March 2, 2014: Vancouver hosted a special NHL Heritage Classic stadium game at BC Place, with the Ottawa Senators visiting that city's Canucks. The two sides dressed in vintage uniforms in a tribute to their respective cities' predecessors: Vancouver suited up in the old Millionaires' "V" jerseys, a throwback to that team's 1915 Stanley Cup over the Senators, while the Ottawa side's "O" sweaters are a nod to the 1930s Senators.

The Canucks took an early two-goal lead, but the Senators quickly tied it up and later turned it around to surpass the hometown team, as a goals from Cody Ceci on a pass from Jason Spezza put them ahead 3-2 in the second; Colin Greening scored on an empty net to bring the score to a 4-2 win for Ottawa. The Canucks' Daniel Sedin left the game in the second period with an injury after taking an elbow to the head from the Senators' defenceman Marc Methot. It was the Senators' first win in three games keeps them in the race for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Canucks, who suffered their ninth loss in 10 games, now remain on the bubble in their quest for eighth in the Western Conference.
