It’s do or die time for the Canucks right now as a 3-0 deficit to the Kings would almost certainly toll the bell on their season.
- Jonathan Quick continues to be the top goaltender of the postseason in my eyes. While the Canucks haven’t thoroughly tested him the way we’ve seen them test other goaltenders this season thanks to their anemic power play, Quick has answered the call every time he has needed to.
- Cory Schneider is being called into action tonight for the Canucks despite Roberto Luongo’s solid play to this point in the series. Schneider will need to match Quick at the other end in hopes that he gives the Canucks the energy boost they need to overcome this slump.
- No Daniel Sedin tonight and he still hasn’t joined the team in Los Angeles. Byron Bitz is still suspended. Andrei Loktionov remains in the lineup for the Kings as neither Kyle Clifford or Brad Richardson are ready to re-enter the series.
