Lines are the same versus the Canucks tonight as they were against the Canadiens.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • A GOOD SECONDARY: Oh, did you see the two goals scored by the bottom six in Saturday’s 4-3 win over the Habs? More of those. Get Russell involved, it’ll be great. Either one.
  • THEIR LINE: Vancouver’s got one really good line. It’s the Elias Pettersson - Brock Boeser - J.T. Miller line. This is the heavy lifting line for the Canucks. Stop this line, and you’ve got a good shot at taking two points.
  • OUR LINE: Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl currently combine for 121 points. Let the good times roll.

Big divisional matchup. Let’s go.
