Photo Courtesy: NHL.com The Vancouver Canucks start their longest road trip of the season when hosted by the Philadelphia Flyers Tuesday afternoon at 4pm PST. Canucks fans will be amped up to see the Canucks play a collection of Eastern teams that we do not often see. The Flyers, in particular, are always an interesting bunch both on and off the ice. Last Game The Canucks lost 4-1 to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night. The game was marked by the most ridiculous own goal in Canuck history and stellar, albeit lucky, goaltending by the Canadiens Carey Price. The Canucks carried the play for large stretches, but were unable to take advantage of Price’s consistent over aggressive play. Price was caught out of position multiple times, but the Canucks could not capitalize. The Canadiens, conversely, were able to score without having to shoot the puck. The Opponent The Philadelphia Flyers have quite possibly had one of the worst starts to their season imaginable. The Flyers fired the...

Price is on his game

Carey Price ambled out of the Laval-sur-le-Lac clubhouse a month and a half ago shuffling up onto a riser and into a spotlight in which he lives his professional life. “Everybody is really excited to get this year going. I don’t think anybody feels added pressure at all” Price said before the start of his team’s annual charity golf tournament. The excited part was a given...

Peter Tessier: Jets Airfare- Too Pricey

It's hard to understand how a team can win 3-0 two nights earlier and then come back and lose 3-0 with a polar opposite effort. It was an ugly start and never really got much prettier as Carey Price led his team to a blanking of the under-powered and ill-prepared Jets. There's no dynamic way to break down the game tonight. Put to the most basic and simple analysis not...

Eric Engels: Price delivers in Vancouver, Briere on the 4th line vs. Winnipeg

A masterful, 39-save performance by Carey Price was central to the Canadiens biggest win of the season, thus far. Bonus for Price that it came in front of friends and family in Vancouver. Goals from Max Pacioretty, Tomas Plekanec and Josh Gorges put this one out of reach with Price standing on his head, but it was a second period mistake by Dan Hamhuis that killed the Canucks...

Did Canucks give up strangest own-goal in NHL history? (Video)

The Vancouver Canucks gave up what may be the strangest shorthanded own-goal in NHL history during the second period of Saturday night's game against the Montreal Canadiens. Everything seemed normal as Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo played the puck behind the net and passed it to defenseman Jason Garrison, who gave it to fellow defenseman Dan Hamhuis. However, things...

Bizarre own goal proves turning point in Canadiens 4-1 pasting of Canucks

Dan Hamhuis needed to play brilliantly the first few months of this season to have any chance at playing for Team Canada in Sochi. The pressure is now off. He’s falling short. So are the Canucks who followed a 4-1 whipping at the hands of the Sharks by fading on Hockey Night in Canada Saturday. The Canucks may have driven play against the Montreal Canadiens and dominated puck...

Jocelyn Robitaille: ... garder Carey Price?

Très drôle de vous voir réagir suite à mon dernier blog. On ne peut même pas ouvrir une discussion sur la possibilité d'échanger Carey Price sans se faire passer dans le broyeur. Je comprends, vous êtes passionnés, tout comme moi. Comme disent les anglais: It's all good! Mon interrogation était faite dans le but d'améliorer l'...

Price, Canadiens shut out Jets

Carey Price made 36 saves and the Montreal Canadiens extended their winning streak to three games with a 3-0 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday. It was Price's first shutout of the season and 20th of his career. Ondrej Pavelec faced 24 shots for the Jets (3-4-0). Brandon Prust, P.K. Subban and Daniel Briere, with an empty netter on the power play, scored for Montreal...

Habs' Price shuts out Jets 3-0 in Manitoba

Brandon Prust and P.K. Subban scored first-period goals and Daniel Brière added an empty-netter while Carey Price did the rest as the Canadiens defeated the Winnipeg Jets 3-0 Tuesday night at the MTS Centre. It was the third consecutive win for the Canadiens who finished their Western Canada road trip with a 3-1 record. More bad news for Pacioretty: Max Pacioretty has experienced...

Jocelyn Robitaille: Échanger Carey Price?

Wayne Gretzky a été échangé. Bon, maintenant que j'ai l'argument ultime contre tous ceux qui me diront que je suis fou après avoir lû mon titre, on peut en jaser non? Les Canadiens de Montréal ont une histoire riche en ce qui a trait à ses gardiens de buts, c'est un peu sa marque de commerce si on veut. George Vézina, George Hainsworth, Bill...

Vancouver Canucks Score Bizarre Goal On Themselves

I’m with the announcer. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a hockey goal scored like this. The Vancouver Canucks scored on themselves after Dan Hamhuis lost the puck behind his own net.  The puck bounced off both skates of goalie Roberto Luongo and slowly crawled across the goal line. I’m not sure if this beats Jonathan Quick’s blunder for Worst Goal of the Year but it’s definitely...

Blue Jackets-Canadiens Preview

The Columbus Blue Jackets have had little issue creating scoring chances. Their problem has been capitalizing on those opportunities. Facing the Montreal Canadiens - with Carey Price likely in net - might not help. Columbus visits Montreal on Thursday night for the teams' first meeting as Eastern Conference foes. The Blue Jackets (2-3-0) scored one goal apiece in their last...

Canucks Make Case for Worst Goal of Season, Score Shorthanded Tally on Themselves (Video)

Allowing a shorthanded goal is deflating enough for a team, but the Canucks really upped the ante on the momentum-killer on Saturday night. Late in the second period with the game knotted up at 1-1, Vancouver went on the man-advantage when Montreal’s Jared Tinordi was sent to the box after an interference call. About 30 seconds into the power play, Lars Eller cleared the puck...
