Stars of Big D:
Vancouver Canucks (8-3-4, 20 pts) @ Dallas Stars (8-7-1, 17 pts)
7:30 PM CT
American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas
The Canucks – 3rd in the West
Goals – 11th, Goals Against – 6th, Power Play – 10th, Penalty Kill – 21st
Vancouver has been in a slight tailspin since that last Stars game in which Dallas shockingly came back to win. The Canucks lost their next two games and are on a season high three game losing streak.
Both Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider have had their difficulties and the defense has collapsed around them. Vancouver has lost all three of their games by the exact same 4-3 score (though the last two were in a shootout).
Vancouver will definitely be looking for some revenge tonight and as usual it’ll start with the Sedins. Daniel has a three game point streak and points in six of the last seven games while Henrik is on a three game multi-point streak. The twins have really ramped up their games despite the losing streak.

FRISCO, Texas -- Loui Eriksson definitely knows it goes with the territory. As a goal scorer, sometimes it seems as if the opposing net is so wide open one could drive a Mack truck through the crease while there are other times where nothing a goal scorer does seems to result in the biscuit hitting the back of the basket.
Well, the veteran Stars forward is definitely experiencing...

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.
Brad Ziemer, Vancouver Sun --- Through 129 AHL and 286 NHL games, the Vancouver Canucks winger liked to think he had earned a reputation as...
The Chicago Blackhawks won (again) Tuesday night, this time against the Vancouver Canucks, but it wasn’t without seeing one of their best players go down after a scary hit (again).
Vancouver forward Jannik Hansen delivered a high elbow to Chicago’s Marian Hossa in the third period of the Blackhawks’ 4-3 win Tuesday, and it will reportedly earn Hansen a hearing with the NHL...
That had to hurt.
The Vancouver Canucks and Chicago Blackhawks played to an entertaining and hard-fought 4-3 shootout final on Tuesday, but Jannik Hansen’s hit to the head of Marian Hossa was what had fans talking after the latest rivalry instalment.
Early in the third period Hansen found himself behind Hossa battling for a puck overhead when in reaching up for possession he struck...
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...
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...
The post Jannik Hansen Suspended 1 Game appeared first on Committed Indians.
Vancouver Canuck forward Jannik Hansen hit Chicago Blackhawk forward Marian Hossa's in the head with this dirty hit and he needs to be suspended by the National Hockey League for this dirty hit, there is no defending this hit. Like I said in a previous post, this is a clear violation of the NHL’s rule 48. Vancouver Canuck forward Jannik Hansen needs to be suspended for this...
The Chicago Blackhawks - Vancouver Canucks rivalry intensified on Feb. 19th thanks to a controversial hit from Jannik Hansen to the back of Marian Hossa' head. The play, seen below, featured both men trying to grab a puck out of the air, only to have Hansen's elbow collide violently into Hossa's head.
Was the elbow from Hansen intentional? Should the NHL hand out...

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...
