Delivery service is a tad slow these days but Ya! It really is a must win. Not saying a three straight comeback is impossible but
rather not travel down that road.

Wild:-

18 Jordan Greenway - 12 Eric Staal - 22 Kevin Fiala
11 Zach Parise - 14 Joel Eriksson Ek - 19 Luke Kunin
17 Marcus Foligno - 27 Alex Galchenyuk - 36 Mats Zuccarello
6 Ryan Donato - 9 Mikko Koivu - 38 Ryan Hartman

20 Ryan Suter - 46 Jared Spurgeon
25 Jonas Brodin - 24 Mathew Dumba
21 Carson Soucy - 77 Brad Hunt

32 Alex Stalock -- very suspected starter
40 Devan Dubnyk

Score first, crash the net, even take a penalty but if they just do the perimeter shots then the team will lose again.

If they end up with perimeter shots, at least MOVE the puck around! Get Stalock moving side to side and actually earn some saves.

The last couple of years have led to this game. Time to see (again) if they can step it up and make some shit happen. Win or lose, this will have nothing to do with Beagle.

GO CANUCKS GO!

Time for these guys to start crashing the net and get some chaos going in the crease. They have the big bodies to do it. This game is big.

Git’er done boys!!

Hoping for a better game tonight.

When Loui played with the twins on the national team, his job was to crash the net and try to find loose pucks.
He knows the drill. Just tell him that’s his job.

And yes, I hope Loui and Jake get a shot tonight.

Patrick Johnston@risingaction
Going by the sweater colours, appears Virtanen and MacEwen were skating as options on the 3rd/4th lines.
Eriksson in blue suggests he's swapping in on Horvat's wing.
None of this is really surprising.

Canucks Twitter account deleted this picture of who was on the ice today. Green probably chased them out of the building when he saw the tweet.

So maybe Virtanen, MacEwen and Eriksson ????? just have to wait and see who's in and who's out.

Green isn’t making three changes up front. He’d be admitting that he fucked up 25% of his decisions up front. He reminds me a bit more of Willie Desjardins as we go along. The veterans can do no wrong.

Lol at Per suggesting Loui Eriksson would crash the net. You really haven’t seen many of his games the last four years, have you? He might blow a tire and glide into the goalie but he plays with about as much courage as Bambi.

Right, not unless there are injuries.

I say this because Green seemed to hint some guys might be banged-up.

2-0 Wild with an empty-netter.

Markstrom with 30 saves. Stalock with 20.

We cannot go down 0-2 in the series, so it's a must win.

Any way will do.

Good time for Benning's "foundational" players and key vets to step up. Beagle, Sutter, Eriksson. Huge money...now's the time to see the return.

I agree. If they do though, I’d imagine Elmer is on a choke chain. Bring in Gerry Gallant
