Vancouver Canucks Notes: Simmer Pick, Stars Under the Gun



The Dallas Stars are almost as desperate as the Vancouver Canucks. Yes, they hold down one of the two wild card spots in the Western Conference, but there’s some anxious clubs nipping at their heels and the next three games will not be easy.

After this crucial head-to-head against one of their main pursuers, should the Stars lose, they’re off to face the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames on back-to-back nights to complete three games in four days by Thursday.

Former Vancouver Canucks winger and current Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill gives us a little audio preview of tonight’s proceedings down below. “Know your Foe” I like to call it, and Nill has a message for Canucks fans.

This is truly a multi-media preview. Simmer’s pick’s, or in this case, pick, is above.

With Bo Horvat and Tanner Pearson out of the line-up and Brock Boeser and Matthew Highmore back from injury, here’s what the Vancouver Canucks looked like at morning skate.

“They’re really important additions to our team,” Canucks Head Coach Bruce Boudreau said of Boeser and Highmore. “I think they’re excited to play too. They want to be a part of this.”
