CanucksArmy Post-Game: The Best of Shotgun Jake

The Canucks had their undefeated streak ended in their last game, falling victim to a messy, stupid matchup against the Tampa Bay Lightning and the entirely-inhuman Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Canucks Army Postgame: Not even the Brock Star is safe

The injury bug. Let’s talk about him for a second. Every year, there’s an NHL team that just seems to almost get laughably hurt. It’s obviously not funny to watch player after player go down with injury, but there seems to be nothing to do BUT laugh – if the fans think about it too…
