The Canucks are off to a decent start in these warmup matches for their 50th anniversary season, having won 2 of their first three games and perhaps most importantly, not having suffered any injuries in the process. They’re heading down to Utah on Saturday for a game against the Los Angeles Kings, but before that they have the Oilers to deal with as they’re in Edmonton tonight.

The Canucks took on the Oilers Tuesday night and pulled off a 3rd period comeback, erasing a 2-1 3rd period lead with 3 goals to take a 4-2 decision. Thatcher Demko put in a solid performance Tuesday night, but he rests in favour of the Canucks #1 Jacob Markstrom, who will play in his first preseason contest tonight.
