Postgame: Beantown Beatdown

Reunion of the Lotto Line For a while, it appeared as though Jake Virtanen was becoming a mainstay on the Canucks’ first line. He filled in on Brock Boeser’s usual spot and looked right at home alongside J.T Miller and Elias Pettersson. Virtanen has gone pointless in the Canucks’ last two games, which gave head…

Postgame: Markstrom backstops Canucks to 3-2 win over Kings

10 minutes, 25 seconds. That’s how long it took for the Vancouver Canucks to register their first shot on goal against the LA Kings in tonight’s 3-2 victory.

No, you won’t hear anybody talking about how they’re #DrunkOnFantenberg. Not yet at least. The Vancouver Canucks’ newest seventh defenceman may have a while to go before achieving Alex Biega’s folk hero status, but he’s actually been an upgrade on his predecessor over the small sample of games he’s played.
