3) Nashville is just a weaker team...vs the Canucks who are cup contenders again with Luongo and Schneider in net.

Instead, Gustavsson gets a much tougher team for his 1st start and we played the night before. Not good planning in my opinion...if we can get a win that would be a big upset.
Agreed. but doesn't matter now. Howard is starting, McCollum recalled. Gustavsson possible groin injury
