Found October 30, 2013 on Rob The Hockey Guy:
It’s the most famous elbow in Canucks history. The Canucks were underdogs against the Dallas Stars in their second round playoff series in 1994. Coming off a 60 goal season and a double overtime series clinching goal, Pavel Bure was obviously a marked man. The Stars were hacking and whacking Bure at every opportunity in game 1, and again in game 2. Seven minutes into game 2, Bure took a cheap shot from Stars enforcer Shane Churla (Churla had 333 PIMs in 69 games that season). Instead of backing down to the dirty play let go by the referees, Bure took justice in his own hands. Bure leveled Churla with an extremely vicious elbow, knocking him unconscious. Remarkably, the elbow went unpenalized. It was a premeditated head shot on the Stars enforcer, to which Bure was given just a $500 fine! Those were different times indeed. Bure explained his actions: It’s not my style, but I had no choice. They’re trying to kill me. I’m lucky I didn’t get hurt. Churla almost assuredly had a concussio...

Ryan Stanton finds a new hockey home with Canucks

Some of the best words a young pro trying to establish himself as a NHL regular can hear are “you can move out of the team hotel.” Defenceman Ryan Stanton got that message on the Vancouver Canucks’ recent seven-game road trip and with the help of his mom found some new more permanent digs in the Yaletown area. He slept -- like a baby, he said -- in his own bed for the first...

Carol Schram: Vancouver Canucks Game Review: Winning Streak Ends, Bure Night Ahead

Wednesday October 30 Detroit Red Wings 2 - Vancouver Canucks 1 Happy Halloween! It was a bit of a scary showing on Wednesday night at Rogers Arena as the Detroit Red Wings snapped their four-game winless streak with a 2-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks. I'm not so sure that the loss was a result of fatigue on the part of the top forwards—I think it's...

Overworked Canucks

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province, Ryan Kesler and the Sedins, who are one, two and three among NHL forwards in ice time, again logged a work load that contravened several of this province's labor laws.

Red Wings-Canucks quick take: Wings take a hard-fought game via clutch scoring, goaltending

T'was a strange game. You would think that John Tortorella and the streaking Vancouver Canucks, having won 4 straight and coming into a game against an 0-2-and-2 Wings team that was giving up 32-and-change shots per game, well... You'd think they'd shoot the damn puck. Instead, on some absolutely atrocious ice, the Canucks seemed relatively content to win a low-scoring...

Daniel Alfredsson had the other goal for the Red Wings (7-4-2), while Jimmy Howard made 19 saves as Detroit snapped a four-game slide.

Red Wings-Canucks game-day updates: Wings reset lines, Eaves to return vs. streaking Canucks

The Detroit Red Wings begin something of a gauntlet-running slate of 4 games played over the course of 6 nights when they tangle with the Vancouver Canucks tonight (10:30 PM, FSD/TSN/97.1 FM), and the Wings spent Tuesday insisting that they're ready to address the issues which have contributed to a 4-game losing streak.

Red Wings-Canucks wrap-up and overnight report: Wings earn a win to build upon

The Red Wings hopped on a very late-night flight to Calgary having snapped a 4-game winless streak, earning a gutsy, hard-working 2-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks. I don't disagree with some of the Canucks' assessments of the game. It was definitely won and lost in the trenches, and the first period at least wasn't elegantly-played, especially on what was just...

Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: Dallas Unable to Crack Habs Wall of Defense

Dating back to the 2011-12 season, the Dallas Stars are now 4-20-2 in the second half of back-to-back games. The team added another one to the loss column last night in a 2-1 road loss to the Montreal Canadiens. For the most part, I actually thought Lindy Ruff's team played a better game than it did in Monday's uninspiring 4-3 win over the woeful Buffalo Sabres. The difference...
