Week One of the NHL in Pictures

There were a lot of things that changed from the last week of the 2013-2014 NHL season to the first week of the 2014-2015 season. And there was a lot that didn’t. Here’s a before-and-after breakdown in pictures.

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 1 at Leafs 3

I supposed all good things eventually had to come to an end. Before last night’s game, the Canucks had won 11 consecutive games against the Toronto Maple Leafs, dating back to November 2003. So much for that. But you know what’s still going? The Canucks’ losing streak. This two-week Olympic break couldn’t come soon enough. Thank god for #Sochi2014 – I’m kinda looking forward to cheering for another team guilt-free. #Canucks #TGATT — Roxy (@RmystiQue78) February 8, 2014 Like this:Like Loading…

Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Maple Leafs: Please Please Please Beat The Leafs

(Photo Credit: canucks.nhl.com) Vancouver Canucks (27-23-9) at Toronto Maple Leafs (31-22-6) First, the good. When the Vancouver Canucks face the Toronto Maple Leafs this afternoon, they’ll be going for their 12th straight victory against the team from the center of the universe; the Leafs haven’t beaten the Canucks since November 2003. In their last meeting earlier this season, the Canucks blanked Toronto 4-0 as Roberto Luongo stopped all 21 shots he faced. That night was also the night the Canucks retired Pavel Bure’s jersey and raised it up to the rafters. However, now may be as good a time as...

TGATT - The Game According to Twitter 1

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 4 vs. Leafs 0

Fittingly, on the night the Vancouver Canucks retired Pavel Bure’s number up to the rafters, they played perhaps their most exciting, most entertaining game of the season. On a typical Saturday Fall afternoon in Vancouver, the Canucks took on the Leafs and slugged it out with them. All four lines scored and Roberto Luongo recorded his 64th shutout – yes, his 64th shutout, just 2 shutouts behind Patrick Roy, who had 66 shutouts in 269 more games, in the NHL’s all-time shutout leaders list – en route to a 4-0 dismantling of the Eastern Conference-leading Leafs. Theory that bure was...

Game Day Preview Canucks vs. Leafs: Pavel Bure Night, and Sedins vs Centre of the Universe

(Photo credit: National Post) Vancouver Canucks (9-5-1) Toronto Maple Leafs (10-4-0) On Pavel Bure night tonight, the Vancouver Canucks will attempt to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs for the 11th straight meeting. Meanwhile, the Leafs will attempt to complete a 3-game sweep as they close out their Western Conference road trip. Because of the lockout last season, the two teams haven’t met since February 2012. In that game, the Sedins and Alex Burrows combined for 10 points (3 goals and 7 assists) as the Canucks won handily, by a 6-2 score. The Leafs are definitely improved since that 2012 meeting....

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 First Round Playoffs Prediction Post

If any team can pull off a come-from-behind and out-of-nowhere unexpected victory or 7, it’s Detroit. And as the Capitals have proven time and time again, if any team can perform an epic playoff meltdown, it’s a team coached by Bruce Boudreau.

Belated Trade Deadline Thoughts: On Not Trading Luongo and Not Going “All-In” 2

Belated Trade Deadline Thoughts: On Not Trading Luongo and Not Going “All-In”

I don’t think Roberto Luongo is “unwanted”. If you believe GM Mike Gillis after yesterday’s trade deadline, it appears 5 teams were interested in Lu’s services. And if you think about it, the fact that he didn’t trade the star netminder says that he’d much rather have him in his lineup – as a backup and a security blanket – than trade him for a second round draft pick.

Out of Town Notebook: 2012/2013 Eastern Conference Preview

Another year, another season preview. As usual, we’ve ranked each team’s goaltending, defense, forwards and coaches based on expectations and past performance. However, given the shortened season, we’ve also taken a few other things into consideration.

Now that teams are allowed up to 2 compliance buyouts over the next two off-seasons, and the buyout amounts not counting towards the salary cap, it may very well be creating some additional suitors for Luongo’s services.
