If the Sedins’ careers had to end with a meaningless game in April, it’s absolutely perfect that they ended like this. Daniel and Henrik Sedin led the Canucks to victory in their final game on Vancouver ice before retirement, with Daniel scoring both a second-period goal and the overtime winner off Henrik assists.
After an 18-year NHL career spent entirely together (not to mention several seasons with MODO in Sweden), Henrik and Daniel Sedin have jointly announced their plans to retire at the end of the season in a letter published on the Canucks website. With the Canucks out of the playoff picture, that means this Saturday…
Vancouver ended Florida’s 12-game winning streak with an OT goal by Daniel Sedin (off a feed from his twin brother Henrik), but the real action came after the final horn. It also featured, from Panthers TV guy Denis Potvin, one of the most inexplicable insults I’ve ever heard.
Early in last night’s 3-2 Coyotes win, Canucks forward Daniel Sedin took a batted puck directly to the mouth. Watch the replay at the 22-second mark (or don’t!); you can see a tooth make a leap for freedom.
Today in "headlines I never thought I'd write."
A meaningless season finale between Calgary and Vancouver became ugly tonight as a hit from Paul Byron left Daniel Sedin on a stretcher and headed to the hospital.
It's hard to blame the officials for occasionally losing track of things during last night's punchy 1-0 Kings win over Vancouver, a game that saw 109 total penalty minutes. It's extra-hard to blame them for penalizing Henrik Sedin for an infraction committed by Daniel Sedin—they look alike, and all.
The Passion World Tour is an annual series of gatherings of college-age evangelicals for music and prayer. The 2012 tour kicked off on Friday at Vancouver's Rogers Arena, home of the Canucks and their concussed superstar Daniel Sedin. At one point during the festivities, Pastor Louie Giglio asked the crowd of over…
The NHL awards were last night; we didn't watch. (Mostly a Jay Mohr thing.) So we couldn't tell you what outfit the readers of Seventeen picked out for Jeff Skinner, or if the pointless Jennings Trophy was handed beforehand, like the technical Oscars.
More people than ever before watched game seven of the Stanley Cup finals Wednesday night, and that's a good thing for hockey. Both the league and fans hoping for growth should delight that the NHL had its best American TV rating in 38 years even though one of the teams came from Canada.
We came across this cute Canucks kid, doing his own version of a Twisted Sister classic. We spruced up the visuals.
Maybe they do things weird up there, but this story (headline: "Daniel cements his Hart throb status"), by the Sun's Cam Cole, seems an unlikely way to tell Canuck fans that their team's top scorer is an MVP finalist.
