After Vancouver Canucks head coach John Tortorella complained over a penalty call, a Pittsburgh Penguins fan took the opportunity to make fun of Tortorella crying over a call. You have to love some of the hockey fans that sit behind the benches.
BEST OF MAXIM
The jaw wasn’t jutting out. The lips weren’t forming a pout. And there was nothing to suggest he was about to shout.
John Tortorella stood there and methodically reviewed a game in which the Vancouver Canucks coach didn’t get the pace push presence and consistency he demands on a nightly basis. The tactician and teacher didn’t turn into a tormentor after a 3-1 loss to the...
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...
I’ll be the first to admit: when I heard the news last June that Canucks GM Mike Gillis had hired John Tortorella as coach, I feared an unmitigated disaster. By all accounts, Tortorella had worn out his welcome with the New York Rangers, disrespecting journalists and losing the dressing room (or at least stars like Marian Gaborik and Henrik Lundqvist).
To me, and to many 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.
That’s not meant to devalue their 3-2 win in Philadelphia or their 3-0 shutout victory...
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...
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...

John Tortorella and the Canucks head into Pittsburgh for an afternoon game. John Tortorella is a huge fan of the Penguins.
The Canucks are probably the Penguins' toughest opponent yet this season, so it will be interesting...
Eddie Lack has gained the admiration and adoration of his teammates for a quirky and ongoing transformation to North American culture and smaller ice surfaces.
The Vancouver Canucks backup goaltender has a wide-eyed and humorous take on everything. His NFL fantasy football team (Eddie’s Meatballs) his teasing Twitter one-liners and endless hours playing X-Box make you wonder...
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…

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.
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.
You can make the argument that the Canucks played their best game of the season in Pittsburgh...
