Crap. I think the game may have taken a different direction if not for that goal St. Louis got that I think was offside. Officials didn't see it that way though.

Oh well.

Vancouver at Minnesota

74


CANUCKS (29-35-9) at WILD (44-23-6)

After a 4-1 loss at the St. Louis Blues on Thursday, the Canucks, 1-5-2 in their past eight games, were mathematically eliminated from Stanley Cup Playoff contention. "You try to keep yourself kind of positive and stay energized, but it's tough when you're out of [the playoff race]," center Brandon Sutter said after practice Friday. "It's not easy, it's kind of a tough time of year, but you've just got to keep pushing through, and the more character we show in that kind of helps us next year. Just trying to get better." Backup goaltender Richard Bachman will start, and No. 1 Ryan Miller will start against the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday, Desjardins said. Goaltender Jacob Markstom, out since Feb. 16 with and illness, and forward Jayson Megna, who missed one game with an upper-body injury, took part in full practices Friday but aren't expected to return this weekend, according to coach Willie Desjardins. "[Megna's] close," Desjardins said. "I don't know if he'll see the next two games but he's close … and [Markstrom's] back and he's good. He'll be a couple games. He won't factor into these next two, but it's good that he's back and he should be ready next week." Backup goaltender Richard Bachman will start, and No. 1 Ryan Miller will start against the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday, Desjardins said.

Just turned on the radio.

They seem to be saying Brock Boeser is going to play. I guess his college team is finished.

There's hope he's the scoring star of the future.

I think I heard them say he'll be on the 4th line so can't expect much this time. It will be interesting to see if he can skate at least.

Boeser scores with 8 minutes left in the second. 3-0 Vancouver. On the Horvat line.

Go kids!

Have the Canucks found next year's backup goaltender to Markstrom, should Miller leave next year as they suspect he might?

The general feeling seems to be Thatcher Demko should have at least another year on the farm to develop into the star goaltender they expect him to.

But Bachman is surprisingly good lately. Why couldn't he be Markstrom's NHL backup next year? Is it worth the headache to sign Miller for another year?

I'm ok with it either way. Miller has been a very good goaltender but should he choose to leave then I'm perfectly happy with Bachman.

Vancouver at Winnipeg

75


CANUCKS (30-35-9) at JETS (33-35-7)

Forward Jack Skille won't play for the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday after sustaining an ankle injury in the second period of a 4-2 win against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday. "I wouldn't expect to see Skille in the line-up for a while," coach Willie Desjardins said after the game. The Canucks held an optional morning skate Sunday and Alex Biega is expected to take Skille's spot in the lineup. The Canucks are 2-5-2 in their past nine games. After scoring his first NHL goal at 11:51 of the second period in his first NHL game on Saturday, forward Brock Boeser, who signed an entry-level contract with the Canucks on Saturday a day after the University of North Dakota were eliminated from the NCAA tournament, said the past few days have been a whirlwind. "It's been crazy," Boeser said. "That was a great day and an awesome experience for all my family and friends, but it's out of the way now. It was a blast to be a part of that but I have to move on now and try and help the team any way I can to get some wins here. I think I'm slowly starting to come back down, finally, and kind of realize what yesterday was."

Two PP goals for the Jets was all it took to give the Jets a 2-1 win over the Canucks. The Canucks start a 3 game home stand against their West coast rivals with a game against Anaheim on Tuesday, followed by LA on Thursday and San Jose on Sunday.

Anaheim at Vancouver

76


DUCKS (41-23-11) at CANUCKS (30-36-9)

Top-pair defenseman Troy Stecher won't play against the Ducks after sustaining an upper-body injury during a 2-1 loss at the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday. But Stecher, who leads Canucks defensemen with 24 points (three goals, 21 assists) in 65 games as a rookie, isn't expected to be out long. "He was better than we thought he would be," coach Willie Desjardins said. "There might be an outside chance Friday (against the Kings)." Vancouver has two wins in its past 10 games and was eliminated from the playoffs on Thursday, midway through a 2-3-0 road trip. Twenty-year-old forward Brock Boeser will make his home debut. He played his first NHL game against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday. Boeser, who signed with the Canucks on Saturday after his college season with the University of North Dakota ended Friday, scored the game-winner against the Wild and played 17:52 on Sunday against the Jets. "It's been a whirlwind but it's been fun," said Boeser, who was selected by the Canucks in the first round (No. 23) of the 2015 NHL Draft. Vancouver signed free-agent forward Griffen Molino Tuesday to a two-year, entry-level contract after the 23-year-old had 33 points (15 goals, 18 assists) in 40 games during his second season at Western Michigan University.
