The Vancouver Canucks are still searching for their first home win of the year tonight at Rogers Arena. If they want to snag that first win, they'll need to be the first team this year to knock off the Montreal Canadiens, who are a perfect 9-0-0 to start the year.

Ryan Miller is in net for the Canucks tonight and he'll be going up against Carey Price, the league's top goaltender with an astounding 1.29 GAA so far this season.

Vancouver's lineups are generally the same for the most part, with a couple minor tweaks. Jake Virtanen will now skate with Alex Burrows and Bradon Sutter while Jannik Hansen moves down to the third line with Bo Horvat and Sven Baertschi.

Dan Hamhuis will not be in the lineup tonight due to a lower body injury.
