-"I have had bounces, I have been consistent and everything has worked out this year. It's a bonus if it happens, but it's not really anything I walk around thinking about." - Henrik Sedin via the Vancouver Sun. Can I call bullshit on that one? The Sedins watch stats, they have admitted it before. Either way, go Hank go! The Canucks have not had a 100-point scorer since Markus Naslund in the 2003-03 season.

-Ian Clark, goaltending coach for the Canucks, arrived in Vancouver on Thursday from Dallas, where he has been spending most of his time. He will remain with the Canucks from now through the playoffs. This may work wonders for Luongo. Those 2 have a great working relationship.

-Henrik Sedin calls the Canucks-Sharks game a measuring stick. No kidding! Plus, Demitra is still out for personal reasons and Samuelsson is on track with his shoulder injury that he suffered March 16. He was projected to miss 2-3 weeks. He has begun skating. More on all that here.

-The Canucks are 40 years old. Check out some cool historic stuff here.

-Sad. Former Canuck goalie Troy Gamble's 20-year-old son died in Afghanistan recently. Tony Gallagher writes a fitting piece here, including a quote by Gamble: "They had a whole bunch of photos at the memorial service and one of the best ones of his was his first birthday party in Vancouver with him wearing a Canucks jersey and he had a little goal stick in his hand," Gamble remembered. "Those were great days." Edit: Hang in there, Mr. Gamble!"

-Cody Hodgson tied the game late in the 3rd and the Battalion beat the Frontenacs in OT to give Brampton a 3-2 series lead in the OHL playoffs. That's 3 goals and 5 points in 5 games for CoHo in the playoffs.

-Love these peeps, love this site, but I am not in agreement with this.

-In praise of Andrew Raycroft..

-Victoria beats Idaho 1-0 and who scores the only goal? Eric Walksy. (h/t missy)

-Mike Gillis gives Mats Sundin a lot of credit for some of the Canucks' success this season. Why? Because Mats was the professor!
