California and Refs beat Canucks

Its been a rough week in Canucksville to say the least. A monster performance in LA despite the loss, being pummeled within an inch of their life against the Ducks, basically it was a write off and finally to continue the trend, the Coyotes add to Vancouver’s endless misery with a win where again, nothing could go right. Even though losing is part of the game of hockey, teams don’t...

John Tortorella tries to visit the Flames’ locker room after Nucks-Flames brawl

Burke sees few untouchable assets on the languishing Flames a little over a month ahead of trade deadline

He appears stumped. A rare enough occasion. The topic that gives Brian Burke pause on this night? No, not the brawl between his Calgary Flames and the Vancouver Canucks. (That particular icebreaker of a subject, by the way, is a non-starter in the visiting team’s bunker at Rogers Centre.) What renders the Flames boss speechless during Saturday’s second intermission is a question...

Flames set franchise record for futility on home ice

No way could there be any talk of moral victories. No chance the Calgary Flames could speak of near misses, bad breaks or a determined effort coming up shy. Not in the manner with which they were thumped 5-2 by the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night. So often this season, even amidst some of the defeats during this franchise-record seven straight home-ice losses — all in regulation...

McKenzie weighs in on Saturday night’s controversies

After a player-brawl and coach-attempting-to-visit-opponents-scrap-filled 3-2 Vancouver Canucks shootout win over the Calgary Flames, coach John Tortorella played it by the book during his brief post-game presser: He more or less built an impenetrable, "I'm not answering that" and/or, "I won't talk about fights with anyone who didn't play the game"...

Flames-Canucks Preview

The Vancouver Canucks are struggling to score goals at a rate few teams can relate to. The Calgary Flames happen to be one of them. The goal-starved Pacific Division foes will try to break out of their respective slumps Saturday night in Vancouver. The Canucks (24-16-9) are on a season-worst 1-5-3 stretch since Dec. 30. After Thursday's 1-0 loss at Phoenix - their second by...

Calgary/Vancouver - Old-Time Hockey

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail, So there was Vancouver Canucks’ coach John Tortorella, who’d more or less been on his best behavior all season, trying to get to the Calgary Flames’ dressing room after the a brawl-filled first period to challenge … who? Bob Hartley, the Flames coach? Probably. It wouldn't have made any sense to go after Brian McGrattan...
