just going to close my eyes & pretend...Click here to read more.
A “Battle of the Bros” takes place tonight at Rogers Arena with the Carolina Hurricanes gusting into town. ‘Canes captain, Eric Staal, and his brother, Jordan Staal, are here to take on our Sedin twins. This is the second and final meeting between the Canucks and the Canes this season. They met a little over a week ago with the Canucks winning 3-2 in Raleigh and kick-starting their 4-game win streak. Since that loss, however, the Hurricanes have won 3 straight games themselves, including an impressive win on Friday night win against the San Jose Sharks. In that game, they...Click here to read more.
Vancouver Canucks (13-9-5) New York Rangers (13-13-0) The Vancouver Canucks and New York Rangers meet for the first of two meetings this season. It’s been 2 years since these two teams faced each other; the Rangers won at Rogers Arena back in October 2011 by a 4-0 score. After losing 6 of their first 8 games, the Rangers have started to turn things around. They’ve won 3 out of their last 5 games, and 9 of their last 15. Meanwhile, the Canucks have only won 2 out of their last 5 games, though they did beat the Ottawa Senators convincingly...Click here to read more.
Looking to get back on the good side of the Hockey Gods, the Vancouver Canucks take on the Ottawa Senators tonight at the Canadian Tire Centre (formerly Scotiabank Place). The first of a 4-game road trip, the Canucks are looking to correct their offense, which has been downright offensive during their current slump. The Senators won a hard-fought game against the Washington Capitals last night, rallying back from an early 2-goal deficit to win 6-4. The tired Senators have only won 4 of 12 home games this season so home-ice advantage may not be as much of an advantage, especially...Click here to read more.
