After suffering another blown 3rd period lead in their 4-3 overtime loss to the Dallas Stars on Thursday night, the Vancouver Canucks are right back at it tonight when they take on the Arizona Coyotes in Glendale.
As a result of playing their second game in as many nights, Richard Bachman will make his Canucks debut between the pipes tonight. In six games with the Edmonton Oilers last season, Bachman went 3-2 while posting a .911 save percentage with a GAA of 2.84.
In other Canucks news, Brandon Prust will be out 4-6 weeks after injuring his ankle in Tuesday's win over the Canadiens. Prust rolled his ankle pretty bad during the play and immediately went down in visible pain, grabbing the ankle. After the game, he had a boot on over the foot.
