Canucks to make the playoffs for first time since ’89 playoffs

Entertainment

The Canucks are heading to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time in franchise history and, according to a team source, will play to avenge their “90s glory days.”

The Canucks were eliminated in the first round by the Washington Capitals last season.

They will play a rematch of last season’s second round series in Los Angeles on Thursday, Nov. 8.

The team source said Thursday’s game is being made up of two “championships” – the Canucks’ third and fourth, respectively.

“It’s a pretty good shot at the playoffs,” said the source.

“If we win in the second round and play better in the third and we get a chance to close out the year and then take it to our rivals, I think it’s going to be pretty exciting.”

The Canucks have never won a Stanley Cup and they are hoping to become the first team in franchise memory to win four Cups.

Despite their status as the “worst team in the NHL,” the Canucks have made the playoffs in every season since 1989-90.

They were eliminated from the playoffs by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the opening round in 1998.

It has been a long and frustrating run for the Canucks, who have failed to reach the playoffs since 2008-09.

They are 2-14-3 since then.

However, this season, the Canucks will face the Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Final, a game that could decide the fate of the franchise.

After going 0-8-1 in the series against the Penguins, the Kings have won five of their last six games, including three straight victories.

But the Kings, led by a young and exciting lineup led by DeMarcus Cousins, have had a lot of trouble in recent games.

Los Angeles is 0-7-2 in its last 11 games.
