Hey, Daniel. Could you tell you the res of the team that tonight's home game starts at 7 o'clock.
No. SEVEN. Yeah, I know. Weird, eh?

Game Day Recon: Game #10 - Blues @ Canucks

The Canucks don't get much of an opportunity to sulk and wallow about their loss last night, as they face the St. Louis 24.5 hours after the start of their last game.

The Canucks have already have one set of back-to-back games this year. In game 1, they lost by one goal, then got shellacked in game 2 (the score line was not representative of the tilt in play). Vancouver is looking to seal a different fate tonight and maybe a return to Rogers Arena is what they need.

Canucks Mail in Two Thirds of Game, Narrowly Lose to Children

Despite his looking somewhat foolish on this goal, the Edmonton Oilers relied on Nikolai Khabibulin tonight, and the much mocked goaltender came through. He made 33 stops on the evening, and was only beaten on one shot for which, he was in the net. On this particular piece of Sedinery, however, Khabibulin is in Tim Thomas land by the time Alex Burrows taps it into a nearly wide-open cage. There aren't many things in hockey that get me quite as pumped up as a masterfully completed Sedin rush.  

It wasn't just Khabibulin who defeated the Canucks, however, the Oilers also enjoyed some puck-luck, and some opportunistic finishing from their emerging young stars, to topple the revamped Canucks machine on Tuesday night. The season is now progressing rapidly, but we've still only seen the Canucks play one road game. Sure the locations change, but it's the same script every time: Luongo plays poorly or gets chased, the defense is mediocre, the Sedins don't show up until the third (if at all) and the team puts in a sloppy first forty minutes, then goes on a "too-little-too-late" push in the third. People like to mock Vancouver's hockey team, and the team's starting goaltender, for being "unable to perform in April or June," but the Canucks are really just lucky that the playoffs aren't held in October.

Occupy Luongo Explained... I Guess

You probably noticed the dudes holding the Occupy Luongo signs at Rogers Arena last week, certainly Greg Wyshynski and Bruce Arthur did. Following up on his rocky performance in the Stanley Cup Finals, Luongo has struggled in the early going this season and Canucks fans have reacted with their own particular brand of impatience. All of this tension came to a boil during a rough third period against the New York Rangers on Tuesday. Towards the end of the game, Luongo was jeered by many of the fans in attendance, and his shaky play led the Vancouver Province to publish an editorial suggesting that Gillis trade Luongo to Tampa for Lecavalier…
