A "Get 'Er Done" Game Recap ( 5-2 W )

The Canucks came into their home ice match up against one of the NHL's worst in need of a win. Or a goal, a goal on home ice would be nice... Some were calling it ( OK, no one, I made that up ) the "Curse of Luongo's Hurt Feelings", or a similar sentiment was being espoused amongst some of the Twitterati. Not scoring since that game on home ice, when the fans gave Lui his proper sendoff, was troubling.  It kind of eats into the win column when you can't put the biscuit in the basket.  Never  mind what it does to the bottom line when you can't entertain the home fans with a goal or...

Game 47 Recap: Jackets Fall to Panthers

A back and forth game, with the Panthers getting the win on a questionable goal. The Jackets and Panthers are well-matched, with both teams playing a gritty, hard-working style. The previous two games between these two clubs were one-goal victories for the Jackets, and they were looking to sweep the season series tonight in Sunrise. It was Curtis McElhinney opposite Roberto Luongo between the pipes, and both goalies were tested early and often. The pace of the game was quite fast, with lots of end-to-end action. Corey Tropp, seeing time on a scoring line with Jeremy Morin out, was doing...

Cannon Blasts - January 29, 2015

Lots to get to after the All-Star Weekend. Hint - there's a few things on Joey. Welcome to a post-ASG edition of Cannon Blasts.  Hopefully you have recovered from the festivities and got a chance to enjoy a few things in Columbus (or on television at the very least).  A LOT of links today, let's hit it. Rick Gethin (FSO) writes that Foligno and Johansen served themselves well as ambassadors for Columbus and the Blue Jackets organization. Joey writes a Thank You to the fans. The cannon got a workout on Sunday, and many were none too pleased.  By the way, Luongo and Brian Elliott were...

PANTHERS NOT PANICKING: Florida veterans try to right ship during season-long losing streak ... Petrovic called up, Thornton returns ... Luongo expected back v Columbus

TWITTER: @GeorgeRichards One reason Florida general manager Dale Tallon brought in established veteran players with championship credentials this offseason was evident on Wednesday morning. As the team stretched on the BB&T Center ice, Derek MacKenzie cracked jokes as Willie Mitchell,...

Panthers' Aaron Ekblad collects four assists in All-Star debut

Cats' rookie phenom dishes out four helpers; Luongo stops 13 shots in Columbus As per usual, there was an utter lack of defense, hitting, and drama in the latest installment of the NHL ALL-Star Game. New York Islanders sniper John Tavares bagged four goals to power Team Toews past Team Foligo by a 17-12 count in a tilt more akin to my Sunday street hockey outings than to an actual pro hockey game. The teams combined for a staggering 92 shots and the 29 goals set a new record. Despite suiting up for the losing side, Blue Jacket forward Ryan Johansen was named MVP, much to the delight of the...

ALL-STAR TWEETING: Roberto Luongo makes most of vantage point on bench as Team Toews tops Foligno 17-12 in defenseless exhibition ... Ekblad notches four assists

TWITTER: @GeorgeRichards COLUMBUS, Ohio -- After giving up four goals in the opening period Sunday, Roberto Luongo spent the rest of the game on the bench. He wasn't sulking mind you. Just tweeting. Luongo's first period was actually one of...

Roberto Luongo has earned respect and friendships from fellow All-Stars

Roberto Luongo was a fresh-faced 22-year-old in the midst of his third NHL season, second for the Panthers, when he participated in the defunct Young Stars game as part of the 2002 All-Star weekened in Los Angeles.

LBC's 2015 NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft Open Thread

A last-minute addition, Ekblad joins Luongo in repping the Cats Sunday; will they play on same team? Bare-bones Open Thread minimalism on a lovely Friday evening in SoFla. So Aaron Ekblad will join Roberto Luongo for Sunday's main event of the weekend, giving us reason to watch for something other than Lou's allotted single period. What is this carnival side show tonight, you ask? From the league... A puck will be flipped to determine which team is awarded the first overall selection, with Captains Foligno and Toews, joined by their Assistant Captains, alternately drafting the 36...

Hyde: A changed Luongo back in All-Star Game

The other day, Roberto Luongo came across a video from maybe a decade ago, from his first stint with the Panthers, and was struck by the goaltender he saw. The excessive movement. The reliance on reflexes. Who was that?

Losing streak hits four as Canucks top Panthers 2-1

Post Winnipeg malaise continues as Cats head to the All-Star Break on a sour note. The fading Florida Panthers dropped their fourth straight game, and third in a row at the BB&T Center, falling to the Vancouver Canucks by a 2-1 count last night in front of 9,373 souls in Sunrise. Don't be fooled by the final score, if not for Roberto Luongo, who finished with 21 saves, this game would have been a complete laugher and over after the first twenty minutes. The Canucks outshot Florida 13-6 in the opening period, scored twice and could have easily had three or four more goals if not for...
