The Canucks will play back-to-back games 6 times between January 19 and April 27.
The first game against the Los Angeles Kings is Monday, January 28. They play LA 3 times this shortened season.
The first game against Duncan (The Ass) Keith and the Chicago Blackhawks is Friday, February 1 on TSN. Make Keith spit teeth! 3 games total against Chicago this season.
All games against the Western Conference only.
