Hey, guys! It's Cat Silverman with the post-game, live from Glendale's press box. 

Since I sat right above the Canucks moms - and heard how rowdy those ladies got every time things got too rough for their baby boys - I feel like this kind of special game deserves a special kind of recap. 


(Also, the arena Wi-Fi is killing me tonight, so I'm changing things up).

Canucks Recall Yannick Weber and Alex Friesen

In the wake of the long term injuries to Alex Edler and Brandon Sutter (again), the Canucks announced today that they have called up Yannick Weber and centre Alex Friesen.

We all know Weber's story already. He's had a largely disappointing season with the Canucks so far, and as a result, he was waived and announced to Utica when the team gained full health. Alex Friesen, on the other hand, is new blood. This is Friesen's first call up to the Canucks and is in concert with this season's trend of giving every Comets player who is technically a prospect a look-see in the NHL.

The Canucks should consider claiming Christian Ehrhoff

The Los Angeles Kings turned a few heads across the hockey world today, placing German defenceman Christian Ehrhoff on waivers. While it's possible that he clears and bolsters an already competitive Ontario Reign in the AHL, the odds are much more in favour of a team picking up his $1.5 million salary. So here's my thought; why not make that team the Vancouver Canucks?

Coyotes

The Canucks were issued an Avalanche warning yesterday and brought jet skis... no, arctic cats... I don't get out much. Nucks won yesterday and the new usual suspects (Bo Horvat, Sven Baertschi, Luca Sbisa and Matt Bartkowski) were taking names. Moms trip part Deux is in Glendale tonight and might the kids have more in store for their opponents. Oh I can't wait to find out! Neither can Matt Bartkowski's mom.

What we can learn from Henrik Sedin's 5-game scoring drought

Jeff Paterson
February 10 2016 12:00PM

Henrik Sedin has gone five games without a point. 

I’m sure he’s not thrilled about it and my guess is neither are the Vancouver Canucks. After all, that’s not really the prescribed plan to stay in the playoff chase, with your captain and best play-maker going missing at crunch time.

That’s not to suggest he’s playing poorly. Henrik had arguably the Canucks' best scoring chance in the first period last night in Denver as he broke in on right wing. He started a play that led to Daniel’s clear cut breakaway in the second period, couldn't finish off a two-on-one with his brother in the third period and even had a look at the empty net when Patrick Roy pulled his goalie with a few minutes remaining in the game. A bounce here or there, Henrik hits the scoresheet and this is a non-story. 

But the facts are the facts and Henrik Sedin was held pointless for a fifth consecutive game. I point this out not to throw darts in his direction, but rather as a tribute to his consistency and reliability.
