The date was November 23rd, 2011. The Canucks went in to Colorado and defeated the Avalanche 3-0 thanks in large part to a stellar performance from goaltender Cory Schneider.
It also marked Alain Vigneault's 247th win as head coach of the Canucks, moving him past Marc Crawford into first place in the club's all-time record books. The date was also Gabriel Landeskog's 19th birthday, and the young Swede was recently named as Colorado's captain, making him the youngest full-time captain in NHL history
Records and birthdays aside, the game has special significance for the Canucks and Schneider. Read on to find out why.

With the NFL season opening tonight, I'm not too worried about an NHL lockout.
I'll miss watching these two exchange no look backhand saucer passes though...

I’m not sure if you’re aware of this, but the Vancouver Canucks aren’t currently playing any games and it’s a sad time. Personally, I’m in the midst of some rough hockey withdrawal these days.
And that’s why I have decided to start re-watching old Canucks games from the (relatively) recent past. For this edition of the "Vintage Look Back," I watched the Canucks invade the Joe Louis Arena in early October 2006, to take on the Red Wings.

You're an NHL fan. You spend your hard-earned money every year going to games. You buy merchandise. You subscribe to Centre Ice. You've been through one, maybe two lockouts, and even a strike if you're really old. And now they're threatening to make you go through yet another lockout.
This makes you mad.
So mad, in fact, that you're willing to take action and show the world just how angry you are. And maybe, just maybe, your action combined with the actions of thousands of other outraged fans might even have an impact and a lockout will be avoided or at least shortened.
Well, you have every right to be outraged. But make no mistake, the angrier you get and the more you show it, the more you ensure the lockout goes on.

In what some people are choosing to classify as “news”, Roberto Luongo participated in a video interview from a practice rink in Florida, that was beyond bizarre.
