Today I Read: About Ference, Foolishness, and Fancy Stats

The NHL suspended Edmonton Oilers captain, Andrew Ference, for 3 games following his headshot on Zack Kassian. On its own, that probably sounds fair. But as Kerry Fraser notes, this isn’t Ference’s first run-in with NHL DoPS. In fact, he’s been suspended twice recently for dangerous hits – in other words, he’s exactly the league’s definition of a repeat offender.

Things That Make You Go Hmmm: Extrapolation Edition

After 6 games, Kevin Bieksa and Shawn Matthias are -6 and Jannik Hansen is -5. At this rate, the math suggests – even if logic does not – that Bieksa and Matthias will finish at -60 and Hansen -50. This obviously won’t happen. At least it better not.

Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Oilers: Keeping the Momentum Going

(canucks.nhl.com) Vancouver Canucks (27-17-9) Edmonton Oilers (16-32-6) For the fourth time this season, and the second time in just six days, the Vancouver Canucks take on the Edmonton Oilers. The Canucks won all three previous games (6-2, 4-0 and most recently, 2-1). After Sunday’s 5-4 overtime win for the Canucks, they’re looking to keep the momentum going and start a new winning steak. However, the Oilers are looking to start a new winning streak of their own. On Sunday, the Oilers ended a six-game winless streak as they beat the Nashville Predators 5-1. Who’s Hot As we all know, the...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 5 vs. Coyotes 4 (OT)

The Canucks scored 5 goals last night. 8 if you count the ones they scored in their own net. But hey, at least the Canucks won, and in doing so, they extended their lead on the Phoenix Coyotes for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference to 5 points. We scored AND we won! Damn, I could get used to this. #Canucks #TGATT — Roxy (@RmystiQue78) January 26, 2014 Like this:Like Loading…

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 0 at Kings 1

To call last night’s 1-0 loss by the Canucks to the Los Angeles Kings a wild affair may be an understatement. With Dustin Brown’s ninja kick to Roberto Luongo’s head still fresh in their minds, the Canucks went after him. First, Zack Kassian did just 9 seconds into the game. Then, Ryan Kesler dropped the gloves against 6 seconds into the second period. As usual, Jordan Nolan was being a rat, charging at a Sedin again, like he did the last time these two teams met. On the very next shift, Tom Sestito had enough and took matters into his...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 3 at Ducks 4 (OT)

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,...

CHB Countdown: Top 5 Kevin Bieksa Moments

Typically, 5th round picks become forgotten players who either provide depth for the minor league club or fizzle out and turn to other professions. Kevin Bieksa refused this notion fighting his way onto the Canucks via a mix of hard work, toughness and skill. Since his inaugural season with the Canucks in 2005, Bieksa has been a mainstay. But while his role on the team has changed over the years, his value has remained static. Bieksa is a leader both on and off the ice serving as one of the assistant captains and as one of the more colorful personalities...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 2 at Rangers 5

Before this morning’s matinee matchup between the Vancouver Canucks and the New York Rangers, much of the storyline revolved around coach John Tortorella’s return to Madison Square Garden for the first time since being fired in May. And when asked whether or not he’d be visiting some old Rangers, he said, “I’m going to coach this game, hopefully kick their ass and get outta here.” Well, a Chris Kreider hat trick, a 35-save performance by rookie goaltender, Cam Talbot, and a 5-2 Rangers win later, Torts did coach and the Canucks are off to Carolina now 1-1 on this 4-game...
