Canucks lose game 1 to the Sharks 3-1.
Raffi on Corrado. SMACK. It was that kind of night.
It started out well, but went downhill fast in the third. The Canucks struck first, but gave up three straight goals in a 3-1 loss Wednesday night in Game 1.
After a scoreless first period in which San Jose outshot Vancouver 15-9, the Canucks got on the board at 12:26 of the second. Dan Boyle snapped a tie at 9:17 of the third period and Patrick Marleau added insurance less than 5 1/2 minutes
Canucks Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin combined for only four shots on goal. Alex Edler led the club with five.

Roberto Luongo will start Game 1 for the Canucks
We just out via Sportsnet Pacific's twitter feed that Roberto Luongo will get the start for the Canucks in game 1 vs. the Sharks.
He said "It was good for me to get a couple starts in before the playoffs"
What do you think Vancouver? It appears Schneider isn't ready to return just yet. Schneider, who played...
For The Playoff Gamblers!
The Vancouver Canucks have been waiting for this moment for a long time – the moment that they can start to erase the disappointment that was last year’s first round playoff exit. Their first round opponent this year – the San Jose Sharks, a team that like themselves looked just OK down the stretch and also have more to lose than to gain during the...
After watching goaltender Cory Schneider handle a full practice workload, Vancouver media types assumed he would regain his starting role for the playoffs.
Schneider looked fully recovered from his undisclosed injury. Former starter Roberto Luongo got shelled at the end of the regular season.That was one of the ugliest games of his career.
All this added up to a Game 1 start for...
The Vancouver Canucks Green Men have become staples of the Stanley Cup Playoffs but the announcers for Comcast Sportsnet in San Jose weren’t having any of it. During the broadcast of the Cancuks-Sharks game one, the announcers Drew Remenda and Randy Hahn effectively called the Green Men 40-year-old virgins that live in their moms basement and collect snow globes. It was a...
There are few NHL fans more recognized than the Vancouver Canucks "Green Men" and while they are a joy to watch for many, some people aren't exactly the biggest fans.
During last night's Canucks/Sharks game 1, Sharks announcers Drew Remenda and Randy Hahn decided to mock the duo multiple times during their broadcast:
from Mike Hager of the Vancouver Sun,
On the eve of the Vancouver Canucks first home playoff game, hundreds of below-face-value tickets were still available online and the team was offering lower-bowl seats at half price to its employees and select corporate partners.
The discount code emailed to team and stadium staff offered lower-bowl seats for the first two home games...
Thank the officials for putting away the whistles and letting the Sharks and Canucks take it to each other for the first two periods of play Wednesday night. The first 40 minutes of hockey were thrilling, gritty, physical hockey, and neither team disappointed.
Neither team was able to score in the first period, with the Sharks out-shooting the Canucks 15-9. In the second period,...
The Vancouver Canucks Green Guys decided to up the intensity by performing a magic trick recently. (Badly.) And we wrote, "'A' for effort but...that's enough." -- Last night San Jose CNS announcers...

Drew Remenda and Randy Hahn who handle the San Jose Sharks play-by-play for CNS in the Bay Area had a little fun at the Vancouver green men’s expense during Game 1. During the telecast they dropped a few jokes about how they are grown men ‘living in their parents’ basements’ and of course ‘the 40-year-old virgin’ burn. Pretty funny considering all the green men do...
The San Jose Sharks Martin Havlat is injured and while the details of the injury haven’t been given, the forward was forced to miss some time and did not return before the second period began.

After having a day of to lick their wounds and discuss as a team that they need to be better, Vancouver gets to try and put it all together tonight and earn a split. Roughly 87 per cent of the time going down two zip means you're done, so this is pretty much a must win game for Vancouver.
Dan Boyle and Patrick Marleau scored in the third period for the San Jose Sharks, who rallied to beat the Vancouver Canucks 3-1 on Wednesday night in the first-round Western Conference series opener.
Boyle and Logan Couture both had a goal and an assist, and Marleau pushed San Jose's lead to 3-1. Antti Niemi made 28 saves for the Sharks, who were outshot 30-28.
Most hockey fans are more than familiar with the madcap antics of the Green Men, the Vancouver Canucks superfans who dress up head-to-toe in skin-tight, green spandex and taunt opponents during their stay in the visitor’s penalty box at Rogers Arena. Their routines usually are met with amusement by NHL fans in general, irritation by opposing NHL players and in one instance played...
The San Jose Sharks have searched for an identity on their journey through this lockout-shortened season.
Meanwhile, the Vancouver Canucks don't know who their goaltender will be Wednesday night when they host Game 1 of this series as Cory Schneider tries to recover from an undisclosed injury in time to make the start.
For the Sharks, there was the high-powered power play that...
Its time for TSN's "Play Of The Year".
Today, Marcus Foligno goes head to head with San Jose's Dan Boyle.
To refresh your memory, the power forward shows finesse and skill as he beats the stingy King Henrik with a deft, between the legs goal from March 12th.
