Steady Canucks defenceman Chris Tanev will miss 3-4 weeks after a Steven Stamkos shot broke his finger. This likely means "done for the season." Yannick Weber will slot in as the full time 6th defenceman. Andrew Alberts is still out with a concussion.
The Canucks' slumping penalty kill gets a much-needed boost tonight as Brad Richardson returns to the lineup for the first time since D-day. He was out with an upper-body injury. He will likely center David Booth and Zack Kassian.
