Canucks begin playoff push with 1-0 win over St. Louis

The Canucks pulled off a 1-0 win against the St. Louis Blues Wednesday night, but it's going to be a long haul if they want to make the playoffs.

With 21 games left, the Canucks are sitting in tenth place in the Western conference.

Before the Olympic break, the Canucks lost seven games straight and Coach John Tortorella said he wants to see the team start playing like they did at the beginning of the season.

The fight for a playoff spot continues Friday against the Minnessota Wild.
