MY PREDICTION: Canucks 5, Canadiens 3
BEST OF MAXIM
The Canucks may have been beaten up by the Habs last night, but Zack Kassian did make his fighting debut in an impressive effort, standing up for his team midway through the second period. Check out Kassian's decent debut with his fists here.
For some reasons, kids these days are showing off their
sweet dances moves more than ever at sporting events around the world.
Back on Tuesday, this little Vancouver Canucks fan named Jack Millos was
caught on the Rogers Centre Jumbotron during the Canucks loss to the Dallas
Stars showing off his moves for the fans in the stands.
Watch as he breaks it...
On Wednesday, we regaled you with the amusing story of a young Vancouver Canucks fan who delighted anyone who watched the video courtesy of some pretty fly dance moves he demonstrated to LMFAO’s “I’m Sexy and I Know It” at a recent Canucks game. But there was, thankfully, much more to the story. The video [...]
I can say from first-hand experience that retail sales is a tough gig. Convincing people to sell products sucks. Yet the Canucks and Manny Malhotra decided to have some fun with the experience at Sport Check, setting up Manny as "Alex" the salesmen for some unsuspecting fans. Check it out here via Canucks.com.
from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province, Perhaps now the Vancouver Canucks are disintegrating before their eyes, those so utterly determined to make excuses for these guys will give it a rest.
When you lose to the worst team in the Eastern Conference in your own rink in the middle of a homestand and get the crap kicked out of your alleged stars in the bargain, it doesn’t...
WTF was that?
The Vancouver Canucks jumped out to an early lead but were blasted by the Canadiens on Saturday in a 4-1 loss at Rogers Arena. Carey Price kept the Habs in the game during a busy first period allowing Blake Geoffrion to respond in the second, deflecting his first as a Canadien past Roberto Luongo.
The Hat Trick
Ryan Kesler had another strong game from Vancouver’s...
The Vancouver Canucks may have lost in a tough regulation loss to the Habs last night, but over the years these two teams have created a number of interesting images for fans to enjoy. Check out the gallery at The Province.

The dog days of March are here. The Vancouver Canucks have nothing left to play for in a division long since wrapped up, and the prospect of another long, punishing playoff run as seen the effort levels lately drop to a more manageable peak.
It’s a tad disappointing to see these losses, but who will really remember these games once the playoffs start?

from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, In the last stretch of Blues’ games, a few of the NHL’s top players have failed to muster a shot on goal. Chicago’s Marian Hossa, San Jose’s Joe Thornton and Vancouver’s Henrik Sedin came up empty, while twin brother Daniel Sedin of the Canucks directed one puck toward the net.
Blues coach Ken Hitchcock believes the...
The Vancouver Canucks got back on the winning track their last time out, picking up a much-needed two points as they continue their quest for the Western Conference's top seed.
While the Montreal Canadiens have little chance to climb into the East playoff picture, they're coming off a rare impressive effort of their own.
