Is this the year for the Vancouver Canucks? After coming up short last year to win the Stanley Cup for the third time in franchise history, the Canucks is looking for another shot at the title this season. The other time that the Canucks got so close in winning the title was during the 1981-1982 and 1993-1994 seasons. Owners of Vancouver Canucks tickets have been waiting for more than four decades for their team to finally get over the hump. This year seems to be a special one for the boys from Rogers Arena.
Currently, the Presidents’ Trophies winner last season has a 32 wins, 16 losses, and five overtime losses record this season. The record puts them second in the Western Conference and first in the Northwest Division. Owners of Vancouver Canucks tickets have been treated by their team with good games every time they play in Rogers Arena. The Canucks have a 15-6-4 record at home. On the road it has been another solid year for the reigning Western Conference champions. Their record away from home is at a steady 17-9-1 record. If the playoffs started today, they would be going up against the Los Angeles Kings who clearly has their numbers in terms of the season series. After winning their first meeting November, the Canucks have been beaten in the ensuing meetings in December and January. With another matchup in March, the Canucks look to tie the season series and have some kind of momentum in case they face each other in the playoffs.
Vancouver has 30 remaining games on their schedule, 16 of those games at home. Despite having more remaining home games on their schedule, it would be a tough task for the eight-time Division champs. In the 30 games, 23 matches would be against quality teams from both conferences. Out of the 30 remaining games in the schedule, 25 games would be versus Western Conference teams.
The good season of Vancouver can be reflected on their statistics. Their goals per game of 3.1 puts them at 3rd place in the entire National Hockey League while their 2.4 goals against is 7th in the league. The team’s 22.3 power play percentage statistic, on the other hand, is 1st in the league. The Canucks’ penalty kill percentage of 85.6 is 6th overall.
Team veteran Henrik Sedin is once again leading his team not just in points but in the overall leadership as well. His 55 points puts him 4th in the league trailing Evgeni Malkin, Claude Giroux, and Steven Stamkos. The Canucks would once again be leaning on the services of the 10-year veteran who was a first round pick by the team back in 1999.
During last season’s Stanley Cup finals, Vancouver collapsed after they led 3-2 in the title series. They had two opportunities to win it all but squandered the opportunities given to them. The Game 7 loss on their home floor sparked riots and looting in downtown Vancouver. Having that so close to the title, it would be really disappointing for the team’s fans.
