All the latest from the blue paint…
Canucks go back to Lack
Lack rebounded from a weak early goal to make 34 saves in a 4-3 loss to Winnipeg on Friday, and will look to build upon his solid numbers this season: 8-7-3, .919 save percentage, 2.28 GAA.
He’ll be going up against Jonas Gustavsson in the Detroit goal tonight.
Gettin’ Giggy with it
J.S. Giguere will make just his second start in a month tonight when the Avs take on the Devils.
Giguere’s last start came on Jan. 6 — a loss to Calgary in which he allowed four goals on 19 shots — and he’s been parked ever since, as Colorado head coach Patrick Roy has gone almost exclusively with Seymon Varlamov in goal (Giguere did get some relief time during a 7-2 loss to Toronto on Jan. 21.)
