Price stayed in the game after the shot, and the Habs went on to lose to the Philadelphia Flyers. He now appears to be injured. This news broke just a day after Pat Hickey reported Shea Weber has been shut down for the season. Again. There is n...

Did Canucks Miss Their Chance to Deal Nilsson?

Goaltender Anders Nilsson’s has played eleven consecutive periods for the Vancouver Canucks. For the most part, Nilsson has dominated, making big save after big save.

"The best movies are on late at night. Flip the channel or you go on Netflix or one of those things and pull up 'Philadelphia Story,' or one of those, and you realize why they still hold up and why they're really the best. I was watching 'Carnal Knowledge' the other night, which was made in the '70s. When you go back and watch these films, the reason they were the best was because they were doing it first. There's this great sense of joy."
