Canucks edge Flames 2-1 in nail-biter

It took 40 minutes for the Vancouver Canucks to find life but one good period was all they needed Saturday to beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 and put an end to their latest losing streak. The Canucks could muster only eight shots on goal through the first two periods and appeared headed for another demoralizing loss against a Calgary Flames with eight rookies in its lineup, including...

Fists fly and tempers flare as Canucks take shootout win over Flames

Why play hockey when you can fight, settle old scores, create new ones and, generally, make fools of yourselves before a national TV audience on Hockey Day In Canada? The Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames tore a page Saturday straight out of Slapshot and the 1970s with a line brawl to start the game and a coach — the Canucks’ John Tortorella — trying to storm the opposition’s...

Back-end depth leaves Canucks on thin ice

The Vancouver Canucks’ back end hasn’t really played this well as a unit since the 2010-11 run to the Cup, so certainly nobody is complaining about goals-against at the moment. As was the case when the Sedins were playing all those minutes and producing points earlier in the year, there always seemed there had to be a price to pay some time down the road. John Tortorella is...

Weber just treading water with Canucks

Yannick Weber is stuck in the jaws of a familiar NHL beartrap. It loves to snap its teeth shut on lineup fringers, notably No. 6 defencemen and fourth-line wingers. The 25-year-old Swiss defenceman signed with the Canucks on the first day of free agency last July, believing he’d picked a good landing spot after the Montreal Canadiens opted not to offer him a new contract.

Canucks blast Oilers 6-2 in home-opening tour de force

The Vancouver Canucks won't have a Burr in their saddle for a few weeks but showed Saturday night that life without their versatile forward might still be worth living.

Vancouver Canucks defenceman Chris Tanev will never be confused with the Incredible Hulk or Montreal Canadiens wide-bodied defenceman Douglas Murray who is hockey's version of the fictional behemoth.
