Give Adam Gaudette credit, the young Vancouver Canucks center is taking advantage of his chances. Called up only last week, in the Nov. 12, 5-3 win over the Nashville Predators, Gaudette had two points (a goal and an assist) with the man advantage to help his team halt its losing streak at four games. Related: Vancouver Canucks News: Pettersson, Demko, Baertschi, Hughes & More The team now sits with a 10-6-3 record and is in third place in the Pacific Division. It’s a good team that, to my eye, seems to be getting better. I’m hoping Gaudette can become a part of that “better” team. Gaudette’s first point was an assist on Tanner Pearson’s second-period goal. Then, the 23-year-old center scored a tap-in goal on a third-period rebound to restore a one-goal lead for the Canucks. That goal gave him six points in nine games this season.

VANCOUVER — Actor Bill Murray made a surprise appearance at Tuesday's Vancouver Canucks game — along with filmmaker Peter Farrelly, a fistful of 50-50 raffle tickets, and what appears to be a Hudson's Bay scarf. The team has tweeted several posts showing the "Ghostbusters" star sitting beside Farrelly in the Rogers Arena crowd as the Canucks beat the Nashville Predators. In one post Murray is seen holding a long sleeve of tickets for a raffle benefiting the Canucks for Kids Fund, which assists charities supporting children's education, health and wellness. In another, he's seen in the Canucks dressing room talking to players.

Canucks Goaltending

“Three on none.” This is a situation that no goaltender would ever dare to face. However, for Vancouver Canucks goaltender Jacob Markstrom this nightmare became a reality on Nov. 5 against the defending Stanley Cup champions, the St. Louis Blues. Tyler Myers’ dicey decision to join the offensive rush proved costly as the lumbering giant’s shot severely missed the net, springing all three Blues the other way with no players to stop them. To make matters worse, Myers’ 12-foot long legs (pending measurement confirmation), tripped and therefore eliminated teammate JT Miller from the play. The result of this fiasco was a goal for Jaden Schwartz that gave the Blues a 2-1 overtime victory. Do Not Blame Markstrom Anybody blaming the result of this game on Markstrom might have been indulging in Vancouver’s notorious herbs a little bit too much during the game. The 29-year-old Swede was absolutely spectacular as he has been for the last season and a half. However, the...
