Anders Nilsson News

Goalie

Vancouver Canucks

Nilsson led the Canucks onto the ice for warmups, contrary to an earlier announcement from the team that Markstrom would start.

Markstrom is reportedly out with an illness, so the Canucks will turn to Nilsson for the third time in four nights. He allowed four goals on 30 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Sharks on Thursday. He draws a rough matchup tonight against the Bruins.

Nilsson will start in San Jose on Thursday.

Nilsson stopped all 20 shots he faced in relief of Jacob Markstrom last night vs. the Panthers. Nilsson has struggled this season, posting a 3.39 GAA and a .906 SV%, and remarkably hasn’t won a game since November 30th against Nashville. He draws an awful matchup tonight as the Canucks are on a back-to-back in San Jose, who are expected to experiment with Brent Burns on their top forward line.
