Canucks recall defenceman Jalen Chatfield from Utica Comets

  Canucks recall defenceman Jalen Chatfield from Utica Comets The Vancouver Canucks have called up defenceman Jalen Chatfield from the Utica Comets of the American Hockey League. The 23-year-old Chatfield, who has not hit the scoresheet once in 11 games with Utica this season, will add some insurance on the Canucks’ blue-line with Chris Tanev questionable for Friday’s game in Winnipeg (5 p.m., SNETP). Canucks Game Day: Jets having a devil of a time, but Hellebuyck props them up Tanev suffered an upper body injury in Thursday’s 5-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. If he’s unable to play Friday, it’s likely that Swedish defenceman Oscar Fantenberg will take his place and make his regular-season debut against the Jets.

WINNIPEG — In their two-game swing through Chicago and Winnipeg, the Vancouver Canucks accomplished something they haven’t done since the first two games of the NHL season.

They lost back-to-back games in regulation time.

Here’s what we learned from Friday’s 4-1 loss to the Jets at Bell MTS Place which dropped the Canucks’ record to 9-5-3:

Better effort comes up short

After an off night in Chicago, the Canucks responded with an improved effort but had the game taken away in the second period and couldn’t beat Jets’ hot goalie Connor Hellebuyck in the third.

Kyle Connor, Jets beat Canucks for the ninth time in a row

  Kyle Connor, Jets beat Canucks for the ninth time in a row WINNIPEG — Speed was the name of the game for the Winnipeg Jets on Friday. Kyle Connor and his teammates cited quick feet as a key reason the Jets handed the Vancouver Canucks their third straight loss with a 4-1 victory. “I think that’s when we’re at our best,” said Connor, who had a goal and an assist. “The hands follow, you start to think the game at a higher pace and you see plays more often, too.” Jack Roslovic, Mark Scheifele and Adam Lowry, with an empty-net goal, also scored for the Jets (9-7-1), who have points in their last four games (3-0-1).Connor Hellebuyck made 32 saves for Winnipeg, which has won nine consecutive games against the Canucks.

Something good did happen, as the power play scored the first of four unanswered goals, helping the Winnipeg Jets to a 4 - 1 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night. Video: POSTGAME | Paul Maurice. The difference in the team's play on the man advantage in Maurice's mind was confidence.

What we need is better officiating overall. Instead of trying to put in place ways to review the poor calls, we should strive to eliminate

Bo Horvat had the Canucks best chance in the final frame but failed to get the puck over an outstretched Hellebuyck with six minutes left in the game.

Shortly after that superb save, Kyle Connor stole the puck from Tyler Myers at the Jets’ blueline and beat Thatcher Demko on a breakaway.

Jake Virtanen also had a clean look earlier in the third when the score was still 2-1 and the Canucks squandered a late power play without producing a scoring chance.

Adam Lowry added an empty-netter for the Jets.

“I’d like to have that one back,” said Horvat. “He made a heckuva save off me. If I bury that one it’s 2-2. It’s frustrating but I thought we did some really good things tonight.”

That sentiment was echoed by Canucks’ head coach Travis Green.

Canucks recall road warrior Ashton Sautner

  Canucks recall road warrior Ashton Sautner Less than a week after he was returned to the Utica Comets, Ashton Sautner is coming back to the NHL. The defenceman was recalled by the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday, ahead of the team heading out for a three-game road trip to California. Sautner, presumably, will fly direct to Los Angeles, where the Canucks face the Kings on Wednesday evening. He has already been recalled once this season, before the Canucks’ previous road trip, a four-game jaunt to the east coast. That was because Oscar Fantenberg was unavailable due to illness.

The Canucks are 0-2- 1 in their past three games. " I liked our game a lot more than I did (against Chicago)," Canucks coach Travis Green said. Right winger Blake Wheeler played center on the second line between Ehlers and Roslovic, while Scheifele was in the middle of Connor and Patrik Laine.

Vancouver outshot the Jets 13-9 in the first frame, which included an early scare when Ehlers was Vancouver goes home for four straight games starting Sunday against New Jersey. BOXSCORE: Jets 4 , Canucks 1 . Winnipeg Jets' Bryan Little suffers perforated ear drum after puck to the head .

“That game could have gone either way,” Green insisted. “There are probably games earlier we would have won with that kind of game or get a point. That’s the ebbs and flows of he NHL.”

Jets ‘juiced’ on power play

The Jets erased a 1-0 Canucks advantage with a dominating second period, outshooting the Canucks 19-9 while taking the lead with a pair of goals. Mark Scheifele gave the Jets the lead when he picked up a rebound on Connor’s shot on a play that started with Tanner Pearson’s turnover in the neutral zone. Earlier, Jack Roslovic scored on the second of back-to-back Jets’ power plays when he converted his own rebound.

Those power plays changed the complexion of the game, according to Green.

“Give them credit,” said Green. “They got a lot of momentum off the power play. They got a little juice off it. I thought for seven minutes the game was going their way. Then in the third period we had our looks.”

Devils score two quick goals, hold on to beat Canucks 2-1

  Devils score two quick goals, hold on to beat Canucks 2-1 VANCOUVER — The New Jersey Devils scored goals 22 seconds apart in the first period then used some key stops by goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood to defeat the Vancouver Canucks 2-1 Sunday.

Just before Roslovic’s goal, Canucks’ defenceman Chris Tanev blocked a Patrik Laine slapshot and had to be helped off ice. The veteran blueliner missed a handful of shifts but was back before the end of the period. Thursday in Chicago he missed the final two periods of a 5-2 loss with an undisclosed upper-body injury.

“The leg went numb for a bit,” Tanev said. “I came in, saw the doc and he gave me the green light. It’s hockey. Everyone does it.”

Well, not everyone.

“Nothing (Tanev) does surprises me,” Green said. “He’s a warrior. He has to be hurt really badly, something broken to keep him out.”

Miller nets eighth goal

J.T. Miller opened the scoring for the Canucks early in the second with his eighth goal of the season.

Elias Pettersson started the play off the rush in the Canucks’ end and Brock Boeser eventually picked out Troy Stecher with a cross-ice pass. Miller deflected Stecher’s diagonal pass behind Hellebuyck.

The Canucks outshot the Jets 13-9 in the first period.

“I like our game a lot more than I did in (Chicago),” Green said.

Baertschi makes his debut

Sven Baertschi made his first start of the season, playing on a line with Bo Horvat and Jake Virtanen. The line produced 10 shots in the game and Baertschi was in the middle of a good scoring chance for Pettersson early in the third.

VANCOUVER - A better effort produced the same the result for the Vancouver The game marked the regular-season return of Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault to Rogers Arena. The Canucks honoured Vigneault on the videoboard during that game, but did not pay tribute to their former coach

“Not bad,” Green said of Baertschi’s game. “He had his looks.”

Baertschi, of course, cleared waivers before the start of the regular season and was sent to Utica where he had 10 points in seven games with the AHL Comets.

The slick Swiss forward was recalled more than a week ago.

“It’s always a dose of reality when you go through waivers,” Green said before the game. “You feel bad for guys and I felt bad for him. We had to make hard decisions. You never like to see guys go through hard times but that’s part of the NHL.”

Myers returns to Manitoba

Myers played his first game in Winnipeg after signing a five-year, US$30-million deal with the Canucks this off-season. Myers spent five-plus seasons with the Jets.

“It’s a little weird but I’m excited,” Myers said before the game. “I’ve got a lot of friends over there. We’ll put that hold on for 60 minutes and I’ll say hi to them after the game.

“I have a lot of good memories playing in Winnipeg, stuff I’ll never forget, but I’m excited about this new chapter.”

The Jets honoured him with a brief video near the end of the first period.

LISTEN:

This week both Canucks beat writers Patrick Johnston and Ben Kuzma join Paul Chapman to talk all things Canucks. Starting with the team’s performance on the ice, the topic is the versatility of the Canucks and how they have so far exhibited the ability to outscore teams, or play a tough, physical and “heavy” game against quality teams like the Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues.

The impact of Quinn Hughes is also discussed, along with the balanced contribution the team is getting so that when one player goes cold, there has been another one there to step up. It’s not all great news as the podcast discusses possible red flags and pitfalls for the team as they get deeper into the season.

With the ESPN NHL player survey coming out this week, and rubbishing Edmonton and Winnipeg as cities players hate to go to, Ben and Patrick tell us which cities they love or hate to visit on the road, and why.

The podcast finishes with more travel talk as Patrick tells us the travails of losing your passport whilst in the midst of a road trip in California last week.
