They were still a little rusty looking at times, but last night the Vancouver Canucks looked about as good as they have looked in about a week.
Despite falling behind 35 seconds in on a goal that Iâm sure Cory Schneider would like back, the team competed hard and played as a team. While the win wasnât a...

I’m not even quite sure what I watched when the Canucks took on the Hawks the other night.
The Blackhawks came as advertised and dominated the game to an embarrassing degree. Cory Schneider‘s best game of his career kept the game close but this was a lopsided game.
The ‘Hawks were pushing the puck through the neutral zone with ease and creating odd man rushes every...

Cry me a river, don't do the crime, if you don't want to do the time. This is why people hate/despise the Vancouver Canucks. You're responsible for your actions on the ice.

For the last couple of seasons, Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo has been put under the microscope because of his lack of play. Trade talks have swirled around him over the past fourteen months about whether or not he will be wanted by an NHL club for the price General Manager Mike Gillis wants in return. Luongo has stated...
I am tired of watching the NHL Department of Player Safety go light on players that should be suspended for multiple games, this was a situation, that I believe warranted a 2-3 games suspension. By going light on Jannik Hansen you pretty much guaranteeing he's going to be a marked man in the next game between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Vancouver Canucks.
In summary, there...
Vancouver Canucks forward Zack Kassian is listed as 6’3″ 205, while Dallas Stars rookie forward Antoine Roussel is listed as 5’11″ 170. Roussel skated at Kassian full-speed and had the advantage early on, even knocking Kassian down, but once Kassian got back up he was pissed off and he went to work, just obliterating Roussel. I give Roussel some credit for going after...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Roberto Luongo was sharp when the Vancouver Canucks needed it the most.
Luongo made 23 saves for the shutout and Dale Weise broke a scoreless tie at 9:14 of the third period and the Vancouver Canucks defeated Nashville 1-0 Friday.
The Canucks have won consecutive games on their four-game road trip after losing three straight.
Nashville has lost three of...
DALLAS (AP) -- The Vancouver Canucks used a third-period rally to stop their losing streak.
Jason Garrison and Henrik Sedin scored third-period goals to help the Canucks overcome a 2-1 second-period deficit en route to a 4-3 victory over the Dallas Stars on Thursday.
Alex Burrows and Kevin Bieksa also scored for the Canucks, who ended a three-game losing streak (0-1-2), including...

I expected just a bit more out of last nightâs game at Bridgestone Arena. A 22nd consecutive sellout crowd witnessed a 1-0 loss to the Vancouver Canucks that was, to be kind, not as exciting...
Vancouver comes into Nashville after snapping a 3-game losing streak last night against the Dallas Stars, knocking them off after scoring 2 goals in the third and winning 4-3. The Canucks are a team Nashville is very familiar with, being knocked out of the Western Conference Semi-Finals by them two years ago and had quite a few thrilling battles with them last season taking a 2-1...
Why didn't you warn me?
I'm in New Orleans
I drank something called "The Grenade"
I hugged a Vancouver Canucks fan
I laughed when someone told me Thomas Hickey has more game winning goals than Drew Doughty.
There was a lot of street vomit.

PREVIEW 6:30 AM CST
After having three nights to get over Sunday's disappointing home loss to Calgary, the Dallas Stars (8-7-1) return to American Airlines Center ice tonight to take on the revenge-minded Vancouver Canucks (8-3-4). Last week in Vancouver, the Stars staged a dramatic comeback and stormed back from a 3-1 deficit to skate off with a 4-3 win.

Dale Weise scored the lone goal to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 1-0 win against the Nashville Predators on the road. For Vancouver, they were able to win both of their games in their back-to-back in Dallas and in the Music City. Head coach Alain Vigneault has to be happy about getting four points in two nights.

It’s never a good sign when you out-shoot an opponent 13-3 in the first period and nothing gets past their goaltender. It’s an even worse sign when the balance begins to tip back in the favor of the opposing team as the game stretches along.
While the Predators battled to capitalize on one of their many chances throughout the game, the Canucks...
