The Vancouver Canucks are in a tail-spin. The lost in epic style last night when the Islanders made a comeback in the third period with seven goals to take the win. Vancouver has won a bare minimum of 3 games since January 23rd and, with last night’s blow-out by the Islanders, is a fire sale imminent? (The Canuck Way)

Luongo is doing well in Florida. Roberto Luongo was traded back to the Florida Panthers just before the trade deadline this season and had acquired a shutout in his first game back. Even though the team lost against the Boston Bruins on Sunday, Florida seems to be in a better spot with Luongo’s return to goal. (The Rat Trick)

It was a scary night in the NHL last night during the Dallas Stars game when Rich Peverley collapsed behind the bench. It was only a few minutes into the game when Peverley collapsed due to a heart condition and the entire game was shut down. It was a true test of character for the league, teams, and fans. Our best wishes for a speedy recovery go out to Rich, and our sincerest sympathies go out to his family, his friends, and his teammates. (Union And Blue)
