Welcome to the final road trip of this long, disappointing season. The last three games have all but killed the fantasy that Vancouver might pick at the top of the draft, but even Henrik Sedin is warning management not to be seduced by those results into thinking the Canucks are better than they actually are.
Tonight's focus, with Bob Cole in the booth, will be on nostalgia. For the Edmonton Oilers own sake, though, I hope tonight helps them let go of the past. I think it's clear that excessive reverence for The Boys on the Bus led them to make mistakes at the draft and try to build a lineup completely unsuited to an era where defense, goaltending and coaching have all evolved.
Canucks will go with the same lineup that Beat LA.
Daniel Sedin -- Henrik Sedin -- Jannik Hansen
Derek Dorsett -- Bo Horvat -- Emerson Etem
Jared McCann -- Markus Granlund -- Jake Virtanen
Andrey Pedan -- Brendan Gaunce -- Alexandre Burrows
Dan Hamhuis -- Chris Tanev
Ben Hutton -- Nikita Tryamkin
Matt Bartkowski -- Alex Biega
Edmonton will close Northlands Coliseum like this.
Taylor Hall -- Leon Draisaitl -- Iiro Pakarinen
Patrick Maroon -- Connor McDavid -- Jordan Eberle
Lauri Korpikoski -- Ryan Nugent-Hopkins -- Nail Yakupov
Matt Hendricks -- Anton Lander -- Zack Kassian
Andrej Sekera -- Mark Fayne
Griffin Reinhart -- Jordan Oesterle
Darnell Nurse -- Adam Pardy
Go Canucks Go!
