They say change is a good thing and Daniel and Henrik Sedin can attest to that.
Their season has been like a soap opera -- call it As the Sedin’s World Turns -- with something new seeming to happen every day. Their ice time is up quite dramatically they’ve had a whole series of different linemates they have been split up at times they are killing penalties and blocking shots.
And to think the season is only eight games old. What will the next 74 games bring?
“I think excitement is a good word” Daniel said Friday when asked to describe the season to date for him and his brother. “We have been put in situations that we haven’t been put in before and as a player that is all you can ask for. We always looked at ourselves as being really complete players.”
And new coach John Tortorella is giving them a chance to prove it.
The twins have been workhorses this season. Both are averaging more than 21 minutes of ice time a night. That’s a full two minutes more than last season.
BEST OF MAXIM
Roberto Luongo turned aside 25 shots for his 63rd career shutout as Vancouver dropped host Buffalo. Chris Higgins scored for the second straight game, Brad Richardson had a short-handed tally and defenseman Ryan Stanton notched his first career goal.
Higgins’ goal marked the first time in five games that the Canucks have scored first and the eighth time in nine games that...
Stanton Scores! from Sedin and Sedin…Ok, I’m sure not even Ryan Stanton himself would say before the season he would expect to be hearing that.
Canucks General Manager Mike Gillis is known for his “moneyball” signings, career revitalization projects, Tryout offers to washed up veterans, and his proven ability in contract negotiations. But when Gillis picked up Ryan Stanton...
Ryan Stanton will never forget his first National Hockey League goal and he’ll always remember who assisted on it: Daniel and Henrik Sedin.
“That’s pretty special” Stanton said of his third-period goal Thursday on Ryan Miller at the First Niagara Center.
“Two superstar NHLers like that. They are so good and I was just lucky enough to get in the slot there they got me...
It is extremely rare for an NHL team to play as early as the Vancouver Canucks will today in Pittsburgh against the Penguins. The Pacific time zoned club will have puck for breakfast as their 1:00 EDT game, happens to…Read more →The post Hockey Morning in Canada: Canucks play Penguins at 10 AM Pacific Time appeared first on The Hockey Daily.
Young Vancouver Canucks forward Jordan Schroeder left Saturday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins with a foot injury and won’t return.
Head coach John Tortorella’s shot-blocking strategies prompted the Vancouver Province’s Ben Kuzma to clarify that Schroeder 23 didn’t hurt his foot getting in front of a puck.
Eight games into the regular season and the Penguins finally face a team that made the playoffs last year in the Vancouver Canucks. It’s an ironic match-up. Both teams have two superstars and rock solid supporting casts and both teams also have a goaltender that has fallen short in the playoffs for years. The Canucks…

The Vancouver Canucks have aced a couple of pop quizzes. Now they must prepare to write the first big exam on this seven-game road trip.
The Canucks have done what they should have in the first two games of their mini-marathon. They beat two teams that have combined this season for two wins.

Game #3 on the epic Eastern road trip for the Vancouver Canucks brings them to Pittsburgh for a morning tilt with the Penguins. The Penguins have been flying out of the gates with a 6-1 record to start the season. The Penguins are not the Buffalo Sabres so expect the Penguins to actually touch the puck every once in awhile.
The Canucks haven't been to Pittsburgh in like three years and let's be honest, we didn't miss them. Excuse us while we giggle derisively into our coffee because yes, it's still coffee territory at 1pm. Steiggy kept calling the Canucks one of the most successful franchises of recent years. If you mean that the way you mean it when you talk about the Capitals...
After coming ever so close to extending their win streak to 3 games, the Canucks are right back at it tomorrow in Columbus, Ohio for a tilt against the Blue Jackets. How will Vancouver perform after a quick turnaround from a hard fought battle in Steel City? Read on to find out.
