(source: nhl.com) Vancouver Canucks (11-7-3) Dallas Stars (10-7-2) The Vancouver Canucks are looking to end their 3-game winless streak (0-2-1) tonight against the Dallas Stars. The Stars are 2-1-0 in their last 3 games, and also have won their last 5 games away from American Airlines Center. This is the first of three meetings between the Canucks and Stars. The Stars won their most recent meeting by a 5-1 score back on April 18th, 2013. Who’s Back Jannik Hansen is expected to return to the Canucks line up after missing 10 games with a shoulder injury. At practice on Saturday,...Click here to read more.

So, so close. 65 more seconds and the narratives today would have had a markedly different tone. After beating their playoff nemesis in consecutive games, the Vancouver Canucks would’ve been touted as playoff contenders. Roberto Luongo would’ve had his 3rd shutout of the season, and perhaps start shutting up some of his critics. (Or not. Who’re we kidding here?) But alas, after controlling much of the game, the Canucks couldn’t finish on all but one of their scoring chances, gave up the tying goal with 65 seconds left in regulation time, took a penalty in OT, and then dropped a...Click here to read more.
Last night’s game between the Vancouver Canucks and the New York Islanders was an eventful, see-saw game; both teams took turns taking the lead, and then blowing it, before the Canucks eventually between the Islanders 5-4 in overtime. David Booth was a scratch – in favor of Andrew Alberts, who played 1 shift and 37 seconds in the first 2 minutes of the game, no less. Ryan Kesler was elbowed in the head, though he didn’t miss a shift. Jannik Hansen was hurt, and missed the latter half of the game. And Kevin Bieksa – yes, Kevin Bieksa – continued...Click here to read more.
Ahhh… the playoffs. White towels galore, Roberto Luongo in net, and U2’s “Where the Streets Have No Name” blaring as the Canucks skate on the ice. Let the towels reign supreme!!! U2 is back on the entrance baby LUUUUUUUU! #TGATT ITS PLAYOFFS BABY WOOOO! #Canucks — Glen Thayer (@glenthayer) May 2, 2013 Lu was great too. It’s just too bad the rest of the team weren’t.

Photo credit: CBC.ca In their last regular season game, which Canucks team will we see? Your guess is as good as mine. Going into the playoffs, I know we’d all love to see a complete effort like they put together against the Chicago Blackhawks a couple of games ago. Certainly, we’d like to forget the uninspired performance against the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday. But tonight, against the golf course-bound Edmonton Oilers in a game that means nothing, the Canucks simply want to get out of the regular season (mostly) intact and healthy, and are resting some key players. Daniel Sedin,...Click here to read more.
Ryan Kesler didn’t mince any words after the Canucks blew two, third period leads to the last place Colorado Avalanche yesterday. “We played like shit for 40 minutes,” he said. “We gave them everything they got with turnovers and miscommunication and not getting the puck out. It was shit,” he added. Just about sums it up perfectly. "The Switch" was off today apparently. #Canucks #Tgatt — G.

It really was an entertaining game. A 4-0 win against a streaking divisional rival, some big plays, big goals… and a return visit by the most exciting player to ever put on a Canucks jersey, Pavel Bure. Here’s the game in your tweets.Click here to read more.
It wasn’t exactly a masterpiece, but the Canucks won their 5th consecutive game last night, beating the Columbus Blue Jackets 1-0 in the shootout.

I look at the good, the bad, and the interesting from the Vancouver Canucks’ 7-4 victory over the Nashville Predators at Rogers Arena. I doubt that anyone predicted 11 total goals in this contest between two teams that have had difficulty scoring this season. The fans were treated to a highly entertaining contest that had a bit of everything: nice goals, fights, defensive breakdowns, and even a penalty shot. I touch on Jannik Hansen, Andrew Ebbett, Mason Raymond, Henrik’s penalty shot, David Booth, Kevin Bieksa’s tough game, our crowded blueline, and a little trip I’m taking. Thus, I’ll be taking...Click here to read more.
Welcome to Dallas, Texas, where everything is bigger. None bigger than Brett Hull’s skate. Tonight, the Stars celebrate Marty Turco. Canucks fans have fond memories of him. Marty Turco. The man who shut out the #canucks three times in one playoff series and still lost. — Dan Murphy (@sportsnetmurph) February 22, 2013 Like this:Like Loading…Click here to read more.
