We arrive at the last weekend of the season with nothing to cheer for but draft position or playing the spoiler. If the Canucks lose out, their will better the odds that the draft lottery balls won’t hurt them. Win out and they can deny the Edmonton Oilers a shot at the Pacific Division title.

Nikolay Goldobin skates with the Twins and gets power play time with Bo Horvat. Reid Boucher replaces the injured Sven Baertschi on a line with Horvat and Brock Boeser.

The Canucks will also hand out individual player awards tonight. Who is your choice for:

Most Valuable Player?

Best Defenseman?

Unsung Hero?

Most Exciting Player?

Enjoy the game, people! Coconuts go!
