Found October 13, 2013 on Puck Drunk Love:
The Vancouver Canucks scored one of the strangest own-goals you'll ever see when they hosted the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night. While on a power-play, Roberto Luongo moved behind his net and played the puck over to Jason Garrison. Garrison left the puck for Dan Hamhuis. Hamhuis lost the handle and the puck squirted toward Luongo who was now facing away from the action. The puck hit off of both of Luongo's skates and somehow ended up in the back of the net. Insane.  The goal was awarded to Lars Eller as he was the last Canadien to touch the puck. What is with strange plays and unbelievable stories following Luongo and John Tortorella?

Line combinations still eluding Canucks

When Lars Eller found he had been credited with the goal the Vancouver Canucks put into their own goal in the second period the one question he wanted answered is whether or not he gets a plus for being on the ice when his team scored. Because after all he wasn’t in fact on the ice when it went in. And while you could thus argue the Canucks scored one more goal than the one they...

Vancouver Canucks Defenseman Alex Edler suspended 3-games for illegal hit

Vancouver Canucks defenseman Alex Edler, a repeat offender is given a Shannaban for this dirty hit on Sharks forward Tomas Hertl who's taken the NHL by storm with his play so far this season.

Vancouver Canucks Score Bizarre Goal On Themselves

I’m with the announcer. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a hockey goal scored like this. The Vancouver Canucks scored on themselves after Dan Hamhuis lost the puck behind his own net.  The puck bounced off both skates of goalie Roberto Luongo and slowly crawled across the goal line. I’m not sure if this beats Jonathan Quick’s blunder for Worst Goal of the Year but it’s definitely...
