Lack looked really comfortable in this game and that has been the norm of late for the Canucks' goalie who has allowed just one goal in three of his last four starts and has four wins in five starts overall. At this standpoint he is not a downgrade from Canucks' number one Ryan Miller who is side lined with a long term injury.
