Canucks look to extend division-lead with win against Flames


Tonight at 8:00 PM MT, the Calgary Flames are looking to knock off the Northwest Division-leading Vancouver Canucks on their own ice. Vancouver is coming off a big 4-0 win against Edmonton on Thursday, while the Flames had a quick few hours after just losing 2-1 in a game in California against the Sharks the night before.

This will be the fourth meeting between the two teams of the season. Vancouver won the first two, while Calgary has won the most recent game, on March 3, as the Flames beat the Canucks at home 4-2.

The 13-19-4 Flames are lead by center Mike Cammalleri who has 26 points in 33 games. On the other hand, Vancouver is lead by 32-year-old Swedish center Henrik Sedin, who has 33 points in 37 games.

Cory Scheider will get the start for the ‘Nucks tonight, while it is unconfirmed who will start for Calgary. It is projected that Kipprusoff will start again despite getting the nod last night in San Jose.
