1. After a disappointing loss in Boston on Wednesday (seriously, what else is new these days), the Canucks faced the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night which means, you guessed it, Roberto Luongo vs. Carey Price.  Aren't these two goalies heading to Sochi to represent Team Canada, or something? Word on the street I hear, anyway.

    This will be Price's first Olympic appearance, but not Luongo's. Ho ho, not Luongo's.
  2. #neverforget

    Unfortunate Henrik Sedin news though, as it was confirmed that not only would he not be playing the remainder two games before the Olympics, but he wouldn't be representing Team Sweden at all.  Huge loss for the Canucks and Sweden, but hopefully Henrik returns to form when the Olympics are over. 

     ANYWAY, Thursday's game was the second to last game for the Canucks before the Olympic break and marked Raphael Diaz's return to Montreal just a couple of days after being traded to Vancouver. Of course, it also meant Dale Weise faced his former team for the first time.

    The Canucks walked away from Montreal with 0 points, just like they did their previous 5 games. What else is there to say to that other than the last month and a half of the Canucks' season has been a little disappointing?  And when I say a little, I mean a lot.  
  3. The first shot of the hockey game came form former Canuck, Dale Weise. Raise your hand if you expected that.
  4. Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?  That's what I thought.
  5. Ryan Kesler took a hooking penalty against Tomas Plekanec. Plekanec sold an Olympic dive and it paid off because PK Subban scored against his future Team Canada mate. 
  6. Not longer after, Ryan White scored his first goal of the season to give the Habs a 2-0 lead. Stop me if you've heard this one before.
