Canucks 4 - Avalanche 3 (OT)

The last game of the season for our Canucks was a win. We couldn't watch on our big TV as the lamp for the rear projection blew last night and there's no way to get in touch with Toshiba over the long weekend. Argh!

The season's over for the Canucks (as well as that other team from the arsehole of Canada). What's going to change in the off-season? Dunno, but the team has plenty of time to work on their golf swings. My bet is there are no shake-ups at all. If we see any changes at all it will probably be saying goodbye to Mark Crawford. Who knows?

I'll keep posting as Canucks news happens.

Canucks 3 - Sharks 5

Oilers won.

Bye bye playoffs...

I'm too sad to say much else right now.

Canucks 4 - Sharks 5 (OT)

I couldn't watch or listen to the game at all. That's a very rare thing and it showed. I was going nuts last night at work. I think I need detox from Canucks hockey. I'm Mike and I'm a Canuckaholic. I had to get the scores from the Transport Captain, Cam, who being an Oilers fan was taking glee in the Canucks struggle. Bastid!

This OT loss, even though it garnered them a point, leaves the team's fate in the hands of those rotten Oilers. The Oilers have to lose for our Canucks to make the play offs. Ugh. Things aren't looking good even though the team isn't giving up, which is a bit of a shock considering some of the who cares play we've seen this season.

Tonight sees Vancouver in the shark tank in the final of their home at home with the Sharks. It's a must win game and again due to work I won't be watching or listening.

Go Canucks Go!

Canucks 2 - Ducks 4

Waaah Waah... not posting after periods as I was working for most of the game. The Canucks didn't play badly at all but they just couldn't get it past Ducks goaltender JS Giguere enough to win. Shit!

On the upside, the Canucks for Kids telethon has raised over $800k already. All proceeds go to Canuck Place.

See, there is a silver lining.

Bert smokes Phaneuf

Here's a video highlight from last night's game:

Bertuzzi's huge hit on Phaneuf in the third period. It's about time Bert started throwing his weight around again.

Canucks 3 - Flames 2 (OT)

After the first period
Jovo's back! Yay! And creates the play that got a powerplay goal for Brendan Morrison. It's a relief to see Ed Jovanovski back with the team.

Mattias Ohlund also scored on the powerplay giving the Canucks a 2-0 lead going into the dressing room after a very spitied first period that saw Burrows thrown into the Calgary bench by Flambés goon, Simon.

After the second period
No goals, but lots of chances for the Canucks. The puck spent the majority of the period in the Flames end of the rink and the 'nucks had some close calls on Kipper who was doing everything but build a brick wall to keep the puck out of the net. Todd Bertuzzi's charging to the net seemed to rattle him a bit but still no dice.

Greg Millen, the know-it-all asshole CBC announcer, seems to be completely out of his mind on methamphetamines again this evening. I must say I hate Millen as much as I hate the Canadian Tire Guy who has thankfully been shit canned. Could Millen be next? Please hockey Gods.... please!

After the third period
The Flames were all over the Canucks, who were trying to protect their lead, and charged back with 2 goals in the third. Argh. Weinrich sucks... !!!

To OT.

Jovo scores! What a welcome back game for him. The Canucks get the two points they needed against their arch-rivals and the Flames get the one they needed to clinch a play-off birth. Everyone's a winner. Awesome finish.


Game day!

Finally after a break that seemed like forever the Canucks are playing the first of their last five games of the season. These couldn't be more important. The Clagary Flambés come to town looking for one point to cinch a playoff point and our Canucks are two points out of the play-offs. Its do or die time.

Go Canucks Go!

Canucks 0 - Kings 1 (Final)

I'd love to be able to watch the hockey game I paid for but apparenlty Shaw the cable monopoly has only one channel dedicated to PPV game. So I'm stuck watching the Oilers beat the living shit out of the Coyotes and will join the Canucks game 'in progress'. Great! Assholes... The radio doesn't quite cut it.

After the first period
The PPV finally relieved us of the Oilers pounding the living daylights out of Phoenix, but not before just pausing for 5 minutes on the Oilers logo on our TV. I think the TV's broken now. We started by watching Brian Allen chatting about the game so far and then a very boring interview with Nazzy's dad. Sigh... I want to watch some hockey dammit.

After the second period
The Canucks aren't looking so hot. The Kings outshot and outplayed them in the second. Demitra scored on a shot that just trickled in behind Auld. Vancouver spent most of the period on the penalty kill due to stupid penalty after stupid penalty. I forgot my jersey. I have to put that on before the third period starts. How can they win without me on the team? :)

After the third period
I got nothing... neither did the Cancucks. The Hockey Gods left them high and dry tonight. The only reason the game wasn't worse for the Canucks was due to the stellar performance of Alex Auld. Honestly we've never seen that from Cloutier as long as this fan can remember. Maybe Clouts is out. Auld has only one more win to tie Cloutier's best season and 5 games left to do it in. Methinks it will happen.

So the result of tonight's game was not good. The team has to win at least 4 of their remaining 5 games or its golf season. Argh!
