Top 10 Greatest Moments in Canucks History

Depending on which part of Canada you may find yourself in, you could love the Canucks or hate them! While the battle of Alberta is divides the province, Vancouver shares a similar trait with Toronto… people from all over the county have an opinion! Regardless which side you might be on, you can’t deny the history this franchise has had! And if you’re a Leafs fan, you may be a little jealous!

Lets start this list off!

#10 The Forgotten Goal

Some would say this is the most overlooked, underappreciated goal in Vancouver Canucks history! You’ll notice the remaining top 10 moments in franchise history are full with memories from Vancouver’s magical run to the Stanley Cup Final in 1994, but there would of been no run, no memories, no nothing without Courtnall! After the Canucks pumped the Calgary Flames 5-0 in the first game of the Western Conference Quarter-finals, they lost three straight games as the Flames took a strangle hold on the series. In a must-win Game 5 in Calgary, Pavel Bure and Wes Walz each scored in regulation before Kirk McLean and Mike Vernon went save-for-save forcing overtime.
In the extra session, there was no Bure brilliance or luster from Linden, it was Courtnall who hammered a shot from the left wing that blew past Vernon for the game-winner, the first of three consecutive OT wins by the Canucks!

  1. Well done. These are actually well thought out and not just dumbo Wimpden’s retirement night choices. I’ll throw in a totally obscure honorable mention. The Canucks beating the defending Cup champ Bruins that first NHL expansion year behind Rosaire Paiement’s heroics. I also think they may have beaten the B’s twice that season.

    I have been a Canuck fan since I was 5 years old when they were playing in the WHL! I was at this game 7 in Calgary when Pavel scored this huge OT winner! It was awesome, my brother and our best friend drove to Calgary and bought tickets at the ticket window in the morning of game 7 after we drove all night to get there……what a sweet win that one was and what a run in ’94!!
