Vancouver at Anaheim

25



The Canucks look to pick up two points against the Anaheim Ducks tonight when they play the first of back-to-back games in SoCal to close out their four-game road trip.

There are times when earning a single point in a game feels like a victory, and other times when it feels like a disappointment. For the Canucks, despite dropping a 3-2 shootout decision on Friday in Dallas, they had to feel pretty good about the fact they twice battled back from a deficit against the top team in the Western Conference. The Ducks, on the other hand, are probably still seething after squandering a two-goal lead with less than two minutes left in regulation on Friday to fall 3-2 in overtime to Chicago. So while the Canucks look to continue their momentum on a road trip that has seen them earn three of a possible four points so far, the Ducks are hoping to turn the tide by snapping a two-game winless skid in tonight's critical divisional clash.

Aside from the recent routine of alternating rookie Jake Virtanen and Sven Baertschi in and out of the line-up – and it appears Baertschi will be the odd-man out tonight up front – no other line-up changes are expected for the Canucks. Defenceman Ben Hutton, who has been out since November 18, joined the team for practice yesterday but is not expected to play tonight. With the Canucks concluding their trip tomorrow in Los Angeles, they could potentially turn to Jacob Markstrom tonight and give Ryan Miller an additional day of rest before coming back with the veteran netminder against the Kings.

I think it's that they're a very tired team, 10 of their last 12 games have been on the road and the 2 home games they've played were back to back......It's still disappointing, especially since this was also the first time this season the guys have been shut out. This road trip ends tomorrow in L.A.

No doubt eh? It seemed that they had no "puck luck" at all.

Oh well.

Vancouver at Los Angeles

26


The Canucks look to close out their four-game road trip on a high note tonight when they take on the Los Angeles Kings for the second time this season.

Just when it seemed the Canucks were slowly starting to turn the corner, all of a sudden they're seemingly right back at square one. After starting out their four-game road trip with strong efforts in Minnesota and Dallas, despite a shootout loss in the latter, they turned in a dud last night against an Anaheim team that should have been ripe for the picking dropping a 4-0 decision in a game where they were clearly second best. The Canucks still have an opportunity to make this trip a successful one although it won't be easy against a Kings team that seems to be finding their stride lately.

Los Angeles comes into tonight's game having earned points in three straight, including scoring an impressive 3-2 come-from-behind overtime win on Saturday against the defending Cup champion Blackhawks. Suffice it to say, they're not the same team the Canucks blanked 3-0 back on October 13 at the Staples Center. The Canucks are expected to be without rookie Jake Virtanen tonight after he sustained an upper-body injury in the loss to the Ducks. Although Coach Desjardins did not officially confirm it, it's likely that Jacob Markstrom will get the nod in net tonight. Markstrom played the final 11 minutes of last night's game in relief of Ryan Miller stopping the lone shot he faced.

One more time.....Thank God that road trip is over.....amazingly enough the guys managed to salvage a record of 1-1-2, picking up 4 points! BUT....the Canucks start a 4 games in one week home-stand, followed by ANOTHER 6 game road trip leading up to Christmas! The home-stand starts on Thursday with Dallas coming to town for a rematch of their game of last Friday where Dallas defeated the Canucks 3-2 in the shoot-out.

Vancouver vs Dallas

27


The Canucks begin a four-game home stand tonight when they host reigning Art Ross Trophy-winner Jamie Benn and the West-leading Dallas Stars.

The Canucks' just-concluded four-game road trip wasn't quite as disappointing in terms of results compared to their seven-game trek back in November but, all the same, they're limping back home both figuratively and literally. After starting the trip on a strong note with a win in Minnesota, Vancouver dropped the final three games of the trip capping it off with a 2-1 overtime loss on Tuesday to the Kings in a game they would not have gotten a point from had it not been for the efforts of netminder Jacob Markstrom. Considering the Canucks went into that game against the Kings with three new members added to the injured list – Chris Higgins, Jake Virtanen, and Chris Tanev – getting a single point might be considered a minor victory in itself.

The banged-up Canucks didn't practice yesterday but will have a different look compared to just two days ago in Los Angeles. Ronalds Kenins, who burst onto the scene last season when he was called up from Utica (AHL), is expected to make his NHL season debut after being summoned yesterday. Other potential line-up news, including who starts in goal and whether any of the injured players are ready to return, will trickle in sometime after the morning skate. This is first and only visit for the Stars to Vancouver this season, and the third and final meeting between the two teams overall. The Stars are looking to complete the sweep of the Canucks having won both previous match-ups.
