About Rink Wide: Vancouver
The Canucks bounce back after a loss to Vegas with a 4-3 win over division rivals, the Cagary Flames. Captain Quinn opened the scoring and set the tone with a goal, followed by a big night from Ilya Mikayev. Nikita Zadorov assisted on the game winning goal in his first game as a Canuck to help bury his old team. Jeff Paterson and Blake Price host. Canucks 4 (23 SOG) Flames 3 (22 SOG)
Vegas baby, Vegas!!! Unfortunately it was ALL Vegas on this night in Vancouver. The Canucks were just not up to the test against the defending Stanley Cup champions and current Western Conference leaders. Demko stopped 41 of 45 shots to hold up his end of the bargain, but there was just no offense to be found in a game where Pettersson had zero shot attempts in the entire game. Zero. Are we still saying there's nothing bothering EP40? Jeff Paterson and Matt Sekeres host. Canucks 1 (22 SOG) Vegas 4 (45 SOG)
The Ducks flew into town to face the Canucks in what was a 'must-win' game for Vancouver in a lot of ways. Thatcher Demko stood tall to keep the Canucks in the game as they were grossly outshot for the first half, but the Boys in Black finally found themselves and picked up the pace in the 3rd period. Captain Quinn's point streak came to an end, but Brock scored twice to pull into sole possession of the NHL scoring lead and to seal the deal on a 3-1 Canucks victory. Jeff Paterson and Irfan Gaffar host. Canucks 3 (27 SOG) Ducks 1 (31 SOG)
The Canucks faced off against the worst team in the league, the SJ Sharks tonight, and lost. Vancouver pushed hard at the end, but it was too little, too late. JT Miller had points on all of the Canucks goals, Hronek with a goal and an assist, Petey managed a point and Captain Quinn tied the all time point streak record for Canucks defensemen set waaaaaaaay back.... last week, by Hronek. Jeff Paterson and David Quadrelli host Canucks 3 (34 SOG) Sharks 4 (22 SOG)
The Canucks looked to bounce back after the loss to Colorado and they did just that, as Dakota Joshua and the bottom 6 led the team with a strong performance and enough depth scoring to carry the team to a 5-1 victory. Quinn and Hoglander both keep their point streaks going, and Thatcher Demko was in fine form on the back end, as always. Jeff Paterson and Harmon Dayal host. Canucks 5 (27 SOG) Kraken 1 (24 SOG)
It was a battle of early season Norris favorites, with Cale Makar and Captain Quinn Hughes going head to head for the first time this season. Both young D men factored into their teams scoring, but in the end, the Avs came out on top 5-2. Jeff Paterson and Blake Price host. Canucks 2 (29 SOG) Avalanche 5 (25 SOG)
The Canucks faced off against the SJ sharks for the second time this month and although they didn't score 10 goals, they did bring home another win. Hoglander got tossed from the game and Captain Quinn moved back to the top of the league scoring race. It didn't have the style points of some of their other wins this season, but the points count just the same. Vancouver wins 3-1. Jeff Paterson and Matt Sekeres host. Canucks 3 (37 SOG) Sharks 1 (28 SOG)
The Canucks fell short against their Pacific foes, the Seattle Kraken tonight. They looked to be a step behind the play all night. Seattle played a solid game and managed to neutralize the big guns of the Canucks for the most part. Hoglander rallied with a goal late in the 3rd, but it wasn't enough, as the Canucks fall 4-3 to the Kraken. Jeff Paterson and Blake Price host. Canucks 3 (23 SOG) Kraken 4 (26 SOG)
Well, you can't win them all. Fatigue may be setting in as the Canucks play in their 4th city in the past week. Hronek's point streak comes to an end at 11, and the big 3 stay tied atop the league point scoring race, as they all get in on the same goal. However, it was not enough to beat Jakob Markstrom and the Calgary Flames, as Elias Lindholm and Jonathan Huberdeau break out of their ice cold start to lead the Flames to a 5-2 victory over the Canucks. Jeff Paterson and Irfaan Gaffar host. Canucks 2 (24 SOG) Flames 5 (39 SOG)
Bo Horvat returned to Vancouver for the first time since the trade, and was greeted to a warm welcome and emotional pre game. Bo scored a goal for his new team and led the Isles to 2 goal leads twice, but on a night that was heavy on special teams, the Canucks stars fought back to take it in overtime on a beauty from Captain Quinn. Hronek quietly tied Dennis Kearns for the longest point streak every by a Canucks defenseman. Jeff Paterson and Matt Sekeres host. Canucks 4 (43 SOG) Islanders 3 (33 SOG)
The Canucks wrap up their East Coast trip in la Bèlle Province to take on the Montreal Canadiens, who are exceeding a lot of peoples expectations thus far this season. Casey DeSmith faced off against the team that he almost played for, before the Canucks picked him up in exchange for Tanner Pearson. DeSmith DeLivered. Connor Garland was the start of the evening, as Petey was held off the scoresheet for the first time in 9 games. Vancouver potted a couple empty netters to seal the deal and walk away with a 5-2 victory. Canucks 5 (37 SOG) Canadiens 2 (32 SOG)
The Canucks head to the center of the universe to take on the Maple Leafs, but fall 5-2 on this night. It was a lackluster performance all around, as the Canucks just couldn't get things going after a couple of 1st period power play goals and gave up 4 straight to Toronto through the last 40 minutes. They will have a chance to put it behind them and bounce back tomorrow night against Montreal. Jeff Paterson and Blake Price host. Canucks 2 (33 SOG) Maple Leafs 5 (22 SOG)
The Vancouver Canucks started their East Coast Canadian road trip with another victory over offensively potent, but defensively struggling Ottawa Senators. Casey DeSmith continued his strong play, even thought the rest of the team didn't have their 'A game' for a lot of the night - take a look at the shot totals below if you want to see for yourself. However, the way things are going for the team this year, Elias Pettersson still gets 3 points, even on an off night and leads the Canucks to a 5-2 win over the Sens, to move to 10-2-1 for the best start in the history of the team. Jeff Paterson and Matt Sekeres host. Canucks 5 (16 SOG) Senators 2 (30 SOG)
The Canucks faced the Oilers for the 3rd time of the season already, and they continue the sweep! A good effort all around, Tyler Myers with another strong game, Demko remains in beast mode, Pettersson takes over sole possession of the scoring race and surprise, surprise... another 4 points for Quinn Hughes. Jeff Paterson and Blake Price host. Canucks 6 (35 SOG) Oilers 2 (42 SOG)
The Canucks were at home to face the Dallas Stars, who are off to an equally hot start this season. It had the potential to be a goaltending duel and it certainly was. Demko with a shutout and a save of the year candidate lead the Canucks to a 2-0 victory which moves the Canucks into second place in the West. Jeff Paterson and Blake Price host. Canucks 2 (28 SOG) Dallas 0 (27 SOG)
The Canucks took a short jaunt down to San Jose to face the winless Sharks and looked to avoid being the first to fall...and oh boy did the boys from Vancouver show up! Captain Quinn put up another 5 pts, to pad his lead in D scoring in the NHL, while Brock, JT, Petey, Hronek all put up strong numbers. Demko lost the shutout in the 3rd on a questionable goal that coach Rick was not going to bother disputing in such a blowout. Canucks come out on top 10-1! hosted by Jeff Paterson and Chris Faber. Canucks 10 (33 SOG) San Jose 1 (30 SOG)
Not a perfect game, but still another 2 points in the bank for the Canucks as they defeat Nashville for the second time this season 5-2 on Halloween night. Petey with a Hatty and Captain Quinn with another 3pts, to go along with a perfect penalty kill. It was enough to come out on top and improve to 6-2-1 to start the season.

The Canucks got off to a quick start as they stopped in Music City to face the Predators.
