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's not get carried away just yet. But with eight games to go, the Canucks are still down but not out in the playoff race and a lot of positive things are happening that were not only a couple of weeks ago. Take David Booth, for instance. At the trade deadline three weeks ago, the Canucks would have begged anybody to take him. Suddenly, he looks indispensable, scoring twice Wednesday to lead the Canucks to a third straight win, 5-2 against the Minnesota Wild, and within four points of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Booth's two goals lead Canucks over slumping Wild

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. Minnesota...

Canucks’ Alexandre Burrows chips tooth on a granola bar?

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...

Canucks recall Corrado after Bieksa injured versus Avs

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.

Booth strikes twice as Wild fail in pathetic fashion in 5-2 loss to Vancouver

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...

Canucks-Avalanche Preview

Semyon Varlamov has never beaten the Vancouver Canucks, but the absence of Henrik Sedin may help him change that.

Who's to Blame for Home Loss?

Not much can be said about tonight's game for the Wild, except, well I can't think of anything to say. This game left me with no words and scratching my head wondering what they need to do to find the net. The Minnesota Wild would control much of the play in tonight's home game against Vancouver, but would find themselves surrendering the first goal to David Booth. However...
