After more than two months without team captain and star goaltender in net, the Vancouver Canucks got some great news on Monday.
"We're full go right now, I did everything in practice, I didn't hold anything back," said Luongo
Luongo's return can not come soon enough for the struggling Canucks, who host the New Jersey Devils tonight at GM Place on Canucks TV PPV. The team has dropped four of the last five games and are a dismal 9-11-3 since Luongo was injured. In an attempt to stop the skid, general manager Mike Gillis, acquired goaltender Jason LaBarbera from the L.A. Kings on December 30th. The Burnaby native, LaBarbera showed promise posting a record of 2-1-2 and a save percentage of 2.72, but is in no way the goalie of the future for Vancouver.
Despite missing so much time Luongo still remains near the top of the league in many statistical categories. His five shutouts is good enough for a second place tie. He has also been voted into this months All-Star Game in Montreal.
The Canucks currently sit at 5th place in the Western Conference, five points back of division leading Calgary in the North West Division.
can we take a moment for Trevor Linden?
I only heard about it on the radio, waiting for the SeaBus to come in, but a part of me doesn't want to see The Goal. The part that doesn't to want to believe that any professional hockey goalie, much less Roberto "MVP" Luongo, can make a mental mistake like that, tired or not. The part of me that doesn't want to believe the season's over. The local junior team, the Vancouver Giants, are in the playoffs too, but I don't know the name of any of the players. (Granted, a Giants game is decent hockey at a decent price, and would watch at the old Pacific Colosseum game again sometime.) Nevermind a war without end: in Canada, with the World Championships, Memorial Cup, and talk about the Olympics going to heat up in a couple of years, we're a country engaging in hockey with no end. Says the guy who just started playing floorball.
Now we fans are cured of our 3-hour long fits of belief suspension, and can finally get to the serious business of berating the weather for teasing us (or, like this morning, tricking us). Game 7 might have happened during a book reading I want to attend, and local grumps can finally thank their goodnesses. Welcome to True Vancouver Daylight Savings Time.

They talk about heroes - both new and vintage - stepping it up for playoff glory, plus outline key matchups against the Ducks and highlight noteworthy performances for and against the Stars.
Finally, after the late night win, Dave recounts Cowan's heroics and drops in a few recent mainstream media appearences (CTV, CBC, CKNW + Dallas Stars podcast and Vancouver Courier).

After the Canucks won in the two most exciting periods I'd seen in a long time (the second and the third), I'm still left with a few questions:
