This is a back to Bach for the sharks. Gonna be the toughest game yet though.
Schneider needs the start here. Start Lu on Monday
I don't know. I think this is Luongo's game, then give Schneider the Kings on Monday. Then again, Schneider is coming off a shutout. Who starts this game is more up in the air then last night's game IMO.
I'm going to keep the expectations lower and just hope for another solid defensive (and face-off) game from JS. Took Hodgson 10 games to get 3 points last season and I'm not going to expect any more than that from Schroeder.
Same goes for Kassian, these 3 goals are nice but I'm going to keep my expectations grounded. He will go through spells of inconsistency.
This will be a tough game. Sharks are really off to a good start and their stars are having a bit of a comeback season after the last two years (Thornton, Marleau).
Canucks need to stay out of the box against these guys. Gonna be a tough haul on Hank, Schroeder, Burr and Lappy.... we're light down the middle so the wingers are gonna have to come back hard. Really... we should just shadow Marleau in our defensive zone.
I predict a tight one through 2 with the good guys coming out on top with a 4-2 win.
