Ryan Miller faced 40 shots and let two of them pass in regulation as the Vancouver Canucks shook the Toronto Maples Leafs in a 3-2 win Saturday night.

Miller also let one puck get past him in the shootout. Miller has been much better at home with a record of 4-3-0 compared to 1-6-0 away, so he should be saved for those situations.
Dec 4 - 12:44 AM

Markus Granlund and Bo Horvat scored during the shootout as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 Saturday night.

Neither shooter was able to find the back of the net during regulation when that would have been a difference maker before overtime. Sven Baerstchi and Daniel Sedin had the regulation markers. Both the Canucks and Leafs entered the game second from the bottom of their division, but the two points earned by Vancouver did not move them up. The Leafs single point will allow them to catch the Detroit Red Wings, however.
Dec 3 - 10:35 PM

Joseph Labate and Alex Biega will be scratched against the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

The 23-year-old Labate is still searching for his first career NHL point through three games, in which he's posted seven PIMs and four hits. However he's seen an average of just 5:04 per night, so we wouldn't expect much.
Dec 3 - 5:26 PM

Ryan Miller will be Vancouver's starter on Saturday.

Miller has surrendered seven goals in his last two starts. He has a 2.80 GAA and .907 save percentage in 13 contests.
Dec 2 - 3:41 PM

Ryan Miller allowed three goals on 24 shots in 3-1 loss to Anaheim on Thursday.

Miller kept his team in the game through first half of this contest but arguably lost it on a soft goal off the rush to Andrew Cogliano that ended it. It's been an awful start for the veteran netminder who has battled injuries as well as subpar play in front of him. He has a pedestrian 2.80 GAA and .907 save percentage to go with just four wins in 13 appearances this season. The Canucks get the Leafs on Saturday night next.
Dec 2 - 3:01 AM

Henrik Sedin scored the only goal for the Canucks in a 3-1 loss to Anaheim on Thursday.

The Sedins were snake bitten nearly the entire night but when re-united with Loui Eriksson late they found a way to turn a fortunate bounce in the Ducks zone into the only goal their team could muster. The Canucks captain has six goals and nine assists for 15 points in 24 games. He and his brother continue to get the most ice-time on this team and perhaps more importantly, all the power-play time.
Dec 2 - 2:46 AM

Ryan Miller will face Anaheim on Thursday night.

The veteran netminder has been much better at home and against Western foes this season. He's posted a .922 save percentage and a 2.17 GAA at home, and a .926 SV% and a 2.27 GAA against Western teams. Familiarity can be a boon, sometimes.
Dec 1 - 7:17 PM

Henrik Sedin registered two assists in Vancouver's 5-4 victory Tuesday night.

Sedin has five goals and 14 points in 23 games this season. That puts him on pace for 50 points, which isn't good by his old standards, but might be roughly what we should expect from him at the age of 36.
Nov 30 - 10:15 AM

Philip Larsen (illness) was activated from the IL on Tuesday November 29.

Larsen played for the first time since Nov. 7. He had no points in 15:39 minutes in his return.
Nov 30 - 2:29 AM

Sven Baertschi scored the game winning goal with 2:35 remaining in the third to lift the Vancouver Canucks 5-4 in a win over the Minnesota Wild Tuesday night.

That was his second goal of the night as he led the Canucks in a busy third period. The Canucks scored with Loui Eriksson at the 1:09 minute mark, Baertschi gave them a little insurance at 2:08, and then slightly more than a minute later Jason Zucker scored unassisted to close the gap to one. Another goal by the Wild’s Ryan Sutter tied the game, but Baertschi did not want to see overtime. With this outing, he doubled his goal production for the year to four.
Nov 30 - 1:16 AM

Ryan Miller faced 42 shots and gave up four goals, but it was enough to help the Vancouver Canucks defeat the Minnesota Wild 5-4 Tuesday night.

Miller’s save percentage of .905 was only slightly better than the opposing goalie Darcy Kuemper’s .857, but it was enough for the win. Miller has been a little easy to get past recently with six of his last eight games ending with save percentages of .905 or worse.
Nov 30 - 1:03 AM

Joseph Labate will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Minnesota Wild.

Labate had played in each of Vancouver's three games since he was recalled from the minors. Alex Biega will also watch the game from the press box.

Ryan Miller will be between the pipes for Tuesday's game against the Minnesota Wild.

He has a 3-8-0 record with a 2.67 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage. He's picked up wins in two of his last three starts.
Nov 29 - 9:41 PM

Sven Baertschi is ready to return to the lineup on Tuesday night when Vancouver hosts Minnesota.

He is projected to play alongside Bo Horvat and Alex Burrows. Baertschi has recorded two goals and seven assists in 20 games this season, but seven of those points have come in his last seven appearances.
Nov 29 - 5:52 PM

Alexandre Grenier has been returned to AHL Utica.

He didn't see any NHL action during his recall. Grenier dressed in six games with the Canucks last season and he didn't record a point.
