Last year, Vancouver Canucks won the President’s Trophies but could not win the most important prize, the Stanley Cup. This year, Vancouver is in contention once again but it won’t be a runaway like last season. They are currently tied with the New York Rangers with 107 points and their remaining three games are really crucial for their possible second straight President’s Trophies. In Vancouver’s remaining games, owners of Vancouver Canucks tickets would still see their team play on their home ice twice before they start the playoffs.
Vancouver had an incredible run last year when they ran away from the competition during the regular season. It seemed like that the Stanley Cup was going to Vancouver when they held a 3-2 series lead over the Boston Bruins in the championship but a collapse in the last two games sealed their fate as runner-up. The Canucks has not won a single Stanley Cup and the Game 7 loss at home certainly did not sit well with their home fans as riots and looting took place in downtown Vancouver. What was also unacceptable was that the Canucks were shut out in that game, 0-4.
In the past weeks, Vancouver has been serious about bagging the President’s Trophies and it has shown in their play lately. The Canucks has won six straight games and they could extend that to nine, since they would be playing only one quality team to wrap up the season.
If the season ended today, Vancouver would be facing the San Jose Sharks, whom they handled this season very well. In their four meetings this season, Vancouver has won three of them by an average of one point.
The Canucks has been on a tear lately but their star player Henrik Sedin has been in quite of slump. The championship hopes of Vancouver relies on Henrik, especially since his twin brother Daniel is sidelined. This same scenario already happened during the 2009-2010 season when Daniel Sedin broke a bone in his foot. Daniel is often the linemate of Henrik and there was a definite concern on how the latter performs in the former’s absence. Henrik was able to rise into the occasion en route to winning two awards, the Art Ross Trophy (most points) and Hart Memorial Trophy (MVP). Daniel is sidelined this season after his head got hit by an elbow of an opposing player. Canucks coach Alain Vigneault sounded very confident about Henrik’s ability to produce like what he did in the past but he has not shown it in the past 18 games. Over that stretch, Henrik has not scored a single goal and owners of Vancouver Canucks tickets is definitely holding their breath on whether the former MVP can break out of the slump.
Despite Henrik’s struggles scoring a goal in the last 18 games, he still remains in the top 10 in terms of points with 78. Henrik made up for his subpar goals scored with his assists. He tops the league with 65 assists. If Vancouver wants to win the whole thing, Henrik needs to shoot more.
