Miller to back up Lack tonight versus Coyotes

2 Comments

Ryan Miller will be back in a Canucks uniform tonight when he backs up Eddie Lack versus the Coyotes.

Miller has not been in the lineup since suffering a sprained knee Feb. 22 on Long Island. It’s possible he could start Saturday versus Edmonton, allowing him to get some game action before the playoffs begin, while also giving Lack a rest.

Lack remains likely to start Game 1 of the playoffs next week, though coach Willie Desjardins has not publicly committed to either netminder.

Vancouver has already clinched a playoff spot and could, depending also on what happens in the Flames-Kings game, clinch second-place in the Pacific Division tonight.

The Canucks have sent Jacob Markstrom back to the AHL.
