Late in the first period on Tuesday night, the Columbus Blue Jackets had an odd-man rush on the Vancouver Canucks.  Canucks forward Alex Burrows was doing his best to back-check and cover the man in front of the net.  He must have thought that there was a pass going out front, rather than a shot, because he dove in the passing lane.  The shot went wide and while Roberto Luongo was distracted watching the puck, Burrows slid into him and Luongo knocked his head on the crossbar.  Luongo was a little slow to get up, but he would be fine and stayed on the ice.  I would love to know what Luongo and Burrows said to each other after the incident.

ICYMI The Vancouver Canucks won! I’m serious! They did!

Two points! Throw all context out the window and celebrate the fact the Canucks earned two points in a game. Their slide means that simply winning a hockey game is reason enough to celebrate.

Can the Vancouver Canucks continue their anonymous slide?

This can’t keep up can it? The memory of Vancouver’s Game 7 loss to the Boston Bruins is in many ways no farther away nor less painful than it was just 21 difficult months ago. The core Canucks members remain but the question of whether this is the group that can still win the big one is much more suspect. Talent alone will not assure the cup victory the team and their dedicated...
