Canucks and Beyond

Hockey and the Blues

1. Last night the Canucks won; tonight they'll win again. It's Roberto Luongo's chance to become the winningest goalie in Vancouver Canucks history as he looks for that 39th win. Seems like a challenge he's more than prepared to answer. And after scoring his 6th goal in 4 games, Jeff ("C-Cup", "Brabarian", etc.) Cowan is almost certain to be skating through a sea of lingerie next time he hits the ice at GM Place. Says the Associated Press, "Even when he misses on a shot, he scores." In other words, when you're hot, you're hot. Cowan has never scored more than 9 goals 11 goals in an entire NHL season. (note: thanks to Trevor for pointing out my error in the comments) 2. Last night on the Canucks pay-per-view broadcast we got a run-down of the Canucks annual charity even, Dice & Ice. A ho-hum little feature I was barely paying attention to, until I saw this little scene go down: A stage performance featuring the musical stylings of The Boys Blues Brothers. En francais, give a warm welcome to Dany Sabourin, Marc Chouinard, and Alex Burrows, as they sing their hearts out for you...
I love stuff like that. Well done, Blues Boys...

In addition to writing Canucks & Beyond and helping manage Kukla's Korner, Alanah was one of the founders and co-hosts of The Crazy Canucks Podcast. She has contributed pieces to FoxSports.com and the New York Times Slapshot blog, as well as other stray destinations in cyberspace.

So that's me. Who the hell are you? smile
