Ryan Miller allowed three goals on 33 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Miller is coming off a 5-4 OT win over Chicago, but he's dropped six of his last seven decisions (1-4-2). The Canucks goalie owns an 18-23-6 record with a 2.79 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage. Miller's play has been a lot better than his numbers suggest, but the fact that he's on a poor team has really put a damper on his fantasy value.

Henrik Sedin scored Vancouver's only goal in their 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Sedin scored the game's first goal at the 13:38 mark of the first period, but his team wasn't able to find the back of the net again. He's now scored in back-to-back games and he has 15 goals and 30 assists in 73 contests. Alex Edler and Troy Stecher picked up the assists on the goal.

Ryan Miller is expected to take on the Blues on Thursday.

It's been a rough season for Miller, who comes in with an 18-22-6 record with a 2.78 GAA and a .915 save percentage thus far. He's also allowed at least four goals in each of his last three games.

Nikolay Goldobin will skate with Brandon Sutter and Jack Skille on Thursday against the Blues.

"He's got good skill and we need him to push the pace," coach Willie Desjardins said of Goldobin. All things considered, this may become a productive line down the stretch. Sutter has managed 17 goals and 31 points in 71 games this season, while Skille has picked up eight points in 53 games. The youngster Goldobin already has a goal in three games with the Canucks, this after posting 36 goals and 85 points in 106 games with AHL San Jose since last season.

Markus Granlund has played almost the entire 2016-17 campaign with broken ligaments in his wrist.

The Canucks said that Granlund "had an ongoing wrist injury" when they announced that he would be shutdown to undergo surgery, but the extent of the issue wasn't initially revealed. As it turns out, he broke the ligaments on October 25th, but still managed to score 19 goals and 32 points in 69 games this season. He's expected to need three-to-five months to recover, so he should be okay for the 2017-18 campaign.

Nikolay Goldobin (illness) will get back in the lineup Thursday at St. Louis.

"He'll be happy to be back, but it may take a bit for him to get going," said coach Willie Desjardins. Goldobin has been out for the last six games with an illness.
Mar 22 - 5:31 PM

Jayson Megna is out with an upper-body injury.

He will likely miss the rest of Vancouver's road trip, which ends Sunday against Winnipeg. Megna has eight points in 53 games this campaign.
Mar 22 - 5:28 PM

Joseph Cramarossa isn't expected to play for the rest of Vancouver's road trip due to a foot injury.

He is currently having trouble walking, so he is slated to miss the Canucks' next three games starting with Thursday's match against St. Louis.

Ryan Miller allowed four goals on 44 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 OT win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Canucks built up a 4-1 lead in the third period, but Chicago managed to score three unanswered goals to force overtime. In the extra period, Daniel Sedin gave his team the win. The victory also puts an end to Miller's personal five-game losing skid. The Canucks goalie now has an 18-22-6 record with a 2.78 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage.

Daniel Sedin picked up a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 OT win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Sedin registered the primary assist on Henrik Sedin's first-period goal before scoring the game-winning goal in the overtime period. It was Daniel's first goal in 10 contests. The Canucks held a 4-1 lead in the third period, but they watched it evaporate over the last 15 minutes. Thankfully, Daniel was able to give his team two points in the standings. He has 14 goals and 26 assists in 72 games this season. Brandon Sutter (twice),

Philip Larsen will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Including tonight, Larsen has been scratched in eight of his last nine contests. Joseph Labate will also watch from the press box. Neither player will have any fantasy value.

Ryan Miller will be between the pipes for Tuesday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Miller got the night off against Edmonton on Saturday, but he's dropped each of his last five decisions and nine of his last 10. He'll enter tonight's action with a 17-22-6 record, a 2.76 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage.
Mar 21 - 8:07 PM

Jack Skille noted that he will return to the lineup Tuesday against Chicago.

The veteran winger has not played since Feb. 18th with an undisclosed injury. Through 52 games this season he's posted seven points and 71 hits, while averaging 8:41 of ice time per game. "There's no special recipe on how to ease back in," Skille said, "I'm ready to battle and happy just to be back."
Mar 21 - 1:33 PM

Nikolay Goldobin (illness) probably won't play in Tuesday's contest.

Goldobin was on the ice Monday, but he lost 15 pounds while battling the flu so it might take a bit of time for him to get back into game shape. He has a goal in five points this season.
Mar 21 - 9:48 AM

Jacob Markstrom won't travel with the Canucks to Chicago because of food poisoning.

He also didn't skate on Monday, but he may join the team on their upcoming road trip. Markstrom has been sidelined since late February because of a lower-body injury.
