I Watched This Game: Canucks at Columbus Blue Jackets

Putting an end to a losing streak is rarely pretty, and last night’s win over the Blue Jackets was hardly a work of art (Raymond’s goal excluded). Daniel Wagner takes us through the Canucks shootout win in Columbus.

Mason Raymond’s shootout winner revives spin-o-rama debate

Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards was none too happy after Mason Raymond’s spinning winner in the shootout last night. Harrison Mooney delves into the topic one more time.

David Booth has been performing well even in results don’t show it

Whoever cursed David Booth sure knows what they are doing, the guy can’t catch a break, but don’t blame David for his lack of goal scoring says Cam Charron.

Luongo steps up to backstop big win

Roberto Luongo got the call in net as the Canucks revenged last week’s loss to Columbus. The Canuck goalie made 26 saves for his first win in two weeks.

Rapid Fire

- Brendan Gaunce has his Belleville Bulls in first place of the OHL’s Eastern Conference and will try to extend that lead against the Oshawa Generals tonight. The Bull’s captain has 55 points in 57 games this season.

- Canuck defensive prospects, Frank Corrado and Evan McEneny, face off against the Guelph Storm tonight as the Kitchener Rangers attempt to revenge last week’s 6-4 loss. The two d-men combined for 3 points in the loss.

- Meanwhile, over in Sweden, 2011 draft pick, Henrik Tommernes and his Frolunda club face off against Lulea in SEL playoff action.
