Found March 15, 2013 on Awful Announcing:
The Vancouver Canucks' goaltending situation looks spectacularly awkward from the outside, as Cory Schneider took over the top job late in last year's playoffs and was presumed to be the starter this year, leading to endless trade rumours about Roberto Luongo. This year, though, both have played so well that head coach Alain Vigneault has joked about making his decisions on who to start in a particular game by flipping a coin. Of course, that has many wondering about how Luongo and Schneider are handling the situation, and they teamed up with TSN's James Duthie to provide the hilarious answer: There's some pretty great stuff in there, from the "Thing 1 and Thing 2" shirts to each goalie's attempt at slam poetry (an area TSN has explored with Luongo before) to the tremendous outtakes at the end. What's particularly impressive, though, is that Luongo and Schneider are willing to poke fun at their situation. It's tough to imagine, say, Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow doing the same thing. Luongo in particular has shown off his sense of humour before, though, especially on the Twitter account he's almost-admitting to these days, and Schneider clearly has comedic chops as well. Good for TSN for taking a different tack here, too; the hockey media has run approximately seven million serious takes on the Canucks' goaltending situation this year, so this is a refreshing change. It's a hilarious video, and a terrific variation on the usual sports coverage. [Puck Daddy]

Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider spoof their “rivalry” on TSN segment

The goalie situation in Vancouver is anything but settled, what with Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider going back and forth as the number one netminder on the club. As it stands Schneider and Luongo have nearly split the goaltending duties right down the middle, appearing in 14 and 12 games respectively. Despite this ongoing competition, the two happen to be quite friendly, as evidenced...

Roberto Luongo, Cory Schneider Goalie Controversy Parodied in TSN Skit (Video)

The goaltending battle between Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider has been a hot topic this season in hockey-crazed Vancouver. The four-time All-Star and the Boston College alum have been jockeying for time in the Canucks’ net, with both putting up strong numbers but neither standing out enough to win the starting job outright. You’d think this competition would cause a rift between...

Roberto Luongo and Corey Schneider star in hilarious video about their relationship

The Vancouver Canucks goalie situation has been talked about often ever since Corey Schneider replaced Roberto Luongo in the playoffs last year.  After deciding to keep Luongo for the time being, he ended up replacing Schneider when Schneider didn’t play well to start the year. The two are friends off the ice which makes things much easier for them, and this video with TSN’s...

What Do You Think Of The Vancouver Millionaires Look?

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet, When you think Vancouver and millionaires and Stanley Cup finals, who comes to mind? Seems fitting that the Canucks’ $64-million man, Roberto Luongo, and his team will be wearing the awesome Vancouver Millionaires throwback uniforms on Saturday as the team hosts the Detroit Red Wings. The Vancouver Millionaires, who wore maroon and...

Red Wings-Canucks Preview

The Vancouver Canucks finally snapped out of their scoring slump, but their power-play unit hasn't come through in quite some time.

Nashville Predators vs. Canucks betting odds and handicapping preview

4 Game Home Stand Begins vs. Predators Well, on paper, the Vancouver Canucks three game road trip was not a total disaster! Three points in two games against Columbus helped them garner three of a possible six points during the three game road swing. The Canucks return home Thursday to face a Nashville Predators team that has had as much trouble scoring goals as the Canucks as...

Henrik Sedin undresses Chris Mason on sick penalty shot deke

I personally don’t think that this should have been called as a penalty shot, but there have been a lot more penalty shots awarded this year than in years past.  With a one-goal lead late in the game, Vancouver Canucks captain Henrik Sedin was given a penalty shot and boy did he ever take advantage of it.  Sedin had been 0 for 3 in shootouts for his career, but this move he pulled...
