Are There Any Canucks More Clutch Than Cody Hodgson?

Watch out Henrik Karlsson, those two Canucks are "clutch".

Cody Hodgson, as we all know, had a terrific January. As a Canucks Army newcomer described on Twitter last night Hodgson has scored "big goals at big times". He scored the tying goal against Chicago on a breakaway and scored this year's most memorable goal (so far) with a vicious slapshot that beat Tim Thomas, and stood up as the winning goal in the Stanley Cup Final rematch early in the month.

This got me thinking. Which Canucks score the biggest goals at the biggest times? Also, does it matter? Well, yeah, in the scope of a month or two, you'll notice players who seem to come up big. In the interest of satire because I rail so often against a player's individual "clutch" ability, I counted up all the "big goals" the Canucks have scored this season. Those are goals in the 3rd period or overtime, as well as game winners.

The #Canucks Week in Tweets

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 @cullenthecomic!

Oh, Garry Valk. If you’re not accusing Luongo of faking an injury to win the shootout, you’re somehow implying that the Canucks team is composed entirely of women who are perpetually worried about breaking their nails. I guess Garry Valk avoided getting hit when he played, because he didn’t want to smear the glass with fake tanner.

More Tweets after the jump!
