Brock Boeser scored the lone goal for Vancouver in a 4-1 loss to Anaheim Tuesday night.

Boeser snagged his second goal in only his third NHL start. His first came on March 25 in a 4-2 win against Minnesota. Boeser made three shots on goal against Anaheim in 15:51 of ice time.

Ryan Miller gave up four goals Tuesday night as the Canucks lost 4-1 to the Ducks.

Miller gave up too many goals to be good fantasy value, but the loss was not entirely his fault. He faced 39 shots, which gave him a respectable save percentage of .897. This was the 12th time this season that he faced 39 or more shots. He has now lost half of those.

Griffen Molino and the Vancouver Canucks have agreed to a two-year, entry-level contract.

He notched 15 goals and 33 points in 40 games with Western Michigan University during the 2016-17 season. "Griffen is a competitive two-way forward with good speed and defensive instincts on the penalty kill," said GM Jim Benning. "He's made significant contributions to Western Michigan's success over two seasons and we're excited to have him join our organization and take the next step in his development."

Ryan Miller will start Tuesday versus Anaheim.

He has registered one win in the last eight starts. Miller has played well in his last two outings, but he lost them both. His record has dropped to 18-24-6 this season with a 2.77 goals-against average and .915 save percentage.

Erik Gudbranson (wrist) skated on Tuesday.

He was skating early in the morning and got back on the ice at the end of the session. Gudbranson doesn't have a timetable for his return. He hasn't played since Dec. 13 after he had wrist surgery.
Mar 28 - 2:48 PM

Loui Eriksson (lower body) could be ready to play Friday.

He has been sidelined since Mar. 5 because of a lower-body injury.
Mar 28 - 2:44 PM

Troy Stecher (upper body) might be available to return Friday.

Coach Willie Desjardins said that the defenseman is doing better and is a possibility to return sooner than expected.

Brock Boeser played on Vancouver's top PP unit with the Sedin twins on Sunday.

Boeser didn't score, but he had a couple of decent chances. The rookie also showed a little fatigue, as this was his third game in three nights (one in the NCAA, two in the NHL). "We hardly ever play three games in three days in (college)," Boeser said. "That was the first time in a long time for me. I could definitely feel my legs getting tired out there, toward the end of shifts especially." His fantasy upside may be limited this season, but if his current usage is any indication, he'll have ample opportunity to put up points next season.

Ryan Miller allowed two goals on 32 shots Sunday night, but the Canucks fell 2-1 against Winnipeg.

Miller fell to 18-24-6 this season with a 2.77 goals against average and .915 save percentage. Miller has just one win in his past eight games.
Mar 26 - 11:22 PM

Alexander Edler scored Vancouver's only goal in the Canucks' 2-1 loss to Winnipeg on Sunday night.

Edler now has three points in his last four games. The 30-year-old now has five goals and 20 points in 61 games this season. Edler has now matched his point output from last season.
Mar 26 - 11:16 PM

Troy Stecher suffered an upper-body injury in Sunday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Stecher fell into the boards awkwardly after a collision with Jets forward Brandon Tanev. The Canucks have already announced that his night is over. We'll consider him day-to-day for now.
Mar 26 - 9:17 PM

Philip Larsen will be a healthy scratch in Sunday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Larsen has suited up in just one of his team's last 11 games, so it's not surprising to see him sit tonight. He has one goals and five assists in 24 games this season. Joseph Cramarossa will miss the game because of a foot injury.
Mar 26 - 7:47 PM

The Vancouver Canucks will probably start Ryan Miller on Sunday.

Miller would be making his third start in the span of four games. He has a 2.79 GAA and .915 save percentage in 48 games this season.
Mar 26 - 4:18 PM

Jack Skille suffered an ankle injury on Saturday.

It appears that Skille's season is over since there are only two weeks left in the season. He has only five goals and nine points in 55 games this season and he may be a bubble player next season in Vancouver.
