  This may have been the only goal but Colorado threw the entire kitchen sink at Cory Schneider.  Schneider responded in a big way.  We will get into that in a bit about goalie controversies and the such.  Last night had a little of everything as we finally got down to nine teams in each conference having a "realistic" shot at a playoff berth.  That just means more spoilers which also means more fantasy intensity in the final days.  When you get into this time of year, it just comes down to two factors.  The big one is luck actually because one can put all the pieces in place but the players have to perform.  The other aspect is scheduling.  If you strategize right and take advantage of the schedule, one can draw moves out of their opponent that usually backfire.  With the schedule condensing, timing is essential.  Now, it is time to reveal our Fantasy POTN and it is not Ryan Callahan. =============================================== FANTASY POTN: Cory Sc...

Hoping to get Daniel Sedin back for the Playoffs

The Vancouver Canucks are hopeful left wing Daniel Sedin will be ready for the 1st round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Second Star of the week for me! The Canucks Goaltending Remember my goaltending rant in this column a few weeks ago? Me either.

Each had a shutout in tough 1-0 wins, and Luongo stopped 38 shots in a 3-2 win against Colorado...

Is it just me or are the Vancouver Canucks winning but still not getting any credit?

He's the only one to beat them in three tries. Bah humbug to all you bandwagoners. Shame on you.

This should do the trick: Vancouver Canucks unveil anti-rioting video
