VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Kevin Bieksa scored his second goal of the game at 2:15 of overtime, lifting the Vancouver Canucks to a 5-4 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Sunday night. Zac Dalpe and Chris Higgins each had goal and an assist for Vancouver, while Jannik Hansen also scored. Bieksa also had an assist and Roberto Luongo, shaky at times, made 29 saves for the Canucks. On the winner, Bieksa chipped his fourth goal of the season over Phoenix goalie Mike Smith just as a Coyotes power play expired in the extra period. Antoine Vermette had a hat trick for Phoenix, and Shane Doan added a goal and an assist. Smith finished with 20 saves. It was a night to forget for both Luongo and Smith as two of the three goalies heading to next month's Winter Olympics for Canada fought the puck and looked lost in the crease at times. After a wild finish to the second period that saw Phoenix trail 4-3, Doan tied the score on a breakaway at 5:24 of the third. The Coyotes captain moved i...

Over the last 10… *My* Canucks 3 stars

Top Canucks Ok, things appear to be all out of wack right now in Canuckville, including the ever popular OTL 10 series, the sole reason many of you visit www.nwsportsbeat.com (come on admit it!). Seriously though, from the fact that the last installment of OTL 10 was actually 12 games, not 10,  to Torts going apesh*t on the Calgary Flames, being a Vancouver Canucks fan is a bit...

Your Vancouver Canucks

from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province, Then you throw in the fact that the stars of the home team are simply not present. Yes, two of the three are alleged to still be in uniform, but surely the fellow in Daniel Sedin’s uniform is some sort of clone who’s been smuggled into the room by a Swedish scientist while the real guy rests up for the Olympics. How else do...

Vancouver Canucks lose their scoring touch

We know this because they took a look at 900-year-old Vinny Prospal.Alas, the Prospal comeback lasted exactly one practice with the Utica Comets. He returned home to be with his family and apologized to the Canucks for putting them out.So the search continues for the struggling Canucks. “We...

Canucks need to stay course

No, not the golf course. By the looks of that picture, the links aren’t that far. This season has been an up and down roller coaster of emotion in Vancouver. Injuries, bad bounce goals, power outage on the power play, #1 penalty kill and everything in between. The Canucks need something to go their way, it just has to….doesn’t it? Every season brings new challenges whether...

Canuck winger Dale Weise figures Coyotes’ Hanzal will ‘have to answer bell’

There appears to be some bad blood between the Vancouver Canucks and Phoenix Coyote centre Martin Hanzal, who achieved the dubious distinction of injuring three Canuck forwards in one period nine days ago. Hanzal used his stick to take out Henrik Sedin, Mike Santorelli and David Booth in the third period of a 1-0 Coyote victory in Phoenix. None of the three players were able to...

Canucks Won’t Back Down Against The Coyotes Tonight

from Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province. Next up, Phoenix’s Martin Hanzal. It was Hanzal, guilty of using his stick like he was clear cutting a forest, who managed to end Henrik Sedin’s decade-long iron-man streak. He knocked Mike Santorelli out of the lineup with a shoulder injury. He also got his stick into David Booth’s face, a cross-check which easily could...

It didn’t matter as Vancouver hung on for a 5-4 overtime win over the Phoenix Coyotes at Rogers Arena. No one was expecting the kind of goal-fest that erupted Sunday night. The Canucks and Coyotes have both had trouble...

Oilers-Canucks Preview

Coyotes-Canucks Preview

Neither the Phoenix Coyotes nor Vancouver Canucks have collected an abundance of wins lately. However, the Coyotes topped the Canucks just over a week ago, and they will face a team that will be without its coach and likely without its captain again Sunday night. Phoenix (24-18-9) is 6-10-4 in its last 20 games but snapped a season-high string of five consecutive road defeats with...
