    Crawford hammers Canucks in practice

     VANCOUVER (CP) -- Vancouver Canucks coach Marc Crawford wasn't happy with his team's loss to Calgary over the weekend and he made his point at Monday's practice.
     
     For 40 minutes Crawford avoided using pucks, choosing instead to make his team do skating drills. Then he had them do some shooting drills before another long, hard skate. After 70 minutes on the ice there was an hour-long, closed-door team meeting. Then, Crawford refused to speak to the media.
     
     "Basically, it was just hard work," Donald Brashear told the Vancouver Province after the skate-till-you-drop session. "The last couple of games, he was not happy with our work ethic. He had to become upset at a certain point. It was just a reminder that we have to work harder."
     
     "The message was that we can't accept losing," said Markus Naslund. "It's pretty obvious we're in a tough spot. We've got to put some wins together and get back in this playoff race."
     
     After an 8-4-2-1 start, the Canucks have stumbled along at a 4-12-2-1 clip. They're 2-10-3-1 in their past 15 games.
