Vancouver Canucks vs. Chicago Blackhawks
7:00 PM PT - Rogers Arena - Vancouver, BC
TV: CBC - Radio: TSN 1040

The Vancouver Canucks return home to Rogers Arena tonight to face the defending Stanley Cup champions as the Chicago Blackhawks roll into town. The Canucks struggled on their recent road trip, losing six of seven games. They hope returning back home will spark a change in the right direction and snap a season-long four-game losing streak.

Brandon Prust is back in the lineup. Prust missed the last 11 games with an ankle injury. Luca Sbisa is expected to be good to play after suffering a hand injury on Wednesday, while Radim Vrbata looks to be a game-time decision. Vrbata sat out Wednesday's loss to the Jets.

Ryan Miller should be in net for the Canucks while Corey Crawford should get the call for the Blackhawks. The puck drops at 7 on CBC and Sportsnet.
