Uh-oh 4

Uh-oh

I’m trying to look for a silver lining in the Canucks’ 3-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets last night. I’d like to say that they at least outplayed the Jackets, only to be outplayed by rookie goaltender Steve Mason. Or that they’ve bounced back after back-to-back losses to the Calgary Flames. I can’t. The Canucks weren’t good. Well, maybe they were in the third period, but they still squandered a 2-1 lead with only 11 minutes left in the game. The powerplay connected twice – which matched their total from the last week and a half – but the...

Flame out

The Vancouver Canucks lost both games of a home-and-home series against the Calgary Flames. It was ugly in a sense that the Flames – and the Minnesota Wild – are now a single point behind our division-leading ‘Nucks, but also, the more offensive style of hockey we watched the first 22 games disappeared sometime between the first and second periods of Thursday night’s game. The Canucks were outchanced and outshot in both games, though truth be told, this isn’t anything new. (They have now been outshot in 15 of their first 24 games.) On Thursday, what was noticeable was how...

The Sanford and Schneider show

We should find out the results of Roberto Luongo’s MRI after the Monday morning skate (TSN), so until then, we’ll be sitting on pins and needles. Of course, the hope is that the injury is relatively-minor – i.e. that he didn’t tear anything – and that he could be back on the ice in a couple of weeks or so. Just for fun, here are the number of games Lui would miss depending on how long he’s out for: 1 week: 3 games (2 home, 1 away) 2 weeks: 7 games (2 home, 5 away) 4 weeks: 12 games (5...
