Big Game In Edmonton
The Canucks play the first of three consecutive games against the Edmonton Oilers tonight in what could turn out to be the most crucial stretch for the Canucks this season. With Edmonton two points up on Vancouver in the standings and the Canucks currently on the outside looking in, these '4 point' games are must haves. There doesn't look to be any changes to the Vancouver lineup for tonight's contest from the group that faced Detroit on Sunday.
There was a crush of media at the rink this morning to watch the teams skate. Dave Nonis was on hand as well and he talked to reporters following Vancouver's early skate.
