The Vancouver Canucks and their fans have never been privy to a more consistently successful, entertaining and downright compelling hockey club than the one that Mike Gillis stewarded. No matter how the numbers are sliced, the Canucks need Chris Tanev to return to form after a down year.

The Vancouver Canucks have sent Brock Boeser back to Vancouver to see a specialist, the team confirmed Thursday.

Boeser missed Tuesday's contest against the Detroit Red Wings - the first leg of his team's current six-game road trip - with a groin injury.

The 21-year-old will miss Thursday's matchup with the Boston Bruins, but the Canucks haven't ruled out the possibility of Boeser re-joining at some point during their current road swing, which won't conclude until next Thursday.

"He's gotten better, but he isn't over the hump yet," head coach Travis Green said.

Boeser had begun to turn things around after a slow start to the season, notching two goals and four points against the Colorado Avalanche on Friday.

Getzlaf propels Ducks past Canucks 4-3, ending 3-game skid.
ANAHEIM, Calif. - Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and an assist, John Gibson made 25 saves and the Anaheim Ducks snapped a three-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory over the skidding Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday night. Ondrej Kase, Adam Henrique and Kalle Kossila also scored for the Ducks, who had lost 12 of 15 since the last time they scored four goals in a game back on Oct. 17. Bo Horvat, Derrick Pouliot and Jake Virtanen scored in the Canucks' seventh consecutive loss. Jacob Markstrom stopped 32 shots as Vancouver failed to rally from a late two-goal deficit and remained winless since Nov. 8.
