Shawn Matthias scored a goal in Vancouver’s 4-2 loss to Calgary on Sunday.
Matthias’ goal at the 9:09 mark of the first period tied the game one. Unfortunately for the Canucks, the Flames answered with three unanswered goals. Radim Vrbata and Nick Bonino picked up the assists on the Matthias goal. The Canucks now find themselves down two games to one. Jannik Hansen also scored a goal for Vancouver. This series has been extremely physical and it was much of the same on Sunday night. There’s no reason to believe that these two teams will tone down the physicality throughout the series.

Shawn Matthias (undisclosed) could return to action in time for Game 1.

Matthias missed the last two games of the regular season but according to the Vancouver Province, he sounded optimistic with regards to playing in Game 1. He finished the season with 18 goals and 27 points so he gives the Canucks some nice secondary scoring.

Mar 1 - 9:35 AM

Shawn Matthias recorded his first career hat trick to power the Canucks past the Bruins 5-2 on Friday night.

A tap-in, a dazzling display of patience, and a very fortunate bounce off him and in accounted for his trio of goals on the night. All very memorable to say the least. He now has 13 goals and 20 points this season.

Shawn Matthias left Saturday's game in the second period after taking an elbow to the head, and did not return.

There are fears that Matthias may have suffered a concussion and that's a shame as he was playing the best hockey of his career. Coming into the game, Matthias had four goals and six points in his last five games. Stay tuned for an update.

Shawn Matthias has four goals and six points in his last five games.

That is a hot streak for anyone but for a bottom-six forward, that is white-hot. He only had five points in his first 21 games so if you put him in your lineup over the last two weeks then you deserve kudos.

Shawn Matthias is on a three-game goal scoring streak.

Matthias also had an assist in Sunday's 5-3 loss to Detroit. He now has five goals and nine points in 24 contests in 2014-15.

Shawn Matthias found the back of the net in a 4-3 overtime win versus Ottawa.

Matthias now has two goals and four points in 17 games this season. That's pretty much what we expected of him going into 2014-15, so naturally we don't expect him to have any fantasy value in standard leagues.

Shawn Matthias scored a goal in Vancouver's 5-2 win over Colorado.

It was Matthias' first marker in 13 games in 2014-15. He has three points in 13 games this season, which means he's more or less living up to expectations.

Shawn Matthias will move up to Vancouver's third line for Tuesday's game in Dallas.

He had been playing center on the fourth line, but now he'll be a left winger. Matthias, who has no points and three shots in four games, will play with Brad Richardson and Zack Kassian.

Shawn Matthias centered Daniel Sedin and Nicklas Jensen on the second line Saturday.

What's amazing is that Matthias was the fourth line center on Florida, the second worst team in the NHL while on a playoff contender, he is now seeing second line minutes. Matthias has two goals and five points in 12 games since his trade from Florida. He has little fantasy value at this time.
