Zack Kassian Tries To Hop Into Wrong Bench During Botched Line Change (Video)

Vancouver Canucks forward Zack Kassian was an unwelcome guest on the St. Louis Blues bench Thursday night. After a mess of a line change by Vancouver, Kassian went to great lengths to ensure his team didn’t get whistled for too many men on the ice. The forward was too far away from his own bench so he figured any ol’ bench would do, as he attempted to jump into St. Louis...

Canucks, goalie Ryan Miller overcome the Blues, 4-1

Two goals from a second line that had been a combined -9 two nights earlier in Dallas. Another...

Semyon Varlamov's solid start to the 2013-14 season led to his nomination as a Vezina Trophy finalist as he helped guide the Colorado Avalanche to their first division title in 11 years. But even when he's been in goal this season, the Avalanche haven't been nearly as good as they were during their first campaign under coach Patrick Roy. Varlamov returns from a three...

Video: Zack Kassian tries to jump in the Blues bench to avoid a penalty

The Vancouver Canucks had too many men on the ice and Zack Kassian tried his best to avoid a penalty by jumping in the Blues’ bench. Though he never actually made it past the boards, Kassian received an earful from Steve Ott. Usually you see things get pretty physical when an opposing player tries to jump in your bench, but it looks like the Blues were too shocked by Kassian suddenly...
