  • Gamethread, Lineups, and more: Wild vs. Canucks (7:00 p.m.)


    The Minnesota Wild are hosting the Vancouver Canucks in a battle between two teams that have zero points so far this season. Thrilling!

    One team has to earn the two points, but who will it be? The team that keeps on allowing multiple goals very early in the game and attempts to come back but falls short; or the team that scores some goals in the first two periods but seems to always suffer a late-game comeback from the other team. This is sort of the perfect fit of puzzle pieces and one will have to stop their streak eventually.

    Projected Wild lineup:

    Kirill Kaprizov — Ryan Hartman — Mats Zuccarello
    Jordan Greenway — Joel Eriksson Ek — Marcus Foligno
    Matt Boldy — Marco Rossi — Frederick Gaudreau
    Brandon Duhaime — Sam Steel — Tyson Jost

    Jake Middleton — Jared Spurgeon
    Jonas Brodin — Matt Dumba
    Alex Goligoski — Calen Addison

    Marc-Andre Fleury will be your starting goaltender.

    Marco Rossi is here with Matt Boldy, thank goodness — and we are finally getting to see the season debut of Jordan Greenway, Joel Eriksson Ek, and Marcus Foligno all playing together and forming one of the most dangerous two-way lines in all of hockey. It’s going to be an interesting lineup to keep track of who is working well with who.

    Projected Canucks lineup:

    Andrei Kuzmenko— Elias Pettersson — Vasily Podkolzin
    Conor Garland — J.T. Miller — Ilya Mikheyev
    Tanner Pearson — Bo Horvat — Brock Boeser
    Dakota Joshua — Nils Aman — Curtis Lazar

    Quinn Hughes — Luke Schenn
    Oliver Ekman-Larsson — Tyler Myers
    Riley Stillman — Kyle Burroghs

    Thatcher Demko is most likely starting tonight.

    This seems dangerous, but they are also scratching Nils Hoglander for no apparent reason. Oh well, sorry Canucks fans that your coach is scratching a talented young player. ...Wait, that sounds familiar.
