After a two-game sweep on the road against the Kings and Ducks, the Vancouver Canucks return to home ice at Rogers Arena to take on the St. Louis Blues. Both the Canucks and Blues are off to a good start early, winning three of their first four games. The Canucks have yet to lose in regulation.
Jake Virtanen will make his home debut for the Canucks tonight, and you can be sure there will be plenty of Virtanen's friends and family in the stands. Virtanen, of course, is a local product out of New Westminster, just about 21 kilometers southeast of Vancouver.
Jared McCann is also in the lineup, according to head coach Willie Desjardins.
"They've played well enough to be in the line-up and that's why they're in" - Desjardins on Virtanen and McCann both in #Canucks line-up.— Vancouver Canucks (@VanCanucks) October 16, 2015
This game kicks off a five-game homestand at Rogers Arena for the Canucks. Here's to hoping they can remain unbeaten in regulation to start the year.
