Canucks still seeking best combinations up front with offence sputtering

  Canucks still seeking best combinations up front with offence sputtering With the Canucks’ forward corps looking decidedly lacklustre through two games — Elias Pettersson and Brock Boeser included — head coach Travis Green threw his lines in a blender to try to find the most dangerous fit. The post Ranking the five best draft picks in Vancouver Canucks history appeared first on Sportsnet.ca.Promised during his initial meeting with Canuck general manager Jim Benning and coach Travis Green that Ferland would get to play on the top line if he chose to come to Vancouver, the 27-year-old winger made it clear to everyone that the chance to skate alongside young stars Pettersson and Boeser closed the deal.

Bo Horvat matched his career high with four points and the Canucks scored five goals in the 2 nd period in an 8- 5 win against the Bruins.

DETROIT — It was there for the taking. So they took it. Eventually.

There was good reason to scramble for the media guide because the Vancouver Canucks were going to top the struggling Red Wings on Tuesday.

They would finish this telling trip with a 3-1 record to string together an impressive seven-game run with a 6-1 record. That hasn’t been equalled since the NHL club ran off six-straight wins before a Jan. 7, 2017 loss.

And because the Red Wings had lost four straight, were operating at 9.5 per cent on the power play, couldn’t win a face-off and had but one goal in each of their previous three outings, they were supposed to go quietly into the night.

After all, the Canucks held an early 8-1 shot advantage. Quinn Hughes had two chances on the first power play and it seemed like a matter of time before they would add to the Wings’ agony.

However, the real pain was from self-inflicted wounds as the Canucks surrendered 5-on-3 and 4-on-3 goals, but the cure would be the power play.

Here’s what we learned as the Canucks dug a two-goal hole. They got the winner on Jake Virtanen’s first goal of the season in the third period before Tim Schaller added the insurance marker and Bo Horvat capped his first hat-trick outing with an empty-netter in a 5-2 triumph:

Ed Willes: Canucks have no regrets passing torch to new captain Horvat

  Ed Willes: Canucks have no regrets passing torch to new captain Horvat Now in his 12th NHL season, Jay Beagle has long been identified as a leader and for a player of his ilk, there’s no higher compliment. But, without much prompting, Beagle will tell you not all leaders are created equally, that teams need an alpha dog, a voice that cuts through the noise of the locker room and provides a clear and coherent direction. Last season, the Canucks didn’t have that voice. As of Wednesday night they do. That represents a massive change for this franchise, and while there’s a good chance the Canucks aren’t going to win every game 8-2 with Bo Horvat as their captain, you have to admit, the timing of the two developments is at least intriguing.

Horvat is starting to hone in

Bo Horvat has been a beast in the face-off circle and leads the league in man-advantage draws won.

He was also the reason the Canucks were able to climb out of a hole in the third period. On a night where it looked like the centre couldn’t buy a goal — he was around the net and was thwarted on a first period ripper off a Hughes feed — he finished this trip with an exclamation mark.

The empty-netter was icing on the cake.

Both efforts were the Bo of old — or at least the guy who had a career season in 2018-19 — because the centre got position on a pair of power plays. On the first effort, the Hughes shot found traffic and Elias Pettersson shuffled the puck toward the net. That’s when Horvat quickly went forehand to backhand.

Canucks' Markstrom granted leave of absence, expected back on weekend

  Canucks' Markstrom granted leave of absence, expected back on weekend The Vancouver Canucks have granted netminder Jacob Markstrom a leave of absence to tend to a family matter, general manager Jim Benning announced Monday. Markstrom is expected to rejoin the club on the road this weekend against either the New Jersey Devils or the New York Rangers. The 29-year-old puck-stopper has had a strong start to the campaign, collecting a pair of wins with a 2.23 goals-against average and a .926 save percentage over four starts.Vancouver will lean on backup Thatcher Demko as Markstrom is likely to miss at least two games this week. The Canucks host the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday before heading to St. Louis for a date with the Blues on Thursday.

WOO WHAT A GAME! The Canucks just played a very entertaining game against the Pittsburgh Penguins and Brock Boeser got a hat - trick and 4 points. Horvat also

25 of Horvat ' s goals have come on the power play. JT Miller notched two of the Canucks power play goals, becoming the first player to do so since Brock Boeser accomplished the feat on Jan. During a pre-game ceremony on Oct. 9, the Vancouver Canucks announced Bo Horvat as the 14th

Then, less than two minutes later, he got to the net again and his deft deflection of a Hughes point shot — down and past Jimmy Howard — made it 2-2.

Horvat acknowledged there’s a different feel about this team.

“There is,” he said. “We’re confident and we know what it takes and and have a lot of guys who have won.”

The Mighty Quinn is salvation

Hughes admitted he was feeling fatigued in the third period Sunday as the Rangers stormed to the attack to try and score the equalizer. It was the rookie’s third game in four night and the back-to-back test was tough.

And whether it was an off day Monday, or just youthful exuberance, he was more than noticeable Tuesday. Hughes has not only established himself as the deceptive quarterback and triggerman on the first power-play unit, he didn’t take long to prove it.

On an early advantage, he put a wrist shot off the post and then his half-slapper got through traffic and a forced Howard to make a pad save.

The post Nick Nurse wasn’t expecting opening night to be so emotional appeared first on Sportsnet.ca.So there were lots of Horvats and Hugheses in the crowd Tuesday at Little Caesars Arena, where it looked like there was more than just one Bo Horvat and one Quinn Hughes on the ice for the Vancouver Canucks.

However, it’s his ability to walk the line and wheel with sublime edge work that creates problems for the opposition. He started the sequence on Horvat’s first of two power-play goals and then let a slapper go that Horvat deflected.

“You feel more comfortable as you go, but as comfortable as you feel, it’s still fast and hard and the word I’ve been thinking about is urgency. You can’t lose that. That’s the biggest thing for me, especially in the D-zone.”

No answer for hot-shot Mantha

Anthony Mantha has been the only offensive bright spot for the Wings and he took seven goals into Tuesday.

It didn’t take long to see why the first-liner is quickly pushing toward double-digit goals. It wasn’t just that he took a cross-ice feed on a two-man advantage in the first period —   Brock Boeser’s high stick on Frans Nielsen put the winger in the box for four minutes – and drilled a one-timer past Jacob Markstrom on the stick side.

It’s the manner in which the right winger sprung away in the second period and tried to go 5-hole on Markstrom. And it was how Markstrom had to get post-to-post in a hurry to be denied on another power play late in the second period that would have put the game away.

Patrick Johnston: Canucks' offensive prowess driven by smart defenders

  Patrick Johnston: Canucks' offensive prowess driven by smart defenders It’s not a big surprise that a team that’s getting good goaltending and makes noise in the offensive zone is having success. So, yes, through nine games of the 2019-20 season, the Vancouver Canucks have been worth the price of admission. Their playing style hasn’t been perfect — and they’ve mostly faced middling opposition — but there are good numbers there. Top of the list has been their share of overall shot attempts per game. After five seasons where the Canucks’ opponents averaged more shot attempts than them, they’ve reversed that trend this year.

With the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings at risk of both missing the playoffs for the same time for the first time since 1968, it’ s tough not to ruminate on the After collecting an empty-netter in the closing moments, Alex DeBrincat collected a hat trick , likely inspiring a lot of “DeBrinhat” jokes.

Mantha had nine shots and 11 attempts and the Wings spelled much-needed momentum M-a-n-t-h-a.

Fourth line drew another tough test

The Wings had last change on home ice and their first thought was to get Dylan Larkin and the first line out against the Tim Schaller-Jay-Beagle-Tyler Motte alignment. They hemmed in the big line and then came back with another dominant match-up shift.
