The Canucks defeated the St Louis Blues 5-1, bringing their record to 6-1-1 for their last 8 games and 3-1-0 on this home stand. Horvat opened the scoring in the 2nd period while on the PP, his 17th of the season. Adam Gaudette scored his 2nd of the season just 28 seconds later, giving the team a 2-0 lead going into the third. Leivo scored his 8th from behind the goalline with a carom off the Blues' goalie's shoulder followed by the Blues only score of the game. Virtanen scored his 11th followed by Eriksson scoring his 7th into an empty net. The Blues outshot the Canucks 30-29 and were held scoreless on their 3 PPs while the Canucks went 1/2 on their PPs. Vancouver next hosts the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday before getting a much needed 4 full days of rest over Christmas, not playing again until they start a 6 game road trip in Edmonton on the 27th.

There's this YouTuber I get a kick out of so I thought I'd share.

He's an 18 year old of Filipino heritage and he loves his hockey. Also his Vancouver Canucks.

When I started listening to him he was still in high school.

He's such a super-fan he's a hoot. Sign him up Sportsnet. Here he is covering last night's game:

Good game for the hopeful.

Ok we lost 1-0 but we had enough defence to do it and Markstrom was playing like a # 1 goaltender. He has been for awhile. Hope he can keep it up.

I'm mad at Scheifele today because he scored for Winnipeg with 92 seconds left to play but I plan to be his fan again this playoffs when he'll become one of my favourite players again.

Unless they're playing the Canucks, of course. Hopefully it will be Toronto. :lol:

Here's one that put smiles on the faces of the Canucks fans who were there.

I imagine you've heard our biggest hope in the prospects pool right now is Benning's # 1 pick in last year's draft, Quinn Hughes.

He's a smallish, slight, quick, highly skilled, offensive defensive defenceman. His brother Jack is slated to go first in this summer's NHL draft in Vancouver.

Both Hughes brothers are playing for Team America in the current World Juniors tournament that's happening in and around Vancouver.

Last night, in Langley, the US was playing the Czech Republic. The Czechs were getting nasty. One of them cheap-shotted Jack. Jack's big brother Quinton, who isn't actually that big, responded. Got kicked off the ice by the refs.

The crowd went nuts cheering him off! [cheer] [cheer] [cheer]

First period goals by Motte(6), Boeser(13), Pettersson(18), and Roussel(4) was all it took to give the Canucks the 4-2 win over the Oilers. The Oilers outshot Vancouver 32-20 and scored twice while on the PP, going 2/3 for the game while the Canucks went 0/1. This was the first time in the last 10 games where the Canucks have given up a PP goal. Their next game will be Saturday when the team visits Calgary.

Vancouver at Calgary

Canucks (18-18-4) at Flames (23-12-3)

Forward Sven Baertschi and defenseman Troy Stecher are both expected to return to the lineup when the Vancouver Canucks play the Calgary Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome on Saturday.

Baertschi, who has six points (three goals, three assists) in 10 games, has missed the past 30 games because of a concussion sustained against the Vegas Golden Knights on Oct. 24.

Vancouver is 7-2-1 in its past 10 games after having one win in its previous 13 (1-10-2). The Canucks have allowed two goals or fewer in seven of their past nine games.

Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom is 7-1-0 with a 1.63 goals against average and .943 save percentage in his past eight games.

Forward Adam Gaudette was sent to Utica of the American Hockey League to make room for Baertschi on the roster.

Pettersson has 16 points (five goals, 11 assists) in his past 11 games.

Horvat has seven points (three goals, four assists) in his past seven games.

Sounds like Sven's concussion was much more serious than Troy's.

Utica will be happy to get Adam Gaudette back but what they really need are defensemen. Massive injuries down there on defence, I hear. Getting harder for them to win.

And the injured are all the guys we need in reserve who can move up. Don't get injured tonight anybody on Canuck's defense.

Calgary is playing so good lately...this one's scary.

Boeser opened the scoring with his 14th while on the PP followed by Calgary tying the score 1-1 with a SH goal. The Flames then took the lead in the 2nd period with their 2nd SH goal of the game. Pettersson then scored his 19th to tie the score 2-2 going into the 3rd period. With no scoring in the 3rd the game goes to OT tied 2-2. The Canucks then win it with Edler scoring his 4th at 3:06 into OT. Calgary outshot the Canucks 33-27 and were held to 0/5 on the PP with Vancouver going 1/4 while on their PPs although they did give up 2 SH goals. The Canucks next play on Monday with a visit to the New Jersey Devils with a 10:00am PT start time.

That was an entertaining game to watch. Too bad about the 2 SH goals we gave up but the result was good anyway.

Saturday's game in Calgary marked the halfway point in the Canucks' season. Their record for their last 10 games is 7-2-1 and with a record of 19-18-4 the team is in the 18th spot in the standings with 42 points and are in the 5th spot in the Pacific division. Thanks to a nine game streak where they didn't give up a PP goal they now sit in 19th place in penalty kills. When it comes to the PP the Canucks are now sitting in 20th place. In scoring, Elias Pettersson is in the 33rd spot, Horvat is at #51 and Boeser is in at #101. Elias Pettersson also leads in the Rookie division with 39 points, 19 goals and 20 assists, 1st in all categories even with him having played only 35 games due to injuries, he has also 6 game winning goals, far more than any other rookie. Bo Horvat and Elias Pettersson are #41 and #42 in PP goals with 5 each. When it comes to penalty time Antoine Roussel is tied for the #1 spot with Brad Marchand at 78 minutes.

Monday sees the start the 2nd half of the season when they play the NJ Devils at 10:00 am PT.
