With our blog name being Canucks Hockey Blog, we don’t have a horse left in this race. To be honest I didn’t do that great with predictions in round 1. I only had four right. Shout out to our Blogfather JJ who got six right along with Lizz and Caylie. What will happen in Round 2? Who sweep? Who will go 7 games and which CHB blogger will predict it?

There were good times and bad times – and then there were devastating times. If you’re a fan of the the Sens, Wings, Isles, Pens, Preds, Blues, Jets or our dear Canucks, you fall into that last category. There was a lot of variety this round, brawls, sweeps, and an endless game of musical goalies (Crawford-Darling-Crawford. Hammond-Anderson, Lack-Miller) As usual, there was something to cheer or jeer for everyone. From playoff beards to disappearing pucks, let’s breakdown the best and worst from the first round of the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Biggest Heroes Carey Price He basically stood...Click here to read more.
The Vancouver Canucks are back in the NHL playoffs and thus we are thrilled to present our Canucks Playoff Anthem: Something Big. It’s based on the original song by Shawn Mendes. I’m joined by my regular collaboration partners: the wonderful and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao. They never cease to amaze me with their skills…in this video check out how they harmonize effortlessly while doing syncopated clapping…it’s NUTS! We’re excited about a deep playoff run for the Canucks. Something big is happening! Go Canucks Go! Go! Go Canucks Go! Go! Go Canucks Go!Play for the Cup you might win...Click here to read more.
With the Edmonton Oilers’ surprise victory over the Los Angeles Kings last night, the Vancouver Canucks clinched a playoff berth and return to the post-season after a brief one-year absence. Prior to last season, the last time the Canucks missed the playoffs was the 2007-2008 season. The Canucks have surprised just about everyone with their performance this year as they have a good chance of finishing second in the Pacific Division. I was quietly confident from the beginning of the season that they would return to the playoffs. My C4 podcast co-hosts Chris and Matt didn’t share my optimism so...Click here to read more.
We were set to record our latest episode of our C4 podcast last night so per usual I sent the word out via my @CanuckClay Twitter account that I was looking for Canucks haiku. And in particular, I wanted people to try to encapsulate their feelings on the Canucks as they enter into the final two weeks of the regular season. As always, the people responded, and I had a plethora of good 17-syllable creations ready for the podcast. Unfortunately, we encountered some unforeseeable technical difficulties (and really…when are technical difficulties ever foreseen???) and thus the podcast we recorded (or...Click here to read more.
I continued my trend of baking things to show my level of hockey nerd last night and made Hanky a cake to celebrate his Art Ross trophy and his Hart trophy nomination. There’s something calming and meditative about dyeing icing blue and green. Then, I stumbled upon a calendar this morning while looking something else up and realized that today is my one year anniversary writing here. Plus it’s game day! So really this cake can celebrate a whole trio of things.Click here to read more.
– So our very own lovely Hank Sedin was the first player to get to 100 points. Wow! I was chatting on twitter and mentioned that I would bake Hank 100 cuppycakes when he reached 100 points. It was mostly a joke and I figured it would take him a little longer to do so but hey a declaration on twitter is fairly binding. So, this holiday weekend I will be making a big pile of cuppycakes with Swedish flags and Canucks colours. Maybe even Swedish fish. Look for a post documenting the deliciousness. – Mr. Hanky has also been...Click here to read more.
