Ebbett celebrates an GWG in OT against San Jose in December. The Canucks haven't lost in OT in a calender year.
21 and counting. That’s what the Vancouver Canucks streak is up to in regular-season games without an overtime loss. Oh sure, until recently, there have been more than a few shootout setbacks along the way. But the Vancouver Canucks are – and have been for a while now – bulletproof in regular season overtimes.

Alex Edler upsets the ladies with his shootout prowess.
You've probably noticed but four of the last five games the Vancouver Canucks have played have been settled in a shootout. This isn't necessarily horrible, at least the home team has been picking up points. They're also giving us more to fret about over the last week or so than any discussion about obnoxious tie games and how they're ruining hockey, so there's that too.

Hey everyone, welcome to "The #Canucks Week in Tweets!" Every week, I plan on bringing you the best of the Canucks on Twitter, from the reasonable to the totally ridiculous (okay, mostly ridiculous)! If you see a tweet you think should be featured here, get in touch with me at @cullenthecomic!
Are we ever going to get over this? He’s an elite goalie. The game in question? Yeah, he basically got us a point in that one. And someone needs to say it: he’s better than Cory Schneider.

An ode to Byron Bitz, with respect to George Carlin...
Perhaps one of the most interesting words
in the English language today, is the word BITZ.
Out of all of the English words which begin with the letter B, BITZ is the only word referred to as the "B" word, it's the one magical word.
