Vancouver Canucks (3-1-2) vs. Washington Capitals (4-1-0)
Time: 7:00 PM PT - Rogers Arena - Vancouver, BC
TV: Sportsnet 360 - Radio: TSN 1040/TSN1040.ca

The Vancouver Canucks look to end their two-game losing streak tonight when they face Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals at Rogers Arena. The Canucks have shuffled their lineup a bit, with Radim Vrbata returning to the Sedin line in hopes of registering his first point of the season. Vrbata is the only player who has played in all six games without scoring a point.

Jannik Hansen moves to the second line with Alex Burrows and Brandon Sutter, while Jared McCann will center the fourth line alongside Brandon Prust and Derek Dorsett. McCann takes Adam Cracknell's spot in the lineup.

The third line, AKA the Kid Line of Sven Baertschi, Bo Horvat and Jake Virtanen, remains intact.

Yannick Webber is a scratch once again. Webber has played in just one game so far this year.

Ryan Miller gets the start in net once again and has a 1.80 GAA with a .935 save percentage in the first six games of the year so far.
