Power Rankings
Eddie Lack has started the past 18 games for the Canucks as they have desperately stayed alive in the playoff race, barely. One more loss and they can see what they have in Jacob Markstrom.
The Canucks were making one last gasp for the playoffs but a pair of losses to end the week takes the wind out of those sails. A four-point deficit with six games left? Good luck.
The Canucks need a sticker: Objects in the mirror are farther than they appear. They are only three points out of a playoff spot but have fewer games left than any team.
The Canucks have been rather terrible for a while but credit for rebounding from that brutal loss to the Isles with two wins in three road games. They still have a pulse. Barely.
Dear Mike Gillis: Unless things get turned around soon, you and maybe even John Tortorella are going to feel a lot of heat. Two wins in the past 10 won't cut it. Signed, the Canucks.
Things better turn around soon for the Canucks or there is going to be real turmoil. They did beat the Blues upon returning but have earned only three of the last 20 points. Woof.
If any team needs a couple of weeks to regroup, it's the Canucks. They have lost seven straight -- all in regulation -- and have just one regulation win in the past 14 games. Ouch.
John Tortorella probably won't be too pleased when he is back with the Canucks, losers of three straight and four of five. Vancouver's (and LA's) slip has allowed teams to regain hope.
No Torts but the Canucks still win two of three games, albeit none against teams in playoff position. The offensive outburst Sunday was more than welcome no matter the opponent.
The Canucks have had better weeks. They were throttled by the Ducks, have been racking up penalties like they're going out of style and are just 2-5-3 in the past 10.
Preseason Power Rankings
OK, so the competition was the Oilers and Flames, but the Canucks put up 11 goals in the past two. Who says Torts' teams don't score?
