It's a night of first for the Canucks in Minnesota. Matt Cooke will be the first ever player Mic'ed for a LIVE game on TSN. Not only that, but Markus Naslund took a picture from inside the team meeting as the guys were going over the game plan for tonight.
This is the first meeting between the two teams this season. Minnesota is struggling to score goals, but will get a boost as Marion Gaborik is slated to start either tonight or Friday against the Canucks. Dan Cloutier will get the start tonight for Vancouver.
