Nick Bonino had two assists in Vancouver's 5-4 shootout win over Nashville on Tuesday.

Bonino extended his point streak to three games. He has 15 goals and 37 points in 70 contests in 2014-15. It's worth noting that he's been streaky this season with him scoring 19 points in his first 23 contests and 12 points in his last 17 games, but just six points in the 30 games that separate those two hot patches.

Alex Burrows of the Canucks rewarded his fantasy owners by stuffing the stat sheet in a 5-4 shootout win over Nashville Tuesday night.

The power forward not only registered a shorthanded goal and an assist in the Vancouver victory, but he was also assessed 15 penalty minutes late in the contest resulting from a collision with Nashville's Paul Gaustad. Linden Vey, Jannik Hansen and Chris Higgins all scored in the victory.

Eddie Lack allowed four goals on 38 shots Tuesday night, but received a victory as the Canucks defeated Nashville in a shootout by a score of 5-4.

Lack has been a godsend for the Canucks during the injury-mandated absence of Ryan Miller and has actually posted stronger statistics than the ailing incumbent. Fantasy owners who pounced on him early have reaped the benefits.

Ryan Stanton and Brandon McMillan will be scratched against the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.

It will be Stanton's 10th straight game in the stands. Though he's managed to post 11 points, 33 PIMs, 93 hits, and 106 blocks over 53 games this season. McMillan meanwhile has seen just seven games with the Canucks since coming over from Arizona in mid-February.

Mar 31 - 10:19 AM

Kevin Bieksa had an assist in a 4-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Monday.

Bieksa has three goals and 12 points in 54 games in 2014-15. He has surpassed the 40-point milestone on three occasions over his career, but the 33-year-old defenseman is not a safe bet to do that in any future campaigns.

Eddie Lack gave his Canucks' playoff pursuit another push with a 4-1 win over the Blues on Monday night.

Outside of being heavily screened on Zbynek Michalek's tally, Lack was sensational while making 23 saves during the victory. Vancouver has now secured seven of 10 possible points over his last five starts. The win raises his record to 30-14-11 with a .920 save percentage and a 2.44 GAA this season.
Mar 31 - 1:02 AM

Radim Vrbata maintained his scoring ways in Monday's 4-1 win over the Blues.

Vrbata recorded a goal and an assist for his fourth multi-point game over his last five. He's tallied three goals and nine points during that time. For the season Vrbata continues to lead the team with 31 goals, and ranks third on the team in points with 60.
Mar 31 - 12:47 AM

Chris Tanev recorded two assists in Monday's big 4-1 win over St. Louis.

Tanev now has consecutive games with a pair of assists. He also contributed four blocks during his 20:22 of work. For the season, Tanev now has 18 assist and 20 points, both career highs in addition to his 159 blocks.
Mar 31 - 12:32 AM

Brandon McMillan and Ryan Stanton will be healthy scratches Monday night in St. Louis.

McMillan has played in only one game since March 9th and has not recorded a point in 28 straight games. He has a goal and two assists and an ugly minus 20 rating in 57 games this season with 50 of those games coming with the Coyotes. Stanton has not seen game action since March 12 and has registered three goals and 11 points with a plus 10 rating in 53 contests this year.
Mar 30 - 7:56 PM

Eddie Lack will get the nod in goal Monday night when the Canucks visit the Blues.

With Ryan Miller still sidelined, Lack will start his fourth consecutive game Monday. He gave up five goals in his only other start versus the Blues this season but has been solid in his other 35 appearances this season. He owns a 29-14-11 record, 2.48 goals-against-average, and .919 save percentage overall this year.
Mar 30 - 5:01 PM

Ryan Miller (knee) took shots on Saturday from goalie coach Rollie Melanson.

Miller has been out five weeks thus far and while the original prognosis was four-six weeks, he may not be able to return until the playoffs. Just an update for those of you wondering about his status.
Mar 29 - 11:18 AM

Chris Higgins scored on the power play Saturday.

It was only the fourth goal of the season for the Canucks second power play unit and that has to be pretty scary to most Vancouver fans. It was Higgins second power play goal of the season. He now has 11 goals and 33 points and a plus-eight rating.
