PROJECTED LINES (Covers.com)

Canucks. I'm not even going to project this shit. Niklas Jensen was recalled on Saturday....so what? Is Burrows ready to play? What's the deal with Kassian, really, because even 2 goals on the Sedin line hardly secures him a spot in the lineup.

Islanders

Grabovski was fucked up recently He's likely out with a concussion. Here is what they are left with..

.which is plenty enough.

Keep in mind that this is the 3rd game in 4 nights for the Canucks and god knows that's a fucking topic I repeatedly try to keep track of. But the 3rd game in 4 nights does not bode well for many. Except for the Canucks...who took the night off in New Jersey. So they should be invigorated right? RIGHT???!!
