Losers of 9 of 10, the Canucks went across the street to BC Place, hoping to get back on the winning track against the Ottawa Senators in the 2014 Heritage Classic. It started off great. There was a lively atmosphere, and even an early 2-0 lead for the good guys, but as has been the refrain the last couple of months, the Canucks blew the lead and ended up on the wrong end of a 4-2 final score. huh, and we thought the Olympic break would help up #TGATT — Jordan Carpanzano (@jordancarp79) March 2, 2014Click here to read more.

(Photo credit: nhl.com) First off, can we talk about Eddie Lack getting the start over Roberto Luongo? Complete lack of respect. Yes, Lack has done well lately, but Luongo is your starting goaltender. He’s shown nothing but class and grace while the team botched their goaltending situation the last couple of years, and he definitely should have played in net today. Honestly, when will Lu get a chance to play in a game like the Heritage Classic again? The game started off great for the Canucks. They took a 2-0 lead in the first 11:27 of the game, and for...Click here to read more.
4-9-2. After losing 4-3 to the Winnipeg Jets last night, allowing Devin Setoguchi to score the game-winning goal with 3 minutes left in the third period, that’s the Canucks’ record in January. 4 wins. 11 losses. And like cherry on top of the whipped cream on top of the fudge on this January crap cake, they also lost Henrik Sedin, Mike Santorelli, Kevin Bieksa and Chris Tanev to long-term injuries. Wake me up when January ends. #Canucks #tgatt — Derek Bolen (@hurrrdurrr) January 31, 2014Click here to read more.
Don’t get me wrong. I think it’s admirable that the Canucks fought back from a 2-goal deficit against the high-powered Pittsburgh Penguins. It’s likewise impressive that they scored 4 consecutive goals, the last 2 within a 17-second span in the third period to take a 2-goal lead of their own. What sucks is that they blew a lead late – again. They allowed the Pens to tie the game late – 2 goals in 16 seconds with a minute left in the third period to be precise – and proceeded to lose 5-4 in the shootout. The Canucks have now...Click here to read more.
Canucks fans will never forget the 2010/2011 season. I mean, it was one of the most successful years in franchise history. And who could forget the dominance and ecstasy that season was or the heartbreak in the way it ended as tonight’s visitors, the Boston Bruins, won the Stanley Cup in Game 7 on our home ice? That Stanley Cup run brought out a gritty rivalry between the Canucks and the Bruins. It brought out a different level of hatred that’s extended even to fans and media from both cities. Because of the NHL’s unbalanced schedule at the time and...Click here to read more.
With his preseason high-stick on Sam Gagner still fresh in mind, Zack Kassian entered last night’s match-up between the Vancouver Canucks and the Edmonton Oilers as public enemy number one. Threats of retribution followed immediately after that incident back in September, and for his part, Kass was ready regardless of whatever the Oilers threw his way. Except the Oilers didn’t throw much of anything the Canucks’ way last night. The Canucks were as dominant as the Oilers were soft. Roberto Luongo recorded his 3rd shutout of the season, Jason Garrison had 3 assists, and hell, Dale Weise scored a powerplay...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.
(source: sports.yahoo.com) Vancouver Canucks (16-10-5) Colorado Avalanche (20-7-0) As the Colorado Avalanche close out their 3-game road trip against the Vancouver Canucks in Vancouver, the Canucks will play game 2 of their 5-game home stand. This is the first of three meetings between the two teams. With 3 consecutive wins, the Canucks have gained some ground in the Western Conference standings. They beat the Phoenix Coyotes on Friday to tie them with the 8th most points in the conference (though the Coyotes do have 2 games in hand), and are just 2 points back of the Minnesota Wild, the other...Click here to read more.
Photo credit: faceoff.com After a successful 4-game road trip, in which they went 3-1, the Vancouver Canucks are back at Rogers Arena to take on the Phoenix Coyotes. Both teams played a month ago with the Coyotes winning in the shootout and Antoine Vermette getting the shootout winner. The Canucks, who have won back-to-back games for the first time since the end of October, are looking to maintain some momentum as they start a 5-game home stand. They also hope to not lose any more players to injury as they’ve lost key players the last couple of games. Against the...Click here to read more.
(source: nhl.com) Vancouver Canucks (14-10-5) Nashville Predators (13-11-3) The Vancouver Canucks wrap-up their 4-game road trip tonight against the Nashville Predators. This is the first of 3 meetings between the two teams. Last season, the Canucks won all 3 games against the Predators. With their Sunday morning win against the Carolina Hurricanes, the Canucks have won 2 of the 3 games on the road trip so far, and it would be good to head home for their 5-game homestand on a winning note. On the other hand, the Predators have lost their last 2 games; they were shutout by the...Click here to read more.
