Last night, the Vancouver Canucks suffered a devastating loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, blowing a 3-0 lead to ultimately fall 5-4. With this loss, the Canucks now hold the NHL Record of having the most multi-goal blown leads through 40 games in NHL history.
Through their first 40 games of the current season, the Canucks have blown an astounding 8 2+ goal leads, surpassing previous records set by the 2018-2019 New York Rangers, the 1985 New Jersey Devils, and the 2005-2006 New York Islanders, all of whom had 7 blown leads through the same number of games.
Very disappointing for the Vancouver team and their fans, who had high expectations entering this season, but have turned out to be a huge mess. They have a ton of behind the scenes issues, as well as in the locker room with player attitudes, players wanting trades, and more.
