It has been quite some time since we were able to put the words winning streak and the Vancouver Canucks together.
VANCOUVER — Suddenly, just like that, Chris Kreider was skating with speed and with authority, transporting the puck, going to the front, setting up as a net presence, and playing the style of straight-line, power hockey that informs his game. That was Sunday night in the Rangers’ meat-and-potatoes 4-1 victory over the Senators at the...

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Alain Vigneault is two games away from becoming the 22nd coach in NHL history to achieve the 1,000-game milestone, a club that’s an exclusive one, indeed. But there is another, even more exclusive club of which Vigneault is already a member, but this is one he is looking to bust out...
One after another on Tuesday afternoon, the Rangers expressed surprise. Center Derick Brassard answered: “Oh yeah?”
Like all great tenors, his voice has aged beautifully. Though limited in range, it remains keen and rich, on tone and distinct. It could fill The Met in New York, but fills Madison Square Garden instead. It could fill most of the Eastern seaboard. Alain Vigneault still has his chops. For coaching, too.
In his rookie season with the New York Islanders, Todd Bertuzzi would often catch a ride to practice with Isles veteran Derek King. King was then in his 10th season on Long Island, and standing on the 16th tee of his pro career. Like Bertuzzi, King had been a first-round draft pick and tabbed as a future star. Unlike Bertuzzi, he had a sense of perspective about the game and its fleeting nature, a
Leafs score from center ice on crazy bounce
Vancouver Canucks rookie Jake Virtanen will be getting a taste of the minors, as the club announced Tuesday that the 19-year-old Abbotsford native has been sent to the AHL’s Utica Comets on a conditioning assignment.
Frank Corrado’s strange situation continues with the Maple Leafs.
Three things to ponder following the Canucks’ 5-2 win over the Sabres on Monday night…
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Pulsating postgame music in the home dressing room at Rogers Arena has been far from the norm this season. For one night at least, the Vancouver Canucks could relax. Radim Vrbata scored three goals for his sixth career hat trick and Vancouver beat the Buffalo ...
Points to ponder after the Canucks ended a five-game losing streak Monday as Radim Vrbata found his scoring touch with his sixth career hat-trick, Brandon Prust got a good-luck stick touch from Todd Bertuzzi to score his first goal in 50 games and Ryan Miller finally got to stick it to his old club:
When you’re linked to a plugger like Jordin Tootoo for all the wrong reasons, something had to give. Radim Vrbata was tied with the grinder for the NHL’s worst +/- rating at minus-17.
Before the parade committee calls for a meeting, it should be pointed out that an early-December home-ice victory over the Buffalo Sabres isn't exactly the strictest standard for success in the NHL. But, when you're 0-for-the month and you have three W's to show for your last 16 games, you don't spend a lot of time picking apart the wins.
The Canucks find themselves in a bind right now. Not good enough to be leading the chase into the playoffs, not bad enough to be re-naming streets “Auston Matthews Boulevard” quite yet.
Radim Vrbata scored three goals for his sixth career hat trick to help Vancouver beat the Buffalo Sabres 5-2, snapping the Canucks’ winless streak at five games.
THE DEBRIEF The Canucks took advantage of hot shooting by Radim Vrbata and some cold goaltending by Linus Ullmark to beat the Sabres 5-2 and end a five-game losing streak. Vrbata had a hat trick to increase his goals total by 50 per cent, and Brandon Prust and Henrik Sedin, pictured, also scored by putting pucks through Ullmark. Ryan Miller, pictured, had 32 saves for Vancouver, which went 1-for-6
As noted philosopher Todd Bertuzzi once said, -- actually, more than once -- it is what it is.
Radim Vrbata recorded the sixth hat trick of his career as the Vancouver Canucks snapped a five-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night.
Todd Bertuzzi smiled. And anyone who saw it at Monday’s press conference smiled, too, because it was something no one witnessed during Bertuzzi’s 7½ seasons with the Vancouver Canucks. This was not the cocky smirk through broken teeth or menacing grin Bertuzzi displayed for the media as a player in Vancouver, where he wore a surly disguise so naturally and for so long he eventuall
A bit of offensive punch recently brought some relief to the Buffalo Sabres, who can get back on track by delivering another blow to an already struggling club.
The Canucks will pay tribute to one of the best lines in team history tonight when they continue their home stand with a visit from Jack Eichel and the Buffalo Sabres. Prior to puck drop tonight, the Canucks will hold a pre-game ceremony with m...
Unfortunately, Markus Naslund, Todd Bertuzzi and Brendan Morrison will only be dropping the puck, not shooting it. The Vancouver Canucks could certainly use a little West Coast Express magic right about now.
Markus Naslund, Todd Bertuzzi and Brendan Morrison did more than pile up points as the West Coast Express, three Vancouver Canucks who for a time may have been the best line in hockey.
Brandon Prust’s frankness is one of the few things in working order for the Vancouver Canucks right now. Prust tagged the $5,000 fine he received from the NHL head office on Sunday for his spear to the nether regions of Boston Bruins pest Brad Marchand on Saturday as “the best money I ever spent.”
Sometimes, sorry is the hardest word to say, so Brandon Prust didn’t even bother trying. The Canucks’ winger was making no apologies Sunday after the NHL fined him $5,000 for his spear to the groin of Boston forward Brad Marchand late in Vancouver’s 4-0 loss to the Bruins on Saturday night.
In addressing the Bruins’ 4-0 victory in Vancouver Saturday night, it’s important to stipulate at the start that the Canucks — with all due respect to old friend Jim Benning, the general manager — just aren’t a very good team.No NHL team has fewer victories than the young Canucks, who have won just 3-of-12 home games. Not only did they appear woefully short on talent vs. the B’s, only
Reunited and it feels so good. For one night and one night only, Markus Naslund, Todd Bertuzzi and Brendan Morrison – the entirety of the most famous line in Canucks history – will be together again in celebration of the West Coast Express. ...
