Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, NHL,

Owen NolanWith the invites of Owen Nolan and Todd Fedoruk to training camp, the Vancouver Canucks are trying to address some issues that stopped them from completing a successful road to the Stanley Cup last season. They fell one game short of the coveted prize, but many believe they were lucky to be anywhere close to that with the way their postseason was so up and down.

Tim Thomas cleaning up NHL hardware

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Championship, NHL,

Tim ThomasIn the aftermath of the city of Vancouver tearing itself apart, it’s easy to forget that the Boston Bruins are the newly-crowned Stanley Cup Champions. Tim Thomas performed admirably in net in securing his team the championship trophy as well as locking up the Conn Smythe Trophy himself as playoff MVP. By shutting out the opposition in the biggest game of his life, Thomas has secured himself as a fixture as both a Bruin and an American.

Canucks go up 2-0 in Stanley Cup Final

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Championship, NHL, Playoffs,

Ryan KeslerThe Vancouver Canucks seem to have found their stride in the postseason. After winning the Presidents Trophy and being the regular season’s top-scoring team, they carried that momentum in taking the first three games against the Chicago Blackhawks in Round 1, but then stubbed their collective toe, almost blowing the series to the Hawks before winning Game 7. It took them six games to finish the Nashville Predators and five games to clinch against the San Jose Sharks, and now hold a 2-0 series lead against the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Final.

Ryan Kesler leading Canucks to 3-1 series lead

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, NHL, Playoffs,

Ryan KeslerThe Vancouver Canucks played to a couple of firsts on Thursday night. Their 4-2 victory over the Nashville Predators was their first win by more than a goal since April 13th. It was their first game in the series in which they scored a goal in the first period. Captain Henrik Sedin scored his first goal of the playoffs (an empty net freebie). It was also their first game of the series in which it felt like the Canucks were actually building momentum towards something.

Vancouver Canucks need to find scoring touch

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, NHL, Playoffs,

The Sedin TwinsThe Vancouver Canucks forced a relative scoring explosion in Tuesday’s game against the Nashville Predators. Yes, three goals in 70:45 counts as an explosion for a team who hasn’t scored as many goals in a single game since April 24, and have only scored as many as three in four out of 10 playoff games this year. They’ve only managed 21 goals in their 10 playoff games, and have been taken to overtime four times, winning two of them.

Canucks beat Blackhawks and all is right with the world

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, NHL, Playoffs,

Roberto LuongoIt‘s a good day to be Roberto Luongo. The Vancouver Canucks goaltender played one of the best games of his career in Game 7 against the Chicago Blackhawks and ended up getting much more than just a win. Luongo was almost perfect, stopping 31 of 32 shots, but faltered only once during the game. Unfortunately, that came with just 1:56 left to play in regulation when Jonathan Toews finally solved him and sent the game into overtime.

Chicago Blackhawks force improbable Game 7 versus Vancouver Canucks

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, NHL, Playoffs,

Roberto LuongoVancouver Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault attempted some subterfuge on Sunday, telling media that Roberto Luongo was still his number one goaltender going into Game 6 against the Chicago Blackhawks, despite two dismal games in a row, but then started backup goalie Cory Schneider instead. Schneider played admirably in the net, at one point even being the best penalty killer during a 5-on-3 that lasted 1:42, but was remarkably dismal when he tried to play the puck outside of his crease, which led to two Hawks goals.
