Price career stats against the Canucks:
13-2-3, 0.935sv%, 2.20 GAA

Holtby's stats against us (although with the Caps).

14-2-3, 0.939sv%, 1.81 GAA.

From SN:

"

With a 56-game schedule, Canadian division and global pandemic, we knew this would be an extraordinary season for the Vancouver Canucks.

But no one would have guessed that after four games Elias Pettersson would have more penalties (two) than points (one). Or that a power-play that was fourth in the National Hockey League last season would begin this one 0-for-15. Or that goaltending, always the biggest question heading into 2021, would be the least of Vancouver’s problems."

The Canucks are desperate right now we need to go into this knowing they are going to play us hard!

So were the Oilers last night. :)

One period here and 2 in bed for me, no doubt.:lol:

I hope the Oilers break out their next game and the Nucks keep on floundering. Price should be ready for these guys.

OK, but you had better be with us in spirit. :frech1:

Vancouver's PP this year is brutal so far, they have no PP goals... 0 in 15 chances.

Was KK recalled from the Taxi squad yet? I have not seen a press release saying he was and I know they only have until 5:00 to announce roster changes

Any shuffling back and forth on the taxi squad is only for cap purposes. He practiced on his regular line today so i fully expect him in the lineup.

I understand all of that, however for a player to be eligible to play on game day they have to be recalled to the active roster by 5:00pm EST on game day. It is now 4:40pm and I have not seen where KK was recalled yet.

I wasn't aware he had been sent to the taxi squad in the 1st place. I just assumed it was just an administration move to save cap and that he was playing tonight because he still practiced with the same linemates.

Yes it is an admin thing. He doesn't go anywhere just a paperwork filed with the league thing but if his paperwork isn't file to recall him before 5pm EST on game day he will be ineligible to play that day. Same goes for all transferred players.

They saved 8k per day in cap space while KK was on Taxi service

Smart.  And he's the highest paid player who is eligible for the taxi squad without having to clear waivers (I think Suzuki and Evans are the only other 2?)
