If Howard is starting, it ends a streak of 6 or 7 straight games of the Canucks playing teams backup goalies.
not just Rinne, but the previous Dallas game we played (not the last one, but one 5 games ago), Lethonen started, but was injured and replaced.
It's an odd coincidence, but it has mostly to due with injuries, and not teams starting their backups against us.. even the Wild game prior to that Dallas game, it was Harding scheduled to start, but was unable to due to his MS symptons prior to the game.
AV: Booth will take warm up. If he's good to go, he'll start on line with Lapierre & Weise.
I saw others post that he would be a game time decision, but on the fourth line even if he plays? I guess it does say start so obviously he could move up, but I was really liking Raymond/Schroeder/Booth
does anyone have the confirmed lineups if he's in? Is Kassian on the second or third line? so many questions that must be answered!
