Canucks, Kings set to open series Wednesday
After clinching their second Presidents' Trophy in as many seasons, the Canucks will begin their quest for the franchise's first-ever Stanley Cup Wednesday night when they open their first-round series against the Los Angeles Kings.

Vancouver and L.A. are set to drop the puck in Game 1 at 10:30 ET. The game will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network in the U.S. and CBC in Canada.
Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
