How does the universe schedule hockey events? Is there any sort of discernible pattern? Most Canuck fans were familiar with the 12 year pattern. 12 Years into the franchise's existence, the Canucks made it to the Stanley Cup finals. 12 years later, in 1994, they again made it to the finals. The pattern was broken in 2006, and since this pattern only seemed to indicate an eventual finals loss to a New York based team, no harm, no foul. Would we have had to lose to the Devils and watch them have their Cup "parade" in some god forsaken New Jersey parking lot?

Sorry SOB. You slept in. No game for you tonight.
The Vancouver Canucks return home for one game as they face the Phoenix Coyotes tonight at GM Place, and the Canucks have a tough test on their hands tonight. While the Canucks have cooled off lately, the Coyotes have been arguably the NHL's best in the past three weeks.

Typically the Hart Trophy goes to the flashier player and to the candidate with the most goals. But what is flashy and why is the flashy player often equated with being the league’s most valuable player? Ditto for goal-scoring. Why is scoring goals almost always taken to be more valuable than setting them up?
I have no doubt that Ovechkin will yet again be afforded the title of the league’s most valuable player. But should he? Isn’t there a better candidate here in Vancouver?

For the second time in 9 days, the Vancouver Canucks face the San Jose Sharks, as both clubs sit atop their respective divisions.Nine days ago, the Canucks started strong and played a solid game to win 3-2 in Vancouver. This time around, there is a lot of talk and questions around Roberto Luongo. The question is, "Is he 'back'?"

With just over two weeks remaining in the season, the push for the playoffs and home-ice advantage is on. The race for the playoffs isn’t that exciting unless you are a Flames fan and you died a slow death last night watching the Avs and Wings win.
