Looks like the team is trying everything to get over the loss in Detroit.

VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks did some yoga Monday to help them relax after a disappointing loss in Detroit, but a potentially stressful question still needs to be answered.
Coach Alain Vigneault must decide whether to go back to Roberto Luongo, who allowed all of the goals in an 8-3 loss to the Red Wings. Vigneault was not around to field reporters' questions and add a new chapter to Vancouver's season-long goaltending saga.
Goaltending has been a hot topic since Cory Schneider displaced Luongo as the team's starter in last spring's playoffs, but the team did not trade the latter as expected.
Luongo was not available Monday, either, but teammates were quick to defend him after the shellacking in Motown.
"Goaltending has been excellent," said Daniel Sedin. "That's one game, and everyone can have an off night. That was one for Lu, and he's going to come right back and be good again."
Bounces off defencemen, shooters left wide open, and a poor penalty-killing effort, which enabled Detroit to convert three of five power plays, did not help his cause. The outing contradicted his 23-save effort in a 1-0 win in Nashville two nights earlier.
"(Luongo) and (Schneider) have been our best players this year," said Henrik Sedin. "That's the bottom line."
He said forwards and defencemen can go without scoring and generate little discussion, but everybody talks about the goaltenders even if they have an average performance.
Accordingly, fans and some media types were questioning Sunday and Monday whether Luongo should have been pulled rather than being left in for all eight goals. Luongo saw his goal-against average fall to a highly respectable 2.11 after he led the league. He suffered his first regulation-time loss of the season and sports a 5-1-5 record, including two shutouts, along with three overtime losses and two shootout setbacks.
Schneider has a 2.68 goals-against average with a 5-3-2 mark and one shutout.
So Henrik Sedin was not putting too much stock in the one-sided loss to the Wings after the Canucks finished their four-game road trip with a 2-1-1 mark that included another win in Dallas and a shootout loss in Chicago to the hottest team in the NHL.
"It could have been a great road trip, but it ended up being a good road trip," said Henrik Sedin. "Four tough cities to go into, to get five points out of it was pretty good."
The Detroit loss excepted, the Canucks (10-4-4) are looking for more of the same against the hard-working Coyotes (8-7-3), who are reeling after allowing two late goals 23 seconds apart in a loss to Calgary on Sunday.
"It doesn't matter who we play against," said Henrik Sedin. "We came into Chicago, they're the best team in the league right now, and we came back. We outplayed them in the third period and we were able to come back, so we feel we're in good shape."
The first-game back after a long road trip is often tough on a team, and the difficulties could be exacerbated in this lockout-shortened, 48-game season.
Henrik Sedin said the yoga sessions help players chill out after the stresses of a game, and the stretching exercises provide "a bit of a workout, too."
"You feel extremely relaxed afterwards," said Henrik Sedin, who had not done a yoga session before this season. "We've done it after the game a lot of times, and it gets you back calmed down."
Monday's yoga session replaced an on-ice workout after a long overnight flight from Detroit.
"You want to stretch and relax with a long flight (Sunday) night, so it's something great to do," said forward Max Lapierre.

And who would you say has the best moose knuckle on the team? I'm betting Burrows, although maybe Weise might surprise you.

I imagine it could also be useful for aiding in injury prevention. Nothing helps avoiding muscle strains like stretching does. This is even more important in a shortened season.

Yoga might reduce injury. A hard workout right after a long road trip probably issnt a good idea in this shortened season

I do yoga. It's not for weaklings. You need a lot of core strength. The stretching is also excellent for injury prevention. I'm surprised more teams aren't implementing it as part of their strength and conditioning.

People who diss yoga are people that have never done yoga because they're too "macho".

Yoga's not easy and you feel great afterwords. It's great for athletes in any sport.

Btw its not the first time these guys have done yoga...theyve been doing it for years...just saying. (the prospects anyways...so its not new to the team)

This. Too many people diss things before even trying them or giving them a shot. I haven't done a lot of Yoga, but it's not just the physical aspect that's good, it also helps you mentally and emotionally.

I have been teaching PE for 15 years. Yoga is one of the most challenging things I have ever done. It's great for core strength, flexibility and stress reduction.

I'm pretty sure at least some of them were doing yoga last year. Glad to see it's still being used. Sounds like a great way to keep everyone loose but without tiring them out during a tight part of the schedule.

They should go to a boxing gym and smack each other around a bit. Wake em up and bring em together, I think it could work lol

Yoga? What's next, group tap dancing class? We need to spark the fierce competitor in them not the zen-topia freebird wussies! If this was av's idea I'll join the firing bandwagon.

Definitely. That's why I'm surprised the Canucks haven't tried it before. Management is usually on the cutting edge on these kinda things. Good to see them promoting it now. Especially good for things like preventing groin pulls as well as aiding in back issues or recovery.

That just shows your total ignorance on the subject. Have you ever tried a full-on high-movement Hot yoga routine? (There are all kinds of approaches to yoga.) You'd be sucking air, sweating like Mike Tyson at a spelling bee contest, and begging for mercy.

On the post-game/next day whiteboard in the dressing room that they show in the live interviews after the game I've noticed every time I've seen it this year it said yoga after the game.

Good for them, I wouldn't want to be trying that after playing a game. It's hard enough, especially bikram.

Yeah, just think! They just lost their 4th regulation time game all year, at the end of a 4 games in 6 days road trip, so it's time to p!ss off grown men by "teaching them a lesson" with a bag skate, thereby building reciprocal trust.

After that approach, I can't imagine what reading the riot act would look like after, say, two losses in a row against Calgary.

This forum's population is littered with spoiled children who think we should go 48-0 and win every game by a touchdown, all while skating at the speed of sound every shift.
