Canucks News & Rumors: Benning, Biega, Pettersson & Bure

It’s a difficult part of the season for the Vancouver Canucks, one way or another. The team has all but been eliminated from the playoffs, yet they went into Dallas and Chicago took two overtime wins from the Stars (in a shootout) and the Blackhawks (when Bo Horvat scored 16 seconds into overtime). Most fans might suggest that it’s a time when the Canucks should be losing, but this is a team that seems to win when it should be losing and loses when it should be winning. There is a slight cha...

Coyotes Weekly: Still in the Playoff Hunt

With less than three weeks to go, and with the Arizona Coyotes still firmly entrenched in a tight race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, there’s no doubt that, over the next few weeks, every game (and point) matters. There are only nine games remaining, and only 18 more points can be gathered, giving the Coyotes a 96-point maximum for this season. Six wins in those nine games will give Arizona 90 points – would that be enough to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs? Can they ...

Morning Player Notes (Mar 19)

The San Jose Sharks were without their captain last night against the Golden Knights, as Joe Pavelski has been sidelined with a lower-body injury and as much as it will be labeled as a day-to-day injury, the coaching staff couldn't necessarily put their finger on a return date, nor could they confirm it was a short-term issue.  It sounds like Pavelski will be missing some time here down the [Author: Clayton Corley]

Goalie Announcements (Mar 18)

It was a full weekend away from the computer, so if you missed all of these goalie posts over the weekend, I've got some bad news... it's getting really, really nice outside and there might be more time spent out there now.  I'm just giving you fair warning.  Granted, I'm thinking that if time permits, these posts will continue down the stretch, even though most races are already taken care of [Author: Clayton Corley]

How Could It Not Be A Goal?

from Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet, But whenever Vancouver fans think of Sunday’s game, it won’t be for Schaller scoring a deuce or Josh Leivo sniping the shootout winner. It will be for rookie Elias Pettersson being denied a second-period goal when Stars goaltender Anton Khudobin foiled Pettersson on a second-period penalty shot by throwing his stick straight into the Swede’s feet. Despite clear wording in the NHL rulebook that a goal should have been awarded automatically on Khudobin’...

Rangers Are This Season’s Unluckiest Team

The New York Rangers have had a season like no other in the team’s recent history. As a club that used to be a perennial Stanley Cup contender, the Rangers are used to getting good breaks and lucky rewards. That is seemingly the nature of the playoffs. One bounce here and one tip there, the team that takes advantage of the lucky breaks usually wins. But now the Rangers are experiencing the other side, the unlucky one. They’re a team that puts forth a plentiful amount of effort night in and night...

Ed Willes: Canucks' 'fearless' blue-liners offer sporadic leadership between injuries

Alex Edler and Chris Tanev providing a steadying influence for the Canucks' younger D-men sounds good on paper, but it's difficult to provide that steadying influence when your presence in the lineup is sporadic. After watching Chris Tanev carried out on his shield yet again, the question for the Vancouver Canucks isn't about the defenceman's value to the team or the respect he's earned in the locker room. No, following the 3-2 shootout loss to New Jersey on Friday night...

Brendan Smith Is Mr. Versatile

from Greg Joyce of the New York Post, The Rangers defenseman’s first full year in the organization ended early after an injury at AHL Hartford, 11 games into his tour of the minors that began when he went through waivers unclaimed in February. It was hardly what either side had in mind when he signed a four-year, $17.4 million contract, and the nightmare season had Smith doubting himself and his future. “I felt like I wasn’t good enough and I wouldn’t be able to get back,” Smith said ...

Coyotes Weekly: Still Scratchin’ and Clawin’

With 12 games left to play, the Arizona Coyotes woke up this morning in the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference. Despite all of their injuries – they lead the NHL in man-games lost – this team has hung around (or scratched and clawed, if you will) and has emerged as a threat to not only qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 2012, but to also make some noise once they’re there. Let's go. Scratchin' and Clawin'. — Oliver Ekman-Larsson (@OEL23) M...

The San Jose Sharks Keep Winning

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, When the Sedins retired, they wondered in Vancouver how it would affect the Canucks culture. In Boston there is no wondering: Patrice Bergeron and Zdeno Chara pass it down to players like David Krejci and David Pastrnak, who in turn indoctrinate young guys like Jake DeBrusk and Charlie MacAvoy on how things are supposed to work inside a perennially competitive NHL franchise. Hockey culture. To hockey analytics it is a unicorn. The thing you never se...

5 Canucks Building Blocks for the Future

Currently, the Vancouver Canucks are skating towards a post-season without playoffs. However, after the team’s loss to the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday night, the Hockey Night in Canada panel lauded the team’s future potential – just not this season. Really, no one predicted a strong season for the Canucks. It was to be a rebuilding season, but two primary surprises lifted the Canucks in the standings, and in their fans, hope for a stronger future. The first surprise was Elias Pettersson. He...
