The Vancouver Canucks fell to the St Louis Blues 3-2 in overtime in game 3 of the playoffs series. The Canucks look to rebound tonight as they play at 7:30 pm (PST), Jacob Markstrom will most likely get the start as he stopped 47 out 49 shots he faced. A few players to watch for in tonight’s game are Bo Horvat, Elias Pettersson as well as watch for Jake Virtanen as he will have to prove his worth. On the other side of things watch out for David Perron who seems to be able to get under the skin of a lot of Vancouver players. As well as Jake Allen who replaced Jordan Binnington for the start in game 3. He proved to be a deciding point in the game for the Blues and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him stand tall again tonight.
The keys for the Canucks tonight are going to be score early and score many as if we learned anything theses playoffs one goal leads mean nothing. So they will need to get control of the game early on. On the contrary, St Louis needs to continue how they played in game 3 taking control of the game and spending majority of the game in the offensive zone. This series could drastically change for both teams this game, Vancouver could go up 3-1 and St Louis season could be nearly over, or the Blues could tie the series and switch the momentum in their favor.
