The NHL does a lot to protect goaltenders from getting hit by opposing players. Tim Thomas decided not only did he not need to be protected, but that he was going to take the contact to Henrik Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks. Sedin would have had a great chance to score on the play, but Thomas took the body to stop him.
That is certainly one way to keep the puck...
Vancouver Canucks star Henrik Sedin admitted that the team lost its composure in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
After winning the first two games at home, the Canucks suffered an 8-1 loss at Boston on Monday. It was the biggest blowout in a Finals game since Montreal beat Florida by the same score on June 6, 1996.
The Canucks were whistled for two major penalties and five...
A bite. A taunt. A handful of flops, dives and embellishments. A late, dirty hit. A flying elbow late in a lopsided game. This Vancouver Canucks team is making it easy for the hockey world to hate them -- and they apparently don't care. The Globe and Mail ran a feature on Tuesday night that detailed the growing number of folks in the anti-Nucks club. Said Blackhawks forward Dave...
What happens when your fighting for the puck in Tim Thomas' crease? He runs you over, Henrik Sedin found that out the hard way. Here is the video.
BOSTON (AP) -- The last time Henrik Sedin looked, the Vancouver Canucks' hats were blue, not black.
Daniel and Henrik Sedin are identical twins, but they don't always view things the same way.
Both had slightly...
In the moments after Saturday night’s 3-2 overtime decision in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, Henrik Sedin said the Canucks basically stole the win because it was the team’s poorest performance of the playoffs.
The Canucks didn't like Tim Thomas's hit on Henrik Sedin in Game 2. In fact, the Canucks have talked to league officials regarding Thomas leaving his crease and initiating contact.
Wow! What a game tonight, Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas says no to Vancouver Cancuks diver Henrik Sedin... This is also not the first time Tim Thomas has done this. Tim Thomas also checked Jason Blake a couple of years back when he was a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
After Monday’s 8-1 loss to the Bruins, Vancouver’s Henrik Sedin mentioned he’d rather lose a game like that than the manner Boston lost the first two games. We’ll see about that.The defeat was embarrassing in every sense of the word. And in the process, the Canucks may have woken the sleeping giant with the Aaron Rome hit on Nathan Horton. How will the Presidents’ Trophy...
As with any 4-0 game in the third period, things were getting chippy, especially after the Aaron Rome hit on Nathan Horton early in the game.
With the Boston Bruins and Vancouver Canucks dishing out over 60 hits by the middle of the third period, Tim Thomas wanted to get involved after facing just one shot at the time through almost seven minutes of play.
His victim: Henrik Sedin...
The story coming into the Stanley Cup Final was how the power play was the Vancouver Canucks' strength and the Boston Bruins' weakness.
The story after three games: The trend has been reversed.
The Canucks are 1-for-17 on the power play and surrendered two short-handed goals in Game3. Meanwhile, the Bruins are 3-for-12 on the power play after being 6-for-51 in the first...
Image by Getty Images via @daylifeAgain more whining from the Vancouver Canucks about the Aaron Rome suspension. I say again; imagine if the shoe was on the other foot and Boston Bruins tough guy Shawn Thornton had smoked Ryan Kessler, Alex Burrows or one of the Sedin sisters twins at the blue line with a questionable check? Would they not expect the same kind of a ruling from the...
So 8-1. That happened. In a finals game. Against arguably the leagues best team. You know what? I’m over it. Let’s look ahead to keys to today’s game 4.
1. Remembering what got you here
Look, the Canucks have been blown out these playoffs before. They’ve responded with some mixed. Remember the two blowout losses to the Blackhawks were followed by other loses. But...
Alex Burrows circled the net and scored a stunning goal 11 seconds into overtime, and the Vancouver Canucks took a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup finals with a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Saturday night. Right after the opening faceoff, Burrows received a pass from Daniel Sedin and streaked down the boards, eluding Boston captain Zdeno Chara behind the net before extending...
