Sunday's hockey playoff action was riddled with dirty hits, but one of the day's biggest checks was completely clean yet extremely scary for Canucks fans. Kings captain Dustin Brown cranked Canucks forward Henrik Sedin after the Vancouver sniper was caught with his head down at the blue line. Brown's hit left Sedin pawing at the bench door from the ice, which can be seen below.

Boston Based Sully's Brand Sedin Sisters T-Shirt
A.B. I have no clue if this is a Kings fan rocking a t-shirt courtesy of Sully’s or if some Bruins fan paid $100+ just to harass the Sedin sisters.
Either way, I’m a fan of the t-shirt, this guy & hating on the Sedin sisters in general. Vancouver hasn’t been the same since the days of Linden & Bure and these two...
Dustin Brown is making sure the Los Angeles Kings don't get happy after a bit of early playoff success.
Even after eighth-seeded Los Angeles stunned the Presidents' Trophy-winning Vancouver Canucks by taking the first two games of the first-round series, the Kings' captain realizes the historic obstacles in the way of a 44-year-old franchise that still has never lifted...
In my opinion this hit by L.A. Kings forward Dustin Brown on Vancouver Canucks forward Henrik Sedin is a clean shoulder to shoulder hit, maybe a second late, you will notice that CBC announcer Jim Huson didn't like the play and much to his chagrin that the refs didn't call a penalty on the play. The game immediately got chippy after this play.
There is an old saying...

There has been much discussion on the internet whether the Dustin Brown’s hit on Henrik Sedin was a legal hit or not. This morning Sedin put that speculation to bed with his comments.
Emotions boiled when Brown steamrolled Sedin with a shoulder hit in the Canucks captain's chest early in the second period, sending Sedin crawling to the bench and...

In a game that many felt would be the best game of the series the Canucks killer Dustin Brown did it again and scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 game 3 victory for the Kings over the Canucks tonight. Jonathan Quick got the shutout for LA. Before this year, the Canucks have been behind 2-0 four times in history. They've been swept all four times. The only thing I can...
The LA Kings defeated the Vancouver Canucks to take a 3-0 lead in the series.
Dustin Brown scored the only goal of the game in the 3rd period.
The solution is simple as the Vancouver Canucks look to avoid an upset in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Coach Alain Vigneault's crew must be better on special teams after suffering a 4-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings in the second game of the best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinal series Friday night.

The Canucks went looking for Big Mo on Sunday night, but he was nowhere to be seen as the Canucks fell 1-0 to the Los Angeles Kings in the third game of their first-round playoff series.
Big Mo is otherwise known as momentum -- something the Canucks are seriously lacking in their attempt to stave off elimination.
The Canucks had plenty of momentum late in the regular season as...

How does one sum up the keys to winning the first game of a potential four game comeback?
There truly is no set of special keys that unlock this magical door we hope the Vancouver Canucks can open. They simply must be the best in every way, shape and form.
Is it possible? Yes.
Is it probable? It’s always been.
Is it certain? Not by a longshot.
This is truly...
Can they still beat the LA Kings?
The numbers are daunting. Only three teams in history, out of 167 opportunities, have recovered from a three games to none deficit in the Stanley Cup finals. That is a pathetic winning comeback rate of just 1.8%.
So, then it must certainly be time to write the eulogy for this Vancouver Canucks team, should it not?
Not so fast.
Quite clearly the...
from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail, Just in case the Vancouver Canucks needed any reminding about which team was dealing with the most pressure in their opening-round playoff series against the Los Angeles Kings, defenceman Drew Doughty helpfully pointed it out early Saturday afternoon.
“They’ve got a ton of pressure,” said Doughty, “especially being in a market...
Skating a Fine Line
With every win the Vancouver Canucks move one game closer to lifting Lord Stanley’s mug, but with every loss the City of Vancouver moves one step closer to riot 3.0.
The Canucks know how important every last game can be, so after every win and loss NWSB will outline the reasons the Canucks are either destined for Stanley Cup glory or hockey riot hell.
