VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Maxim Lapierre scored in the shootout, Cory Schneider made 33 saves through overtime and the Vancouver Canucks clinched a playoff berth with a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.

Roberto Luongo, in a surprise start, made 40 saves and Maxim Lapierre scored the go-ahead goal as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Calgary Flames 4-1 on Wednesday night.
Andrew Ebbett centered a pass that Lapierre swatted behind Miikka Kiprusoff from the top of the crease, breaking a 1-1 tie with 9:23 left in regulation.
Up until that goal, most of the play in the third period was...

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...
Is Lappy the best linemate for Hank + Burr?
Over the past few weeks the Vancouver Canucks scoring drought, and the defensive trap it spawned, forced me to come up with a new means to enjoy the games that had unfortunately become more than a bit tedious.
So, two weeks back I decided to come up with the perfect BC solution in the form of an updated ‘Nucks drinking game.

Maxim Lapierre may be one of the most despised and looked down upon players in the National Hockey League but you’d think people could be nice for just one day right?
I pose this question because on Thursday, March 29th, Lappy as he’s affectionately known will be turning 27 years of age.
So what does one get a 207 pound centre-man from Saint-Léonard,...
The Vancouver Canucks announced a ruling today by the NHL Officiating Department after a review of the penalties assessed to Maxim Lapierre at 19:32 of the third period on February 9, 2012. The Hockey Operations Department has reviewed the incident and rescinds the penalty assessed and recorded in the stick related category of game misconducts.
Cal Clutterbuck and Maxim LaPierre fought last night in the Wild vs. Canucks game. The Wild won the game 5-1 so not much to talk about there. As for the fight itself none of the players even got touched. Just a bunch of men hugging on each other. The ref on the other hand didn't make it out without a scratch. He caught two inadvertent left hooks from Clutterbuck...
The fight between Minnesota's Cal Clutterbuck and Vancouver's Maxim Lapierre was intense enough to get an official involved.
Clutterbuck was tied up with Lapierre in front of the Canucks bench late in Thursday's game when the Wild forward swung blindly and inadvertently hit linesman Darren Gibbs in the face instead of Lapierre.
Gibbs didn't appear to...

Anyone who's ever played against or even watched Maxim Lapierre play hockey can attest to the fact that the Vancouver Canucks forward can make you want to punch something -- especially Lapierre. Minnesota's Cal Clutterbuck found himself in something of a tussle with the Vancouver agitator on Thursday night in a game between the Wild and Maple Leafs. The two got tangled up...
