On Saturday, December 27th 2014 the Vancouver Canucks ECHL affiliate, the Kalamazoo Wings, played in the first ever ECHL Outdoor game.  The game was hosted by the Toledo Walleye and was located in downtown Toledo.  With the first ever ECHL Outdoor Game goal scored by a Canucks' prospect, it was a historic moment for all teams involved.

December Deep Dive

Writing is a funny thing. Back in my November deep dive, I boldly stated that I thought the Canucks would be able to make the playoffs on account of them accumulating 33 points in October and November, which was likely enough of a cushion for them to get in even if they play .500 the rest of the way. Wouldn’t you know it, the Canucks proceeded to pick up a measly 12 points in 11 December games, finding themselves in a four way tie for 5th place in the west at the end of 2014 with a few games in hand. I’d prefer it if the Canucks didn't try so hard to prove me right, but here we are...

The Vancouver Canucks entered Saturday night's game looking to put Thursday's loss to the Los Angeles Kings behind them, and they did just that on the back of another strong performance from Ryan Miller and the Sedin twins. Vancouver's powerplay scored twice, Henrik Sedin scored his 200th and 201st career NHL goals, both into empty nets, and Miller held the Detroit Red Wings off of the scoreboard for most of the night, en route to a 4-1 win.

Vancouver rang in the new year in probably the least desirable way possible with a no-show against the Los Angeles Kings. Though they had a 2-1 lead with moments to go, the Canucks' poor play caught up with them, resulting in one of the most disappointing losses of the season. They'll look to keep pace in the Pacific division tonight and avoid a similar performance against a resurgent Detroit Red Wings team on Hockey Night in Canada.
