The Vancouver Canucks dealt former captain Trevor Linden to the New York Islanders for defenseman Bryan McCabe, center Todd Bertuzzi and a third-round draft pick. Hours later, the Islanders, working to beat a midnight deadline on a trading freeze throughout the Olympics, picked up three more players by sending three of their own to Anaheim. In that trade, New York center Travis Green, defenseman Doug Houda and right wing Tony Tuzzolino were dealt to the Mighty Ducks for defenseman J.J. Daigneault, center Mark Janssens and right wing Joe Sacco.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Everybody knew Alex Burrows was fast. Just not this fast. With the second-speediest overtime goal in NHL playoff and Finals history, Vancouver's talented forward moved the Canucks halfway to their first Stanley Cup title. Burrows circled the net and scored a stunning goal 11 seconds into overtime, and Vancouver took a two-games-to-none lead in the Stanley Cup Finals with a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Saturday night. Right after the opening faceoff of overtime, Burrows received a pass from Daniel Sedin and streaked down the boards, eluding Boston captain Zdeno Chara behind the net before extending his stick for a wraparound goal, beating out-of-position goalie Tim Thomas for his second score of the game.

The Vancouver Canucks moved a big step closer toward securing home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs. Daniel Sedin scored twice and Roberto Luongo made 39 saves, leading visiting Vancouver to a 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings last night. The NHL-leading Canucks have won eight of nine, building a 10-point lead over Detroit - the second-place team in the West - with eight games left. Vancouver has an eight-point edge over the East-leading Flyers. "It's good, for sure," forward Henrik Sedin said.

The Vancouver Canucks have problems. They are in last place in the Smythe Division. Their leading scorer, Trevor Linden, has yet to reach the 50-point plateau. And they went into Friday's game against the New York Rangers with 15 losses in their last 20 games. Certainly, a lot of those problems stem from the Canucks' lack of scoring and defense. But, according to general manager and new coach Pat Quinn, the Canucks also suffer from the inability to handle off-ice problems.

On a night when Vancouver lost Mark Messier with a suspected concussion 3:36 into the game, the Canucks turned in one of their best performances of the season. The visiting Canucks managed to overcome the loss of their captain to beat the Calgary Flames, 5-3, last night. Newly acquired Harry York sparked the offense with a goal and two assists as Vancouver won the first of back-to-back games with the Flames. "Winning a game like this on the road will be a big boost to our confidence," Canucks coach Mike Keenan said.

The Vancouver Canucks lost leading scorer Markus Naslund for the season with a broken leg sustained in a 4-2 loss at Buffalo last night. Naslund, the Canucks' captain, broke his right leg with 11 minutes, 9 seconds remaining. He was taken to Buffalo General Hospital immediately after the game. "Markus has a fractured tibia," said Canucks coach Marc Crawford. "It's obviously a tough break. He's had a terrific season, one of the best seasons a player has had in a Canuck uniform in the last five or six years.

The Vancouver Canucks' top line was determined to end the team's road skid. Markus Naslund had two goals and an assist and Todd Bertuzzi also had three points to lead Vancouver to a 5-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens last night. Mike Keane scored his first goal for the Canucks and Jason King had his team-leading 11th goal to help Vancouver end a five-game road losing streak (0-3-0-2). Bertuzzi and center Brendan Morrison each assisted on both of Naslund's goals as Vancouver's top line accounted for eight points.

The Vancouver Canucks backed into the Spectrum last night with two wins in their last 19 games. They were dead last in the Smythe Division, and they were coming off a game against Washington in which they blew a two-goal lead in the third period and lost. Against the punchless Flyers, however, the Canucks didn't need much of an offense, as they squeaked out a 2-1 win on goals in the first and third periods. The game could have been a turning point for the Flyers. A win would have boosted them over Pittsburgh and back into second place in the Patrick Division.

Banished to the bench last week, Steve Mason was ultra-sharp in his return Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Resembling the goalie who had a career season in 2014-15, Mason made 36 saves to steer the Flyers to a 2-0 win over the sagging Vancouver Canucks. "He made some key saves at key moments," said Sean Couturier, who secured the win by scoring on a rebound with 2 minutes, 50 seconds remaining. "I mean, he kept us in the game. " It was Mason's first home win since Oct. 24, a span of eight games.

VANCOUVER - Since late November, the Flyers have worn an orange shamrock with the initials "PQ" on the back of their helmets to honor the legacy of former coach Pat Quinn. It was fitting, then, that the teams with two of Quinn's deepest ties met last night on St. Patrick's Day to celebrate the life of the "Big Irishman. " Quinn, the man who led the Flyers (1980) and the Canucks (1994) to the Stanley Cup finals, passed away on Nov. 23, 2014, at Vancouver General Hospital after a long illness.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — The Flyers' road woes continued Tuesday night in Vancouver, and once again they failed to give goalie Steve Mason much offensive support. Right winger Alex Burrows scored two third-period goals 17 seconds apart, snapping a 1-1 tie and sparking the Canucks to a hard-earned 4-1 win at Rogers Arena. It was the Flyers' seventh straight road loss (0-5-2); they slipped to 9-19-9 on the road, where they haven't won since a 2-1 victory in Buffalo on Feb. 15. Mason (31 saves)

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Quite simply, goalie Steve Mason stole two points for the Flyers on Monday night at Rogers Arena. Mason made 41 saves - made of them spectacular - and Vinny Lecavalier scored the lone shootout goal as the Flyers defeated Vancouver, 4-3. Mason stopped all three shots in the shootout, ending the Canucks' six-game home winning streak. With Mason pulled, Brayden Schenn tapped in a tipped pass from Scott Hartnell with 46.8 seconds left in regulation, tying the score at 3-3. Schenn punched the air triumphantly after ending a 16-game slump without a goal.

After his team lost in Detroit on Saturday, coach Craig Berube insisted that the Flyers did a lot of good things while at even strength and that his sagging team would soon get positive results. Maybe on Thursday. Ryan Kesler's second goal of the night, off a rebound with 2 minutes, 25 seconds left, lifted the Vancouver Canucks to a 3-2 comeback win over the dazed Flyers Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Steve Mason made a brilliant save on Chris Higgins, but Kesler put in the rebound to send the Flyers to 1-6. The two-point total matches their worst seven-game record in franchise history.

VANOUVER - New Canucks coach John Tortorella was surprised the subject of his famous temper didn't come up in the first question of his introductory news conference yesterday. But he didn't get angry or yell. The 55-year-old Boston native admitted his reputation needs some work, and he vowed to improve it as he attempts to give Vancouver a long-awaited Stanley Cup title. "This is the mess I put myself into, and this is the mess I'm going to get myself out of," he said. The Canucks hired the fiery Tortorella as the replacement for Alain Vigneault, the winningest coach in franchise history.
