Coming off a well-managed loss to the red rot Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday — a rare game in which the Vancouver Canucks paid the winning coach, regardless of outcome — the Canucks begin a three-game pre-Christmas stretch against Western Canadian opponents. Nic Petan will draw into the Winnipeg Jets lineup tonight, replacing Chris Thorburn. Jacob Markstrom gets the start in net for Vancouver.
Q: Is there another pair of undrafted NHL brother to both play in the NHL? Tanev v Tanev is a great storyline for tonight’s game.
I hope things are winding down for you as the holidays fast approach and you can settle in to catch some hockey during the break. Coconuts Go!
