Eddie Lack allowed three goals on seven shots and got the hook after one period in Game Four of Canucks series with Calgary on Tuesday.
He wasn't at fault for the first two power-play goals he let in but the third goal was one he would have liked back off the stick of T.J. Brodie. The move to Miller was most likely a move to give the Canucks some kind of boost going in the third period. Ryan Miller makes his first appearance in the playoffs. Apr 21 - 11:19 PM

Eddie Lack allowed four goals on 27 shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Calgary.

The Canucks now trail the Flames 2-1 in the series. It's the first time in the series that Lack has allowed more than two goals in a game. Calgary scored two goals on Lack in the first period, and two more in the third period. It will be interesting to see if Vancouver will turn to Lack for game four or if they will go to Ryan Miller.

Eddie Lack will get the start in Game Three on Sunday night against Calgary.

With the series knotted at one, Lack will look to help his Canucks take their first lead of the series. Lack has turned away 50 of 53 pucks sent his way, and could have conceivably led his team to a Game One victory had it not been for Kris Russell beating him with less than 30 second left.

Eddie Lack was not happy that Brandon Bollig had him down on the ice in the second period and took his time getting up.

"I kind of lost it a little bit because Bollig kind of had me in a choke hold and that usually doesn’t happen," Lack said. "So I lost it a little bit but I took a minute and I tried to focus on my breathing and everything." Lack should get the start in Game 3 as he has given up only three goals over two games and Ryan Miller is very rusty at this time.

Eddie Lack made 22 saves and recorded his first career playoff victory on Friday night, 4-1 over Calgary to tie the series at one.

Lack was simply sensational, stopping 19 of the 20 shots he saw over the final 40 minutes. It seems safe to say that it's Lack's crease until he shows that he's unfit to guard it.
Apr 18 - 3:24 AM

Eddie Lack will get the start in Game Two on Wednesday night against Calgary.

Lack was solid in Wednesday's 2-1 Game One loss but he did 28 saves. While Lack has dropped each of his last two games versus Calgary, he boasts an overall record of 3-2-0 with a shutout and eight goals against on 130 combined shots.
Apr 17 - 5:55 PM

Eddie Lack turned aside 26 shots but it wasn't enough in Vancouver's 2-1 series opening loss to Calgary on Wednesday.

Lack was spotted the one goal lead but couldn't hold off the pesky Flames who came hard in the third period and beat him for two goals. It was the 27 year-old's NHL playoff debut and he showed no real signs of nerve as the net appears to be his for the time being while Ryan Miller gets back up to speed. It will likely take a big momentum change or a questionable start to pry Lack from the net at this point. This wasn't it.
Apr 16 - 1:34 AM

Coach Willie Desjardins has confirmed that Eddie Lack will be in goal for Game 1 against Calgary.

It was expected that Lack would start the playoffs even though Ryan Miller returned to action in Vancouver's regular-season finale. Miller allowed five goals on 28 shots to Edmonton in a 6-5 overtime win. Lack has played well for the Canucks since Miller got injured.
Apr 15 - 2:07 PM

Eddie Lack is slated to get the start in the first game of the playoffs.

Ryan Miller is getting his first start since February 21 on Saturday but he is rusty at this time so the Canucks will go with Lack to start. Lack is 18-13-4 with a 2.45 GAA and a .921 save percentage.
Apr 11 - 9:36 AM

Eddie Lack recorded his second shutout of season during Thursday's 5-0 win over the Coyotes.

Lack stopped all 28 pucks sent his way Thursday night in perhaps his finest start of the season. Sure, it was against the Coyotes, but Lack potentially ends his regular season in stellar fashion. And that'll prove to be a big boost if Ryan Miller falters in the playoffs. The win brings Lack's record up to 18-13-4 with a .921 save percentage and a 2.45 GAA.
Apr 10 - 2:08 AM

Eddie Lack will play between the pipes on Thursday.

Ryan Miller has returned from a knee injury, but the Canucks will still probably enter the playoffs with Lack as their starter. That's due to a combination of Miller being rusty and Lack being solid in his absence. If Lack struggles though, then Vancouver will probably be quick to go to Miller.
Apr 9 - 2:19 PM

Eddie Lack made 36 saves on 37 shots in Monday night’s shootout win over the Los Angeles Kings.

The Canucks were able to score a late third period goal against Jonathan Quick and the Kings Monday night, sending the game to overtime, then Chris Higgins was able to score the lone shootout goal, giving the Canucks the 2-1 victory. Lack won for the first time in three contests, improving his record to 17-13-4 with a 2.52 goals-against-average and .919 save percentage on the season. The Canucks have just two games remaining and currently sit in second place in the Pacific division with 97 points.
Apr 7 - 1:14 AM

Eddie Lack will be back in net when the Canucks face the visiting Los Angeles Kings Monday night.

Lack has played in 19 of the Canucks' last 20 games. He was given the day off from practice Sunday so he could get some rest. On the season, Lack is 16-13-4 with a 2.56 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage. His heavy workload is the result of the injury to first-string Ryan Miller.
Apr 6 - 6:52 PM

Eddie Lack received a maintenance day off on Sunday.

He will get the start on Monday at home to the Kings. Lack has played in 19 of the Canucks last 20 games so he could use the rest that was afforded him on Sunday. He is 16-13-4 this season with a 2.56 GAA and a .917 save percentage.
