Canucks Bieksa Pretends to be Kesler in Radio Interview

After Game 4 between the Vancouver Canucks and Los Angeles Kings was in the record books Wednesday, Canadian Mike aka Mike Dunsmore of FOX Sports Radio did a radio interview with Ryan Kesler. Or so he thought. Listen to the interview and you can figure out who it was. Dunsmore (@CanadianMike101) tweeted this at 2:16pm pacific time on Saturday afternoon: Kevin Bieksa is a beauty...

Luongo doesn't want to be distraction

Six seasons ago, Roberto Luongo's attitude would have been different. Now, the veteran goalie is attempting to take his new backup role in stride as the Vancouver Canucks prepare for Game 5 of their Western Conference quarterfinal series against the Los Angeles Kings. Cory Schneider is expected to start in goal Sunday for the Canucks, down 3-1 in the series, while Luongo watches...

Kesler and Lapierre told to zip it.

Vancouver Canucks center Maxim Lapierre during a game against the Colorado Avalanche on March 16, 2011. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) I couldn't resist with this one. The most unlikable team in the NHL has told a few of their players to quit yapping. You can't make this stuff up. I guess the coaching staff for the Vancouver Canucks figured out that the rest of the NHL was tired...

At least Canucks won't have far to travel

So much for home ice advantage. The Vancouver Canucks spent 82 games amassing the best record in the NHL, guaranteeing them the No. 1 seed and home ice throughout the playoffs. But the LA Kings had other plans, bouncing the President's Trophy winners from the postseason in five games and beating the Canucks in every game at Rogers Arena. In Game 5, the Kings earned a 2-1 comeback...

Stanley Cup Playoffs: Round 1 Wrap-up: Cory Schneider is only winner in Vancouver Canucks elimination

If you’re going to lose, do it with your best. That’s how Vancouver Canucks coach Alain Vigneault approached the series after going down in the series 0-2. Cory Schneider, shown here in this file photo, could be the Vancouver Canucks No. 1 next year. Or, quite possibly, another team's starting goalie. Either way, his playoffs performance, despite a lack of wins...

2012 canucks playoff song

Yes we all know the Vancouver Canucks don't have the best fans. (I'm of course referring to the 1000's of fans that sit on their hands in suits during Canucks games) NOT the die hard fans that can't afford tickets that watch games in sports bars all over BC 82 games a year. Yes we all know the Vancouver Canucks came up one game short of winning the cup last year...

Kings end Canucks' season in 5 games

Jarret Stoll beat Cory Schneider with a wrist shot at 4:27 of overtime to give the Los Angeles Kings a 2-1 victory over Vancouver on Sunday night, knocking out the top-seeded Canucks in five games in the Western Conference first-round series. Stoll scored from the left wing after a turnover at Vancouver blue line. The forward skated in on a 2-on-1, but took the shot himself, picking...

Vancouver Canucks Birthday Presents: Alex Edler

And many more… The man of the hour is Alex Edler who will turn 26 years of age on Saturday (April 21), a day before the biggest game of the season for the Vancouver Canucks. It’s also a game where it’d be awfully nice for him to step up his game because you know the Kings would love to capitalize on more defensive gaffes by the Canucks. Edler’s stats this series are somewhat...

Vancouver’s Cup Run Ends Quickly

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, “Nobody envisioned this.” Despite which club you thought might win this series, or whether you reckoned these Vancouver Canucks were made of stern enough stuff in Year 2 of their Presidents’ Trophy reign, head coach Alain Vigneault’s words summed up well what happened to the Western Conference champions in Round 1 this spring. Lose to the...

Kings win Game 6 in OT, finish off Canucks

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Jarret Stoll beat Cory Schneider with a wrist shot at 4:27 of overtime to give the Los Angeles Kings a 2-1 victory over Vancouver on Sunday night, knocking out the top-seeded Canucks in five games in the Western Conference first-round series. Brad Richardson tied it for Los Angeles at 3:21 of the third period, and Jonathan Quick made 26 saves...

Kings-Canucks Preview

The Vancouver Canucks will have a new second line Sunday when they attempt to stay alive in the Stanley Cup playoffs against the Los Angeles Kings. Alex Burrows, Ryan Kesler and Max Lapierre - dubbed by one pundit as the Three Mouthketeers because of their outspoken ways on the ice - want their actions to speak louder than words in Game 5 of the Western Conference quarterfinal series...

Saturday Night Hockey Points

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,  • What a hockey summer this might be: The possibilities of Tim Thomas, Roberto Luongo, Rick Nash and Jarome Iginla being available, and that’s just the beginning. • Pavel Datsyuk didn’t disappear in the Detroit-Nashville series. Ryan Suter made him disappear. Wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to see the Red Wings go hard after...
