Today on October 7, the Vancouver Canucks won against the Arizona Coyotes with a match score of 4-0. Do note this was a preseason match.
Vancouver Canucks are good and they showed up without Clayton Keller, Zack Kassian, Shayne Gostisbehere, adn Nick Schmaltz and still won.
Bruce Boudreau told columnists Friday morning that Ilya Mikheyev and Brock Boeser were both near a return so those forward lines will be shuffled a piece one would anticipate.
Quinn Hughes is a (probably) solid scratch in this one, so he’ll attract for Christian Wolanin, one would anticipate.
Mid-game, GM Patrik Allvin, pulled off an exchange, including tough defenceman Riley Stillman with everything else, exchanging away Jason Dickinson.
It was a move mostly in response to a minor physical issue emergency on the Canucks’ blue line — Tyler Myers (lower-body) and Travis Dermott (blackout) are both out — and furthermore part of the way a work to fabricate somewhat more cap space, Allvin recognized.
However, the on-ice exertion made a difference and keeping in mind that the Canucks would have gotten a kick out of the chance to confront a group playing a little higher rhythm than these under gunned Coyotes, it was as yet serious areas of strength for a, lead trainer Bruce Boudreau said post-game.
