Vigneault on Canucks' goaltending change

It could turn the playoff series around or backfire in spectacular fashion. The Canucks are rolling the dice by putting Cory Schneider in for veteran Roberto Luongo tonight in Game 3, and this will be the first time Schneider has faced the Kings in his career. The other Canucks change for tonight is minor: Dale Weise supplants Andrew Ebbett on the fourth line. Of course, the goalie...

Daniel Sedin on way to LA full practice tomorrow gametime decision

Learned just a short time ago from the Canucks twitter account. Quote: Daniel Sedin will join #Canucks for full team practice in LA on Tuesday. Coach Vigneault to comment shortly. Head Coach Alain Vigneault addressed the media this afternoon in Los Angeles and advised that Daniel has been following protocol and has been cleared to resume practice...

Where has Canucks' late season momentum gone?

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...

Canucks LW D. Sedin out for Game 3

Vancouver Canucks left wing Daniel Sedin will not travel with the team to Los Angeles for Game 3 of the Western Conference quarterfinal series Sunday night against the Kings, coach Alain Vigneault confirmed Saturday.Vigneault did not rule Sedin out for the remainder of the series. He remains day-to-day.Sedin has missed the last 11 games with a concussion he suffered in a game on...

Vancouver Canucks on brink of elimination vs. Kings

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...

Canucks vs. Los Angeles Kings blog: love ’em & hate ‘em game 3

Westbound and Down Well this was unexpected. After 10 months of patiently waiting for a shot at redemption, the Vancouver Canucks surprisingly find themselves on the brink of elimination. Like the Pittsburgh Penguins, the cup favourite Canucks have found themselves in an 0-3 hole with very little answers. I have no idea what happens from here, but I should point out this week is...

Kings staying calm after 2 big wins

Dustin Brown played in 431 regular-season games before he finally got into the NHL postseason two years ago. Although he has an Olympic medal, a lucrative contract and a ''C'' on his shoulder, he's never been on a playoff run longer than 12 days. That's the problem with being on the Los Angeles Kings. That's also why Brown is making sure his teammates...

Goalie performances act as unwanted anchors for Flyers, Canucks

The glamour. The stars. The noise. It seems like Los Angeles would be the perfect setting to recapture a playoff series that had escaped him. After giving up three goals in Game 1 and four goals in Game 2, the best thing Roberto Luongo could do is put those games in the past and become reenergized for Game 3. But there was only one problem: Luongo's teammate and fellow goaltender...

Sutter has Kings' attention

Just a few minutes after the game had ended Sunday night, most of the Kings still were smiling about their 1-0 victory over the Vancouver Canucks, which gave them a 3-0 lead in this best-of-seven first-round playoff series. But not coach Darryl Sutter. He stood behind a podium and frowned. "You don't get nothing for three," Sutter told reporters. True enough, and...

Brown, Kings push Canucks to brink of elimination

Captain Dustin Brown scored 6 1/2 minutes into the third period and Jonathan Quick made 41 saves as the Los Angeles Kings pushed the Presidents' Trophy-winning Vancouver Canucks to the brink of elimination in their Western Conference quarterfinal series with a 1-0 decision on Sunday. Justin Williams and Anze Kopitar each notched an assist for the eighth-seeded Kings, who own...
