Vancouver Canucks (3-1-1) vs. Edmonton Oilers (1-3-0)
7:00 PM PT - Rogers Arena - Vancouver BC
TV: Sportsnet - Radio: TSN 1040


The Vancouver Canucks look to rebound from their first regulation loss of the season as they take on the Edmonton Oilers tonight at Rogers Arena. With the exception of Jared McCann, the lineups should look the same tonight. We'll see the "Kid line" of Sven Baertschi, Bo Horvat and Jake Virtanen, the same line that combined for three goals and 10 points against the Oilers this preseason on October 1.


Ryan Miller will make his sixth straight start of the year as the Canucks will have a few days off after this game.


Last season, the Canucks won all five of their games against the Oilers, but many of the games were competitive efforts. Four of the five games were decided by one goal and two of the games went past regulation.
