Vancouver Canucks play in the Northwest Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL). The Canucks were founded in 1945 and spent their early history competing in the PCHL and WHL before joining the NHL in 1970, along with the Buffalo Sabres. The 1970's Vancouver Canucks had limited success, making the playoffs a few times, but without much luck. In 1982, Vancouver became a Cinderella Story when they reached the Stanley Cup finals, but were swept by the Islanders. The team would fall back into mediocrity until 1994, when the Vancouver Canucks made another improbable run through the playoffs to lose in the Cup finals, this time to the Rangers. Vancouver might be nearing the end of a rebuilding effort, and Vancouver Canucks fans hope to see their team finally make it past the first round of the playoffs, something they haven't done in nearly 15 years.
The Vancouver Canucks play their home games at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, formerly General Motors Place. The arena holds a capacity crowd of nearly 19,000 hockey fans. Attending a game in Vancouver lets you experience one of the most breathtaking cities in the world and enjoy the incredible state of the art upgrades to this amazing arena.

Detroit VS. Canucks November 6/2010 I ordered my tickets from TicketCity and they arrived less than 24 hours later to my door. The price was fantastic for FRONT ROW SEATS! We literally couldn't have gotten closer to the action! The game was a high pace, high scoring, and highly entertaining. I loved seeing players getting checked into the boards right in front of us. TicketCity is a very professional and fantastic place to order your tickets! November 8, 2010
2010-11 Season Preview Each of the last two NHL seasons saw the Vancouver Canucks tally 100 or more points en route to being crowned Northwest Division champions. However, the party ended in familiar fashion both times, with the Chicago Blackhawks playing the role of crasher in the conference semifinals and in effect derailing Vancouver's hopes for the franchise's first-ever Stanley Cup victory. Recipe for success this season will again hinge on brothers Henrik and Daniel Sedin (a combined 197 points last season), as well as another strong year from Olympic goaltending hero Roberto Luongo (40 wins, 2.57 GAA, .913 Save % in 09-10). The team also returns its top two goal-scorers, Alexandre Burrows and Mikael Samuelsson, and center Ryan Kesler's clutch contributions (12 power player goals, five game-winning tallies) cannot be understated. For the Canucks, a third straight division title won't come easy, as the Northwest produced four teams with winning records last season. Even last-place Edmonton is expected to be much-improved. Vancouver certainly has the talent to emerge atop the Northwest yet again, but can they get beyond the conference semis? Fans in British Columbia hope their team draws any playoff opponent not called Chicago in order to get over the hump. September 27, 2010
