Poorly managed losses like yesterday’s against the Boston Bruins will likely be the proximate cause for Vancouver missing the playoffs again this season. Having clawed back into a 3-3 tie, it was simply imperative to get something out of yesterday. Now playing the second half of a back to back with travel inbetween, today’s game will be a tall order.

Jacob Markstrom gets the start for Vancouver. No morning skate, so no word of any lineup changes yet.

Enjoy the game. Coconuts go!

And since the Canucks game is a kind of pregame for the Grammys, here’s a playlist of nominees to get you set up for the awards.
