The first time this season the Canucks have been shutout 2 games in a row, also the first time they have faced 50 shots in a game this season......Image

Tuesday sees the Canucks in Winnipeg for a replay of their game played here on Monday which saw the Jets winning by a score of 5-2.

Vancouver at Winnipeg

72


The Canucks look to snap a four-game losing streak tonight when they face the Winnipeg Jets, who bring a three-game winless skid into the contest.

If there's one thing that should be consistent regardless of whether a team is in the playoff hunt or not, it's putting forth their best effort on the ice each and every night. Daniel Sedin's now-infamous comments following Saturday's lackluster 3-0 loss to the Blues suggests clearly that hasn't happened over the last several outings. If there's an opponent that should to spark the Canucks to put their best foot forward, it should be the Jets. Vancouver ought to have revenge on their minds with Winnipeg already having posted two wins over them this season and in convincing fashion no less.

The Canucks welcomed Jannik Hansen and Yannick Weber back to practice yesterday but it does not appear either will get into the line-up tonight. Vancouver did shuffle the look of their lines with the most notable changes being Alex Burrows being reunited with the Sedin twins, and Jared McCann moving to the wing on a unit with Linden Vey and Emerson Etem. Assuming the Canucks continue their trend of alternating their netminders, expect Jacob Markstrom to be between the pipes.

Nothing more than the Canucks setting a new club record for scoring, or lack thereof. The Canucks have been shut out for the past 228:00 minutes, beating the old record from January 1984. The Canucks have now lost five consecutive games, dropping their record to 27-33-12. They have just one more goal than the New Jersey Devils, which have the fewest goals in the NHL this season.
Also to be noted.....Henrik Sedin, entered the game tied with the great Maurice (The Rocket) Richard with 965 career points and 88th spot on the NHL's all-time scoring list.

Yeah, but for the good news - the Canucks are currently tied for 4th place in the draft with Winnipeg. If they make it to 3rd they have a respectable chance of drafting #1, because of the lottery.

The guy going #1 this year is a potential franchise center named Auston Matthews.

But according to some there's an even better option than drafting him. Matthews is from Arizona. Arizona is salivating to get Matthews. The Coyotes will also draft in the top 10. They have good young players. The talk is they would be willing to trade the farm and their #1 draft pick for Matthews. OK, maybe not the farm, but there is a name that's mentioned. I forget what it is, but supposedly it is 'ready to go right now' impressive.

I know we Canucks fans have said 'maybe next year' so many times we should be tired of it, but we have never had as much potential as we do right now.

People talk about all the potential Edmonton and Calgary has, and boy wait until it kicks in.

They should look at Vancouver's. We have nothing to be afraid of.

That's about the only thing the Canucks have going for them right now, a good draft choice or two will really help the team down the road as this season has been a complete bust as far as making it into the playoffs is concerned. It's never really been mentioned, but this year has been a rebuilding and restructuring year for the team, and in that aspect I think they are doing a fairly good job, bringing in the new, younger players. So, once again it's going to be a matter of......there's always next season.

Vancouver at Nashville

73


The Canucks hope to put an end to a franchise-record scoreless drought tonight when they visit Music City to take on the Nashville Predators.

Forget the fact the Canucks are virtually out of the playoff race. Forget the fact they are riding a season-high five-game losing streak. The only thing that's on their mind as they begin tonight's game should be pushing a puck past the goal line and into a cage with a 72-by-48 inch opening – something they haven't done in eight days since Henrik Sedin beat Colorado's Semyon Varlamov in the first period of an eventual 3-1 loss.

The offence could get a boost tonight with the return of Jannik Hansen but, unfortunately, that may come at the expense of another top point-getter in Sven Baertschi who is questionable after blocking a shot in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Jets. Daniel Sedin is also a question mark after he left practice early yesterday. Yannick Weber is a possibility to return after missing the last four games with an upper-body injury.

The shutout streak is over with Horvat's goal at 6:52 of the 1st.
Total shutout time was 234:52 minutes.

Well if all 3 clubs have lots of future potential then perhaps in a couple of seasons we'll be battling for #1 spot in the division rather than who gets #1 draft pick this season :twisted:

Vancouver at St Louis

74


After breaking a long goal-less drought last night in Nashville, the Canucks turn their attention to snapping a goal-less streak of another variety when they visit the St. Louis Blues.

It's a good thing the Canucks finally found the scoresheet last night in their 3-2 shootout loss to the Predators because had they failed to do so, taking on the Blues – who come into tonight's contest riding back-to-back shutouts – might seem an even more daunting task than it already is. Despite earning a point against a playoff-bound team yesterday, the Canucks' winless skid has now reached a season-high six games. They have not gone seven straight games without a win since dropping seven consecutive regulation outings from January 27 to February 8, 2014.

Barring potentially having Derek Dorsett, who is on the trip, returning tonight, it's likely the Canucks will go with the same line-up as they did last night with the exception of continuing their routine of alternating netminders meaning Jacob Markstrom will get back between the pipes. Brian Elliott, who blanked the Canucks six nights ago at Rogers Arena, will get a chance to go for his third shutout in a row tonight.
