Keys to the Canucks 2011/2012 Season: Manny Malhotra

Photo credit: Globe and Mail In the 20+ years I’ve been watching NHL hockey, I’ve hardly remembered a time when the balance of power has shifted as often and as sharply as it has in recent years. While there are constants like the Detroit Red Wings who seem to be in contention every year with their roster of ageless superstars and the San Jose Sharks who seem to be in the running every year in the regular season but run into a road block in the playoffs, teams usually don’t stay where they are very long. Look at the predicted...

He Said, She Said: More Manny, More Bally, Less Rome

[About the game from two viewpoints. Chris and Caylie watch the game and exchange their thoughts via email.] From: Christopher Golden To: Caylie King Date: Sat, 04 Jun 2011 17:07 Hey Caylie, So here we have Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final. Apparently a must win. I’m not exactly sure why winning the first game at home in the final makes Game 2 a must win, but apparently that’s what people allegedly wiser than I seem to think. C. From: Caylie King To: Christopher Golden Date: Wed, 01 Jun 2011 17:21 Hi Chris, I’m not sure if it is...

[Inspired by Arsenio Hall's "Things That Make You Go Hmmm…", Clayton Imoo talks about Canucks-related things that make him go hmmm… You can follow Clay on Twitter at (@canuckclay) or on his website, Clay's Canucks Commentary.] Game 1 was quite entertaining on Wednesday night, especially in the third period after the penalty parade of the first two periods had ended.  It was a marvelous display of outstanding goaltending, as I predicted in my last blog. For this blog, I’ll take a quick look back at game 1, I’ll take a quick look ahead at game 2, and I’ll pose a...

Health Comes First

Photo credit: CBC.ca Canucks fans have been on a rollercoaster lately when it comes to third line center Manny Malhotra. After a devastating freak accident where a puck deflected up into Malhotra’s eye ended his season, Canucks fans breathed a sigh of relief when we heard he would be okay, the surgeries were successful and there was a good chance he would return next season. Manny’s return to practice raised a few eyebrows but none of us realistically expected a man who nearly lost his vision to be back in time for the playoffs. Then we saw him in full...

Vancouver Canucks’ Top 10 Clutch Goals This Season

There are pretty goals, like Daniel’s between-the-legs shot against Calgary last year in a mean-nothing, final-game-of-the season blowout. Then there are the clutch goals: the shorthanded breakaway, the rush up ice in the dying minutes, the rebound bashed home from your knees with the goalie pulled and seconds left. In chronological order, here’s the 10 clutch goals that made you roar in relief and jubliation this season. Manny Malhotra vs Detroit Red Wings on November 6 Killing a late second-period penalty in a tied game, Malhotra strips Datsyuk at the blue line and goes in alone. Ryan Kesler vs Anaheim...
