Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! Tonight the Vancouver Canucks will play host to theâ¦ Uhh am I reading that right? The Columbus Blue Jackets? You'd think CBC could have found a better matchup than that for Hockey Night in Canada. Oh well, at least they have the Canucks playin...
BEST OF MAXIM
GOING THE DISTANCE
In the Vancouver Canucks vs. Columbus Blue Jackets game tonight we saw what might be one of the NHL goals of the year by the Canucks defenseman Alex Edler.
Coast to Coast!
If you listen carefully you can hear former goaltender Kevin Weekes on the CBC Hockey night in Canada broadcast team say “Coast to Coast and Butter on the TOAST!”
The goal put the Canucks up...
Kudos given to the Columbus Blue Jackets organization for its efforts in the digital space this painful season rarely comes without a name attached to it.

Pure hypothetical and meant to be fun
Say the Canucks go out in the first round. They limp out like they're playing now to some team like Phoenix or Colorado or maybe a sleeping giant like Los Angeles or San Jose. Or even worse, Calgary harnesses the hate that spews like oil in the tarsands in Alberta (I know it doesn't actually "spew" there) and Vancouver...
A new chapter may have just been added to the Columbus Blue Jackets’ season.
According to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, Jackets general manager Scott Howson is more interested in selecting Filip Forsberg first overall and not Nail Yakupov. From Garrioch:
Apparently, if Columbus GM Scott Howson is still employed by the Jackets come draft day, he plans to use the No. 1 pick to...
Canucks look to snap funk…again
It is pretty hard to be a Canucks fan these days and it is hard to predict outcomes of games that they should be winning but just aren’t. Vancouver will try to avoid a three game losing streak on Saturday night when they host the worst team in the NHL – the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Columbus Blue Jackets (22-41-7) at Vancouver Canucks (42-20-8...

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- Cam Atkinson scored the shootout winner and Steve Mason made 28 saves after coming in for an injured Curtis Sanford as the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 on Sunday night.
Nikita Nikitin scored for Columbus, which was playing on back-to-back nights. The Blue Jackets lost 4-3 Saturday night in Vancouver.

The Vancouver Canucks may be inching closer to clinching their fourth straight Northwest Division title, but they're enduring their worst stretch of the season.
Hosting the NHL-worst Columbus Blue Jackets, who haven't beaten them in regulation in more than two years, could help the Canucks start to turn things around.
They look to avoid their first three-game losing streak...
When the Vancouver Canucks came to Boston for their first match-up against the Boston Bruins since falling to the Black-and-Gold in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, there was no doubting the notion that the Canucks were a mere hunk of particleboard positioned towards an eight-spoked buzzsaw. Boston entered that matinee affair a staggering 8-1-0 in their previous nine, outscoring...
