You would think Alexandre Burrows would have his biting technique down by now. The Vancouver Canucks forward — most famous around Boston for chomping down on Patrice Bergeron’s finger during the 2011 Stanley Cup Final — apparently still has some work to do in that department. The Canucks’ official Twitter account posted a photo early Thursday morning of Burrows with a chipped front tooth — not an uncommon injury for hockey players. The chip wasn’t the result of a stick, puck or fist to the face, though. Nope, the cause of Burrows’ now-crooked smile was the dreaded granola bar. Check it out in the photo below, with a stick tap to The Score. Wasn't a stick, wasn't a puck. It was a granola bar. Still, all smiles for Burr. http://t.co/FHZpr3shXj— Vancouver Canucks (@VanCanucks) March 27, 2014Filed under: Top Stories, Vancouver Canucks

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- David Booth scored two unassisted goals and Eddie Lack made 29 saves to lead the Vancouver Canucks over the Minnesota Wild 5-2 on Wednesday night.
Zack Kassian, Daniel Sedin and Ryan Kesler also scored for Vancouver as the Canucks try to make a late push to overtake Phoenix and Dallas for the Western Conference's final wild-card playoff spot.
The Vancouver Canucks have recalled defenceman Frank Corrado from AHL Utica — a move that suggests veteran defender Kevin Bieksa is questionable for Saturday’s game versus Anaheim after suffering an apparent lower-body injury last night versus Colorado.
When David Booth is scoring goals and Alex Edler is preventing them, when Zack Kassian is driving the attack and Brad Richardson leading forwards in ice time, anything seems possible for the Vancouver Canucks. Even a three-game winning streak.
An 11-game winning streak to close out the National Hockey League regular season and possibly put the Canucks in the playoffs? Well, let...
Minnesota forward Nino Niederreiter was given a two-minute minor for interference. As you can see Nino hit Alexandre Burrows with a legal shoulder-to-shoulder check. There was no interference either. This is a blown call. The line - Nino Niederreiter Interference - 2 min against Alexandre Burrows
If you're on Twitter, especially in the home stretch, injuries and illnesses that keep a player out of the lineup even for one game can appear to be magnified. At least by the fans they certainly are as fans delight that (insert player here) is out with the flu or a really nasty lower body injury (i.e. hangnail). But should fans and especially teams relish that kind of information...
Semyon Varlamov has never beaten the Vancouver Canucks, but the absence of Henrik Sedin may help him change that.
