5 game winning streak. Unbeaten in February. That's pretty darn good.
Last night's win makes it 14.
Can we win the Cup?
We have a shot at it, definately.
Vancouver has a history of running hot and cold, but they've been hot since January 2002. I think this is the real deal. They're not the pushover they once were.
Yeah. I think they're doing MUCH better than they were before, especially considering what happened while they were being coached by Mike Keenan.
Each and every member of that team deserves recognition for the improvement in the team, but I attribute it mostly to Naslund, Morrison, Bertuzzi, Crawford, and to a degree, Cloutier. They're all doing their job very well.
Well, the Canucks 14-game unbeaten streak came to an end on Thursday night against the San Jose Sharks. I guess it?s true what they say: all good things must come to an end. Regardless, this 14-game unbeaten streak was franchise record for the Canucks.
In addition the loss on Thursday, the Canucks lost two of their core players to injuries: Bertuzzi (eye) and Ohlund (knee). Luckily, both of their injuries are not as serious as was initially thought; hopefully, they?ll be rejoining the team at some point during their upcoming 5?game road trip. Nonetheless, Cloutier (knee sprain) and Chubarov (abdominal strain) are also injured as well. Hence, the question now is: will GM Brian Burke be making any trades/deals before the NHL Trading Deadline on March 11?
Canucks took a beating. 3-0 loss against Philly.
They played a very poor first period, but at least they didn't let any more goals in during the last two periods. Unfortunately, they didn't score any either.
Ah, well. It's only two games. It's not like the whole season's down the toilet.
Hi, everyone! I?m fortunate enough to be going to the Canucks? game tonight against the Washington Capitals. However, unlike what happened on Thursday at Montreal Canadiens? game, we?re definitely going to keep things classy and show respect for the American national anthem.
I?ll be sure to let you guys know how the game turned out.
Hi, everyone! I just got back from the game not to long ago. The Canucks beat the Capitals, 6-0! Woot! The Canucks scored five power play goals (the Caps were quite undisciplined). Alex Auld, who was in goal, had an excellent game; as did Bertuzzi, Naslund and Daniel Sedin.
And during the singing of the American national anthem, there was one brief boo by a lone individual; but we quickly drowned him out with both applause and cheers ? which was very cool.
How was the Canadian anthem treated?

The proper way to respect an anthem is to remain silent. Some people...
Kind of sad when a few fans booing an anthem becomes an international incident. Hey America. Paranoid much?
?How was the Canadian anthem treated??
Good question. It was pretty much the same response, except some people were singing the national anthem and the applause/cheering was concentrated near the end of the anthem.
One other thing about last night that I forgot to mention last night was the sheer amount of advertising in GM Place; it really seemed as if it increased since that last time that I was there. Literally, every free space was covered with some form of advertising. There was even a Viagra ad on one of the centre-ice boards. [face_shocked] Luckily, it wasn?t on the TV-side of the arena.
Also, during the post-game show and in the papers this morning, I noticed that a lot of people were harping about Canucks? uncertain goalie situation going into the playoffs, as Cloutier sat this game out (due to injury), while some people believe that Skudra?s days are numbered (I?m not exactly sure why).
Us > You
LOL @ Chris!
Yeah, the Canucks had a great outing tonight. Cloutier made his return; and in a post-game interview, he said he felt no soreness in his knee ? which is good news. And Naslund got his 100th point of the season! I honestly believe that both he and Bertuzzi have legitimate chances of winning the Art Ross (most points), the Rocket Richard (most goals) and the Hart (most valuable player) trophies ? all of which would be firsts for a Canuck player (I believe).
I might as well post this now and get it out of the way:
All I need to say is the Canucks Kick Ass..but then, does that even need to be said?
5-1. What did I tell you? OWNED!
Well, the Canucks tied the Phoenix Desert Dogs tonight: 3-3. The good news is that the LA Kings beat the Colorado Avalanche, 5-3. So that means that if the Nucks beat the Kings on Sunday (their last game), they win the Division. If they don?t win, they may have to face the St. Louis Blues in the first round of the playoffs.
Also, Markus Naslund picked up another goal, so he has 48; while Milan Hejduk (of the Avs) has 47 and Bertuzzi has 46.
Lastly, I don't know about you guys, but I getting jacked for the playoffs.
I've been excited about the playoffs for a few weeks now, but death to the Ontario media that only shows Toronto games.
I should be able to catch the last round when we get there, at least. If not, I'll be writing a strongly worded letter to CBC.
Well, i can't resist.
I've been waiting for the right time to stike at this thread, and nows the time.
COLORADO GOT 1ST IN THE DIVISION!!!
Naslund did'nt get the most goals or the most points. Hejduk and Forsberg robbed him of both of them!
Sorry, like i said i could'nt resist
