The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 2 vs. Senators 4

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, 2014

About Last Night: Different Venue, Same Result

(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...

Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Senators: The Heritage Classic

(Photo credit: nhl.com) Ottawa Senators (26-23-11) at Vancouver Canucks (28-24-10) The Vancouver Canucks will take on the Ottawa Senators at BC Place for the 2014 Heritage Classic. And wouldn’t you know it, it’s snowing as we speak in downtown Vancouver. Cold Snap Just as cold as the weather outside is the Canucks’ offence. They’ve scored a grand total of 6 goals in their last 6 games, and not surprisingly, they’ve lost all but 1 of them. The Sedins, though they’ve been playing a bit better since the Olympic break, haven’t scored in 2013. Alex Burrows hasn’t scored since the 2012/2013...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 5 at Senators 2

It looked like a road trip away from Rogers Arena was just what the Vancouver Canucks needed. Against the Ottawa Senators last night, the Canucks, playing their first of 4 games on the road, won convincingly by a 5-2 score. But it wasn’t just the final score that was impressive. David Booth played perhaps his best game in two years, and had a goal and an assist. Jason Garrison scored his first goal in 25 games. Dale Weise and Mike Santorelli both scored greasy goals from in front of the net. And Roberto Luongo made 37 saves. The #nhl should've...

Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Senators: If You’re Happy and You Know It Score A Goal

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...

2013/2014 NHL Season Preview: Atlantic Division 0

2013/2014 NHL Season Preview: Atlantic Division

On the eve of the start of the 2013/2014 NHL regular season, I preview the 30 teams, one division at a time. Photo credit: Sportsnet Boston Bruins The Good It’s scary to think, but the Bruins, which made the Stanley Cup Finals last year, may have added some more pop to their offense. Not only is their core is largely intact, with David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron coming off healthy seasons, but the B’s also replaced the injury-prone, Nathan Horton, with 25+ goals winger, Loui Eriksson, and 41-year old Jaromir Jagr with a slightly-younger but extremely-motivated Jarome Iginla. The Bad...

NHL Second Round Playoffs Prediction Post 6

NHL Second Round Playoffs Prediction Post

With the first round of the 2013 NHL playoffs behind us, it’s time to talk about more important things, like who’s leading the CHB playoffs prediction pool – that would be the Victoria, who correctly predicted 5 of the series winners. Here are our round two picks: Western Conference (1) Chicago Blackhawks vs. (7) Detroit Red Wings Clay: Chicago in 6. The Blackhawks have too much firepower and their forwards will overwhelm the Red Wings’ defence. Chicago may come out a bit rusty (given the 6 days between games) but they will shake it off quickly. Victoria: Chicago in 7....
