Canucks alive thanks to Schneider, D. Sedin

Alain Vigneault was looking for difference-makers and he found them. As it turns out, they were likely suspects -- goaltender Cory Schneider and winger Daniel Sedin. Schneider made 43 saves and Sedin recorded an assist in his first game back from a concussion as the Canucks beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-1 in the fourth game of their Western Conference quarterfinal series. As a...

Focused Canucks earn their bounces in win

Perhaps the scuba tanks were thrown off the Santa Monica Pier, because there certainly wasn't any diving Wednesday night at Staples Center. The Vancouver Canucks staved off elimination with a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings by earning their puck luck and leaving the referee-pleading, post-whistle shenanigans back at the hotel for the evening. By following the familiar roadmap...

Kings fail to sweep Canucks in Game 4

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Cory Schneider made 43 saves and stopped Dustin Brown's penalty shot in his first career playoff victory, Daniel Sedin sparked Vancouver's power play in his return from injury, and the top-seeded Canucks avoided an embarrassing first-round sweep with a 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 on Wednesday night. Kevin Bieksa scored the go-ahead...

Series Turning Point? Cory Schneider stops Brown on penalty shot

"Great Save Schneider" Denies Dustin Brown of the LA Kings in the second period. Is this the TSN turning point? The series turning point? The Canucks went on to win Game 4 3-1. Now the series goes back to Vancouver for a Game 5 date on Sunday. Let's get it on. We now have a series.

Devil in the blue crease: Vancouver Canucks goaltending quandary

Part 2: Somebody That I Used to Luuuu I started the day by hashing out the pros and cons (You really need to read my first article. Go on! Do it now!) of starting either Vancouver Canucks goaltender in Game 4 tonight especially in light of the prevailing sentiment and some choice comments from Alain Vigneault that hinted whoever got the nod tonight might be getting the nod in future...

Which Canucks goaltender gets the nod for Game 4 and beyond?

Watch the Crease The strangest part about the position the Vancouver Canucks currently find themselves in is not only that Roberto Luongo is the first starter benched in a playoffs that has seen Luongo-esque performances by Marc-Andre Fleury, Ilya Bryzgalov, Martin Brodeur and Jose Theodore, but also that this is the first Vancouver playoff meltdown in the Luongo era that isn...

Daniel Sedin elbows Dustin Brown

This has been the talk of twitter tonight, Vancouver Canucks forward Daniel Sedin elbowed Los Angles forward Dustin Brown. Don't expect the league to look at this play; there are two sets of rules in the NHL, there are one set of rules for star players like the Sedin twins and then another set of rules for the tough guys and goons. To me this seems kind of hypocritical...

Kings Can Take The Next Step Tonight

from Rich Hammond at the LA Kings website, Two years ago, a lot of zeros boarded the Kings’ flight to Vancouver for the start of the playoffs. Dustin Brown: zero career playoff games. Drew Doughty: zero career playoff games. Anze Kopitar: zero career playoff games. Jonathan Quick: zero career playoff games. A quartet of young players, the core that had led the Kings to the playoffs...

Video: Henrik Sedin elbows Dustin Brown while he is down in Game 4

Daniel Sedin returned to the Vancouver Canucks' lineup in Game 4 on Wednesday, having been out with a concussion since March 21. Henrik Sedin at one point throws a soft elbow with a glove swipe at Dustin Brown while he is trying to get to his feet. The Canucks beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-1 in Game 4. The Kings lead the series 3-1.

NHL Playoff Observations -- Wednesday

Just a few things that caught my eye ... Double digits -- the Pens can roll over now that they've saved face. Is it me or is it completely counterproductive for a guy to play hockey against a steamroller like Dustin Brown when it hurts his head to play tag with his kids? Yes, I'm talking to you, Daniel Sedin. C'mon. Orca's coach Alain Vigneault...
