Chiefs lose playoff opener at Vancouver

VANCOUVER, British Columbia – With mirroring records coupled with a pair of down-to-the-wire regular-season meetings, the first- round Western Hockey League playoff matchup between the Spokane Chiefs and Vancouver Giants was almost destined to be a low-scoring dogfight. Game 1 of the best-of-7 series turned out to be the exact opposite. At least on the low-scoring end.

Pitching rules day as Vancouver downs Spokane in NWL

With a big assist from starter Justin Nicolino, the Vancouver Canadians and Spokane Indians cleaned up their Northwest League baseball act considerably on Saturday night.

Vancouver holds off Indians in slugfest

Forget the fact that the starting pitchers, both considered to be the ace on their respective staffs, came in with a combined earned-run average of less than 4.00. Anyone hoping to witness a tidy, 2 ½-hour pitchers’ duel at Avista Stadium went home Friday night deeply disappointed following visiting Vancouver’s messy 9-7 Northwest League baseball win over the Spokane Indians.

Boston takes Stanley Cup finals with historic rout of Canucks

VANCOUVER, British Columbia – The Boston Bruins had waited 39 long years for another drink from the Stanley Cup, and Tim Thomas was awfully thirsty.

Bruins goaltender’s play in net going to waste in Stanley Cup finals

VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Tim Thomas is giving a masterful performance in his net during the Stanley Cup finals. He’s also doing an excellent job masking the frustration that must be coursing through him. The Bruins’ star goalie has allowed just six goals by the Vancouver Canucks in five games, yet Boston is heading home facing elimination in Game 6 on Monday.
