I confess, I don’t know what to think of this year’s Vancouver Canucks team anymore. The one constant is that they play hard for the coach and for each other. So a night like tonight, when I might be inclined to write them off, they seem to have the capacity to surprise. It won’t be easy. Three games in four nights with significant travel and playing a team that lately seems to have figured it out. A loss tonight would drop their road trip record to 2-4, assuring the Canucks will spend the next two months playing out the string.

Jacob Markstrom starts for the Canucks. Jake Allen is in net for the Blues, who are playing the second of back to back games tonight. They beat Detroit 2-0 last night. Bo Horvat and Brandon Sutter both draw back in for Vancouver tonight.

Enjoy the game. Coconuts go!
