The first Canuck win over the Montreal Canadiens came in the 1975 playoffs.

Canuck Streaks

When the Canucks won ten in a row during November 2002, they set a team record. What's even more surprising about this winning streak is that all the games were won in regulation time. In other words, none of the other teams were able to earn a single point for losing in overtime. The Canucks broke two streaks at one time. You can also add that the Canucks tied their record for longest unbeaten streak. It was an impressive run.

There are two categories for Canuck streaks. The first is in consecutive games and the second is against a single team. In addition, there are many new kinds of streaks in the era of a single point for an overtime loss.

Notes
Starting in the 1999-2000 season, teams losing in overtime receive a single point. This means that new streaks are possible. For example, the Canucks could lose five games in a row but earn three points (because they lost three games in overtime). In my books that counts as a losing streak, but not a "pointless" streak. Similarly, the Canucks could be on a winning streak, but if they win a couple of games in overtime, the opposition hasn't really lost. Thus the creation of the "streak where opponents get no points". (boy, I wish I had a catchy name for this type of streak). Of course, losing streaks prior to 1999-2000 will also count as "pointless" streaks (because in the old days, you didn't get a point when you lost -- you just lost).

All streaks in this section are for regular season games only.

Streaks against one team current up to the end of the 2009-10 season.
