Vancouver Canucks (6-4-5) at Columbus Blue Jackets (4-11-0)

4:00 PM PT - Nationwide Arena - Columbus, OH

TV: Sportsnet Pacific - Radio: TSN 1040

The Vancouver Canucks are in Columbus tonight to take on the Blue Jackets. It'll be the first time the Canucks have faced-off against their former head coach John Tortorella, who was hired by Columbus after the Blue Jackets started the season 0-7-0.

Since Tortorella's hiring, the Blue Jackets have gone 4-4-0 and recently won two of their three games on the road against the Kings, Sharks and Ducks. They'll look for their first win on home ice this year tonight.

Meanwhile, Jacob Markstrom will make his season debut tonight for the Canucks. He was recalled from Utica after a two-game conditioning stint, and will look to help Vancouver snap their three game-losing streak.

Here are the lines from warmup:
