Avalanche vs. Canucks, Game 37: Lines, Notes & How to Watch



Canucks Avalanche

The Colorado Avalanche are officially slumping.

Coming off a fourth straight loss at the hands of the Vegas Golden Knights, they will look to snap out of it on the road, as they head to Vancouver to take on the Canucks.

Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen scored the lone goals for the Avalanche on Monday night, a game in which a sloppy second period was their ultimate downfall.

It’s possible the Avalanche will get another lineup boost when they take on the Canucks. Valeri Nichushkin and Evan Rodrigues both travelled with the team and could be options to enter the lineup if they’re feeling better.

We should learn more after morning skate.  Stay tuned for CHN for any updates.

The Canucks have had a tough season to date, and are coming off a 6-2 loss at home to the New York Islanders. Losers of three straight, they sit in sixth place in the Pacific, seven points out of a playoff spot.

The Canucks won the first matchup between these two teams back in November, defeating the Avalanche 4-3 at Ball Arena.
