Performance of the Week: Frank Corrado’s season debut

Performance of the Week could’ve easily been given to former Canuck Roberto Luongo — and he’d no doubt deserve it — but I’ve already written about him — and he’s not really on this team anymore, so there’s also that. I’m giving it to Frank Corrado this week, who was called up for the third time this season for Saturday’s buzzkill snoozefest against the Flames.

New Year, Same Problems – January 12, 2015

Episode 39 of C4 sees Chris join Matt in studio as they take a look at the Canucks’ disappointing start to 2015.  They discuss the poor results from the recent home stand and look at the lack of offense.  They also gave some time to potential targets to trade with and who might be moving from the Canucks.  As well, Chris provides an update on the Canucks #SocialSuite – put on by the Canucks and Save-On-Foods – before losing his mind when reflecting on the Cam Neely trade. Somehow, regular segment “Half Full, Half Empty” becomes “Full Empty” and wait...

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 0 vs. Flames 1

After an emotional game against Roberto Luongo and the Florida Panthers on Thursday night, the Canucks were looking to bounce back against the Calgary Flames on Saturday night, something they seem to do often enough. (I mean, the Flames are like the Canucks’ safety blanket.) Jocelyn Aspa recaps the game in your tweets.

Luongo’s bitter-suite return

It’s hard to prepare yourself for the kind of night Thursday’s Luongo Night was. You know it’s going to be raw and emotional, seeing your former number one goaltender between the pipes at the other end of the rink.

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 1 vs. Panthers 3

It’s the most excited Vancouver fans have ever been to see the Florida Panthers. No, the Panthers didn’t suddenly get good, it’s Mr. Roberto Luongo’s first trip back to Vancity since being traded last year. Lizz Moffat recaps the game in your tweets.

Loving Luongo – January 7, 2015

Episode 38 of C4 is live with Matt and Clay chatting about the Smylosphere topic of the year (so far) – Roberto Luongo’s return to Vancouver. Does Luongo receive cheers from an adoring crowd? Or do “boos” instead of “loos” rain down from the upper bowl? And is either deserved?

What’s the opposite of star treatment?

Curious, I decided to scroll through the boxscores of the last several Canucks games and check how rarely Hank had drawn a penalty. Unless I missed something, I made it all the way back to the Canucks’ November 14 game against the Arizona Coyotes – this was the last time Hank drew a penalty.

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 3 vs. Islanders 2

Coming off a solid win against Detroit, Canucks are looking to continue their winning ways against the New York Islanders. Can starting goalie Eddie Lack redeem himself after last season’s brutal 7-4 loss to the Isles? Victoria Denault recaps the game in your tweets.

Performance of the Week: Henrik Sedin scores milestone goal numbers 200 and 201

It’s no word of a lie when I say that I adore Henrik Sedin more than most people. (I’m also weirdly protective of someone I’ve never even met, but come on, he’s Henrik Sedin, okay?) Seeing him reach milestone goals 200 and 201 on the same night is pretty spectacular.

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 4 vs. Red Wings 1

After their first loss of the calendar year against the Los Angeles Kings on New Year’s Day, the Canucks were look to bounce back against the Detroit Red Wings (although they’ve been winless in their last 3 outings against them). Jocelyn Aspa recaps the game in your tweets.
