A tough turnaround for your Vancouver Canucks as they face perennial Stanley Cup contenders after playing last night. I believe this is what they call a schedule loss. But, perhaps our boys will surprise us.

Jacob Markstrom, playing his 99th NHL game, will start. It’s his fifth time starting the second half of back to back games. He has one win and three losses in his previous second games of back to back starts, per Joey Kenward.

Anytime we get to see one of the great players in the game, like Alex Ovechkin is a nice bonus. Enjoy this one. Coconuts go!
