Nilsson will start Tuesday against the Avalanche.

Nilsson was phenomenal on Saturday, stopping 44 of 45 shots in the Canucks’ 6-1 victory over the Bruins. The win was the first since November 30th for Nilsson, ending a losing streak of eight consecutive starts. He draws a decent matchup at home tonight against the Avalanche.

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.

Markstrom led the Canucks onto the ice for warmups.

Markstrom allowed two goals on 39 shots in the Canucks loss in Florida on Tuesday. With Anders Nilsson going last night, Markstrom is expected to draw back into the crease tonight. He has lost three of his last five starts but has gone 5-1-0 in his career against the Hurricanes. He might have a chance at a W tonight with Scott Darling in the opposite crease.
