In true Calgary fashion, after two troubling losses, the Flames battled back against a top team and came out with a 4-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks. This was a big win for the Flames; they outplayed the 1st place team in the Northwest in front of the hometown crowdâ¦and I donât want to hear about excuses that Vancouver arrived late ;).
Somehow, the ho...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Is Kesler on the block?
The most talked about commodity on the Canucks trade list over the past year and a half has been Roberto Luongo and that could very well be justifiable with the emergence of Cory Schneider (it still appears as though keeping Bobby Lu around for the duration of this season is the Canucks best move).
However, Vancouver may have another hot ticket to add to the...

Take the recent news with Keith Ballardâs agent telling News 1130 that heâd be calling the Canucks, more particularly GM Mike Gillis, about his clientâs playing time and situation as gamesmanship. Thereâs a whole lot of bluster and a whole lot of strategy in the move, perhaps more of the latter but itâs well masked.
What better time to get on a roll?
The Vancouver Canucks (11-6-4) are at home tonight playing host to the struggling San Jose Sharks (10-6-4). The Canucks are coming off a 4-2 loss against the Flames in Calgary on Sunday, while the Sharks beat the Nashville Predators on Saturday for just their third win in ten games.
The Canucks are off on a three game road trip after tonight’s...
Daniel Sedin and Jannik Hansen scored 2:44 apart late in the second period to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.
Dan Hamhuis, Mason Raymond and Chris Higgins, into an empty net, also scored for Vancouver, which put forth a strong effort against the defending Stanley Cup champions to stop a two-game losing streak.
Calgary scored the go-ahead goal one second after the minor had been killed.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Daniel Sedin and Jannik Hansen scored 2:44 apart late in the second period to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.

Burn After Watching
With the horrible weather in Calgary holding the Canucks in Vancouver Sunday morning, you began to wonder what to expect when the puck dropped at the Saddledome.
The travel wasn’t long, but hockey players have routines and disruptions to that routine during a home and away back-to-back can cause the type of flux that leads to what we saw last night.
from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,
It's hard to know when the forces of evil kidnapped the Western Conference and held it for ransom in Jacques Lemaire's basement. The L.A. Kings Stanley Cup victory? Maybe. But, long before the Kings hoisted the chalice, the darkness had already taken hold in St. Louis, in Nashville, in Phoenix, in Minnesota.
The erosion of...
Bring It On SanHosers!
Some would argue the Canucks need the jaws of life right now, but they’ll have to settle for Jaws tonight as they play host to the San Jose Sharks.
It’s been a one-up one-down type of year for Vancouver as they’ve never been able to fire on all cylinders, never minding Ryan Kesler‘s injury woes.
It’s gauntlet time with 14 games in 26 games for the...
The San Jose Sharks started to do a better job of limiting the Sedin brothers last season, and they know that's critical against the Vancouver Canucks.
The Sharks held the Sedins without a point earlier this year, and these teams meet again Tuesday night in Vancouver - where San Jose has failed to win in regulation in its last eight visits including the postseason.

After an interesting couple of days, the Calgary Flames will try to regroup as they take on the Vancouver Canucks at the Saddledome. Vancouver, who sits 8 points ahead of Calgary, is 8th overall and 1st in the Northwest, so tonightâs game will be no easy feat for the Flames.
Weâve faced off against the Canucks twice this season and...
This article was in the Vancouver Sun today and it’s a scream… it’s a must read if you haven’t seen it.
Cam Cole, The Vancouver Sun --- *** Is Boston coach Claude Julien right? Are the Habs the biggest collection of divers and embellishers in the NHL? (Memo to Beantown bloggers: does this mean the Vancouver Canucks are off the hook?) Is it an affront to all that's...
