VANCOUVER — This has never been tried. Nobody has done what the Vancouver Canucks are trying to do because no major professional sports team in North America has been attacked the way the Canucks were the last three weeks by COVID-19’s vicious P.1 variant. There is no precedent. Finishing the National Hockey League season with nearly an entire roster of coronavirus survivors is a monumental challenge that seems almost impossible to conclude with any competitive success. It seems the Canucks

When Alex Edler stuck out his knee Sunday night, he didn’t just clip Zach Hyman. He triggered the panic button in Leafs Nation. Hyman is throwing down a career performance, in a contract year to boot. He’s a tough, excuse-free customer who once grinded through half of a playoff series on a torn ACL. So, to watch Hyman hit the deck and eventually hobble off the ice following Edler’s knee-on-knee collision — “a pretty dirty hit,” in teammate William Nylander’s evaluation — is to s

We truly do live in a bizarre world right now. Despite facing an uphill battle, the […] The post Leafs Report Cards: Braden Holtby stands on his head, Canucks return from Covid layoff with OT win over Leafs appeared first on Maple Leafs Hotstove.

TLN Three Stars: Leafs win in regulation with late goal, but it didn’t count, so Canucks win in OT

This had to be one of the most talked about games going into the game that had absolutely no playoff implications, as the Canucks were playing their first game in almost a month after dealing with one of the COVID variants that went through most of the team. It was going to be interesting to see how the Canucks would handle their first game back from a disease that would probably affect their stamina and endurance, and how the Leafs would respond to that. Somehow that wasn’t the biggest story

Captain Bo Horvat snapped in the game-winner 1:19 into the extra frame for his second goal of the game. He also registered an assist on the night. Nils Hoglander also scored and notched a helper in regulation for the Canucks (16-20-3), who were playing their first game since March 24. William Nylander had a goal and an assist for the Leafs (29-

To twist an old Neil Young song, rust never sleeps. The Vancouver Canucks, three weeks after COVID-19 halted their season, far back in the playoff race and with many of their players still out or ailing, gave the fully charged Maple Leafs all they could handle Sunday night at Rogers Arena.

Bob Frid-USA TODAY SportsJust a bad night. The Leafs journeyed to Vancouver to face the Canucks tonight, who were playing their first game after returning from a vicious outbreak of COVID-19. Should this game even have taken place? Debatable. Anyway, one of us had to recap it, so here I am. I’ve decided to try the timestamp method, based approximately on the time of the stoppage where I’m writing notes. I hope that you enjoy the vibrant immediacy of this format while mostly looking at Omar
