Well that was some game, right? I haven’t watched it yet, but I’m looking forward to doing so. A rare Canucks shutout win - that takes some beating.

  • Game Summary from our SB Nation cousins at Five For Howling. You have to feel sorry for them - Ekman-Larsson is going to be 35 before they’re playoff ready. [Five For Howling]
  • Give the man a letter, right now:
  • He continues to move up the scoring charts - after his assist last night, only four players in NHL history now have more assists than Jaromir Jagr. [The Score]
  • Another NHL legend passed away this week - Milt Schmidt, a Bruins legend who won two Cups as a player and two more as a GM. NM’s thoughts are with his loved ones. [NHL]
  • Turns out the kid is not so nice after all:
  • In looking at Cats On The Prowl, I noticed this story from New Years’ Day about the McCann-Gudbranson trade. Some very interesting points in here, take a look. [Cats On The Prowl]
  • No-one has made a serious offer for Martin Hanzal. Anyone here surprised? The only team he’d fit on is the Bruins, where meatheads go to escape disciplinary proceedings. [AZ Central]
  • Here’s your daily blowing-smoke-up-Auston-Matthews’-backside piece. [NHL]


Question of the day: Which Canucks player would you name your new puppy after?
